Fashion does it Better


Summer Hit

            Johanna Kneppers, Claudia Seiler and Lys Inger @ d'management (Milan) We don't know if we should say it again as we can almost write it every month but Amica did it again. Could be our motto or the current status of FDIB's facebook page. But let's stay on topic and stick to the story itself, three girls from d'management shot by Massimo Pamparana for the newest issue of Amica. Italian magazine, italian photographer, italian agency and a very international casting that includes Johanna... [Lire la suite]

The Elite Squad

Ali Carr: caught our attention with some tests by Jonathan Leder a bit before the season then we simply fell in love with her look after she walked for Marc Jacobs. And that's just the intro. In our recent entries, her name was quoted a few times to illustrate what we call a fabulous first season: no overwhelming buzz but overwhelming facts. Her way from NY shows to Paris runways is just the way it should be for a girl making her first steps, as selective as expensive. Put names like Burberry or Aquilano.Rimondi on the list and add...

Ranya as a Rei of Light

    Ranya Mordanova @ Avant (Russia), Supreme (NY), Women (Paris, Milan), Tess (London) It takes a good model to enhance a collection or even just an outfit. It takes to this girl to be absolutely multi-tasked to let the magic happen a few minutes on the catwalk or on glossy paper for a little longer. It takes a lot, really. But what we found in current issue of Another Magazine might go far beyond. It takes to be one in a million to model an atmosphere, to tell a story and get into a designer's or a label's mood. Ranya... [Lire la suite]

Bitten by a Tiger-Lily

        Lia Serge @ Avant (Moscow), Elite (NY), Elite (Paris) Made sense to us to publish a post on Karl Rothenberger's work today, right after our extended feature on Kristiina's coverage. After all, Karl's pictures were among the first ones to teach us the importance of a great aesthetic when it comes to backstage materials. His collection of fashion week shots shows how important it is to treat each as a scene and the whole as an atmosphere. Was for the artistic side, for the model agent-point of view it's...

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...

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...

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]

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. And to give you a little taste of what's coming up, here is Yana, new girl from Avant Models, Moscow. Shot by Nikita Manin and just landed in Milan yesterday. Sounds good and looks good so far. But just wait until we can upload more of her brilliant book, both classy and experimental of course. A must see for tonight.

TMSRRE part 12: Ursula

      Ursula @ FM (London) Yesterday we were speechless and breathless when we saw her walking for Christopher Kane. Immediately thought of a report on her. Could have done it overnight but we were right to wait a little longer. A matter of hours, as the missing piece of the puzzle just arrived and left us speechless and breathless once again. Tears we cried were tears of joy this time. Magical moments that we didn't even expected. Ursula belongs to our favorite models since the day we noticed her first. Something... [Lire la suite]

Meet Mary !

Mary Sher @ Avant (Russia) We know we should relax today but we thought there was no better moment to introduce Mary Sher, newest girl at Avant Models, than right after a long story about Viktoriya. And, after all, Monday is coming in less than eight hours. Stopping here with unnecessary explanation and go straight to the point. Mary looked incredibly promising at first sight (just one picture we've been able to see two weeks ago) and once promises became real, we knew she was one we should rely on. Eyes and...
