In the last year or so, American-bred model Arizona Muse has completely taken the fashion world by storm, and with a face and last name like that, it's pretty easy to see why. But above even being beautiful or simply thin like most models, Muse posesses the power of versatility, a quality that's immediately apparent in this latest Vogue Paris editorial - New Kid in Town. Shot by Peter Lindbergh around Times Square, Arizona dons an assortment of sharply tailored suits, ties, and masculine fedoras as she clutches her Blackberry. In fact, passing her on the street you might think she was just another bustling New York City business man. Hats off to you both Muse and Vogue - this is how you do androgyny!

Popular French lingerie brand Passionata recently released their 2012 Fall/Winter collection, and for the third year in a row, Israeli bombshell Bar Rafeali is lending her gorgeous self to the campaign. Lucky them! Featuring a lovely assortment of everything from lace bodysuits to full garter & suspender sets, there's certainly no shortage of colors and styles to choose from. But if you ask me, the lookbook is way more fun than the pieces themselves. Shot in a postcard style with the illusion of Bar traveling the world, she dons flight attendant hats, totes aroung her sticker-covered luggage, and even bends down by a globe to plot her next move. Can't really blame em' for never wanting to use new models...

Animals in fashion editorials have become a pretty common thing - puppies, kittens, expensive horses, exotic monkey's, sometimes it'll really help bring a photoshoot to the next level. But Marie Claire Magazine recently released a spread where the animals are not only present, they're the ones modeling accessories - no humans included. Shot by Peter Lippmann and starring a fabulous assortment of perfectly plumed chickens, the story is aptly titled Couture Chicks, with each bird rocking a different set of jewelry. Luxurious chokers, golden cuffs, and rings as tiara's - it all seems pretty glamorous to me! Regardless, something tells me PETA was not too happy about this one...

When it comes to fashion editorials, no theme has been left untouched. Sexual fetish super-heroes, robotic space femmes on the moon, mental institutions overflowing with supermodels; it's all been done. So when I stumbled across this new October spread courtesy of Vogue Germany featuring an array of 'homeless chic' styles, I wasn't even that surprised. In fact, I've seen the same style editorial about a year ago done for Antidote Magazine, in which Magdalena Frackowiak sleeps on heaps of flattened Hermés boxes with dirt on her face. This time around it's the duo of Mirte Maas and Magdalena Langrova, taking to the streets of New York rather than Paris. Tattered hair, shopping carts full of soda cans, big bags full of who-knows-what, and then heaps upon heaps of messily layered Prada. If this is what the future of homelessness has in store for New Yorkers, where do we sign up?

Back in January, French-based Jalouse Magazine released a super awesome video titled Une Fille Commes Les Autres (A Girl Like The Others) which follows model Ashley Smith around Paris as she epitomizes everything a young French it-girl should be. Now they're back at it again with Part 2, taking the same concept and model, just with a bigger budget and more glamorous location. This time Ashley finds herself in Cannes - film festival season, of course. When she's not lounging by some fabulous pool, flooded with phone calls and text messages, she's off party hopping in the city with swarms of men dying to be on her arm. If that's a Jalouse girl, sign me up!
