Fashion does it Better

Take it for Granted, see it in my Eyes

Magdalena Jasek @ Eskimo, Free (Poland), Marilyn (Paris & NY) We briefly talked about Magdalena Jasek's case in our previous post, covering the whole bunch of girls walking for Gaspard Yurkievich and dropped a few words on her being among the lucky ones in Jean Paul Gaultier's most expensive casting in seasons. That's it, that's not the groundbreaking news of the week but that's what really matters in the end: seeing one of our favorites from the new generation taking off and keeping a steady pace during Paris fashion week. Too... [Lire la suite]

Alternative Statements

Gaspard Yurkievich quickly became a regular name on our Paris to-do-list and it's not without any good reason behind. Skipping a meeting for the sake of a casting reminds us our core business includes much more than making then strenghtening connections, like going where things happen and try to find out why. What happened at Yurkievich this season is not very different from previous seasons but that's actually the point, this runway keeps playing its role of highlighting potential major future forces in fashion modeling. Besides... [Lire la suite]

The Real Deal

Ginta Lapina @ Women Friday morning, 10 o'clock in the 11th district of Paris, RM by Roland Mouret, styled by Sophia Neophitou and cast by Rami. Had no idea we were attending this show two days ago but got it on schedule, last minute. Love those in the morning even when they leave you less time to update before you start your actual day. Something serious in the air and the kind of place we love to go: not too crowdy, fresh wind and a bit of sun to wake up in good conditions. Said differently it would be: a great way to start a...

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]
