Urban Dreams

  Ali Carr, Lauren Brown, Lia Serge, Emily Wake and Lisanne De Jong @ Elite (NY) Alley Cats or Cats' Alley? Hard to know how the actual title of this editorial from newest Dazed & Confused sounds better. Or more appropriate. What is the most important detail: how these girls melt into the beautiful rainy urban landscape or how their presence turns a familiar-looking place into some unknown wonderland. The real magic might be in between, in the interaction between the characters and the atmosphere they evolve in. In... [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...

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...

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Kristiina Wilson's Notpolas from today

Lucia Jonova and Julija Steponaviciute @ IMG (NY), Lela and Nathaline Marchett @ Wilhelmina (NY) It's quite showtime and we have to love polaroids and snapshots right now. Can't escape, can't run away from it. Though if castings for the shows are getting full-force coverage everywhere, the last set of polas that caught our eyes are actually for a magazine, taken by photographer Kristiina Wilson. The notpolas as she call them herself are lovely rectangles with wooden background and pale light that literally bites and ates the model... [Lire la suite]

Paris is calling: SOS for Lia

    Lia Serge @ Avant (Russia), Elite (Paris), Trump (NY) One of our favorite models from Avant Models in Moscow (and we can swear you we've got dozens of darlings there) is ready for/in Paris, with Elite Model Management (second Elite girl today, cheers). Lia Serge is the right face on the right body but the right face would already be enough to describe her striking potential. Feline gaze and super-stunning jaws are the perfect formula and it shows again on her tests by Lev Efimov. She also shows how playful she can... [Lire la suite]
