TMSRRE part 27: Elise Helene

          Elise Helene @ Viva (Paris) Nobody else deserves a post here and now as much as Elise Helene. Among our review (just below) on Viva-girls from QVEST last sunday and Lexposed Face today, we can't find enough way to say how much her recent success on Paris catwalks is important. We've seen her first steps last season, it was an immediate crush at AF Vandevorst - we were tired, it was the last show of the day and suddenly both the casting and soundtrack were amazing, giving us a second kick. Such... [Lire la suite]

The taste of Cherry Chapstick

  Laura Blokhina @ Viva (Paris), Viva (London), Why Not (Milan), DNA (NY) She didn't break record this season on the runway but she's safe and steady in her editorial career. Safe ? Rather say daring as her work is often tongue-in-cheek and visually striking. As her latest piece in current Mixte by Txema Yeste, style by Francesco Sourigues. Seems the mag likes her and even more. Actually to book her once for an editorial is to love her and magazines remain faithful to Laura, issue after issue. That's no wonder when... [Lire la suite]

Never say never: Casting at Viva

Laura Blokhina @ Viva We picked Laura as our first face from the ten Viva girls featured in newest issue of QVEST magazine. For two reason. First her pose looked perfect to open the series, then we'll have a complete feature dedicated to her very soon (again, for various reason that don't always sound obvious but stay tuned). Shot by Aitken Jolly and styled by Sam Ranger, it's another delightful story from one of our favorite magazines. As it's an absolute must buy and we don't want to kill the thrill too early, we didn't scan and... [Lire la suite]

Paris Part Two!

  Anastasia Krivosheeva @ Women (Paris), Masha Kirsanova @ Viva (Paris) Second day report. Third day about to start. In thirty minutes we'll be at the other side of the town, attending Atsuro Tayama. Don't know who to expect there. Usually a safe casting with nice surprises. We'll tell you. Then in the next hours will be Issey Miyake, Gaspard Yurkievich and Christian Dior. Dior sounds exciting of course but we're even more excited about Yurkievich, the show you can't miss today if you're looking for new faces on the catwalk.... [Lire la suite]

TMSRRE part 11: Anna

  Anna De Rijk @ Viva (London) Last december we had a sudden peak of love for Anna brought by some awesome memories of her from backstage at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris and an editorial by Jonathan Leder published in A4. Now she's giving a complete image of what her potential looks like walking for the best designers in London. With a list including Topshop Unique, Armand Basi One, Margaret Howell and Ann-Sofie Back, no one can deny British catwalks love her. And we just hope it won't stop her (at least it seems London...

Three dots making the world go round

      Anna De Rijk @ Paparazzi (Amsterdam), Women (Milan), Viva (Paris), Viva (London), DNA (NY) We will never forget her from backstage almost one year ago. Was during Couture fashion week in Paris, Ecole des Beaux-Arts. The show was Gardem and it was quite a great opportunity to meet with new girls that have been blossoming step by step since that moment. In Anna's case it spells Elle US earlier this year and right now A4 shot by Jonathan Leder. We're still waiting for it to be release here but the preview is simply... [Lire la suite]

Numéro girl Number seven

Ali Michael @ DNA (NY), Viva (Paris), Viva (London) Ali's eye-brows went notorious in less time than you would need to think about it. Sure, they might be her most eye-catching feature and a part of what makes her often very expressive in her editorials. Her work with Paolo Roversi is a perfect example. Though, our favorite part of her book so far could be her collaborations with some of our beloved photographers like Vanina Sorrenti (for Numéro Tokyo) and especially KT Auleta (for both i-D and Vogue Russia). Ali went through... [Lire la suite]

Riding on jelly swans

Zuzana Gregorova @ Viva (Paris), Viva (London) Fever and strange dreams, walking in a fantastic novel across jelly swans swimming by as the river flows. Sounds like a dream and was a dream. Well, it's already said above and clearly seems to have nothing to do with Zuzana. Or better say Zuzana brought us back to reality and kept us away for early-wintertime days nailed to bed waiting for the fever - and the swans - to go away. Delirious. A quick walk on a cold wednesday afternoon. A warm bookshop full of newly released magazines,... [Lire la suite]

The story of the stunner

Anastasia Savicheva @ Viva (Paris) Her look might ring a bell if you see her new tests but you can also take her as just the freshest addition at Viva. Anyway she's a stunner and needs no other introduction to be loved. She's a cutie with the right sense of drama. She's a model. Or let's say she's this kind of girls that makes the whole definition of model. Inspiring. The one you want to picture, you want to capture her beauty. The face who can tell you a story on eight fashion pages in magazine. The stunner. There's no story... [Lire la suite]

Une jeune fille en fleur (Edita's blossoming)

Edita Vilkeviciute @ Viva (Paris) From her very first editorial for Vogue Italia's model supplement to her most recent editorials, we've been following Edita step by step, and almost saw her climax in Paris s/s 08 live - from MiuMiu to Vuitton the last sunday of the fashion week. It was the exact moment we discovered the secret behind the incredible rise of one our (numerous...) lithuanian favorites: beyond the subtle image of both classic vibe and unique features, we've seen the energy. Fresh and friendly, amazing every second.... [Lire la suite]
