High Standards

        Christina Romanova @ AL Models Not even two weeks after introducing Irina, here comes Christina Romanova, newest discovery (from Russia again) by AL Models. She just turned 16 this month, looks as fresh and youthful as possible yet quite talented for someone just beginning. From her ethereal look on her digitials to the more elaborated performance of her first test (more playful or even more ethereal, actually), there is already more to see with Christina than just an unforgettable look. If today's... [Lire la suite]

New(ish)

        Alex @ Next (Canada) Last week we had the opportunity to discover a new(ish) photographer, according to his own words. Matthew Burditt, working in Vancouver in Canada and who has recently worked with some of the most interesting models around, including Amy (from Liz Bell, who was featured on FDIB not so long ago) for his story called Catch the Light. The pieces that caught our attention were often those which relied on simple or even minimalist styling, studio work or natural atmospheres. Those where... [Lire la suite]

Fake Friday

  Karlijn Alderliesten @ SPS (The Netherlands) Friday afternoon, time for new faces. There is no specific reason in that move except the mood, we're in such a mood for newbies at this exact minute. Had our Friday booze on Thursday eve so let's act as if we were Monday morning. If it has to be crazy, let's make it crazier. On a totally different note, far from our pre-weekend private jokes, Karlijn is making her first steps right now, carefully groomed by her mother agent from SPS Model Management in Amsterdam. If we had her... [Lire la suite]

11 x 14

Talking about supporting our favorite photographers, here is another golden opportunity just a few days after featuring his work with Constance Jablonski for Grey Magazine. Here comes Chadwick Tyler again with one of his latest project, an exclusive yet affordable online sale of some photographs, first one on the list being Suvi Koponen (like you've rarely seen her, plus one photograph of Tyler Riggs). Then, Chadwick is going to pick a different set of prints each month for these limited edition sales. Check out all the details on... [Lire la suite]

Rock Your Soul

Yesterday we said weekly and today it seems even daily, talking about the rythm of our posts dedicated to Jonathan Leder. But this has never stopped us, it never gets repetitive when the visuals are good and when the inspiration comes along. We never thought we would sound biased either, just being supportive of photographers we love as we love them for what they do and what their work does for us. Words just go by, almost straight from our minds to the screen via our fingers literally dancing on the keyboard. Let the music... [Lire la suite]

Eyes Like Hers

      Chloe @ FM (London) Chloe arrived in London this morning, dropped by the agency and rushed to her first meeting, as simple as it sounds. Simple might not be the best word to describe Chloe's beauty, though. Sophisticated or ethereal would be much better definitions of her very peculiar look. Simple wouldn't fit for her personality either, inspired should do it better. Or passionate, for anyone knowing her involvement in modeling. Managed by Swedish boutique Nisch Management in Stockholm and recently signed with... [Lire la suite]

Hazel Eyes

      Amanda Chamberlain @ Elite (NY) We could do one per week, one Elite/Pulse-girl by Jonathan Leder. Last week we had the lovely Brittany McPhee, this one it's Amanda's turn. Totally different look, totally different vibe even when pictured by the same photographer using the same polaroid technique, the same aesthetic. That might be the magic of Jonathan's work as well, being able to draw a different portrait each time and the fact he uses the same camera and same style makes it even more obvious. Might also be the... [Lire la suite]

The Performer

          Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) There are days you write about your expectations and days you describe how they've come true. Many posts dedicated to Valerie were expectations, fuelled by some die-hard faith in a young model slowly yet steadily building a book. This time visuals went far beyond beliefs, expectations turned out to be relevant, we weren't dreaming of Valerie becoming a great model but were watching it. Live. If in many of her previous works, apart from the most recent... [Lire la suite]

Pixies and Pumpkins

            Amanda Norgaard @ Viva (Paris), Supreme (NY) It's rocking and whirling in the land of pixies and pumpkins when Amanda Norgaard gets involved in the storyboard. In a short series dedicated to movies, especially those inspired by fairytales, the delicate Dane plays one role after the other and embodies each character with the same power, bringing them all back to life. We had no trouble to imagine her as the Little Mermaid (and it's actually the only story which inspired two pages in a row),... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Marike by Beau Grealy

Marike Le Roux @ Wilhelmina (NY) Long time we haven't officially bookmarked any blog piece on FDIB but truth is we rely a lot more on our second page, J'avoue J'aime for this kind of entries (faster and right to the point). But this occasion seemed made for FDIB as both Marike Le Roux and Beau Grealy were already featured here and when one of our favorite model works with one of our favorite photographer, it's tough not to mention it here. The story comes from Italian Flair, May 2010 issue and was spotted on Wilhelmina's blog... [Lire la suite]
