Fashion does it Better



Willemijn Koppelman @ SPS (The Netherlands) Back to Willemijn, keeping the story going, on and on. Slowly but one the right slope, making new steps and taking new directions, building a book - that's the point, always. Willemijn is another of these "unusual beauties" we were talking about on monday while featuring Olga Savina. These girls who doesn't fit in the mainstream mold but are able to catch attention, much more sometimes.  News for her these days are a trip to Asia, planned for next week after signing with FM...

Lucky steps

        Julija Steponaviciute @ Baltic (Lithuania), IMG (Paris, NY), Elite (Milan) Long time we wanted to write a short story, a quick report on Julija. Inspiration was there, facts were obvious, pictures were gorgeous... so why did we hold this piece off until tonight. No clue. Maybe just a feeling, striving for the best moment after the season rush, after the hype calmed down as there isn't any touch of hype in these lines. Timeless models (in making) need more that just a few lines when the news are hot. Such... [Lire la suite]

Image Development

Elizaveta Vishnyakova @ Image Discovery (Ukraine) Ukrainian wunderkind from Image Discovery is going her way. Development. Provided her young age, each step is precious in this long process, each piece unveils progresses and highlights her skills at expressing feelings in front of the camera. Elizaveta's recent trip in Tokyo (with Switch) brought several new opportunities of tests and brilliant little editorials to set a good start for her career. What will be her next destination ? Might be too early to tell right now.... [Lire la suite]

To know her is to love her

Olga Savina @ Mandarina (Romania) Pretty girls are legions on runways today. Some are celebrating the return of classic beauties, some are complaining about the huge wave of blondes rocking and rolling everywhere in every city. But does this quick picture really shows the reality of this season ? Not exactly. Next propelled Valerija Kelava at a very high level for a beginner, with campaign rumors (or reliable info now) and a stunning editorial in latest Dazed & Confused. Ford-girl Jacquelyn Jablonski ranks among the most... [Lire la suite]

Playing games under the pouring rain

        Tessa Westerhof @ SPS (The Netherlands) Shadows and lights, sorrows and delights... the way things are going all the time. But Tessa's pictures seem to tell another story, less contrasted and showing harmony on every piece. Where the secret is ? Serene features or Yorick Nubé's inimitable way to catch that kind of vibe ? Something halfway, as always. We ended last week with Yorick's New York pictures of Jasmine and start this new one with some Dutch diamonds from his portfolio. Two worlds, two moods yet...

Eight Days to Countdown

Scouting goes from "get discovered by chance at your local shopping-mall" to "be seen, be signed - rush to worlwide events". Usually we're more focused on street-scouting and lucky discoveries, we still enjoy the charms of the good-old way to find new talents. But contests have definitely started to take their own place in our heart as another reliable process of discovering models after attending a couple of them at a small-town level. A good way not to overlook anyone and when they are run by high-profile... [Lire la suite]

            Margo Bushueva @ Ford (Paris) Photographers' way to describe the models they worked with is always interesting and inspiring. What do they think and why do they like a girl more than the previous one, what makes her suddenly a better model and who do they want to shoot with next time. We featured Alexandre Brunet's story published in Dedicate a few weeks ago, including a few pictures of his favorite - Stella Maxwell. Time went by and time brought him another favorite in front of his camera:... [Lire la suite]

Shiny, shiny

        Jasmine Yan @ Elite (NY) Second time here for Jasmine, brand new but already a favorite. We first focused on her incredible ability to express emotions on raw pictures (Jonathan Leder is a maestro for that), this time it will be her soft and subtle features only and with a slightly more elaborated styling. Still nothing but Jasmine, despite the city background and the sleek, sunny day aesthetic. Yorick Nube certainly knows how to picture both harmony and/then drama out of casual atmospheres and does it... [Lire la suite]

Way ahead of the game

      Hind Sahli @ DNA (NY), Elite (Paris), Elite (Milan), Elite (London) It's been a little while since we introduced Hind a few months ago with a couple of polaroids and her first tests done in Paris before summer. And we've been relentlessly thinking of doing an update on her as her book started to grow, she made a stop by New York signing with DNA and finally started her career with a beautiful first season there. First class shows piled up day after day from BCBG to 3.1 Philip Lim via Philosophy, Lacoste,... [Lire la suite]

Acting in English

  Gaia Weiss @ Just WM (Paris) Born and raised in Paris with French and Polish roots, Gaia seems to be another of those precious discoveries that only Eskimo knows how to find. Another one and another completely different one, with a lovely story behind her modeling career and a look that playfully goes back and forth between classic and rock'n'roll. It becomes even more interesting when you know both are heavily related, her look starts where her story brought her when she fell in love with London after being a perennial... [Lire la suite]
