Magdalena Frackowiak always looks fierce but she's taken it to another level for the "Lipstick Issue" of Exhibition Magazine. Trading her usually-blonde locks for a fiery red, not too dissimilar from Rihanna's shade of choice, we see a polished-to-perfection Magdalena being primped and preened by several pairs of hands. The Victoria's Secret angel, who starred in last year's Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy campaign, also sports this season's hottest nail shape: the stiletto. Check out the whole shoot below, and tell us whether you think Magda should stick with her red hair or switch it back stat . . . We're kinda liking it.
She's the face of Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy, one of the stunning Victoria Secret Angels and now Magdalena Frackowiak is featured in the Winter 2010 issue of Muse Magazine. She's sporting some serious hair extensions as opposed to her usual shorter, medium-brown locks. I love a model that can work two polar opposite looks, and Magdelena here is case in point. Her extensions make her look go from ethereal beauty to total sex bomb. Whaddya reck? Are you loving her rockstar look, or do you prefer her au naturel?
If you're feeling a little less of the razzle-dazzle and more frazzled at the prospect of finding something to wear for all of your holiday occasions, don't throw in the towel just yet. While we're hoping our dress guides and festive alternatives have inspired some outfit creativity, who better to offer a real-life example than our favourite celebs and models? We've turned to the red carpet pros to draw some dressing inspiration — festive LRDs, sequins and sparkle, and femme frocks to get you feeling festive and looking your best.
After seeing the hot machine that was the 2011 Pirelli Calendar we needed a quiet lie down! Full to the brim with ridiculously gorgeous models (Daria Werbowy, Freja Beha Erichsen, Anja Rubik and Erin Wasson to name a few), Karl Lagerfeld really upped the ante for his Mythology masterpiece. The behind the scenes footage of the shoot is just as pervy, as we get to see the K-master hard at work snapping away at scantily clad Abbey Lee Kershaw and Julianne Moore. Mr Lagerfeld picked the "boys and the girls who are best in their job today" for the famed calendar (no B grade talent for Karl!) and Magdalena Frackowiak expands on the honour of being a Pirelli girl. Got a minute twenty spare? Press play to see all the action.
The Pirelli Calandar is always a steamy affair; bikini clad models lounging by the beach and lookin' all cheeky 'n' such. Oh no wait, that was Terry Richardson's sexy take on things last year! Karl Largerfeld has taken a more high brow approach for his 2011 interpretation; looking to the Bacchus painting by Baroque master Caravaggio for inpsiration. The calendar will stick to the gods of Greek and Roman mythology theme, and we're guessing we'll see LOTS of strategically placed togas and fresh fruit head pieces on Pirelli peeps Heidi Mount, Natasha Poly, Magdalena Frackowiak and Elisa Sednaoui. This picture of Isabeli Fontana (of Victoria's Secret hotness), Garrett and Bianca Balti was taken in Karl's Paris studio back in April, and we can't wait to see the entire 12 months worth of mythological magic when it launches in December.
And it's not even due to hit shelves until DECEMBER. Can you believe it? I feel, in part, responsible. We were one of the first to point you in the direction of baby blue nail polish as soon as we spied it on Abbey Lee Kershaw's hands at the Chanel Cruise Collection. Then we when saw the colour on the beaut-iful Magdalena Frackowiak and that was that. We were in LOVE with this little gem of a pearlescent sky blue: Chanel Le Vernis Riva ($39).
It's the new Jade and then some, selling out months before it hits shelves. Expect eBay prices to sky-rocket and women worldwide to cry and stamp their feet when they can't get their hands on it. But because we so-hate to disappoint, we've rounded up a few dupes of the gorgeously pearly blue below. Whaddya think of the new "it" shade? To. Die. For. Isn't she? Sigh. Want. NEED. Want.
This weekend, Karl Lagerfeld unveiled his collaboration with Hogan by revealing a short film which he directed for the label. It stars Karl's favourite male model Jean Baptiste Giabiconi alongside Polish model Magdalena Frackowiak (no Oscar-worthy performances here, folks!). The black and white short story is entitled La Lettre and is about a couple arguing over a mysterious letter. The collection, which is highlighted throughout the film, includes cowboy boots, sporty separates, leather accessories and a trench coat. Ch ch check it out.
Lanvin's been keeping busy this summer. In addition to debuting its new boutique in St. Tropez, the brand is also working on a new interactive website. While we anxiously wait for the latter, let's take a look at its edgy autumn/winter 2010-2011 campaign shot by Steven Meisel. In his own magical way, Alber Elbaz fused hardcore with elegance. Check out models Magdalena Frackowiak, Anja Rubik, and Mariacarla Boscono wearing a mix of shiny lamé, icy grey, and embellished black dresses.The slick silver box backdrop is a good contrast against Alber's textured masterpieces and we love the tough accessories. Dramatic makeup — via dark raccoon eyes and punchy pink lips — are simply awesome. Your thoughts?
It's always exciting when a new designer fragrance is unveiled and I nearly died and went to fragrance heaven when I heard about the latest one from Givenchy. Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy (from $89) is set for release on April 19 and embodies the "core aristocratic values of the brand as well as its couture spirit," according to The Scented Salamander. It focuses heavily on Turkish rose but also includes notes of mandarin, ylang ylang, orange blossom, cedar wood and tonka bean. I particularly love the vintage charm of the flacon, but tell me, what do you think of the ad campaign featuring the ethereal Magdalena Frackowiak?
