Fashion does it Better


Chaneling Energies, Part Two: Nastasia

        Nastasia Ohl @ Viva (Paris) We dropped her name in our previous piece called Chaneling Energies, featuring Tara Jean one week ago. Nastasia, with Viva in Paris, is one of the models who ingtrigued us the most over the last few months. Intriguing looks, gorgeous locks, charm and charisma in her expressions: that's how we noticed her. Also signed with DNA in NY, our curly beauty added a touch of Couture in her career when she walked for Chanel at the beginning of the month. Once again, fresh and... [Lire la suite]

For a Tango, it Takes Two

 Laura Blokhina and Queeny Van Der Zande @ Viva (Paris) New German Vogue, new sensations and perennial FDIB-favorites. Laura and Queeny, the epitomes of editorials girls from Viva Paris (and London, by the way) sharing the spotlights and sunlights of this brand new story by Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer. Naughty twins or close friends, no matter where your imagination leads you, there is much to see and to read between the lines. A perfect use of nudity - sublte rather than overexposed, smart yet daring. Classy... [Lire la suite]

Casting at Viva in Amica: the New Classic ?

Clara Buchanan, Donna Loos and Stephanie Van Arendonk @ Viva (Paris) This month, Amica's casting flies to Paris and meets with three girls from Viva, shot by Van Mossevelde + N. First of them is Clara Buchanan, just featured below. Timing was just perfect as we got our copy of Amica only a few hours after publishing our feature on Clara. Let's celebrate her third one here while waiting for more of the girl who's currently re-designing the concept of classic beauty. The same could also fit for Stephanie Van Arendonk, a...

Relax baby, Vogue will turn out fine

      Anna De Rijk @ Viva (Paris), Viva (London), Women (Milan), DNA (NY) She's one of the best surprise (not a complete surprise as we already knew since F/W 09-10 she's got some very good eyes standing behind her) of the Resort collections, opening Prada then walking Miu Miu. The most delicate chin of the whole fashion world is getting more popular everyday and Anna is gathering a very impressive list of jobs these days. It doesn't stop with resort runways and even if it did, it would already be quite huge. But... [Lire la suite]

The Viva-DNA Crossover Team

Queeny Van Der Zande @ Viva (Paris)Kelli Lumi @ DNA (NY) Nadia Serlidou @ Viva (Paris) Skye Stracke @ DNA (NY), Viva (Paris) Viva and DNA. Paris and NY. The two agencies are well-know for some successful models they share and we could drop a few names here. They would ring a bell, both as icons from glorious past eras or as today's most sought-after faces. What about tomorrow ? Who are the iconic girls from Viva, from DNA or from Viva and DNA together ? We could also tell about Elise Helene, our favorite redhead of the moment... [Lire la suite]

A supplement of soul

Luize Salmgrieze @ Viva (Paris), Women Direct (NY) Luize. From the untouch new face a few times ago to the talented young woman of today. Incredible. The way she improved, the way she creates characters, her playful way to pose and look at the camera. Step by step, steadfast and on the right slope. Latest pieces of her roster include this editorial above, from the last Mixte ever shot by Jacob Sutton (styled by Celestine Cooney) and another one in new issue of Elle UK by Thomas Nutzl. Talk about a new Luize wave. Editorial... [Lire la suite]

We Wait Six Years, We Wait Six Pages

Edita Vilkeviciute @ Viva (Paris, London), DNA (NY), Why Not (Milan) It’s thrilling to see her in Numéro  again and we won’t complain, honestly. She looks gorgeous, completely gorgeous and even beyond gorgeous. Let’s even say: as always. Edita Vilkeviciute is probably one of the most talented models of her generation and this is also why this editorial has something almost frustrating. The story is only six pages long, it’s never enough for a spread featuring Edita. We could also say it doesn’t go far enough, doesn’t... [Lire la suite]

Ravishing, Rastonishing, Rastovic

Aleksandra Rastovic @ Viva (Paris) She was our TMSRRE girl number twenty nine after having such a great season in Paris, leaving us with some unforgettable runway moments from Yves Saint Laurent to Issey Miyake including Dries Van Noten. You will never overlook her in backstages with her 5'11 silhouette, strong yet delicate gaze and expressions, iconic hairdo etc. Unique and out of the blue, exploring some sides of beauty that remained out of the beaten tracks until she hit paris again, last March. Everytime we can update on her... [Lire la suite]

Blessing in disguise

Elise Helene @ Viva (Paris) You never know what an event or simply a moment could bring to your life. You never expect it to be as harsh and you don't expect harshness to breed nice things. When words makes, when out of the blue truly means out of the blue. When a happy cell phone makes a happy evening. When a little drama turns out to be blessing in disguise. It's the same with editorials. You expect the best from big names, then get your lovely surprise from a pocket-size glossy. It's not the first time we're excited about... [Lire la suite]

TMSRRE part 29: Aleksandra

    Aleksandra Rastovic @ Viva (Paris) We might be really tired, it's not a mistake and even done on purpose. TMSRRE girls number twenty-eight and twenty-nine are sharing the same first name. Each her own way, though, as they have different stories and careers. And looks. Both did well this season and are worth a few lines. Aleksandra Rastovic would have been among our picks even without all the great shows she did, the simple fact we saw her walking on the runway or in backstage would have been enough. She has this kind of... [Lire la suite]
