Let Us See and We'll Give You Thunders

Don't you worry a single bit, we're in heavy talk for the next new face (sorry for the potential disappointment, both of them are already placed but we can't fight against Günstagram, we are old and irrelevant every now and then) but for now (and even for then) it's time for those we like. Weekend is looking at us, so does beer and cheap salty stuff not to get too nervous. One is the epitome of our muses, the other is getting her spot in our heaven at the moment. Both share one thing (or two) – they are represented by Women in NYC... [Lire la suite]

Meow Meow (Iffy Afternoon)

We were chasing around looking for materials of a totally different face when we stumbled upon these images as we landed on Silja Magg's page. Our sweet memories of many pictures she took gave us the kick to dig deeper, check further and take some time off to indulge ourselves with some more or less recent work of hers. Was a very smart and lovely way to wait for Miu Miu's show-list to be released and, even if these little gold nuggets aren't exactly what one would call brand new (roughly two years, or so), we felt allowed to...

Veni Vidi Vici

Tune your eyes and ears for one of the last times as we did while working on this piece. Who are the "faces of five years of FDIB" was the main question behind our idea to (re-)feature a final time these models who regularly appeared on this page from their first steps in this business till end of our project. We don't pretend we took part in anything in their careers but were our wildcards from the starts, models we were probably among the only ones (besides their agents of course) to believe in their future and who proved us the...

(Sur)Real Women

Nimue Smit and Viktoriya Sasonkina @ Women (NY) The opportunity was to tempting to let it go and every reason to feature both Nimue and Viktoriya is good to take. So good to take when the pictures are so good themselves. And they might be so good because you can't properly put them into one category or another. The visual thrill is a sure thing, the aesthetic is matching ours on every page but the name is hard to find. Editorial ? Advertising ? Candids ? Or just a pretty and fakely random mix of everything ? Anyway, these are from... [Lire la suite]

TMSRRE The Sequel Part 1

Barbara Palvin at Prada, backstage from style.it Over the last seasons, our TMSRRE series (The Most Subjective Runway Reviews Ever) could include more than 30 girls. This time we thought we should rather slow down our show coverage's pace as castings have become trickier than ever. No real point anymore in featuring one girl or another based on her most recent runway appearances, even backed by some serious editorial proofs or prospects. Walking this or that show doesn't mean as much as it could have in the past or maybe everybody is... [Lire la suite]

Viktoriya's Secrets

  Viktoriya Sasonkina @ Women (NY) and Karlie Kloss @ Next (NY) The title was easy to find this week, timing helped a lot and the pun was fun, set and done. Well, we don't have much time left for procrastination tonight so we're not going to turn around the jerrican (in French we use "turn around the pot" but we thought it was a lot fancier to turn around a jerrican): this piece is dedicated to Viktoriya Sasonkina and (almost) nothing or no one else. It all started while reading Sans Artifice two days ago or so. Some bright... [Lire la suite]

The Viktoriyan Era

Viktoriya Sasonkina @ Women (NY) Can't get enough. Can't wait. Can't take my eyes off. The usual sentences to describe any piece of Viktoriya Sasonkina's work. Once you fell into the deep trap of her appeal, it's almost impossible to get out of it and a try would even get you deeper. This is for her magic. Now, on a more strategic side, we also owe this precious and undying love to the careful management she receives from Women worldwide which could be simplified as "precious girls need precious bookings and precious...

TMSRRE part 0: Wanted Women

      Viktoriya Sasonkina opens the ball for our second season of TMSRRE (The Most Subjective Runway Review Ever) as the symbol of these selections, having a predilection for New York runways. Fingers crossed as we want her to bite in the Big Apple again,  tomorrow is going to be the serious start of everything and we're watching the schedule with a neon-yellow pen in our hand. We are ready.Next one is Mina Cvetkovic, a former (and future?) post-TMSRRE-girl and Viktoriya's campaign mate. We've been... [Lire la suite]

Prada Talking feat. The Girl Who Sails Across The Wind

Viktoriya Sasonkina @ Women (NY) Twice on the cover and thrice inside, she's a Vogue Italia girl who's hard to hide. Taking part of the Prada ads and Alberta Ferretti for the second time in a row. Building up her portfolio the same selective way she booked her shows, only the best ones and the best for her, where she'll hit the target eyes-closed. Well, better keep them open as they're a huge part of her appeal if not exactly what you can't overlook. One of our previous post on her was called "Eye-catching eyes" and we thought...

Jewels are shining bright

  It's Prada so it has already been seen almost everywhere on the internet. No new picture and not even fresh news. Just this Prada picture again. Was quite a good feeling to discover it a few days, right before everything slows down for the end of the year. We too might slow down. But won't disappear and you still can expect some updates before 2009. We finally decided to post this picture for two reasons. First one is obvious - Sasonkinian news can't wait here. Some of you will find we're completely biased if we say she... [Lire la suite]
