Laila and Friends

      Laila Pudule, Kaya Wilkins and Deana Noop @ FM (London), Heather Koenitzer and Anna Tatton @ Bookings (London) The Return of the Independent Spirit. A title has never been that true. True to the atmosphere, true to the magazine (POP's brand new version), to the photographer Jason Evans and to all the young models featured in this story. As this is where we always put the strongest emphasis, we'll focus on the casting once again. Three FM girls including Laila Pudule (from 2B Models in Latvia and among our... [Lire la suite]

She only shares It with the Lens

Tiffany Nicholas @ Elite (NY) While so many others are starting to rush and run, showtime being sooner than ever now, a few girls are just taking development step by step, making sure their book is growing for the best. Among them, one of the most interesting is probably Tiffany Nicholas, a 5'8 young American from Elite in New York. She has already worked with some our favorite photographers like Jonathan Leder and strikes back with new black and white tests by another favorite - Bradford Gregory. Tiffany caught our eyes...

From Coast to Coast, from Ear to There

        Willemijn Koppelman @ SPS (The Netherlands) Back to the other side of the ocean, back to the growing frenzy of New York and back to Dutch girls at the same time. Willemijn - can we call her one of our perennial personal favorites now ? - is making her debuts there with Women Direct one season after catching eyes and attention walking for Marni in Milan. Go your own way, take your natural path. Willemijn carries her edgy look everywhere with her - carry on. Her moody yet delightfully soft expressions were... [Lire la suite]

Anatomy of the Chameleon

Isabelle Rogg @ Place (Germany) What makes a model stand out by her chameleon-abilities ? Where does this rare talent take its roots and how does it express ? These questions get even less easy and slightly tricky when the girl we're talking about has her very own look, with unique features and would actually stand out from the crowd for this alone. But some precious young ladies definitely know how to shine both for their face and the way they morph into different characters. Models are here to model and that's what Isabelle... [Lire la suite]

I am She as You are She as You are Me and We are all Together

Alexandra & Caroline Clot @ Micha Models (The Netherlands) Dutch agencies seem to reach another level again, always in the spotlights for months already and making headlines almost every single week on some models-focused websites. Tjarda launched Anniek who's waiting for her first editorial pieces that should be stunning, Models in Company found good homes abroad for their most fabulous newbies, Code keeps the level at Nimue's height and SPS is relentlessly developing their golden girlies worldwide. Now comes Micha with... [Lire la suite]

Meet Izzy !

Izzy Dyer @ Eskimo Days are getting so hectic we hadn't much time to "meet" new girls lately but we didn't forget about it and kept the excitement for brand new faces alive, even when fashion weeks are so soon and capturing most of our attention. So, today you're going to meet Izzy, one of the recent finds of international network Eskimo. Another one, another look. At almost 5'10 (177), the young Brit who's already signed with Zone in London, has got even more assets than her cute pout would let you imagine,... [Lire la suite]

Waiting for the Start (Again)

Anemone @ AM Model Management (Germany) The wheels are turning, faster and faster. The machine is on and unstoppable like the wind. Like time. Summer months are always slower and it makes September looking even faster while it goes already fast enough to make it hard to follow. Keeping track of the best ones becomes an every-minute work, eyes are set in high-speed mode and we all have to get ready for the most unexpected moves. Latest one of that kind was Anemone's return. She's back on tracks and hopefully back for good,... [Lire la suite]

Odile Coco on a Fashion Mission

        Odile Coco @ SPS (The Netherlands) We just did an extended feature on the maestro yesterday and some new pictures by Gilbert François are already out. Odile goes now by Odile Coco, inspiring name for a girl who never stops getting better and better. Makes her name as precious as her look and attitude, makes the whole package more intriguing and mysterious. The greatest surprises in her book these days aren't only Gilbert's fantastic four (last rows above) but the combination of brilliant new tests... [Lire la suite]

Peerless Princess

        Helen George @ MC2 (NY) No matter if you just call her fantastic like Jonathan Leder (who took her polas above) did or if you go through all the possible superlatives to describe her look, one thing is sure: Helen is one to keep in mind at MC2 this season. Delicate from head to toe with that swan-like silhouette and her natural talent to find the right pose, the true English Rose knew how to add her personal touch to every editorial she was involved in from total cuteness to the most distant moods. A... [Lire la suite]

Gilbert François: Do What You Want, Be What You Are

Merel Zoet @ SPS (Amsterdam) and Dana Korstenbroek @ SPS (Amsterdam) "Fashion is emotion" were the first words of photographer Gilbert François when he started talking about his work. Our goal was to dedicate the whole post to him and thought we needed to unveil the philosphy behind the pictures. "Never pose, never act. It's fake, it looks fake and a model must be her true self" in front of the camera. Do what you want, be what you are. There might be the secret of his unique touch and the reason why we love his work that much. Yes,... [Lire la suite]
