Casting Director James Scully Wishes Fashion Models Were Not Paid In Trade

You know, unpaid interns aren’t the only ones who are upset about doing their jobs for no money. Many models get paid in trade (the clothes they wear on the runway) which, unfortunately, doesn’t go a long way in terms of covering your electrical bill.

Pregnant Lara Stone's Head Is On A Platter (NSFW)

For i-D magazine’s Q&A issue, photographer Tyrone Lebon and fashion director Charlotte Stockdale shot five covers. However, the shoot involving Lara Stone has caught everybody’s eye, as she’s not only six months pregnant in the pictures, she also has her head on a platter. A fruit platter, specifically, which doesn’t really change the fact that her head’s on a plate of food. Despite loving the colors, I still find it…unnerving. More »
