Enigmatic 90s fashion icon Kristen McMenamy graces the cover of Dazed & Confused this August. Artist Tierney Gearon and Dazed fashion director Karen Langley headed for the woods of upstate New York with Kristen to capture her untamable attitude, a legendary model who continues to shake up the fashion world even as she turns 46. Art photographer Roe Ethridge combines forces with senior fashion editor Katie Shillingford for a unique portfolio that reimagines seven of today’s supermodels as they’ve never been seen before.
We also travel to Nashville to hang out with supermodel- turned-country-chanteuse Karen Elson, who talks creative fulﬁllment and life with husband Jack White, shot by artist Marlene Marino. Karen Langley says: “In this issue of Dazed, we wanted to explore the forces that set the fashion world alight, and matched up some of the greatest art photographers with the world’s leading supermodels. The results were amazing!”
This issue also announces some changes in the Dazed fashion department. Karen Langley has been appointed fashion director, while Katie Shillingford becomes senior fashion editor and Robbie Spencer becomes senior menswear editor. Also in the issue, Dazed spends a day with underground ﬁlmmaker Jonas Mekas who worked with Andy Warhol and The Velvet Underground. We speak with French cinema’s grand dame Isabelle Huppert, and ﬁnd out if bass supergroup Magnetic Man will make 2010 the year that dubstep conquers the mainstream.
