A Matter of Labels

Delphie What do you do when you have five minutes free while working on a Sunday ? Go to the bookshop at the train station and check out what new magazines they have in store. And as far as we remember, only French Elle and a couple more french glossies with no guarantee to find a nice one. Though, this week's Elle was pretty interesting (visually, as we haven't read one word yet). Most interesting part was probably their "new faces" topic, called "future top models". A bit awkward, of course, but always raising some interesting... [Lire la suite]

The Supreme Series, Part Four: Kel

        Kel Markey @ Supreme (NY) Our Supreme Series wouldn't be complete without one of the newest faces in the featured team. Models we picked for the previous three posts were all different in terms of look and career pattern, Kel Markey on the list adds another element to our point. The young lady from Florida is already getting some serious love from NYC and we have no trouble in believing it as looking at her portfolio quickly becomes addictive even if it's still work in progress. Visually thrilling,... [Lire la suite]

Optically Optimal

        Nastasia Ohl @ Next (NY) Long time no words on Nastasia Ohl, too long and enough silence. Were thinking of a new feature on her quite often, were waiting for the opportunity. It might be always like this, after all, always waiting for the right materials to pop up or even looking for them in a relentless quest. Hunting pictures, quite a beautiful way to spend weekends -- not to mention it does actually have some relaxing aspects as well, training your eye without working for real. Amazing, isn't it ? Not...

Valuable

  Val @ AM Model Management (Germany) We introduced Val a few weeks ago with some gorgeous digitals of hers (right, the girl with the striped top) and promised you a second part with more materials to shed some light on her actual modeling skills. Here we go, Friday afternoon and the weekend coming soon (even if this morning had everything of a Monday morning). Val, 5'9 from Germany, with Russian roots and a geniune love for skateboarding, don't know if we mentioned that before.       Clearly not the random... [Lire la suite]

SuperCasting at SuperModels

  It's going to be one of the biggest casting event in Europe this year, it's going to take place at the end of this week. On Sunday, 16th of May, Supermodels Model Management will hold a huge casting in Vilnius with no less than (or more or less) 200 girls attending the event to be seen by several international scouts and representative of foreign agencies. We had experiences of open castings gathering hundreds of girls but this one will only show girls carefully selected by the mother agency which makes it a totally different... [Lire la suite]

Summer Hit

            Johanna Kneppers, Claudia Seiler and Lys Inger @ d'management (Milan) We don't know if we should say it again as we can almost write it every month but Amica did it again. Could be our motto or the current status of FDIB's facebook page. But let's stay on topic and stick to the story itself, three girls from d'management shot by Massimo Pamparana for the newest issue of Amica. Italian magazine, italian photographer, italian agency and a very international casting that includes Johanna... [Lire la suite]

That Mood

Alicia Kuczman @ One (NY) We might be in this exact mood today. Were just saying how Chloe Dole "dares to express" when she works with a photographer and Alicia Kuczman is exactly that kind of expressive models that got attention for bringing her own mood along her looks (remember that short story we did on Alicia loves to move). After great debuts in New York walking for Marc Jacobs and ending her season solely walking for Miu Miu in Paris, Alicia immediately branded herself as a precious girl you won't see at random...

She's got the Look

        Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) We could write exactly the same as we did for Maaike, what haven't we said on Valerie that you'd need to know. Well, what you might be interested in right now is her brand new TopShop materials (make-up campaign), just released last week. For everything else, it's the same good old love for her look and modeling work. We didn't add her to the Muses section of the page for no reason and best is that we actually didn't wake up one day with that idea. She... [Lire la suite]

The Supreme Series, Part Three: Amanda

      Amanda Norgaard @ Supreme (NY) First part was dedicated to Chanel Iman, second one to Ieva Laguna and a bonus feature on Chrishell Stubbs was the icing on the cake of last week. As fresh materials kept pouring on our inbox and our interest in Supreme's current evolution hasn't stopped growing since last Thursday, here comes Amanda Norgaard. Another look, another profile and career pattern. And, of course, another story. There would be much to say on her versatility, provided she seems in her element with the new... [Lire la suite]

Maaike²

    Maaike Klaasen @ SPS (The Netherlands) Is there anything about Maaike we didn't write ? Don't think so, but there might be some pictures you haven't seen yet and these ones just picture her the right way. From serene to spooky, from playful to gently crazy, the palette of expressions she pulls out is subtle and precious. Shot recently by Gilbert François (check out the feature we dedicated to him and his work) in his very own style, this short black and white story focuses on what can be considered as Maaike's essence...
