All this week, we’re celebrating StyleCaster’s fifth anniversary with a look back at some of our most memorable pieces. From original editorials and celebrity shoots to staffers’ musings on what makes our company so special, it’s time to commemorate the fun-filled (and at times crazy) journey we’ve gone on to get here. Read on for some of our favorite content, and join in on the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #SC5thBDay!
The latest installment of StyleCaster’s cover series showcases the multi-faceted talents of model Crystal Renn, and her ability to handle characters with varying energy and direction. Cameron Krone photographs Crystal in, “In Her Skin,” as she channels the strength we remember from Madonna in the ’90s. Referencing Madonna‘s Human Nature video, “I wanted Crystal to explore the same dynamic movement, but bring her own refinement to that character,” explains James Worthington DeMolet, the projects stylist.
We turned to the Spring 2011 Altuzarra collection to convey our modern day vision. Krone captures Crystals awe inspiring angles as she bends and breaks for the camera.
