Fashion does it Better

Talented Teenager

      Brittany McPhee @ Elite (NY) She's one of the few models who start young and really leave a mark. Starting young in modeling has been quite pleonastic for years but it doesn't seem to be so relevant anymore and examples of girls starting rather "late" and doing well are easier to find nowadays. Not saying girls who start early are that rare but the approach went from "the faster the better" to a steady pace, with much emphasis put on development -- step by step. Though, among those young ladies, you'll always... [Lire la suite]

Lizzy on the List

        Lizzy Burden @ Supreme (NY) Okay, it's not Monday but it seems so. Yesterday was a holiday in France and seemed like a Sunday. Or not exactly. Quite difficult these days to name the day, if you've ever experienced the feeling (well, french people should be used to it as wolrdwide champions of holidays). So, yesterday would have been a real Sunday if the rest of the world wasn't working and agencies weren't updating us on what's going where people don't spend free time in the sun. That was for the little... [Lire la suite]

Demonic

Veranika @ AL Models, Ford (NY) Had to share that, needed to post it for personal and more general reasons. For everything to make sense next week and to leave with strong materials for this long weekend. We would have several possibilites, several potentially thrilling features to end the day but Maxim Repin's video featuring Veranika Antsipava in a way you've never seen her before. If the model/photographer combo seems an obvious match, the choice of Veranika for that type of atmosphere sounds like a less easy idea and you'll learn... [Lire la suite]

And Now

Tessa Gelderblom @ SPS (The Netherlands) It's almost one day, one Tessa or let's just say here comes the other Tessa from SPS Model Management, Tessa Gelderblom. Just as fresh as her homonymous agency-mate, Miss Gelderblom took a different road with her different look and if you may not remember which one has what last name, you can mistake their faces. Actually the two could have been featured in the same post as these stories by Gilbert François were initially meant to be a huge one, a panoramic overview of the newbies at SPS.... [Lire la suite]

Hide & Seek

        Sharon Van De Pas @ IMG (NY) It takes a Friday afternoon, allergies and a good shower, countless cups of coffee to get back to these topics we've been working on for weeks waiting for better words and a better moment than in between two other features to publish them. Among these topics was Coco Young's second part, there was also Sharon Van De Pas by James Mahon. Pictures were waiting for a few weeks already, if not more and we wouldn't exaggerate saying we thought of them every single day since they hit... [Lire la suite]

The 2 2 Watch

      Madeleine Lundmark @ FM (London) High season, low season and in between, the latter being the most interesting to us when all the agencies of all four cities are getting their new "weapons" ready for the victory. Everyone has his own recipe, every idea is good to hear and every strategy has its advantages. It's no secret we particularly appreciate the work done at FM Models in London, it's not surprise then to see two girls from them being featured here again. And we've got a few good reasons to be excited about... [Lire la suite]

On and On, All in All

Lais Ribeiro @ Joy Star System, Joy Model Management (Sao Paulo), Women Management (NY) Finally. We have our opportunity to drop a few lines on Lais Ribeiro. We were watching her, day in day out since she appeared at her mother agency, Joy Star System. Obvious beauty, too striking not to get noticed in a glimpse yet seemed to came out of nowhere. So quick, so unexpected and so expectable at the same time as great debuts can be. We just had enough time to think of featuring her and she was already signed with Women, New York. And...

Delightful Details

Tessa Westerhof @ SPS (The Netherlands) Time goes by so slowly... and fashion is supposed to go so fast. Or was supposed, fashion has gone mid-tempo, upbeat yet slower, mild or bittersweet atmosphere with all these moves that aren't changes and other breaking news turning out to be minor facts, forgotten the day after. Once upon a little time, new faces were everywhere, literally pouring down. Every fresh face was labeled the next big thing then had to survive the hype or disappear. The shock of the new was daily, the new generation... [Lire la suite]

The Sooner the Better

        Paulina Klimek @ Eastern (Poland) One way or another, one month or another she's going to make it... One month, maybe next one, as she's going to turn 16 in June, Paulina Klimek could take the world by storm. We've been following her first steps last year which already included two trips, in London and Milan, and might have to stay tuned now for the next international moves in her career. The latest materials we received are typical beauty shots (sleek, smooth, black and white) that might not thrill you as... [Lire la suite]

No Fuss

        Tabea @ IMG (NY) Could be one of these entries with our homemade cheesy titles like "Love is all what matters" and actually at the moment we're writing these lines we have no clue on what the title would look (sound) like. Might go for that cheap romantic vibe, just to get out of the drama. So, things are pretty official now if you check out Tabea's book on IMG's website (gorgeous book, by the way) but this is not really what we want to comment on today. Don't want to say it's good or bad, don't... [Lire la suite]
