In honor of the EURO Cup 2012, we thought we’d resurface one of our favorite videos shot for BEBE, Beauty in the World Cup 2010. Directed by Giuliano Bekor, this video features the vocal talents of Macy Gray and captures the athleticism and elegance of the women’s soccer thanks to the lovely ladies of LA MODELS. Enjoy!
While one of our favorite shows ended, another began. True Blood’s fifth season started last night and we couldn’t wait to sink our teeth into these handsome stars, Ryan Kwanten and Sam Trammell. Giuliano Bekor shot the actors, known respectively as Jason Stackhouse and Sam Merlotte on the HBO’s hit vampire series. We have shown you these shots before, but with faces like those, who wouldn’t want to see them again? Enjoy Truebies!
Last night was the finale of Mad Men’s fifth season and we are going to miss Manhattan’s dapper ad-men. To bid adieu to our favorite drama, we remember the lovely Alison Brie, shot by Giuliano Bekor for ELLE Canada‘s April issue. The actress, also known as Mrs. Trudy Campbell, embodied the retro glamour that the show is known for starting with the cover shot: she wears a mint green dress by Vera Wang on the roof at the Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
The old Hollywood look was flawlessly achieved thanks to stylist Anita Patrickson and make-up artist, Sage Maitri, of The Wall Group. Alison’s beautiful hair styling was done by Robert Ramos and Gilbert Muniz of Cloutier Remix. We can’t forget those bright, spring nails by Debbie Leavitt of Cloutier Remix.
Alison’s beauty reminds us that Don Draper isn’t the only one we are going to be missing. We can’t wait for season six!
During the spring and summer seasons, we can always count on handbags and colorful clutches to be trending. Giuliano Bekor shot this beauty story featuring the best in designer handbags, complimented by vibrant make-up and bold nail colors like those created by essie. This collection features handbags, modeled by Alexandrina Turcan of Major Model Management, designed by (in respective order) Escada, FENDI, Valentino, Versace, and Bottega Veneta. After spending some time browsing the latest beauty and fashion tips on blogs like DailyCandy, we make our contribution in the best way that we know: combining style with art.
Celebrating her 60th anniversary as the U.K.’s monarch, the queen continued with a trip to the Epsom Derby on Saturday, marking the first major event of her Diamond Jubilee weekend. As we are thinking of the festivities across the pond, we can’t help but think of the extravagant hats of the English derby. Today, we join the party, honoring Queen Elizabeth’s majesty and the daring derby couture with a few photos from our fine art collection, Mystique.
Mystique provokes one’s feminine side in a way that is unconventionally fashionable. The antique ambience combined with the rich personality of the collection teases the parallel between masculinity and femininity. For more from this collection, visit Giuliano Bekor’s fine art page .
Today we are focused on actress, model, singer, and arguably one of the most beautiful women to have walked the Earth, Marilyn Monroe. The sexy and talented leading lady is remembered most for her iconic fashion and retro glamour- defining the “Monroe-era” look that inspired this glamorous photo shoot by Giuliano Bekor. With blonde bombshells, sexy show-girls, and fluttering lashes, this collection embodies some of Marilyn’s biggest movies and most memorable characters. Her look- red lips, glossy skin, and thick liner- has been idolized by Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Dior, Jason Wu, Temperley London, Yves Saint Laurent during spring/summer fashion week. Marilyn Monroe is our star today, reminding us that our art continues to capture the epitome of allure and style as it has since June 1st, 1926. Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe!
