SHOWstudio's Fashion Fetish

Lucky for us fashion voyeurs, SHOWstudio will be releasing a series of short films interpreting the term 'fashion fetish' using recognisable faces from within the industry such as Lady Amanda Harlech, Lily Donaldson and Daphne Guinness to name a few. The first of these visual delights comes in the form of model-of-the-moment and my current favourite girl crush, Karlie Kloss who seduces the viewer in an array of underwear and wigs for this provocative Ruth Hogben-directed piece delicately entitled 'Fuck Me'.

Having stalked runways and dominated advertising campaigns the world over since she was 14 - by all accounts a genuine and unassuming young girl from St.Louis, Missouri - doors previously closed by legalities and social stigma have now been flung open for Kloss since her coming of age and the fashion industry are queuing up to have the 6-foot-1 model appear in more mature projects. Indeed since turning 18 Kloss has appeared in a controversial nude Vogue Italia spread and become one of Victoria's Secret's famous 'Angels', walking in their most recent lingerie show.

Any opportunity to stare at this inimitable beauty, Kloss also recently appeared in another SHOWstudio project this time under the direction of Nick Knight for a film focusing on Topshop's NewGen initiative and its landmark tenth birthday. In the film Karlie showcases the young British design talent from the scheme's successful last ten years including Mary Katrantzou, David Koma and Christopher Kane.
