Hamburg - Paris

Theresa Genth @ Modelwerk (Hamburg), WM (Paris) From Hamburg to Paris via NY and back with a much lighter and natural shade of red. Our favorite strawberry-blonde from Germany and beyond who impressed us for her laid-back looks and crazy sense of style has finally an opportunity to go her way in the City of Lights. And we might have another opportunity to meet with Theresa Genth, crossing our fingers for this to happen if our respective schedules allow it. Just got these two panoramic pola-sheets made of WM's signature digitals and... [Lire la suite]

TMSRRE The Sequel Part 1

Barbara Palvin at Prada, backstage from style.it Over the last seasons, our TMSRRE series (The Most Subjective Runway Reviews Ever) could include more than 30 girls. This time we thought we should rather slow down our show coverage's pace as castings have become trickier than ever. No real point anymore in featuring one girl or another based on her most recent runway appearances, even backed by some serious editorial proofs or prospects. Walking this or that show doesn't mean as much as it could have in the past or maybe everybody is... [Lire la suite]

Cabs for Cuties*

Jac @ IMG, in Numéro 111 by Miguel Reveriego as scanned by elsaskywalker from thefashionspot.com Exclusive. That little word with a long meaning and a variable definition. How does a girl become exclusive. From many mouthes, you will hear by "signing an exclusivity contract with a brand" and they might be yelling it at you as if it was the most obvious thing on earth. Well, this is a kind of exclusivity as it prevents the model from working with anyone else for the whole duration of that contract. But does it really... [Lire la suite]

Prada-Girl

        Maryna Linchuk @ Viva (Paris) Before making the decision to write this piece we thought of what could be your possible reactions. Are we getting that bored on a Sunday afternoon to go to the bookshop next door and start a story on the first magazine we found ? Actually not at all, wouldn't have time to waste in this and couldn't be that cynical in a topic involving models. Though, we can agree it's been a while since we last featured Maryna... if we ever did. So, why now and what's the point behind this ? ... [Lire la suite]

Our Paris Way of Life: Daydreaming vs. Realpolitik

Olga Cerpita @ Studio (Paris), not in the review but expecting to see her again in town after a nice season in London with Profile. And Studio girls definitely belongs to our favorite Paris perks... As usual Paris packages offer a wide range of high level models, including many newcomers you are tempted to watch closely during one week running from one show to another. Hide and seek backstage, good surprises and big disappointments. Though, our approach of that new season in Paris seems a little bit different and our state of... [Lire la suite]

Une Mandarina à Paris

      Oana Timerman @ WM (Paris) Not the first time we feature Oana here but so far it was from a romanian point of view. French now, as she recently arrived in Paris, managed by WM and building her book to be fine ready for the shows -- very soon, isn't it ? Our initial plans were to feature another girl who just arrived in town but Oana is Oana (and is 5'9"5 FYI) and as one of our favorites from Mandarina Models it was quite not possible to wait. Our title is a little mistaking, though. There is actually more... [Lire la suite]

Mum was Right!

Samantha Gradoville @ IMG (Milan) Remembered some teenage moments this morning when the idea of writing this piece first popped up. Parents telling you that they are right, sometimes at least. Example ten years ago (approximatively) was after watching a movie on TV with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg -- the girl (Reese) dating a bad boy (Mark) who turned out to be a psycho and the girl's parents were right not to feel him at all then Mum telling you that you should listen to her more often. Great, doesn't make much sense,... [Lire la suite]

Regardless

    Kylie Bisutti by Jonathan Leder Before the Gig Life is not easy but... can be funny. Got some news from Jonathan Leder last night, new pictures with Victoria's Secret contest winner Kylie Bisutti. Went to the coffee machine and back to the computer, got another mail. Insider tips on Prada's casting. News from the previous evening weren't relevant as Prada's plans changed and the new news (if we can say so) were about VS girls walking the show in Milan tonight. Thought of Jonathan's mail, thought of Kylie's... [Lire la suite]

Hey Child, Stay Wild

          Alicia Kuczman @ One (NY) Long time no talk... and James Mahon popped up again on our radar two days ago! Just in time, we'd say as he wanted to share a beautiful story he did with Alicia Kuczman, officially one of our new favorites. Taking the softest side of Alicia, which isn't the most obvious idea on earth, and mixing it with some Sex Pistols tee-shirts was quite a brilliant find to highlight what (in our opinion, at least) makes her look so specific. The best of it could be its contrasts. Her... [Lire la suite]

FDIB presents: The Editorial Evening

Ophelie Rupp @ M Management (Paris) Went to the bookstore by chance because the train station is close to the office and they sell good sandwiches. Nice idea but we came back with some even nicer. With all the good stories from good magazines we found lately, with the fashion frenzy on worldwide runways leaving less place for features on new faces, we thought a good big editorial topic would be good. Opening the ball is Ophelie's picture taken from Another Magazine, dressed as a soccer-loving ballerina, shot by Charles Fréger and... [Lire la suite]
