Fashion does it Better

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]

Anna and Marie

Anna de Rijk @ Viva (Paris) It's not a matter of working at the top right in these few lines, it's a matter of positive evolution. Blossoming as we would say. The evolution of a character from the first stage in a career to the current level which might also be the actual level. If you want highly rewarded names to put next to hers let's keep in mind a page in latest US Vogue by Mario Testino (the already-famous Gangs of New York editorial) and some recent work with Inez and Vinoodh. Otherwise let's just enjoy what she has... [Lire la suite]

Please Talk To Me

        Anna De Rijk @ Viva (Paris) Not really in the mood for overloaded backgrounds these days (rather plain white or concrete walls) but the superannuated vibe we got from these shots plus that kind of modern touch in small clothing details were a pleasure to look at. Though, it's not the vibe or the atmosphere that really caught our attention in this new story from Numéro (issue number 115, styled by Samuel François - pictures scanned by elsaskywalker @ thefashionspot.com). Rather Anna's body language which... [Lire la suite]

Pixies and Pumpkins

            Amanda Norgaard @ Viva (Paris), Supreme (NY) It's rocking and whirling in the land of pixies and pumpkins when Amanda Norgaard gets involved in the storyboard. In a short series dedicated to movies, especially those inspired by fairytales, the delicate Dane plays one role after the other and embodies each character with the same power, bringing them all back to life. We had no trouble to imagine her as the Little Mermaid (and it's actually the only story which inspired two pages in a row),... [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]

Prada-Girl

        Maryna Linchuk @ Viva (Paris) Before making the decision to write this piece we thought of what could be your possible reactions. Are we getting that bored on a Sunday afternoon to go to the bookshop next door and start a story on the first magazine we found ? Actually not at all, wouldn't have time to waste in this and couldn't be that cynical in a topic involving models. Though, we can agree it's been a while since we last featured Maryna... if we ever did. So, why now and what's the point behind this ? ... [Lire la suite]

Gosees and Gambles

    Kirsi Pyrhonen @ Brand (Finland), Viva (Paris, London) NY fashion week is close to its end already and London is getting more attention again, as usual. Gosees and castings have already started and, without frankly speaking of frenzy, it's starting to buzz on the other side of the Channel. Brand Model Management (from Helsinki but was probably needless to add) has/will have no less than 4 girls in town. Each with her own profile, assets and career plans. Maybe the latter is the most interesting if we consider Brand's... [Lire la suite]

Papier Culte

Anna De Rijk @ Viva (Paris) 2010 finally gave us some (good) reasons to get excited again about magazines. Late 2009 didn't bring the contents we're usually looking for and we started visiting our favorite bookstores a bit less often, asking ourselves if it's due to the end of the year or the end of that precise year. Never took (had) time to think twice and never got our answer, good pages striked back before. Even in Vogue Paris. As much as we appreciate the overall mood of this magazine, castings over there aren't always our cup... [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]
