Fashion does it Better


A Matter of Labels

Delphie What do you do when you have five minutes free while working on a Sunday ? Go to the bookshop at the train station and check out what new magazines they have in store. And as far as we remember, only French Elle and a couple more french glossies with no guarantee to find a nice one. Though, this week's Elle was pretty interesting (visually, as we haven't read one word yet). Most interesting part was probably their "new faces" topic, called "future top models". A bit awkward, of course, but always raising some interesting... [Lire la suite]

Summer Hit

            Johanna Kneppers, Claudia Seiler and Lys Inger @ d'management (Milan) We don't know if we should say it again as we can almost write it every month but Amica did it again. Could be our motto or the current status of FDIB's facebook page. But let's stay on topic and stick to the story itself, three girls from d'management shot by Massimo Pamparana for the newest issue of Amica. Italian magazine, italian photographer, italian agency and a very international casting that includes Johanna... [Lire la suite]

One more time

Alicia Kuczman @ One (NY) Heard of her complete domination over brazilian catwalks a few weeks ago (with Way Sao Paulo) but we must confess we hadn't followed previous fashion weeks (from Brazil to Couture via Berlin) very carefully. The big shock came with Michelle Lee's pola, actually. A simple shot with a yellow shade highlighting an incredible bone structure and translucent eyebrows. That was our first moment thinking of Alicia Kuczman as one of our favorite girls for Fall 2010. Didn't even know who signed her in NY (guessed who... [Lire la suite]

Luana Teifke @ Way (Brazil), One (NY) Crossroads. Between fashion weeks, first of all. Between projects, on a more personal note. Rio, Sao Paulo, Berlin and Menswear collections were the highlights of these last weeks and you know what ? We skipped them all, on different levels. Had no time, weren't in the mood and this trend here isn't going to slow down. Not that we're not interested in watching and analysing shows and their castings but rather that we'd like to cover less and picture more. If this makes sense. So, no Couture... [Lire la suite]

Bouncing Babies love White Chocolate

      Viviane Orth @ Way (Brazil), IMG (NY) We miss Riga, miss Vilnius but we're cheering up with some new pieces of brazilian beauty turned blonde while giving the last touch to our super Riga-special update to be released later today or tomorrow. Southern stunner just in time to forget how much we miss the North, Viviane Orth's new hairdo and unmistakable expressions seem to announce a new season which could be a new era if we think twice. Smart evolution, step by step, or bloody revolution... who knows how the... [Lire la suite]

She's Back (In Town/On Tracks)

Debora Muller @ One (NY) One was the first agency to lay the cards on the table and show both the expected assets and surprising wildcards. Among the second ones, you'll find no other than Debora Muller, the other Brazilian currently setting new standards at One. Coming from Way Models, Sao Paulo and writing her story her own way of course, Debora mixes a graceful silhouette with playful yet delicate poses with much talent and precision. Building her portfolio like a true piece of art. It's opening time right now - too early to... [Lire la suite]

All in One

        Janete Friedrich @ One (NY) Glossy hair, dark lipstick, leather jacket and tie. Catch the style and feel the distant fire. There is something serious about her look and it's quite a prowess in itslef as it takes to be a fabulous model to make orange hair look so serious. There is something distant in her expressions which makes them truly classy. And classic, somehow. We know it's probably the last word someone would have in mind regarding Janete's beauty type but we truly feel this classic vibe on her... [Lire la suite]

Time is on her side

        Janete Friedrich @ One (NY) Her first steps on the runway in NY was as an exclusive for Rad Hourani. Her first editorial out since that day includes the cover and is for the newest issue of Joy Quarterly. There's definitely something unusually unique (beautifully pleonastic) with Janete Friedrich who could also be the most intriguing and interesting girl both at her mother agency Way Models in Brazil and her home in NY - One Management. She poses in Prada on the cover and graces a few more pages inside,... [Lire la suite]

Timeless beauty just in time

Gracie @ Marilyn (NY) She's Gracie and she's graceful. She's Brazilian and she's in Brazil. Right now but you'll hear and see more of her soon. Sounds all so easy to tell and that's no wonder: she's so inspiring while words seems made to talk about her beauty. Already a regular cover-girl for L'Officiel Brazil and graced the pages of Vogue from the same country. Currently walking in Rio (with Way Models) - we've spotted her at a few great shows like Coven even if time was missing to review them all, good thing to put on our to-do... [Lire la suite]

Luana goes darker...

Luana Teifke @ Marilyn (NY) ... and we're getting more and more excited about her future. It's not that exclusive as you might have seen this polaroids sheet on COACD earlier today (or even yesterday, we discovered it this morning) but when we saw it again in our inbox we thought there was no other way than writing a few lines. Nine views in bright colors. The way she looks, the way she poses. And after being a subtle blonde with dark brows, she's now a delicate brunette. She's the same Luana, just a little different. When the... [Lire la suite]
