Behind The Scenes: Jessica Stam For Russh Magazine

The April/May issue of Russh Magazine hits newsstands today, with one of their most ‘pick me up and buy me’ covers yet, featuring supermodel Jessica Stam. Brazenly proclaiming ‘Electric and Tripped Out, Take It Or Leave It’, the Stam shoot photographed by Will Davidson sees an edgier side to the doll-faced Canadian model. Punk inspired looks with creepers and Slayer memorabilia are contrasted with soft pastels in the snow, indicative of stylist (and Russh Editor) Stevie Dance’s consistent genius. That sense of eclecticism permeates the whole thing as Louis Vuitton is mixed with Grandma Takes A Trip, Sonia Rykiel with Screaming Mimi’s and Alaia over the top of Stam’s own shirt.

We have a selection of behind the scenes imagery as well as a short teaser video below.

But let’s not forget the other content. Dubbed ‘Fan For Life’, the music issue sees an unlikely meeting between Gucci’s creative director Frida Gianinni and Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry. Plus there’s an interview with Melbourne band Our Mountain set in New York’s Mercury Lounge as well as features on pop star scenester Sky Ferreira, poet and musician Gil Scott-Heron and the art of DIY music by resident writer Michael Gilles.

For now though, sit back and take in the charm of the magnetic model Marc Jacobs named a bag for.
