Prada-Girl

        Maryna Linchuk @ Viva (Paris) Before making the decision to write this piece we thought of what could be your possible reactions. Are we getting that bored on a Sunday afternoon to go to the bookshop next door and start a story on the first magazine we found ? Actually not at all, wouldn't have time to waste in this and couldn't be that cynical in a topic involving models. Though, we can agree it's been a while since we last featured Maryna... if we ever did. So, why now and what's the point behind this ? ... [Lire la suite]

Our Paris Way of Life: Daydreaming vs. Realpolitik

Olga Cerpita @ Studio (Paris), not in the review but expecting to see her again in town after a nice season in London with Profile. And Studio girls definitely belongs to our favorite Paris perks... As usual Paris packages offer a wide range of high level models, including many newcomers you are tempted to watch closely during one week running from one show to another. Hide and seek backstage, good surprises and big disappointments. Though, our approach of that new season in Paris seems a little bit different and our state of... [Lire la suite]

Une Mandarina à Paris

      Oana Timerman @ WM (Paris) Not the first time we feature Oana here but so far it was from a romanian point of view. French now, as she recently arrived in Paris, managed by WM and building her book to be fine ready for the shows -- very soon, isn't it ? Our initial plans were to feature another girl who just arrived in town but Oana is Oana (and is 5'9"5 FYI) and as one of our favorites from Mandarina Models it was quite not possible to wait. Our title is a little mistaking, though. There is actually more... [Lire la suite]

Mum was Right!

Samantha Gradoville @ IMG (Milan) Remembered some teenage moments this morning when the idea of writing this piece first popped up. Parents telling you that they are right, sometimes at least. Example ten years ago (approximatively) was after watching a movie on TV with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg -- the girl (Reese) dating a bad boy (Mark) who turned out to be a psycho and the girl's parents were right not to feel him at all then Mum telling you that you should listen to her more often. Great, doesn't make much sense,... [Lire la suite]

Regardless

    Kylie Bisutti by Jonathan Leder Before the Gig Life is not easy but... can be funny. Got some news from Jonathan Leder last night, new pictures with Victoria's Secret contest winner Kylie Bisutti. Went to the coffee machine and back to the computer, got another mail. Insider tips on Prada's casting. News from the previous evening weren't relevant as Prada's plans changed and the new news (if we can say so) were about VS girls walking the show in Milan tonight. Thought of Jonathan's mail, thought of Kylie's... [Lire la suite]

Hey Child, Stay Wild

          Alicia Kuczman @ One (NY) Long time no talk... and James Mahon popped up again on our radar two days ago! Just in time, we'd say as he wanted to share a beautiful story he did with Alicia Kuczman, officially one of our new favorites. Taking the softest side of Alicia, which isn't the most obvious idea on earth, and mixing it with some Sex Pistols tee-shirts was quite a brilliant find to highlight what (in our opinion, at least) makes her look so specific. The best of it could be its contrasts. Her... [Lire la suite]

FDIB presents: The Editorial Evening

Ophelie Rupp @ M Management (Paris) Went to the bookstore by chance because the train station is close to the office and they sell good sandwiches. Nice idea but we came back with some even nicer. With all the good stories from good magazines we found lately, with the fashion frenzy on worldwide runways leaving less place for features on new faces, we thought a good big editorial topic would be good. Opening the ball is Ophelie's picture taken from Another Magazine, dressed as a soccer-loving ballerina, shot by Charles Fréger and... [Lire la suite]

That Bregje Girl

        Bregje Heinen @ Micha (The Netherlands), Women (Paris, Milan), Women Direct (NY) Memories from last seasons: one image in mind -- Bregje leaving the tent in the Jardin des Tuileries -- and one sentence -- "it's incredible, this girl works everyday", pronounced by a booker from another agency than hers. Good memories, then, good season for her as well. And Bregje seems to be unable to hang out after such a good international starts. Both runways and glossy pages can't get enough of her and this months she's... [Lire la suite]

Rasa's Razzia

        Rasa Zukauskaite @ Next Rasa on the radar. Our radar too. Days and nights. She was the heart of one of our late-at-night convo yesterday. That Prada video is the most delightful thing we've watched in ages and her other one from Love wasn't bad at all. What's the secret behind Rasa's rise. Only time will tell how high she'll go and how far she'll fly but for now she's going as fast as the speed of light. The right girl at the right place. Right time too, even if sometimes it seems she got rid of time. Not... [Lire la suite]

My Secret Lover

Rasa Zukauskaite & Karmen Pedaru @ Next She's undercover. Well, in this story Rasa's hiding a bit in Karmen's shadows but in real life (runway life to be honest), she's far from hiding at all. Only girl having two spreads here today, Numéro and Another Magazine and working out both so brilliantly, you wouldn't even guess the girl is just making her first steps in high fashion. Prada video, Love video, several coveted catwalks... the list gets longer and the love gets strong. Everyday. She may appear as quite shy or even... [Lire la suite]
