Model Talking: Our Picks for the Season and Beyond (Part III)

Liene Podina may not be the newest face of the season, she's surely one of our standouts, first circle, and besides looking awesome both on digitals and runway pics, her editorial performances would easily rank her among all-time FDIB favorite models like Valerija Kelava, Aymeline Valade or Shannan Click. Representend by Fusion who has our favorite show package so far (which Liene designed herself), she also caught our attention several times in magazines like 10, V or Interview and... she's from Latvia – no bias but this just...

Overnight Sensations sailing against The Wind, Inc.

While currently finalizing the third (and last?) part of our Model Talking series, we took a little break (that is no real break) to drop a note on Anique Jozsi, Alexander Wang's opener at his latest show. She remained the mystery-girl during all New York fashion week or almost with that mysterious scent floating in the international air from her gorgeous face and name to her unusual beauty type (her mother agency A Models Amsterdam's specialty – remember Dilia last season). And we must say we would not be against facing an unknown... [Lire la suite]

Model Talking: Our Picks for the Season and Beyond (Part II)

The show has begun and the frenzy's on (though we say this from the sofa, comfortably sitting and watching the game), Katie Moore went blond for Wang while the opening slot of the same collection went to a gorgeous Anique nobody seems to know (lovely surprise). Meanwhile Ellen Rosa steals the spotlights everywhere she walks. We're still doing our list(s), still picking our favorites, being picky, gathering our own gang of obvious favorites and personal sweeties with potential. And today we start our second round with newbie from... [Lire la suite]

Model Talking: Our Picks, For the Season and Beyond (Part I)

Here comes september (everywhere comes september) and it was about time to take a pen again and put together a piece of pictures and paragraphs on the models we look at, we love to look at and would love not to stop looking at for the weeks to come and far beyond. Way too many names and as many beauty types has led us to divide this story in a few parts. Here comes september and with it golden leaves and showtime, here is the first chapter of our ''picks for the season'' starting with Amilna Estevao, already a favorite of FDIB for a...

Redheads & Bedheads

More than a full decade ago, for artistic purposes, we started growing a passion for red-haired models as portraits of redheads were our main topic while painting. Hence our relentless quest for young ladies with copper locks and special features – some combination that was way easier to find on a model agency's webpage than in any magazine, book or at the grocery next door. From strawberry-blondes to the darkest auburn beauties, from naturally ginger-haired and freckly-faced lovelies to much-hyped gals who just had their look... [Lire la suite]

When the Skies are Grey

As kids, when the borders were still fences and it wasn't such an easy deal to cross the big river just to get some cheaper ciggies, we used to think the sky looked different in german cities than in our french hometown. A greater grey, we should say, grey like expensive pearls, soft and smooth with a slight touch of wholesome melancholy echoing the pavents of their broaders streets and more recent buildings, a grey that used to turn pigeons into divas taken away from their red carpet and green leaves into colorful witnesses...

Jazz Up the 1st of May

Jay Wright's name remained on our to-do-list for some time already (say weeks or months or so) and went overnight from the ''no rush'' category to our priority section. Any specific reason? If being stunning on every image is good enough of a reason, then this is it as we went through her portfolio page after page and could tell each one deserves its place in the book. We hate to use words like these but you could describe her, somehow (very somehow) as an ethereal beauty with a raunchy rock'n'roll touch and this translates... [Lire la suite]

Switch On the Time Machine

We have to thank Jack Nicholson for the reminder, after watching The Pledge (Sean Penn, 2001) yesterday late at night, the urge to go back to The Shining suddenly rose in our minds and that's how our eyes got caught by Shelley Duvall's uncanny and arousing features. We literally became like mosquitos (re-)discovering a lamp on a summer evening. Had to search for photographs our memories had somehow sent to their darkest forsaken corners and bring them back to life. Had to hunt and hunt all the great ones down. Like this cover of...

Hieronymus Cadillac

Looking through the eyes, the eyes of LOVE (Magazine, of course): a portrait of Anna Cleveland as the mistress of an oneiric (even more than dreamlike, actually) place out of space, out of time and eras. Perhaps the most accomplished and unforgettable piece of fashion art of the last few months if not more. The entire story, photographed by a Tim Walker always true to his aesthetics yet never short of imagination to renew his own style, follows the same path and appears to be a loud statement, a catchy reminder of what beauty,...

Slow Motion Towards The Exit

Elisa @ ICE² (Milan) We might be the last two romantic minds in this business or the only ones we know right now using their keyboard to discuss such issues. Tired of reading about "potential" all the time. Potential, what does it mean exactly? Why so much overconfidence and a total lack of confidence mixed in the same word, the same judgement, why does this word sound like the promise nothing will ever happen? New faces with potential have been appearing in front of us, sometimes even walking next to us and then went away without... [Lire la suite]
