Fashion does it Better

Zilver Bullet

Looking at some digitals online, we stumbled upon those, without any name written nearby, and wondered who she is – it took a few seconds before we realized she was her. Ultimate favorite of FDIB, almost our cover girl par excellence, Zuzana Gregorova revisited. Don't exactly know when these were done, don't know when exactly. But clear things are that first we love her more than ever, second she outscores herself and that was enough for a short notice here. That's not just memories, that's how we imagine the future model to... [Lire la suite]

Head Over Heels

    Maryna Linchuk @ DNA (NY), Viva (Paris) It was a little more than a year ago, our last feature on Maryna Linchuk. A couple of pictures and a flow of words, a deep analysis of what her walk at Prada meant to us and a few more on how much we were impressed by a very simple yet extremely efficient modeling performance. Cover-girl of Vogue Russia this month, Maryna does it again or even better, bringing up to life a story that would look pretty kinetic without the little touch of presence she adds to it. Basic fashion with... [Lire la suite]

A Matter of Labels

Delphie What do you do when you have five minutes free while working on a Sunday ? Go to the bookshop at the train station and check out what new magazines they have in store. And as far as we remember, only French Elle and a couple more french glossies with no guarantee to find a nice one. Though, this week's Elle was pretty interesting (visually, as we haven't read one word yet). Most interesting part was probably their "new faces" topic, called "future top models". A bit awkward, of course, but always raising some interesting... [Lire la suite]

The Key, The Secret

      Kirby Kenny @ Viva (Paris, London), DNA (NY), Why Not (Milan) We included her in the first half of our last (ever) runway review as one of the five models that made their marks this season and at that time only New York and London results were available. Paris was finally the town that saw Kirby Kenny blossom on the very, very last days. Were keeping our fingers crossed to see her in person but the opportunity never happened. Schedule issues on both sides, we guess. And as the peak of her week took place at the... [Lire la suite]

In Bed with Heels

        Luisa Bianchin @ Joy (Milan) In bed with heels, quite a beautiful and contrasted picture and a perfect topic on a Sunday morning. Though, we just love people who are working seven days a week and Joy Milan seems to be that kind. We got Luisa's story by Johan Sandberg after brunch today and didn't think more than one minute and half before making out decision to feature it within the afternoon. Short bio on Luisa -- discovered by AM Model Management, german boutique then immediately sent under Joy's very... [Lire la suite]

Together Forfuckingever ?

            Tura Kenny and Ann Kenny @ DNA (NY) Wouldn't be the first time we feature twins on FDIB though our past experiences taught us we could have opted for a different approach. DNA's vision and promotion of the Kenny sisters (from New Jersey) gave us a hint on how we should or at least could introduce two girls sharing one look only separated by a few (worthy) details like... hair color, as in our current example. Ann the brunette, Tura the blonde. But still too simplistic if you consider their... [Lire la suite]

Ronnie Talk(ed) to Russia

Magdalena Frackowiak @ DNA (NY) Saw the cover and thought of some eighties oldies. Especially Ronnie, talk to Russia by German one-hit-wonder of 1988 (not sure, might be 87 or 89) Sheree. A young lady, an american flag and the end of Cold War coming soon. Our childhood, our history as well. A little more than twenty years later came that picture with no link to all these stories but one thing remains nonetheless. The aesthetic, the way Europeans see (and dream of) USA, apart from those french people that keep seeing greasy hamburgers... [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]

A History of High Class

Edita Vilkeviciute @ Viva (Paris, London), DNA (NY), Why Not (Milan) "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" has never been so true, talking about Edita Vilkeviciute. Not that there would be many people to disagree with the fact she's obviously beautiful but we guess the way people describe her beauty could differ a lot from one perception to the other. And that's no real wonder, after all. Edita is perfectly versatile, shows up here then disappears and comes back where you will never... [Lire la suite]

Deluxe De Rijk

Anna De Rijk @ Viva (Paris), Viva (London), Women (Milan), DNA (NY) Magazines like Vogue Italia and now 10 couldn’t miss a model like her and we certainly understand their choice: there is something about Anna you probably won’t see twice. If she’s poised at an unmatched level, she also can appear as limitlessly playful and several pictures of this editorial by Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer (styled by David Vandewal) have a subtle touch of humour. Last but not least, the name of the story, Fantastical, sounds... [Lire la suite]
