Alexander McQueen was a creative genius and visionary and it’s impossible to imagine the world of fashion without him. The 40 year old award-winning British designer died on Thursday, February 11th at his London home.

McQueen liked to push people’s buttons. With the help of music-video producer Sam Gainsbury he transformed his catwalk shows into spectacular cinematic productions. The staging of his fashion shows were epic, intense productions that had something elemental – water, ice, fire, or live animals – taking you inside a world of his own creation, his shows transported you to another place. That was McQueen’s plan – he wanted you to feel breathless, shocked and full of emotion watching his show.

When you pulled back the curtain backstage at his show you never knew what was going to happen, but you always knew it was going to be something out of this world. Our crew was at his last show in Paris on October 6, 2009 and were one of the lucky few that were invited to shoot backstage.

The show called Plato’s Atlantis was perhaps one of his most extraordinary – an sensory explosion of fashion, beauty, technology and art. Alexander McQueen may be gone but he has left us with some of the most powerful visual experiences the world of fashion will ever know. We will all really miss him.

Natalia Vodianova is the new face of Stella McCartney’s Spring 2010 advertising campaign. The 28 year old supermodel and mother of three made a rare fashion week appearance opening Stella McCartney’s Spring 2010 runway show in Paris in October and we were there.

Natalia and Stella McCartney are good friends and they also share a similar point of view – loving fashion that is cool, comfortable and empowers women. As Natalia explained to us backstage,”..I love Stella’s clothes…they’re feminine, sexy but not over the top. It’s to empower women rather than put them in a cage of design……”

Shot by photographer Steven Klein it’s inspired by iconic Italian actress Anna Magnani in the 1951 Luchino Visconti film Bellissima. The ad campaign seeks to capture a woman’s human side through the simplicity of daily gestures, according to Dolce & Gabbana.

Clad in crocheted tops and dresses, floral skirts and leopard spots from the Italian label, Madonna washes dishes, eats spaghetti with her fingers and chops vegetables. The 8 campaign images were shot in black and white in Manhattan and will appear in magazines worldwide at the beginning of January. What do you think?
