Fake Friday

  Karlijn Alderliesten @ SPS (The Netherlands) Friday afternoon, time for new faces. There is no specific reason in that move except the mood, we're in such a mood for newbies at this exact minute. Had our Friday booze on Thursday eve so let's act as if we were Monday morning. If it has to be crazy, let's make it crazier. On a totally different note, far from our pre-weekend private jokes, Karlijn is making her first steps right now, carefully groomed by her mother agent from SPS Model Management in Amsterdam. If we had her... [Lire la suite]

And Now

Tessa Gelderblom @ SPS (The Netherlands) It's almost one day, one Tessa or let's just say here comes the other Tessa from SPS Model Management, Tessa Gelderblom. Just as fresh as her homonymous agency-mate, Miss Gelderblom took a different road with her different look and if you may not remember which one has what last name, you can mistake their faces. Actually the two could have been featured in the same post as these stories by Gilbert François were initially meant to be a huge one, a panoramic overview of the newbies at SPS.... [Lire la suite]

Delightful Details

Tessa Westerhof @ SPS (The Netherlands) Time goes by so slowly... and fashion is supposed to go so fast. Or was supposed, fashion has gone mid-tempo, upbeat yet slower, mild or bittersweet atmosphere with all these moves that aren't changes and other breaking news turning out to be minor facts, forgotten the day after. Once upon a little time, new faces were everywhere, literally pouring down. Every fresh face was labeled the next big thing then had to survive the hype or disappear. The shock of the new was daily, the new generation... [Lire la suite]

Maaike²

    Maaike Klaasen @ SPS (The Netherlands) Is there anything about Maaike we didn't write ? Don't think so, but there might be some pictures you haven't seen yet and these ones just picture her the right way. From serene to spooky, from playful to gently crazy, the palette of expressions she pulls out is subtle and precious. Shot recently by Gilbert François (check out the feature we dedicated to him and his work) in his very own style, this short black and white story focuses on what can be considered as Maaike's essence...

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]

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]

No need to describe

Dana Korstenbroek @ SPS (The Netherlands) Dana is one of the rare models you absolutely can't put in any category except her own or in all possible categories at the same time. Multi-tasked in front of the camera, a totally unique face yet with the kind of beauty that can appeal to quite a broad audience: she seems to play on every front and seems to make it work each time. Perfectly. Last piece of her portfolio was shot by Gilbert François who already captured Amy Post from SPS recently (and was able to unveil the most unexepected... [Lire la suite]

From Head to Toe

      Amy Post @ SPS (The Netherlands) Development is going on, development is going wild and for Amy it's taking a serious turn at the moment. Newest piece of her portfolio was taken by the one and only Gilbert François and highlights another palette of expressions of the dutch doll from SPS Model Management in Amsterdam. Cuteness might have been the first thing we've noticed in the past, intensity is definitely what we're seeing right now. Presence if you prefer, charisma if you want to go a little further in the...

Merel does it much, much better

      Merel Zoet @ SPS (The Netherlands) We've had an eye open on Merel for a little while and it's a big pleasure to have the right material from SPS Model Management to feature her, here and now. Thanks to the limitless talent of photographer Gilbert François, Merel is ready to travel now. With no make-up involved, it became possible to capture her very natural look. What we love is this playful gaze, moody pout and perfect cheekbones which, when they all mix together turn into one of the most interesting faces of... [Lire la suite]

Meet Noah !

Noah @ Ulla (The Netherlands) She's one of these girls who can do it all and it shows. Clearly. An amazing blend of tests by Gilbert François and Yorick Nube is the very best way to be aware of this, mixing some precious underwear shots to more ethereal ones featuring her silky, warm brown (or dark blond) locks. Signed with Premier in London, 17 and 174, we're pretty sure she can rely on that all-round potential to get various kind of jobs and enjoy an unusual kind of career. Girls like Edita Vilkeviciute or Martha Streck... [Lire la suite]
