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...

Ones in a Million

  Debora Muller @ One (NY) The Lil'Ones are back! And truth is that these Lil'Ones are actually tall Ones. Debora peaks at 5'10"5 and Sydney does even better at 5'11. Endless silhouettes, unique faces. Perfect combo ? Not only. Debora Muller rocked last season with A-level runways from day one till the end of shows then strengthened her editorial appeal (and roster). Whoever wanted to bury One Management a few seasons ago was obviously wrong. No funerals in Fall 2010 and we love phoenix-agencies. Back in time, stronger than... [Lire la suite]

The Edge

          Polina Sova @ Ford (NY) The other day, when we woke up in the mooorning light, we pulled on our jeans and we felt alright... and thought about this word, (too?) much used in the modeling world: edgy. What does this (still) mean ? Got the same in french, same use so, we started thinking of it in french first to come to the conclusion it truly exists but maybe the way it's used today (and yesteryear) is slightly imperfect. Not completely misused but too fastly said somehow. As we don't want it to lose... [Lire la suite]

Favors and Flavors

    Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) Happy (busy) Monday! Valerie is regularly featured here and we wouldn't be surprised if we decided to put her in our MUSES section one day or another. After an evolution from shy unexperienced newbie (yeah, you know the story) to a full-blossoming young lady playing with her presence on any kind of glossy paper, Valerie's career rythm finally went completely uptempo. With the kind of major materials that allows her to express like never before (see Elle Italia above), her... [Lire la suite]

Getting closer

    Yana @ Avant (Russia) Getting closer to the point, having a closer look at Yana. We promised you and here we go. Yes, we guess it, you might not be totally satisfied. Need to see more. Want to see more. No need to rush, though. Yana is way too precious to get her whole portfolio spread in one post only and we decided to do it step by step. This time again, pictured by Nikita Manin who portrayed her as a silver-screen actress. Highlighting a strong  jawline in disguise with a neat black and white all in subtle... [Lire la suite]

Broken words can mend

      Charlene Almarvez @ Ford (NY) We often think, even say (and write) that the word "supermodel" became slightly pointless these days. Though, we were slightly wrong. Or maybe we should take it , for what it seems to be now: a trademark of Ford's worldwide contest. Supermodel of the World. Leave the trinity and the glorious moments to the era they belong and give this word a modern meaning. Finally. If it still refers to huge exposure and high level, if the sky remains the limit, the new breed of... [Lire la suite]

Yesterday, it seems

        Niia Alakoski @ Premier (London) It must be one year ago. Or something like that. Already twelve months ago, unbelievable as it still seems to us that Niia Alakoski, fab face from Finland at Premier, is completely new and her looks still radiates freshness. With a little more skills and a more laid-back attitude on polaroids. Well, one year or not, Niia is back on the blog today and we're happy to feature her again regardless if you'll take it a celebration or a nice update. What happened since last time ?...

Avant Premiere

Yana @ Avant (Russia) Got a meeting very soon so no time to update more yet. But please, stay tuned, our schedule today i's worth waiting a few hours.

Ford's New Stamp

        Isabelle Stork @ Ford (NY) Two weeks after the finale, the girl who won a safe spot at Ford NY can already tell if their dreams are becoming reality. At least, they are experiencing model-life right now and for some of them it seems on a good slope already. Swedish sweetie Isabelle Stork is among the lucky ones, watching her book grow day after day: from digital truth (above) to tests able to enhance her potential (check later). Sixteen and 5'10, Isabelle is also the living example of  how Ford's eyes... [Lire la suite]

Good Romance

    Romana Umrianova @ Elite (Prague/Bratislava), Elite (Paris, Milan, London), Supreme (NY) Waiting for this for a little while: a brand new opportunity to talk about Romana. Don't remember the last time but it might be for Paris fashion week, RTW Spring 2010, as one of the girls who left us the strongest impression. Nice natural style and lots of energy behind that cute little face and endlessly leggy silhouette. So, what's next for Ms. Umrianova ? A few things for sure and two pages in current issue of L'Officiel Paris... [Lire la suite]
