Meet Anastasija !

Anastasija @ Vacatio (Latvia) A hidden jewel from Latvia... Anastasija (also known as Anastasia but with or without the J her potential remains endless) is what we would call an eye-catcher from head to toe. Read: a delicate face and a sensational silhouette (5'11 and legs for days). We're not the only ones to think this way. From her pages in latvian L'Officiel to her first steps with New York Models where she was headed to the very best photographers to build her book (also check her tests by Shameer Khan on his blog),...

Yuki makes the superstar

  Viktoriya Sasonkina @ Women (NY) Not really, actually. More seriously, Steven Meisel is closer to the status of superstar-maker, if the concept of superstar or even star is still close to be relevent. Well, we can't totally deny the fact that gracing the cover of Vogue Italia is a major improvement in a girl's career. At least, an awesome upheaval most of times. Some ways are short, some girls seem to take the direct line to it. Some others are playing second roles in the shadows, waiting for some... [Lire la suite]

Dreams of tomorrow

Irina Gorban @ One (NY) Another "lil One" in Lula, Irina Gorban is gracing a story by Jesse Shadoan called Dreams of tomorrow. Couldn't have had a better name these days as Irina's career in NY is about to start... almost tomorrow. Editorials are always a shot a few months earlier and nothing was done on purpose. The theme, the mood belongs to the photographer, stylist etc. then it's up to every eye to translate in its own way. We can't help. Such a marvelous timing gives an extra kick of energy right before the shows.... [Lire la suite]

Press review !

Back from Germany with Material Girl in a plastic bag. That one with Nyok on the cover. Nyok was actually the main reason behind the rush to our favorite german bookshop and we're not disappointed by the trip. Well, Material Girl is the only mag we picked this time. It was worth to cross the border, though. True to their usual receipt, full of new faces, you will also find models like Sian Leake (cuter than ever), Alicia Hunter (a very, very cute one too - from IMG London) and Iina, one of the most promising finnish girl of the...

Hush and rush

Eugenia Skvatsova @ One (NY) She's as brand new as she could ever be and everybody already loves her. Just check the digitals on COACD or remember the first polas from One. Well everybody loves her, especially the camera. And Bradford Gregory's new tests of her are proving she's not only a polaroid wonder but also a photographer's dream. Well, when the camera loves her, how else should it be ?

The touch of pink that makes us think...

Emma Beam @ Elite (NY) Sometimes showcards helps you to discover or re-discover some models. We were already aware of Emma Beam's potential a few times before but the kick came with her showcard. It's called "growing on us". Then came one pola and then we wanted to see more. We were sure the more we see, the more we'll love her yet the touch of pink is simply heartbreaking. The touch of styling that points out the right silhouette - 5'11 - to go hand in hand with a striking, half cute half fierce, face. Plus her name.... [Lire la suite]

Sweedeedee

Vanessa Michels @ One (NY) One of our favorite at One - how would it be possible for her not be among our top new faces there, such a gorgeous and unique redhead ? - is grace the pages of current Lula, in a editorial by Nina Andersson. Called Sweedeedee. Looks like they exactly knew how to capture Vanessa's look. The items and the atmosphere. Now she has a stronger (and stronger) book and a marvelous showcard... We always want more, of course.

An exclusive approach, a new era

Marta Nowacka @ New Age Models (Poland) This was supposed to be a very complete article with various pictures of Marta, from digitals to black and white tests. But as soon as the alpha-version was ready we thought such an exclusive face needed something more exclusive for her first feature here. We finally decided to pick the two most striking pictures we got from New Age, not the most precise, rather the most sophisticated, the best ones if your goal is to give a proper image of her potential. That's how we went for this... [Lire la suite]

Luana goes darker...

Luana Teifke @ Marilyn (NY) ... and we're getting more and more excited about her future. It's not that exclusive as you might have seen this polaroids sheet on COACD earlier today (or even yesterday, we discovered it this morning) but when we saw it again in our inbox we thought there was no other way than writing a few lines. Nine views in bright colors. The way she looks, the way she poses. And after being a subtle blonde with dark brows, she's now a delicate brunette. She's the same Luana, just a little different. When the... [Lire la suite]

Meet Natasha !

Natasha Gumieniuk @ Elite (NY) Find a title is sometimes easy, sometimes much harder. For various reasons. Too much ideas and not the good one. That's how we went to "Meet Natasha !" as we thought, after all, it's still time to "meet" her. She's just beginning in NY and learning incredibly fast. Light speed catwalk studies and 5'11 are the most helpful things for a new girl in town and her very expressive face might be her best friend. And best weapon. Of course, this four digitals (we love digis from Elite... [Lire la suite]
