Fashion does it Better

Instill

      Melodie @ Wilhelmina (NY) and Anais @ Ford (NY) Sometimes you say too much, sometimes not enough. Same here, sometimes we write too much and sometimes words are simply lacking. Words are friends some days and enemies the next morning and all this vicious circle makes hard to find the right balance. Trying to, though and we guess it happens we work it out. Drop by drop, fighting sleepless nights and meaningless dreams with the best sides of our imagination, maybe that's where the path starts and it's up to us to... [Lire la suite]

Do Not Know, Do Not Care

        Hanna Samokhina @ Wilhelmina (NY) Do not know, do not care. What tomorrow will be but always eager to be the day after. Time goes by so slowly on one side and too fast when you think of the next deadlines in your life. Making decisions is never an easy task, it takes some extra strength and clear goals in mind to make the most important ones. As nothing is ever granted, you always get to cope with unexpected parameters and hopefully good surprises as well. Talking about good surprises, Hanna's performance... [Lire la suite]

Enough Is Never Enough

      Melodie Monrose @ Wilhelmina (NY) We already talked about this topic a few days ago, the meaning of 'doing well' in modeling during a show season and if it's still difficult to find a proper universal answer, there still might be some individual definitions for these words. Obvious and natural, and models who perfectly embody such a definition. You can certainly count Melodie Monrose among them, as the young lady just finished a fabulous season launched by Wilhelmina in New York last month (Marc Jacobs, Max... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Wilhelmina S/S 2011 on Digital Diamonds

Watching show packages popping up and by is a night-time obsession these days as each agency is currently releasing its own show team for Spring Summer 2011. From aesthetic statements to innovative concepts, from signature styles to visual revolutions, from crazy moods to classy minimalism: this season doesn't lack creativity in New York and actually has been rising non stop over the last few years. Sometimes with the risk of seeing the packaging overshadow the proposals, the concept steal the first role to the contents. It's a... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Marike by Beau Grealy

Marike Le Roux @ Wilhelmina (NY) Long time we haven't officially bookmarked any blog piece on FDIB but truth is we rely a lot more on our second page, J'avoue J'aime for this kind of entries (faster and right to the point). But this occasion seemed made for FDIB as both Marike Le Roux and Beau Grealy were already featured here and when one of our favorite model works with one of our favorite photographer, it's tough not to mention it here. The story comes from Italian Flair, May 2010 issue and was spotted on Wilhelmina's blog... [Lire la suite]

Undercover / On the Cover

  Marike Le Roux @ Wilhelmina (NY) The magazine is French and usually easy to get for us but, this time, got the tip from New York. Go figure, Paris might consider we are already Germany here. Or were we so overbooked we overlooked this ? No time for dilemmas and drama, let's just go to the point: Marike's cover and editorial on/in the new issue of Stiletto. Marike slightly hiding under her top hat but full force glowing on from the front page till the end of her story. Here is a little medley of the pages that gave us the good... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Kristiina Wilson's Notpolas from today

Lucia Jonova and Julija Steponaviciute @ IMG (NY), Lela and Nathaline Marchett @ Wilhelmina (NY) It's quite showtime and we have to love polaroids and snapshots right now. Can't escape, can't run away from it. Though if castings for the shows are getting full-force coverage everywhere, the last set of polas that caught our eyes are actually for a magazine, taken by photographer Kristiina Wilson. The notpolas as she call them herself are lovely rectangles with wooden background and pale light that literally bites and ates the model... [Lire la suite]

Your good taste might help

    Gigi and Irena @ Wilhelmina (NY) Bradford Gregory is one of our favorite from the new generation of photographers in NY and a regularly featured artist on FDIB. Sounds good, so far. But even the most talented people can experience some tough moments. As Bradford says himself, what happened sounds totally crazy but happened. "I was robbed at gunpoint by 3 guys" were the first words to catch our attention reading his mail and we started get quite worried. "It was insane!  Fortunately I came out... [Lire la suite]

Vibrant

    Marike Le Roux @ Wilhelmina (NY) and Alana Zimmer @ Supreme (NY) Wasn't planned! But we couldn't resist. First, the colorful visuals were perfect to balance and then, Rykiel's red looked awesome with our new layout. Perfect day, isn't it ? If we want to look at the new campaign through the artist's eye, we'd say the atmosphere (warm night at the end of Summer ? Twilight in September) just enhance the vivid colors again while the two faces of Sonia Rykiel Spring 2010 are a perfect match as well. Timeless features,... [Lire la suite]

The Keke-Effect

  Keke @ Wilhelmina (NY) Time to have another look at Keke, Wilhelmina's girl who caught the fashion girl by storm this season. After some sensational debuts in New York at the beginning of the month, she keeps the level sky high in Milan (with Elite) adding a few of the most coveted shows on her booking-list. We were first informed that she walked Prada at the end of last week. We were also told we should better wait till the end to drop a few more lines. For obvious reasons. What will be will be and Keke walked another bunch... [Lire la suite]
