Eniko Mahalik by Willy Vanderperre, styled by Panos Yiapanis for AnOther magazine Spring/Summer 2010 via tFS
May be a teensy bit "old" in Internet-years, but I'm still not over the genius that Panos Yiapanis lent to this spread (and video) for AnOther mag. Too many editorial stylists feature looks that are more or less straight off the runway. While one could potentially blame advertising contracts, general trepidation or just the Anna Dello Russo ethos, I personally find it completely uninspired and even more so - lazy. And as a consumer, it doesn't give me any new incentive to buy the clothes. I'm a firm believer that if there's a will, there is a way to be innovative with even the most commercial of jobs (which AnOther is not, but you get the point). Luckily, AnOther is always food for the vision-starved and this spread especially highlights Panos' artistry. This signature stylist/magazine combo is definitely one of my favorites.
I would also like to point out & applaud the AMAZING credits that AnOther includes with their shoots. It is so rare to see a publication crediting everyone for their work. Sometimes great ideas on-set originate from someone other than the leads and it can take a lot of people to pull off a great shoot - yet very rarely is everyone (Photo Assistants, Fashion/Stylist Assistants, Studio, Post, etc.) given due credit. I speak from experience.
Oh and of course, I've already begun twisting and cocooning up my shirts and cutting the cups out of my old bras... We'll see what becomes of that IRL...
