Annex Mag x Brad Goreski ‘Let The Sunshine’ BTS Exclusive

This summer, Annex dropped by former cover star, Brad Goreski‘s Let the Sun Shine shoot featuring Mr. Brad Goreski, styled by himself! His daily routine consists of styling the best’s’ of Hollywood, but we asked him to style himself this time. Detailed florals, athletic sandals, and basically a very sexy Calvin Klein ad, come together behind the lens, where Brad sees men’s looks going this summer. Whether summer means the office, the beach, or running around town, he’s got you covered. Photographer Kaleb Khu captures Brad constantly smiling, as he weighs the differences between being behind the camera and being in front of it – broody and all.

We asked Brad what’s he been up to:

Annex: You’re usually on the other side of the camera styling A-listers – what is it like being in front of the lens for a change?

Brad Goreski: It’s fun being in front of the camera but it’s stressful. I don’t know how models do it! It’s not as easy as it seems.

A: How does the process differ from styling a client and styling yourself for a big shoot?

BG: I know exactly what I want to wear so there’s no gray area about whether or not the client will love the pull.

Pharrell’s new song “come get it bae” features the always unpredictable Miley Cyrus and a groovy beat perfect for dancing. This may be the reason that William’s new music video for this song shows a multitude of dancers shimmying and dipping to the catchy anthem.

Kate Moss x Stella McCartney: Will It Ever Get Old?

Answer: No, it probably wont.

This is Kate’s 7th campaign for Stella McCartney and we can’t say we are at all mad about it.
They are indeed a wonderful combo and we wouldn’t trade it for the world.

For this fall, Moss was styled by, long-time friend, Stella McCartney herself and photographed in London by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

The ads which feature Moss in a frame of zippered boarders with naturally textured backgrounds is whimsical, sophisticated and winter themed (i.e. the iceberg background textures in a few of the ads) – in the least obvious of ways.

The focus of the campaign, apparently, was meant to be the Cavendish bag, but we can’t help letting our eye wander to the outskirts of the images where we are finding so much attention to detail.

That is to say, we love it. The entire campaign is a winner in our eyes and we hope you love it just as much as we do, enjoy!

WCW: Danielle Campbell

Danielle-Campbell-The-Originals-Season-1-Photoshoot-the-originals-tv-show-35533511-500-580

From being the ever-so-sweet and innocent baby faced girl who falls in love with superstar “mega-babe”, Sterling Knight, in Disney’s StarStruckDanielle Campbell, has caught our hearts and dragged them over to the CW where she now plays a less innocent roll as a witch on The Originals.

Danielle was born in a small town in Illinois and was discovered at a hair salon in Chicago. Don’t you just love those kinds of stories? The ones who don’t go looking for it but instead just get found - I guess I should hangout at more hair salons.

Being cast in the main cast on The Originals has led to many great things for Campbell within the past few years. Most recently, it was announced that Danielle signed on to a project with Luke Benward called 16 South, it is still in development so there isn’t too much to be said about the project. However, with two cuties like them I bet this will be something you won’t want to miss.

Constantly with a smile on her face, Danielle seems like the kind of girl you would want as a best friend and we love that about her!
To keep up to date with the adorable and charming Danielle, follow her on Instagram (@thedaniellecampbell) where she posts fun photos from behind the scenes on The Originals as well as flashes from her fashionable and entertaining life.

Talented, a sweet pretty face and still so young, we are thinking great things are coming for this girl!968full-danielle-campbell

Annex Exclusive: Starring Rooftop Hottie Marvin Cortes

Marvin_Annexmag3

Marvin Cortes is a total hottie that was blessed with his hunky looks. Using his God-given talents, he’s found his niche and the perfect industry that fits his requirements. Model from NY, runner up for America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20, and amusement park enthusiast, Marvin (Twitter & Instagram) packs a lot of personality.

Marvin_Annexmag4

Marvin wears LURA eyewear, David Giampicollo, and Creative Recreation.

He feels most comfortable in front of a camera – lensed by Mat Abad a.k.a. BadBoi and styled by Jeremy’s Image - where he’s able to show his personality best. He doesn’t like to take himself too seriously, where’s the fun in that? His contagious big, cheesy smile can brighten literally any room.

The reason he chose being a contestant on ANTM rather than going a traditional modeling route was simple. The benefits of being on a show with Tyra Banks, being able to travel the world, and meet incredible minds and celebrities like Katy Perry, Johnny Wujek and many more, is a bargain you cannot pass up. It shot his modeling career straight into the fast lane, and he’s been busy booking deals ever since. He shares with Annex Mag what a good day on set looks like, “When theirs food for sure. No, but in all honesty, a great day on set is when everyone is on point. Everyone knows their job and it all flows so naturally because everyone’s work ethic is synonymous. I also love just having conversations with the team. I like it when we are able to talk about more than just fashion. That’s a good day on set: food, being on top of your game, good conversation. That’s it.”

Marvin_Annexmag2

He’s far from where he once was, but not yet where he wants to be. He dreams of someday soon modeling for brands like Dsquared2, Diesel, and Givenchy.

Obsessed: Prince George and His First Royal Year in Fashion

PrinceGeorge13

Of course there are many reasons to adore this little hunk of british bred royalty.
One of which being that it is his first birthday, and well, who can really deprive a child lots of love on their first birthday? Most definitely not I, that is for sure!

So of course we are obsessed with this little munchkin. But, we wanted to point out more than just his stature and that he will someday rule one of the greatest nations on planet earth – just as important, isn’t he always dressed impeccably?

From his overalls, to his cardigans and his monochromatic looks to stripes and sail boats, this baby has got it going on.

So, here is to one royal year of spectacular outfits and we can’t wait to see what you’ll be wearing once you are dressing yourself!
Happy Birthday Prince George of Cambridge!
