Last week it was announced that Ben Reardon has stepped down as editor of i-D and is now heading up GQ Style. Taschen have since not wasted any time and have announced the magazine's deputy edior, Holly Shackleton, will take the top spot.
Reardon left the magazine with a successful September issue with three great covers - Kate Moss, Lady Gaga and Naomi Campbell - all shot by Steven Klein. "I'm excited to further develop i-D's position at the forefront of the style press," Shackleton told WWD.
Amongst a flurry of rumours, some about marriage, some about children, Miranda Kerr's publicist confirmed on Friday that the Victoria's Secret beauty had indeed gotten married to sweetheart Orlando Bloom overnight. It seems the Australian model's love life isn't the only blissful thing in Kerr's life at the moment - high fashion (in particular, Italian) brands seem to love Kerr's look, with a flurry of high-end shoots recently.
The latest in a long line saw the model starring in Jil Sander's Fall 2010 campaign, shot, as usual by Willy Vandeperre, following her spots in the Prada campaign, as well as shoots in American Vogue, Numéro, i-D, Love and V.
She might have been signed six years ago by IMG and landed a number of high end jobs since then, but this Summer really is the season ofFreja Beha Erichsen, the 22 year old Danish model known for her signature walk, bad girl look and androgynous figure.
This year has seen the slight model grace the coveted Spring/Summer covers of i-D and Numéro Homme, the August covers of French and British Vogue as well as appearing in a multitude of high end campaigns - Max Mara, Valentino, Chanel and Tom Ford Eyewear to name a few. Featuring in Balenciaga's upcoming campaign, Freja is now ranked no.2 on Models.com coming just behind the goddess of curves, Lara Stone. It seems there's no stopping fashion's favourite bad girl!
After giving birth in December, Jourdan Dunn has been a busy girl. In February she made her runway comeback at Aquascutum and has recently been shot for an editorial for US Vogue's September issue and was spotted on set of a beauty shoot for i-D.
If that wasn't enough, the latest Victoria's Secret catalogue also features the 20 year-old model which has sparked rumours that she is being signed as the latest angel particularly after it was announced that angel Doutzen Kroes is taking time off to have a baby.
We haven't seen much of Jourdan Dunn since she gave birth to her son last December but it looks like she's back to work and on a roll after her break.
Recently it was reported that she was shot for a fashion story for the September issue of American Vogue - which also stars Stella Tennant and Liya Kebede - and yesterday i-D tweeted this image of the model from the set of a beauty shoot for their Fall 2010 issue.
The Spring/Summer issue of i-D, out tomorrow, is set to be a treat. As we reported yesterday, Sasha Pivovarova, Natalia Vodianova and Freja Beha Erichsen have all been shot for the issue's different covers. If that wasn't enough, Dree Hemingway styles herself in a 'Home Is Where The Heart Is' inspired shoot allegedly shot at her grandfather Ernest Hemingway's home.
The magazine has more exciting news as they announced that their website is set for a redesign, which will be unveiled in May.
Not only a photographer but also director of SHOWstudio, Nick Knight is responsible for bringing fashion media to the masses. Having won numerous awards for his work with magazines such as Vogue, Dazed and Confused, i-D and W, as well as fashion and advertising projects for clients including Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein, Levi Strauss, Yohji Yamamoto and Yves Saint Laurent, Knight's images still dominate magazine covers. Having built on his success since the early '80s photographing skinheads and gang culture, Knight has always pushed the boundaries of fashion photography exploring what is beautiful and often possible. He says about his love of photography: "It's a ticket to photograph the President of the US, or a heroin addict in Camden, or a prostitute in Paris, or the biggest recording star in the world. Becoming a photographer is a way of finding out about people – finding out about life – and experiencing what they experience."
His work is featured in i-D, Another Man and Numero to name a few, and he has created advertising pieces for industry giants to include Giorgio Armani, Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. Now, renowned photographer Solve Sundsbo is turning his hand at designing, with three pieces created for creative agency and label of the moment, Surface to Air. Using three prints inspired by 'Parrot', 'Dry Cleaner' and 'Hair', Sundsbo has designed a dress, top and a dry bag, all of which are available in each print, and can be purchased on the Surface to Air website, starting at 140 euros.
