Video: Karl Lagerfeld Shoots the Pirelli Calendar 2011

It’s definitely nudity, but not as we know it – this is nudity in its highest art form. The world’s most beautiful women, shot by one of the most celebrated artists of our time, Karl Lagerfeld. Natasha Poly, Lara Stone, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Julianne Moore and Freja are just some of the gorgeous models in this year’s Pirelli calendar, based on the gods and goddesses of Greek mythology. Makeup by Peter Phillips, and hair by Sam McKnight.

 


 

Video: Lily Donaldson’s Flying Hair

Check out this fabulous video of Lily Donaldson’s hair, in super slow-mo. Shot by her father Matthew Donaldson, a famed London photographer, and with Sam McKnight one of my favourite hairdressers on hair, it’s an extraordinary piece of fashion film-making.
I also found a Behind the Scenes version which shows Sam’s assistant Eamonn Hughes prepping Lily’s hair (Eamonn is also an amazing hairdresser – you don’t assist someone like Sam for years without being incredible!) And Val Garland on makeup. Enjoy.
