Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Models, News, Sales

Barneys Ad

Although Barneys was in hot water over racial profiling allegations several months ago, the high-end retailer is making strides in the LGBTQ community with their latest ad campaign, which features trans* models.

The series - shot in black and white by famed photographer Bruce Weber - features 17 models (some professional models, while others are students, activists, and musicians) dressed in designer duds and situated among their family members. Titled “Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters," the images will be accompanied by interviews with the models sharing their personal stories regarding their lives as trans* people. “I hope that my photographs and films of these 17 new friends, who are transgender men and women, convey the respect I have for them and how I stand in awe of their courage to face the world,” Weber said.

Photographer Bruce Weber Praises Kim Kardashian

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities

Kim Kardashian on the cover of 'DuJour'Kim Kardashian was more professional on set than real models, according to photographer Bruce Weber.

The famed lensman insists the Keeping up with the Kardashians star was "wonderful" to work with and he chose to shoot her for the March cover issue of high fashion magazine DuJour because of her warm persona around staff on set.

Weber - who has snapped such icons as Cindy Crawford and the late Elizabeth Taylor - revealed that Kim is more favorable to work with than many other models and celebrities he has shot: "At first I wanted to photograph her mom, Kris Jenner. She [Kim] came to the set. I always judge the person I'm going to photograph by how they are with my assistants and my crew - she looked at each one and introduced herself. She was just so personable with everyone. She was wonderful."

Kristen Stewart to Front Balenciaga Fragrances

Kristen StewartKristen Stewart is to become the face of Balenciaga fragrances. The Twilight Saga actress - who has previously confessed to not knowing much about the fashion world - is excited to be involved with the "cool" brand, as she has always been a big fan of the Spanish design house.

"Balenciaga has always stood out to me. Even when I first began to consider fashion and admittedly rarely knew the brand I was wearing, I always knew and loved Balenciaga. It feels full circle to be involved with something that spoke to me then and of course continues to excite me now. The brand is just cool. That's the way it is."

Creative director of the brand Nicolas Ghesquiere admitted Kristen was great for Balenciaga because of her "progressive character": "Kristen embodies the modernity of the new Balenciaga fragrance with her unique sensibility and intelligence. From her early appearance in Panic Room to her independent choice of Welcome to the Rileys, I've always sensed her progressive character. In 2006, I invited her to appear in a project shot by Bruce Weber. Since then, I've always wished to collaborate with her further, knowing that she shares the radical spirit of Balenciaga."


Mia Wasikowska to Front Miu Miu Campaign

Mia Wasikowska for Miu MiuMia Wasikowska has replaced Hailee Steinfeld as the face of Miu Miu.

The Jane Eyre actress is set to star in the Spring/Summer 2012 campaign for the Italian fashion brand and the promotional shots - taken in London in December - will show Mia wearing black eyeliner, red lipstick and showcasing the latest designs along with accessories and handbags.

Hailee, 14, was recruited by Miu Miu in May but quickly ran into controversy when an image from her campaign was removed over safety concerns. The picture - taken by fashion photographer and film-maker Bruce Weber and showing the True Grit actress sitting on a train track while wiping away a tear - was blasted by the Advertising Standards Authority as "irresponsible" because it depicts a child in an unsafe location.
