Robin Thicke – Blurred Lines (Feat. T.I. & Pharrell)

In musique there shall always be the innovator, the original, that individual style of musique genre that only one artist can propel and make mainstream audiences and radio listeners fall in love with all over again as previous decades form with modern twists.

Robin Thicke's blue eyed soul demeanor can never be duplicated nor recycled. And amidst in a pond of infant Biebers and supposed "20/20 Experiences", Robin along with the help from his friends, rapper T.I. and producer/songwriter/rapper Pharrell Williams complete with what can be interpreted as a modern day Rat Pack, everything else aside, Thicke's first single from his upcoming 6th  album gives me the tingle that I wanna mingle all over the dance floor.

Without further ado kiddas, press play below and get ready to shake a tail feather!

i-D Has a Q&A With Lara Stone

March 19, 2013
The Q+A Issue: Lara

Tyrone Lebon on how he started, his Q+A cover and his stepdad’s giant new naked Lara Stone tattoo.

What made you want to become a photographer? It was an easy way to get close to, and explore the things I was interested in when I was a shy and awkward teenager.

When/ how did you start working with i-D? Terry Jones commissioned me to shoot portraits of my friends in Edinburgh when I was studying there when I was 19. He got my number from my dad who has worked with i-D since the 80s.

This is your first i-D cover, how did you decide on the shot? Sadly the choice wasn’t mine. I liked another shot in the story where Lara’s head is in a fruit bowl.

How did you and Charlotte come up with the concepts for the shoot? We wanted every image to be different. And I think overall we wanted it to be lighthearted, but still try and make powerful and interesting pictures.

How did you find working with Charlotte? Glorious! Charlotte is deadly serious and passionate about her work, but hugely encouraging and open and fun. There’s a lot of laughing when we shoot together which makes it a pleasure. Her right hand woman Katie Lyall is also a fabulous specimen of a human being.

You photographed your brother, your dad and your stepdad for the shoot, do you photograph them differently to other people? Or direct them differently? To try and make pictures more personally meaningful I like to include my family and friends. There are quite a few in this shoot. I think I approach everyone in the same way. But with people I know I am more aware of what I can get out of them so it’s more straightforward. Whereas when you photograph someone for the first time there are surprises.

Kate Moss Makes Sushi...Boxes

Last week we showed you model darling Kate Moss speaking dirty dirty words now this week shes selling sushi in a box!?

Even sushi restaurants are doing fashion collaborations these days. In her latest design gig, Kate Moss has collaborated with Sushi Shop, a sushi chain with locations all over the world (including Paris and New York), on a sushi box, WWD is reporting.

 The box, which costs about $58 and containts 40 pieces of sushi, is covered in sequins and has Kate Moss’s name on it. The supermodel, who is allegedly a sushi fan, follows previous Sushi Shop box collaborators Kenzo Takeda and Lenny Kravitz.

The collaboration was feted with a private party last night in Paris, which Kate Moss did not attend.

We’re not really sure we understand what’s exciting about eating out of a Kate Moss sushi box–is it like the expensive adult version of a Happy Meal?–though there are probably a few dirty jokes one could make out of the situation.

 Fresh we hope?

Photographer Lifts the Veil On His Infamous “Last Sitting” With Marilyn Monroe

Bert Stern: Original Madman The Photographer Lifts the Veil On His Infamous “Last Sitting” With Marilyn Monroe

Sheer scarves and accessories were the only clothes featured in Marilyn Monroe’s “Last Sitting,” shot at the Bel Air Hotel by the legendary Bert Stern for Vogue magazine in 1962. This and other defining career moments are detailed in Shannah Laumeister’s forthcoming documentary Bert Stern: Original Madman, that charts the photographer’s rise to stardom in the 1950s as one of the pioneers of the golden age of advertising. Born and raised in Brooklyn and untrained as a photographer, Stern took a job in the mailroom at Look magazine where he befriended young staff photographer Stanley Kubrick, who encouraged him to pick up a camera.

Stern would soon become known for his instantly iconic visuals for Smirnoff and Revlon campaigns but his obsession with women led him to become one of the most sought-after portraitists of his generation. With his laid-back, sensual style, Stern encouraged the starlets, models and actresses he shot to pose comfortably and openly. Now in his 80s, Stern continues to photograph women, including the documentary’s director Laumeister, who is herself a longtime muse. An accomplished actress as well as a filmmaker, Laumeister met Stern over 25 years ago when she was just 13 years old. Their friendship developed at first through his lens, then more intimately as she got older—and continues now as she turns the camera back onto him.
