Fashion does it Better


Taste The Difference

  Aymeline Valade @ Women Direct (NY), Women (Paris & Milan), FM (London) We know it's a pretty subjective notion and everyone may have his own point but let's leave aside the old syrupy melody of beauty being in the eye of the beholder (broken record somehow, isn't it?). Let's focus on the obvious and forget about the obnoxious politiquement correct as it's quite rare and happened twice in two different situations: Aymeline Valade outperforming her partners in editorials. Strictly speaking, full stop. Or to say it in a more... [Lire la suite]

Direct Woman (Extended Version)

          Aymeline Valade @ Women Direct (NY), Women (Paris & Milan), FM (London) Back from casting nonsenses and so-called arty fashionable videos that would make you love a full afternoon of watching all Walt Disney's classics in a row, back from seeing the ugliest covers ever that we won't name and back from having a quick look at the worst caricature of this business ever. It's like we went to hell and back and even if we haven't reached heaven yet, having the new issue of Numéro is already relieving... [Lire la suite]

Halfway To Your Paradise

      Aymeline Valade @ Women Direct (NY), Women (Paris, Milan), FM (London) Whiskey memories out of the beaten tracks and roses in the snow... our daily life in a few words these last few weeks. Heading to unknown places with cheerful feelings of known directions with new moods, the future of FDIB is made of flowers still to blossom. And that's how it goes for the future of modeling too. Who's going to be noticed next, who's going to leave a durable impression after four weeks of shows and so on. Better not think and... [Lire la suite]

Get and Do Not Forget

        Isabelle Sauer @ Modelwerk (Hamburg) Hello! Do not think we've been sleeping again even if FDIB looked a bit asleep for the last ten days. But that was July, we're in August already. Changing minds, changing moods, taking time to make this right. And looking forward to feeling new thrills come September. Basic story yet we didn't experience it in a basic way, well that's for later and let's just focus on our first girl of August: Ms. Isabelle Sauer from Modelwerk, Germany. That's already a long story... [Lire la suite]

That Bregje Girl

        Bregje Heinen @ Micha (The Netherlands), Women (Paris, Milan), Women Direct (NY) Memories from last seasons: one image in mind -- Bregje leaving the tent in the Jardin des Tuileries -- and one sentence -- "it's incredible, this girl works everyday", pronounced by a booker from another agency than hers. Good memories, then, good season for her as well. And Bregje seems to be unable to hang out after such a good international starts. Both runways and glossy pages can't get enough of her and this months she's... [Lire la suite]

Upside-Down (Balenciaga-Blogging)

  Mirte Maas, Patrica Van Der Vliet and Alla Kostromicheva @ Union (London) Union Models is blogging too and if you didn't know about it, take a look and the first of entries of years on their blog. First topics are indeed worth to remember as they are dedicated to the agency's brightest stars: Mirte Maas (also with Women), Alla Kostromicheva (also with Women Direct) and Patricia Van Der Vliet (also with New York Models and Nathalie). Such a gorgeous team... who achieved some big things on glossy paper these day,... [Lire la suite]

Waking Up in a New Dimension

Alina Jukova @ Image Discovery (Ukraine) Remember Alina ? The girl scouted by Image Discovery in Ukraine with these beautiful and delicate features ? If yes, we've got some news for you. If no, it's never too late to meet her now. First is discovery then development and this is what it's all about for Alina now, currently under development at Women Direct in Milan, proving again she literally shines in front of the camera. And, as we're going further in the exploration of her potential, we're also aware now of how expressive... [Lire la suite]

TMSRRE part 11: Aymeline

        Aymeline Valade @ Women Direct (NY), Women (Milan), Women (Paris) We were already impressed by polas and prints, she suddenly caught our eyes again. Walking for Elise Overland first. Then again on last days of New York shows as look number two at Threeasfour, one of the collection that left a mark in our minds from there this season. Presence on the runway, attitude backstage and true talent for editorials are often a formula that works well. Anytime. And for a timeless beauty like Aymeline, this should... [Lire la suite]

TMSRRE part 10: Katya

    Katya Kulyzhka @ Women Direct (NY), Women (Milan) Here comes Katya, as promised. One of the newcomers we've been watching relentlessly all the week as the Ukrainian was having her first season ever in New York. Youthful features and a lot of energy quickly became her trademark on runway, poise and playful expressions didn't remain unnoticed as well. Remarkable at United Bamboo, working out the silky headscarf as if she were born with it (her eyes got even more prominent that way and the sweet yet fierce gaze of hers... [Lire la suite]

Cocteau Twig

Julia Kosheleva @ LMA (Russia) What a short hairdo can do for you ? Not much if you don't have Julia's face, poise and presence. Half joking. If a hairdo can change you a lot, Julia Kosheleva's appeal goes far beyond the original haircut. In the vein of LMA's unique faces, with that uncanny beauty as a trademark (otherwordly, right ?) and beyond amazing attitude in front of the camera, our 18-years-old girl has even more treasures than her pictures would tell. Her look is one in a million, her height peaks at 5'11 (180) and...... [Lire la suite]
