Fashion does it Better

Ringside Seat

Valerija Kelava @ Next and Iselin Steiro @ Women Some models are literally propelled in the spotlights as soon as they arrive on stage. Either they are push by some unknown physical forces or they do really attract the light to never let it go. Some other models make their way in the shadows, either totally unaware of the lights next door or they couldn't care less and cherish their comfy darkness. Till the day has come to get out of dark, all of a sudden or step by step, depending on the model herself and what's surrounding... [Lire la suite]

Are You Mad Enough

Patricia Van der Vliet @ New York Models (NY) There are days we miss our eighties, our childhood or what we think it looked like back then. When it wasn't that odd to be dressed like a bubble gum and when discount stores all had creepy names. The need to escape, you know. The emergency that would normally push you to run but sticks your feet on the ground. Can't move, not even wink. Working in a dark room because the sun shines too bright and summer is already getting on our nerves. Don't know if we want september to knock at our... [Lire la suite]

Daylight's Darling

        Sveta @ Cherie Models (Russia) Do we have to say she's our biggest crush of these last few weeks (or even months) or can you guess it from her pictures ? We guess you've guessed but couldn't help ourselves and had to write it. There is something too intense in Sveta's gaze not to get caught by it. For anyone who has never experienced his eyes stuck on his screen, the feeling might be hard to describe but the others will easily know what it's like to stop all you were doing or even let your cup of coffee...

Swing Steps

        Ieva Marija @ Premier (London) Freshly made polaroids (last Thursday to be correct) and currently on stay in London. Two tiny bits of sentence to describe the situation and explain why another feature on the lovely Ieva Marija. As if it would need any explanation but it's always nice to remember the context to understand the evolution of a model's career, may it be the first steps (or second steps for that matter). Launched on the international modeling scene by Joy Star System, from Latvia -- but you... [Lire la suite]

Visuals

    Viivi Kapanen @ Brand (Finland) Deep analysis or short into ? Long and detailed portrait or quick overview ? For the first question the answer would be short intro then to the second we'd neither details nor overview. Just two polas to get the point and it took us time to get that idea. Her book is strong and sophisticated and we could have picked, very easily, a palette of pictures to give an idea of what Viivi's talents are like. But we went for another option, something more "visual" if this happens... [Lire la suite]

Woke Up Feeling Bloody Good

        Emily Wake @ Elite (Paris), Elite (NY) The title is a kind of pun, easy and the most refined trick we've ever used but behind the playful wording was an authentic feeling. No, we didn't wake up this morning feeling that good, rather tired if you ask and would love to know why. But the good thing about today is the good feeling towards Emily Wake. Hence the quirky title. Let's be honest, she wasn't our favorite from the package (Fall Winter 2010-2011 for that matter) and didn't really know how to consider... [Lire la suite]

Portraits & Promises

    Elisa @ SPS (The Netherlands) Talking about "model countries" five minutes ago writing on a german girl, here are two from the Netherlands, a country that has been labeled "the new model eldorado" by many over the last few seasons. But keeping our point of the previous article, it's more a matter of strategy, philosophy or policy or call it how you want but it's up to the agencies first. Scouting skills and devoted development have more weight than geography even if it always sounds fancy to say one place is the next... [Lire la suite]

Steady Motion

    Kat @ Iconic (Germany) Berlin Fashion Week is coming soon and most show packages have been released these days, many of them being actually huge lineups of models from famous names to first timers. From established agencies like Modelwerk or Mega to the newcomer of the season Cat Model Management, every agency (factory or boutique) has its own formula and aesthetic. As it's been a little while we haven't said a word Iconic Management, now based in Hamburg, we thought the upcoming even in Berlin could be an opportunity... [Lire la suite]

Nina

Nina @ Profile (London) Nina caught our attention a few months ago when we saw some test pictures shot by the great Grant Thomas (London-based photographer that worked with a couple more favorites of ours). Did a small bookmark to keep track of her career correctly and kept her in mind for the day news will arrive. And news arrived yesterday when Profile Models announced she'll be among the new faces of the agency who will be working full time this Summer now that school is over (or about to be). Nina is 5'9 high and has this deep,... [Lire la suite]

Tick the Right Box

  Herieth @ Angie's Models (Canada) We did a first feature on Herieth back in April, with some early materials from her mother agency Angie's Models in Ottawa, Ontario. Was a regular short introduction with the usual facts (14 and 5'11 tall) and our first impressions on her. First impressions were right and we got the confirmation last week when we learnt straight from her mother agent that Herieth is currently in New York. We said development might take time but some girls have what it takes to run slightly faster. Keep the... [Lire la suite]
