Donna Karan Creates A Robot Fashion Model

I recently came across this Donna Karan campaign. Immediately, my eyes went right to her leg. It looked suspect to me, as if it didn’t belong. Perhaps it may be a visual illusion due to the way the clothing is placed versus how she is leaning. Or maybe, there’s another reason…

Hai Le explains, “I like to imagine that she’s a cyborg robot and he’s the evil scientist that built her and he has to repair her leg. This is the moment right when he’s pulling the leg off.”

There you have it, the hard hitting truth about Donna Karan’s latest campaign. We all know Donna, we all know! 

I just had to share Hai’s response to the original post here, it was too great to pass up.

One of our readers sent us a link to his beautiful work. I was floored with the concept and execution of light and model, entwined to create such amazing pieces of art. 
Please click on each thumbnail to see them in full detail. When asked what inspired him, he told us:

My inspiration stems from reading the work of Goethe and many books on science, especially cosmology and biology.  I love paintings ranging from Renaissance to Expressionism. 

I am also influenced by art films and theatre—especially the lighting.  

I am fascinated by the work of artists such as James Turrell who create environments in which the qualities and properties of light are replicated and enhanced in front of the viewer.  This is revelatory.

My aim is to mediate the properties of light via photography.

I love photographers with abstract visions of the world such as : Moholy-Nagy, Minor White, Man Ray, Alexander Rodchenko, Frederick Sommer, Paul Strand, Brett Weston, Aaron Siskind, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Tokihiro Sato and Alvin Langdon Coburn (Vortographs).

The greatest influence is the inexhaustible reality of light around us.  We just have to look deeper.

Every artist wants to reveal the invisible.

Missing Link: Vogue Russia Cover Model Has A Missing Arm

It’s still up for debate, is this just a matter of angle, or does Natasha Poly have a missing arm due to post production for the August issue of Vogue Russia?

So far, the discussion has split right down the middle. There are so many factors that support either direction.

What are your thoughts? 

Thank you to Cecil for sending this in!
