Fashion does it Better


Hello Nelly

        Nelly @ Art-Podium (Ukraine) Taking a (short) break from shows and editorials to... take our time to drop a few words on Nelly from Art-Podium in Odessa, Ukraine. Redhead love going on, after all. Bright red, today. Our attention got caught by her bold hair color and daring hairdo, something we haven't seen often lately except maybe for Janete Friedrich and who reminds us of the glorious days of Tanya Chubko's copper bob in NYC or Andressa Fontana's major makeover in bright orange. That was a few... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Kristiina Wilson's Notpolas from today

Lucia Jonova and Julija Steponaviciute @ IMG (NY), Lela and Nathaline Marchett @ Wilhelmina (NY) It's quite showtime and we have to love polaroids and snapshots right now. Can't escape, can't run away from it. Though if castings for the shows are getting full-force coverage everywhere, the last set of polas that caught our eyes are actually for a magazine, taken by photographer Kristiina Wilson. The notpolas as she call them herself are lovely rectangles with wooden background and pale light that literally bites and ates the model... [Lire la suite]

In the Mix to the Max

    Barbara Palvin @ IMG (Paris) From sweet to acid to bitter to spicy. Using her sleek beauty from shade to shade, her doll features from angle to angle, Barbara Palvin offered us a unique fireworks of pictures this months. From L'Officiel to Jalouse, from the cover of the first to 20+ pages in the second. We're starting our trip in Barbara's world with our two picks from Jalouse's first story, Teddy Girl, shot by Paul Schmidt and style by Jennifer Eymere. From the heart of the 50's to next Summer, meet the new face who... [Lire la suite]

FDIB :heart: Barbara Palvin

Barbara Palvin @ IMG (Paris) We love Barbara Pavlin and... she loves us, it seems, calling FDIB her favorite blog in her interview for Jalouse February 2010. The magazine features a new face in each issue, very often well picked but Barbara's case (in French: Le Cas Barbara) is quite special. Not just because we're so happy to read our blog is read by such a lovely and promising newbie. Barbara got two editorials in this issue, one more in L'Officiel and its cover. We must say it's not every month we see a girl getting so much... [Lire la suite]

Three, two, ONE, fire.

  Debora Muller @ One (NY) and Amanda Laine (DNA) A few days to countdown but what countdown exactly ? Fashion week in New York or Vogue Italia in our favorite bookstore ? Both. But we still don't know which one we're waiting for (eagerly). Show packages we've seen so far have what it takes to get us enthusiastic about the newbies in town and first editorial preview of Vogue is pretty thrilling too (Jamie on the cover plus the story above, by Greg Lotus). Debora Muller is taking part of both, strengthening her editorial... [Lire la suite]

The Film

Amy Post @ SPS (The Netherlands) Easy easy, slowly yet seriously,  Amy Post is on her way to become a 5'9 (176) busy bee. Step by step, no rush required to build a lovely portfolio. Only a neverending need for quality pictutres, including good polaroids. Amy's latest batch is pretty awesome and quite different from the way she's been pictured so far. Cute little thing getting wild, like a bittersweet pop melody and the childlike empress might get decadent, she'll always remain sweet somehow. Doll looks become really interesting... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Elite's Future Faces of the Day

  Svetlana Mukhina and Jasmine Yan @ Elite (NY) Wasn't planned at all on our daily schedule but our night-time online round-up brought us to Elite's blog. And we just couldn't resist, just had to spread the word and drop a few lines on the aesthetic currently going on there. We love agencies which dare to cross their own limits, explore unknown territories. It's sometimes as simple (and striking) as a few polaroid sheets. Plus the two girls recently featured on their blog are two FDIB favorites: both Svetlana (Eskimo girl we... [Lire la suite]

Craisy Daisy, Lovely Luisa

Luisa @ Ford (NY) After facing full-force wintertime for weeks and weeks, got some summer vibe today. And Granny came to visit us at the office, trying to kill us with Dior perfume. No... that's not exactly the story we want to tell but craziness is the keyword in both Luisa's story and ours. Sit down and read carefully. Luisa arrived with her mother agent from Viva Berlin yesterday. 6pm, New York City, cold weather. She's there to visit all the agencies and stops by Ford. The rest is already history. At 6.30pm Luisa signs. Too late... [Lire la suite]

Teenage dreams are so hard to beat

Kate Kosushkina @ Supreme (NY) Title says Toy Soldier... thought it could be a remix of Toy Story and Dog Soldiers. Might be a little odd for Teen Vogue who may have borrowed it to some lyrics. Or whatever. Wherever. Cool idea and cool overall theme. Also cool to see some editorial stuff of Kate Kosushkina, still too rare on glossy paper yet (cute in V, though). This one by Nick Haymes could be a little masterpiece and a sort of avant-premiere, giving us a taste of how Kate works out some very specific atmospheres, creating... [Lire la suite]

Don't need icecubes

      Anu Koski @ FM (London) Twice this year already and thrice in a lifetime. Anu seems on her way to be regularly featured here and truth might be that being signed with FM London seriously helps. We're not biased, just pretty much into the agency's aesthetic and efficiency. Three polas above to judge and all three going straight to the point: Anu's best asset might be her ability to fit various different molds. Her mother agent (Brand in Helsinki) was probably the first to be aware of her chameleon talents and... [Lire la suite]
