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]

Nina. Needless to say more.

Nina Meijer @ IMG (NY, Paris) It's not because we said we're not going to do extended show reviews that we don't care about great girls. We're still obsessed with any face having potential and simply fell in love with Nina's look when we saw her first tests. IMG Paris style, like several other girls, but a very unique way to handle that aesthetic and work out the exercise. Next step was clearly on its way when we discovered she will play a part in IMG NY's show team this season with a lovely showcard that makes you hesitate:... [Lire la suite]

Couture Candy

Michelle Den Hollander @ SPS (The Netherlands), Next (London, Paris) Innocent expression and fake leather leggings ? Could work and could fit for a girl who start on the right slope this season with some good spot during Couture week in Paris. Couture doesn't make a career anymore but remains a good way to test one girl's approach of the runway. You've got to be tall (she is), to walk well (she does), to look good (hell, yeah, she does more than ever). So, Couture is one of the best training ground, in a real place with real picky...

Introducing Kadri

Kadri Nurmsoo @ EMA (Estonia), Women (Milan) We had an eye on the precious Estonian from EMA Model Management for a few months already, caught by her quiet yet powerful blue gaze and incredible bone structure: delicate nose, strong cheekbones and a lovely chin. Her height of 5'10"5 (179) and a leggy silhouette should also increase her chances to hit the runways soon. Kadri Nurmsoo hit Milan already and Women Management just had time to take new polas this morning while organising a couple of test shoots. From the land of Karmen... [Lire la suite]

Meet Tatyana !

        Tatyana Korol'kova @ Image Discovery (Ukraine) Girls that seem to play with the tiny line between really strange and obviously gorgeous, girls that push it quite far and even beyond. Girls that makes the fashion business go round or at least our little world look better. Girls like Lily Cole or Masha Tyelna a few times ago, like Daiane Conterato when she appeared on the scene or like Lindsey Wixson last season. They are no beauties in its classic meaning but got what so many others don't: charm. When we... [Lire la suite]

Face (of) the Future

Alexandrina Turcan @ Mandarina (Romania), Major (NY), Major (Paris) Had to wait a while, seemed we wait for ages but her we go now. Wait until Major NY finally releases its newest show package and until the magazine pops up. Wait, wait, wait but in the end it was really worth to wait. First of all, the February issue of 160g Magazine is quite awesome (also check the story featuring Lucia Tresova) and Billy Kidd did an amazing job for this Bionic theme. Colors and shadows perfectly match and Alexandrina's portfolio reached quite a... [Lire la suite]

Ginger Inger

        Lys Inger @ Avant (Russia), Marilyn (Paris, NY) If you don't write Avant Models black on white next to her name, it would be pretty hard to figure out where a girl like Lys Inger comes from. Obviously Russian when you know her mother agency but nothing in her (nick-)name or even her face screams East or West. Truth is she looks like a globetrotter from head to toe and was perfect for an editorial that seemed heavily inspired by traveling around the world. Wicked boho-chic or urban jungle, call the mood...

Midgnight Morphing ? No Way!

      Theresa Genth @ Modelwerk (Germany) People changing at midnight into werewolves, under the pale full-moon light ? Bullshit. Doesn't work that way. If one day you're getting unusually hairy or want to eat the neighbour's dog, you should think about it... you're turning into a lycanthrope. With models makeover, the process is pretty similar. No full-moon and no big bang needed, only a darker tone of hair color to enhance pale skin. Theresa Genth just experienced it. From strawberry-blond hair to a dark auburn... [Lire la suite]

Meet Marta !

      Marta Zaleska @ Eastern (Poland) Fresh from Poland and freshly signed with Eastern Models via their Supermodelka contest (she arrived 3rd), Marta Zaleska caught our attention among the winners for her soft yet striking features, intriguing almond eyes, serene yet slightly spooky gaze. Well, there are many reasons to be captivated by the 5'9 (176) young lady and we bet agencies interested in classic beauties with a twist should get our point. Another fact that placed her among our recent favorites from Eastern... [Lire la suite]

Meet Yana !

        Yana Sotnikova @ Avant (Russia) Here we go, finally. Full-frontal introduction of Yana Sotnikova, our beloved newcomer from Avant Moscow who just signed with Women Milan. We previewed Yana at the end of last week with a few mysterious shots by Nikita Manin, suggesting a magical bone structure. Now, the new batch of tests by Lev Efimov is totally unveiling the powerful cheekbones, olive-green eyes and classic features of the 5'11 (180) young lady...     ... and truth is you can observe her...
