So far in 2012 Stylenoir has hit half a million readers; broken a corner of the WWW with our antics with Zombie Boy; been hung on the wall in the London Mayor’s office; been repped by the New York Times and Microsoft… the list goes on. So we thought it was about time to start with a new journey, the Stylenoir Top 10 Creatives 2012. Each year we will look at who our readers most admired, looked at and read about, giving an official, definitive guide of the top 10 creatives chosen by Stylenoir readers.
So without further ado, here is the top ten, beginning with the winner.
1. Emma Hawkins
The macabre art dealer Emma Hawkins completely floors the opposition in this, with twice as many readers as second place.
If there is one creature Stylenoir readers love it … Read More »
Illamasqua‘s incredible creative director and iconic, world dominating makeup artist Alex Box recently collaborated with Lady Gaga and Harper’s Bazaar magazine to create an innovative and striking new shoot, which showcases the talents of all involved.
Now whilst our real unprecedented adoration for Alex Box comes from her unrivaled creativity. As shown in her Stylist Magazine Artwork featuring Georgie Hobday. The minimalism and clean-ness shown here just shows that Alex delivers the perfect result, always. Her diversity and judgment, as perfect as freshly cut diamond.

We have already featured Georgie Hobday a number of times, including by far the greatest artwork released this year Alex Box for Stylist Magazine and of course the outstanding tongue in cheek Agent Provocateur Soiree video.
But we wanted to dedicate a full and respected article to Georgie Hobday, as it is quite obvious to us that her outstanding mind for creativity and exceptional talent is one that we all need to pay attention to, without fail.
From the aforementioned work with Alex Box to her very recent work for Super Super magazine, there is no doubt that Georgie has an outstanding flair, a creative expression that captures and provokes emotion.
Beyond this, it is her exceptional diversity that adds to her unprecedented talent. This dynamic brilliance ranges from an empowered smoldering creature, to that of a feisty, playful … Read More »
As you will all know by now, Stylenoir is a colossal supporter of Illamasqua. But we think it’s about time someone reflected on what the brand does in its entirety, for creativity, and for the world.
The brand has come so far since formation. But it is not the company’s size, scale or value we are interested in for this article. It’s what the brand does for the creatives, the individuals, that means so much to us.
Illamasqua‘s constant, relentless striving to not only pioneer, but support and provide for those who not only wish to express themselves, but perhaps need a guiding hand through societies prejudice toward their individuality or creativity, is outstanding.
Quite frankly what Illamasqua do is nothing short of Iconic. Like one of those constant moments in history, a force for good. I remember the founder … Read More »
Alex Box just ascended through the earth’s atmosphere like a shining phoenix, azure feathered wings outstretched, higher than the pious, than Gods and Goddesses that look down upon this tiny insignificant planet, for what she just produced for Stylist Magazine is stratospheric, nothing comes close. This is the epitome of organic art.
Alex Box created five makeup looks which span Baroque, Romanticism, Dadaism, Cubism and Postmodernism. Whilst at this point we would normally launch into creative prose, into our feelings and emotions that these produce, for once, we are speechless. What ever we say will just taint, disease the divinity of these incredible, celestial creations.
For now, delve into your own emotions, float away with the beauty and significance of true art. For what Alex Box has created is unparalleled.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, roll up roll up… for this is the moment you have all been waiting for, the teaser of Illamasqua‘s brand new Autumn Winter 11 collection; Theatre of the Nameless
The collection takes a look back through history to the age of the 1920s, with flapper and burlesque influences in abundance. Conjuring a vision of a delicate porcelain doll trapped by her captors, performance upon performance, twirl upon twirl, for that is all she knows. Through her pain and strive, through her dedication no matter how circular it may be, shines true beauty, an innocence so pure that no matter how darkness engulfs this creature, her performance, her ideal will never be tainted.
Alex Box once again creates an outstanding concept and vision, especially through the teaser campaign imagery. Her talent quite possibly unparalleled. … Read More »
