The Ringing Of Your Laughter

      Jamilla @ Micha Models (The Netherlands) This game can't last forever. Why? Because everything needs to end or transform. Morph. And who knows in which form FDIB will morph tomorrow. Happy mood on one hand, bittersweet on the other. And who knows (God knows?) what will be the ending. Hope for some fireworks but somehow we are still far enough from the end not to think or talk about it. And here comes Jamilla from Micha Models, in the Netherlands. Here comes another Dutch blondie that doesn't look like other dutch... [Lire la suite]

Growing Wisterias

      Fleurance @ Vandemast Model Management (The Netherlands) Maybe we're wrong tonight but maybe we're so right. The future will tell us and as we often think: the moment tells the story. Or writes it if we don't have a pen in hand to write it ourselves. Spring vibe, summer weather and good energy that nobody could stop. Funny feeling, no rush no frenzy but the impression everything is moving and rather in the right direction. Path is not easy and nothing is, in fashion at least and in life in general. Enough with...

Head Over Heels

    Maryna Linchuk @ DNA (NY), Viva (Paris) It was a little more than a year ago, our last feature on Maryna Linchuk. A couple of pictures and a flow of words, a deep analysis of what her walk at Prada meant to us and a few more on how much we were impressed by a very simple yet extremely efficient modeling performance. Cover-girl of Vogue Russia this month, Maryna does it again or even better, bringing up to life a story that would look pretty kinetic without the little touch of presence she adds to it. Basic fashion with... [Lire la suite]

Never Hide

    Veerle @ Bloom (The Netherlands) We could talk about faces but somehow strategies offer more opportunity to write and discuss. And everytime we drop a line on Bloom Management, the young Dutch boutique, a few words on the strategy behind the agency is the very best part. You've got to read it when we first featured Daphne and had another slice of the story when came the two posts we did on Rosanne. And key-word remainds the same: precision. Miles away from randomness in management you could find in bigger firms (and... [Lire la suite]

Midnight Lady

        Ronja @ New York Models (NY) Midnight drama but no broken dreams so all should be fine. Next time we'll try dancing under the pale moonlight, might get better results but that's a secret for now. And totally off-topic whihc is not our goal at eleven in the morning (leaving this to next night). Topic today is Ronja by Nando Esparza. We already wrote much on Nando's work and our feelings about it so it will be Ronja in the spotlights now. And must say she totally deserves it. Met the 19-years-old young lady... [Lire la suite]

Diamonds Are Silver In Love

        Ruxanda @ Mandarina (Romania), Nathalie (Paris) No drumrolls and trumpets, no violins but a couple of lyrics and a few fresh pictures. Polaroids or digital for instance and the next one from Mandarina Models on our list. After two years following the young Romanian agency and its rise among the international modeling landscape, it's a pleasure to showcase another piece of its story. Relentless scouting going hand in hand with aggressive and smart policy when it comes to placements and management are a... [Lire la suite]

Naturally

    Daria Werbowy @ IMG In a world of stone, love will never be the same (again). In a softer world, it wouldn't be otherwise. Regardless of the fact everything surrounding us is stone or roses, cold or warm, rain or sun, love switches from one form to another relentlessly following the mood of the heart and eye. And the important is to stay natural, geniune and never get lost in transformations. No processed love, raw yet sweet does it better as always. Maybe that was the message from this spread from Canadian magazine... [Lire la suite]

Niconic

      Nico @ Iconic (Germany) Going by a name with a immediate flavor of music icon from last century, Nico is certainly the model that literally embodies her agency's vision right now and regardless the aura of fame and freedom around her nickname, she could be ready soon to go her own way and write her own story by herself. Recently added to Oui Management's roster in Paris, it's not the city of lights that will get all our attention tonight but where she comes from and what's been done from there since we saw her...

I Don't Give A Shit (But Still Have Dreams)

          Shelbie @ Elite (NY) Tattoos and balloons and dreams, could stop here. Not going to the tattoo-shop next door though, brown marker does it better here and allows us to change moods whe need though ours keeps being the same for weeks or months. But for Shelbie it's certainly more interesting to keep the one she has on her wrist in order to hold on tight to her dreams about New York City, where she is now with Elite and recently arrived from Michigan. Bright blue gaze and casual clothing made us, and... [Lire la suite]

They All Need A Star

Kristina Salinovic @ Women (NY), Daphne Groeneveld @ Supreme (NY) and Lindsey Wixson @ Marilyn (NY) Months and years come (and go somehow). And we grew up too old to make ourselves fools for mistaken love (or devotion). Inspiration is like months and years and comes and goes and comes back in the end for whoever is patient enough to wait and work. To people who considers this story and especially cover as a letdown from Steven Meisel and Vogue Italia we can only answer the perfromance is far from bad and that it's impossible to...
