Bette Franke | Paul Maffi | Vogue India October 2010

There’s some serious fashion fusion going on in Paul Maffi’s images of Bette Franks for Vogue India October 2010. Styled by Deep Kailey, the iconic Indian sari takes on engaging style relevance — rather Antwerpian — in this exciting editorial. via Paper Mode

Crystal Renn | Leda & St. Jacques | Elle Canada December 2010

Looking every bit like an equestrian goddess, Crystal Renn becomes a ‘Show Girl’, lensed by Leda and St. Jacques for Elle Canada, December 2010.

Rare white horses typically bear the hero- or god-figure in ceremonial roles, or even a global saviour. Is this just a fabulous Elle Canada fashion shoot for Crystal Renn, or are these images yet another editorial in a growing list of female-centric tributes to woman as our 21st century goddess in charge of a deranged world? via FGR

Zen Sevastyanova | Paul de Luna | Meliae | Blank Magazine #55 | 

Photographer Paul de Luna captures purity and sensual poetry in his images of Zen Sevastyanova, styled by Sarah Parlow, for Blank Magazine #55 in an editorial called ‘Meliae’.

In ancient Greek mythology, the Meliae were nymphs of the ash tree and they appeared from the drops of blood spilled when Cronus castrated Uranus, according to Hesiod. From the Meliae emerged the race of humankind of the Bronze Age.

The editorial speaks to the ambiguity of immersing oneself in female sensuality in another form of baptism, the feeling of water splashing on one’s feet. Swans mate for life and are usually depicted in pairs as a symbol of monogamous relationships.

A third swan appearance in Paul de Luna’s images may be an innocent-enough prop or very subtle commentary on the nature of eroticism and sensual love. Associated with Aphrodite, swans represent chastity, which she was not.

Zeus took the form of a swan to seduce Leda. With nowhere to go but into Christian purity, the swan became a symbol for the Virgin Mary’s love — and also her virginity.

Anna, Viola & Özlem | Ayten Alpun | Marie Claire Turkey November 2010

We’re switching gears today, expanding the international nature of our Living channel to reflect the fact that Anne of Carversville has truly become an international website with a reach not only deep into Europe, but also into the Middle East and North Africa, where we are stronger than most American websites.

We honor and thank our readers from the Middle East and Africa, and in particular, Egypt and Morocco, where Anne has many friends.

Our hesitation in expanding our editorial coverage in Living, is that we’ve deliberately kept this channel non-political in a website devoted to the expansion of women’s rights internationally.

Introducing this Marie Claire Turkey, Ayten Alpun editorial into Living, we do so admitting that we’re not prepared to write the commentary. Turkey is a Muslim country with only a tiny minority of Christians. So we’re not clear how to interpret this fashion editorial, which is frankly more than a little bit decadent in its Catholic imagery of mystery, seduction and drama with models Anna, Viola, and Özlem as deeply religious yet sensually-tempted women.

In other channels, Anne’s feminism would run rampant on these images. Here, we feel compelled to maintain some decorum. Perhaps fashion milktoast just isn’t our style.

Ironically — if we stop to consider how Anne of Carversville’s international journey into women-speak began, it was in the world of fashion with this story: While the World Debates Burqas, Fashion Designers Show Beautiful Abayas at Paris’s George V Hotel.

Perhaps we should just stop asking questions tonight and go with the flow, trusting our instincts to follow fashion editorial as a common interest among the world’s women. We’d love to hear your thoughts, as we set off for India, China, the Middle East and all ports of call that represent Anne’s great love of all the world’s women.

Benjamin Kanarek | Luana Tiefke | Symphony on Ice | Vogue Brazil Sept 2010

There’s a reason why Toronto-native, Parisian-based photographer Benjamin Kanarek and I get along. In our digital-technology world of bullet-point, pulsating micro-moments, Benjamin Kanarek rows his production boat in the manner of a Manet painting.

His video of making “Symphony on Ice”, featuring model Luana Tiefke wearing Chanel in the September 2010 issue of Vogue Brazil, is a great example of Benjamin Kanarek in action. See Benjamin’s blog.

Don’t misunderstand me. It would be my kiss of fashion death to him, to describe Kanarek as refreshingly calming, superbly creative, artistically competent and — god forbid — having an accesible personality, in the frenetic world of fashion photography.

I’m sure Benjamin kicks serious butt as needed, but he’s just so not a diva, so not-self-absorbed, and so not full of himself, in spite of his considerable talent.

Fashion Shoot 101

You know the fashion video drill. Hair flying, music pulsating, everyone is beautiful and talented beyond belief. This business is not for mere mortals, but for God’s chosen people.

And excuse me, can you please get the whole video scene down to 90 seconds, because Internet viewers have no interest in understanding the genuine substance of working on a fashion shoot. Just give them the glossies, damn it. Readers don’t care about process; Powerpoint it.

Au contraire.

Benjamin Kanarek | "Fly Me to the Moon" | Bloggers & Artistic Freedom 

Admittedly the sounds of  “Also Sprach Zarathustra” and Stanley Kubrick’s movie “2001 Space Odyssey” are favorite artistic inspirations of mine.  We adore this Harper’s Bazaar China Aug. 2010 fashion editorial “Fly Me to the Moon” and video that tap into the futuristic zeitgeist and also a vision of new Asian beauty, one that challenges Western standards. See original photos here on Benjamin Kanarek Blog.

There is a minor fashion industry, blogger brouhaha brewing around Benjamin Kanarek’s “Fly Me to the Moon” video and editorial, which was not chosen for exposure by one of the leading fashion scan blogs. Editorial decisions always belong with the website owner, and we can’t begin to cover all the materials we would love to write about here at Anne of Carversville and Sensuality News. 

Benjamin Kanarek’s Making of “Fly Me to the Moon”

In the case of photographer Benjamin Kanarek’s “Fly me to the Moon” editorial for Harper’s Bazaar China Aug 2010, it seems that a mistake has been made.

Both the image editorial and accompanying video are an artistic revelation, and we want to offer our unwavering support of this premium-quality creativity in fashion imagery and messages. 

Evidence of an editorial shakeout in fashion blogging is emerging, and we’re seeing a fault line developing between creatives who have something to say, and those who don’t. The standard scan fare will soon be separated from the gourmet offering of photos with thoughtful commentary or comment dialogue.
