Here is the continuation of what will probably become a recurring style of shoot I will offer the models here at the Matthew Agency.  The simplicity of this style of photography really allows us to show off the model him/herself which is, after all, the point!

By   1 year ago

The Design 1 Fashion Event has possibly become one of the biggest fashion events in Grand Rapids every year, taking place in the blustery cold of December.  And this year, it was conspicuously absent from the roster of winter’s fashion events.  I’ve received the question untold dozen’s of times now; “What happened to the Design […]

By   2 years ago

The “big move” by local fashion retail boutique A.K. Rikk’s to its new free-standing, impeccably designed store has been simmering under a lid of secrecy since store President Jim Murray made the big announcement in the spring.  With the anticipation building, Murray and his team opened their doors today for industry insiders and press to […]

I Want That! Paisley Tie by Etro

photo 1

By   2 years ago

It is no secret that paisley print is a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s playful, over the top whimsy makes me smile every time I see it. I enjoy the pattern so much that my old lime-gold mustang bore it as her name: Paisley Damage (she was a fierce bitch). She’s since been replaced with […]

Natural – Mona Johannesson for JCrew

mona0

By   1 year ago

WHAT WE LIKE: Sometimes, less is more!  We adore how natural model Mona Johannesson looks in these images for JCrew‘s April Style Guide.  These images are all about effortless style with simple make-up, perfectly-imperfect hair and a casual all-white wardrobe.  The simplicity allows the focus to pull into the chunks of color in the jewelry.  […]

Crazy – Coco Rocha for Hunger Magazine

coco3

By   1 year ago

WHAT WE LIKE: The queen of posing and the champion of the new-world idea of modeling, you can’t flip a single page of a fashion magazine without seeing the face of Coco Rocha.  In a video for Hunger TV shot by Rankin, Rocha displays a little crazy while rocking out in Roberto Cavalli.  In these images […]

Uncomfortable – Miranda Kerr for Vogue Australia

MirandaKerrVogueShoot8

By   1 year ago

WHAT WE LIKE: Model Miranda Kerr may be best known as an one of Victoria’s Angels, but in these images photographed by Miguel Reveriego for Vogue Australia, she covers up a little more and shows off her fashion side. Posing on a set like this can be awkward and difficult.  In the first picture above, you […]

Delicate – Sui He for Harpers Bazaar China

00

By   1 year ago

WHAT WE LIKE: This image of model Sui He wearing Miu Miu is part of a feature cover story in March’s Harper’s Bazaar China.  Not only does her skin appear to be pure porcelain, but even her pose and posture suggests a delicate doll that might break at the slightest touch.  There is a graceful […]

Kissable – Bianca Balti for D&G

0

By   1 year ago

WHAT WE LIKE: In Dolce & Gabbana’s newest advertisement for their fragrance “Light Blue” the gorgeous Italian Bianca Balti practically shouts “Come kiss me!” With the subtle pout to the lips, the ever-popular come-hither stare and the slightly shy posture of her body, she dares the viewer not to want to touch their lips to […]

Strength – JLo for Harper’s Bazar

Jennifer-Lopez-Harpers-Bazaar-February0

By   1 year ago

WHAT WE LIKE: Jennifer Lopez certainly isn’t showing off her shy, demur side on this stunning cover of February’s Harper’s Bazaar Magazine.  Perhaps its the gladiator thigh-high heels, or perhaps its the dress that conjures thoughts of a chain-mail-clad warrior, but the woman is showing Strength with a capitol S!  There’s “hands on the hips,” […]

Finding Light – Crystal Renn for Zac Posen

PREFALL0

By   1 year ago

WHAT WE LIKE: In this image for Zac Posen’s pre-fall collection, model Crystal Renn shows us she knows how to find her light. Here, she not only finds the key light, but practically glows with it.  Even with the black dress and her discernibly dark features, Renn is able to beam with light.  Her eyes, […]
