Tommy Ton Backstage

Go backstage with Tommy Ton, fashion's hottest photo blogger and street style photographer at Milan and Paris Fashion week. In this exclusive behind the scenes video we discover why Tommy Ton's passionate eye and love of fashion has made him the most influential street style photographer working today. A self described "fashion paparazzi" Tommy documents the exotic trends, the colorful accessories and the stylish people at fashion month for Style.Com and GQ.COM and his popular blog Jak&Jil.

As Tommy explains the internet and the digital age has given people the chance to become a working professional overnight, "the fashion show is the new red carpet, everybody wants to be a part of this world, it's not so exclusive anymore. With the whole boom of the internet and blogging and twitter, people have become so connected to each other - it's a community that has grown so fast."  

MODTV's cameras captured Tommy in action from Milan to Paris and we spoke with some of his friends and fashion bloggers including Bryan Boy, Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist, Garance Dore and fashion editor Anna Dello Russo.  What's life of the hottest street style photo blogger really like?

Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia June 2010 | Video


This is a rare treat, being able to watch a shoot by photographer Steven Meisel that's been captured on video. Meisel is one of the world's hottest fashion photographers, and a regular contributor to Vogue Italia and Vogue USA. He never lets anyone shoot him on camera, and rarely lets any video crews on any of his sets. But perhaps now that Vogue Italia now has a hot new website, Vogue.it, it looks like the legendary photographer has had a change of heart.

A genius storyteller, for the June edition of Vogue Italia Steven Meisel looks to the wilderness for inspiration and shoots the story "Wild Is the Wind" with supermodel Eva Herzigova. It's a styled by Meisel's favorite beauty team - hairstylist Julien d'Ys and makeup artist Pat McGrath.

Everything Steven Meisel shoots is magic, and this one has a raw, enchanting mood about it. What can we say except we love it. Check out Vogue Italia's new website, the art direction is stunning and it's on our daily must read list.
