Beauty (Blush)

            Abbey Lee Kershaw @ Next Abbey Lee might be the most remarkable plsatinum-blonde of these days, the latest piece of editorial work we have of her still showcases her natural hair color (in black and white but still). Shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo, published in The Gentlewoman (the most amazing thing we've had in hands these last few months, see more here), Blush is more exactly a beauty story and you may start thinking we've became obsessed by beauty stories. Obsessed... [Lire la suite]

Casual or Not

    Olga Cazacenco @ Ice Squared (Milan) Haven't talked a lot about London this season (did we talk about New York much as well? maybe before it started, right) and off to Milan we go now. First day today, first thrill later this afternoon (think Gucci and tune your mood) and first Milano-girl on FDIB this morning. From Ice Squared, home of Melinda and Alisa, who just released their show package on their blog asking if you are squared enough. We might be but not sure it's our answer that matters most these days. And our... [Lire la suite]

Love and Luck

        Bregje Heinen @ Micha Models (The Netherlands), Select (London), Supreme (NY), Women (Milan) There are these days you wonder if emotions are your friends or foes and can't find a proper answer, some days you wish it was all mild and calm, that you were flowing on your feelings instead of being carried by the flood. If there one fashion story (beauty story for that matter) which really materialise this impression, that would be Bregje's latest spread in Glass Magazine, third issue. Opened by a close-up shot...

Back to Life!

Alina Untila @ Mandarina (Romania) First job, first cover and a great statement on it: Back to Life! A good idea for a September issue and a very uncommon way to picture it, going for a minimalist, dry and light-colored aesthetic instead of overloading the visual with all these jolly clichés usually related to the theme. We've always known Ozon for its creativity and the magazine never fails to offer an alternative vision and, in this precise case, a different point of view on fashion and beyond fashion boundaries. No big... [Lire la suite]

Time Goes By (Tic-Tacs and Tactics)

        Justina Muralyte @ Supermodels (Lithuania) Writing an update after an introduction is quite an obvious pleasure for whoever is interested in the process of development. Both seeing the book growing thicker and the skills getting finer are things we certainly count among the most important when we've started following a model's career from the very beginning. Keeping our eyes on the screen, watching, waiting and seeing, and always looking for the next step to be reached. And crossed, as we are talking... [Lire la suite]

Fever vs. Frenzy

Fashion week is going its way and the first interesting facts are there now. Still a bit too early to think of a review (or a no-review) but we do really think a few models we spotted these days are worth some kind of report. Not really focusing on shows only and it's often good to keep one of your eyes away from the runway when everything is happening. Leaving all options open because in two weeks then in three weeks everything can be different. You never know at this stage and all we feel allowed to tell for the moment is who we... [Lire la suite]

Romantic Warrior

          Lindsey Wixson @ Marilyn (NY) Fashion week frenzy goes on and it seems we keep heading to another direction... to get back to it later. First interesting things, first expectations (not ours) coming true or not, first days and a few more ahead of everyone before the craziness flies to London and so on. We are rather turning to our latest magazine buys than commenting on first shows results and actually we found much more to say on AnOther Magazine than on what's happening on the runways so far....

Do Not Need Science, Just Beauty Etc.

The 'game' has officially started but the 'games' are not done yet. Even if everyone here and there wants everyone else there and here to believe the affair is packed for the season. Predictions, bets, wild guesses and whatever else it could be: every mouth right now can say five or ten names, even with the best luck the final results have high chances to be dramatically different. That might be a very interesting season (still ahead of us for now) and we're living the most boring and frustrating part of it somehow... in a few days... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Elite NY's Models of the Day

Here we go again. Elite NY did it last season and does it again, daily blog features on their new models in town and these 'Models of the Day' caught our attention this time too. Simple polaroid-sheets that say more than long texts or sophisticated editorial outtakes, simple as a light-speed introduction which is probably the only way an agent can talk about his models during fashion week frenzy. Just a post and a few works like... well, the model's name, her favorite designer and music brand. Short statements and loads of visual... [Lire la suite]

Straight Line (To The Point)

It's been a little while since last time we talked about Ksenia. Was a quick intro, actually, and we're really, geniunely happy to be able to drop a few lines again. We've had the opportunity to see a lot of materials of the newcomers who recently arrived in town at New York Models for Spring Summer 2011 and almost each of them would be worth having a complete entry dedicated to her but you know how it goes. Fast and we have to keep everything as selective as possible, as relevant as we can. Making choices and decisions even when... [Lire la suite]
