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]

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]

Visuals

    Viivi Kapanen @ Brand (Finland) Deep analysis or short into ? Long and detailed portrait or quick overview ? For the first question the answer would be short intro then to the second we'd neither details nor overview. Just two polas to get the point and it took us time to get that idea. Her book is strong and sophisticated and we could have picked, very easily, a palette of pictures to give an idea of what Viivi's talents are like. But we went for another option, something more "visual" if this happens... [Lire la suite]

She's got the Look

        Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) We could write exactly the same as we did for Maaike, what haven't we said on Valerie that you'd need to know. Well, what you might be interested in right now is her brand new TopShop materials (make-up campaign), just released last week. For everything else, it's the same good old love for her look and modeling work. We didn't add her to the Muses section of the page for no reason and best is that we actually didn't wake up one day with that idea. She... [Lire la suite]

Doughty Dreamer

        Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) The weather is so nice and the atmosphere is so odd that we were just thinking about doing a post like "We Are Closed Until Next Week" when Valerie's latest materials (for designer Elliot Atkinson) arrived, with a theme that is the exact opposite of the mood here. Spooky, greyish black and white picture which immediately reminds you of fall and makes you feel like tomorrow is the 1st of September. The contrast is rather refreshing and redirects you to topics... [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]

Dear Dishevelled

        Katlin Aas @ EMA (Estonia), Marilyn (NY, Paris), Tess (London), Women (Milan) Dear Dishevelled Beautiful Girl on the silky paper of Dansk Magazine, we miss you a lot this season. Miss your look and your attitude on the catwalk. Miss your unusually beautiful features and unique face shape (and ears). Miss your crow-black hair and pale skin. But we're so happy to see you in Dansk, shot by Scott Trindle and styled by John McCarty. We will always remember you after Miu Miu near the métro station close to the... [Lire la suite]

Introducing Kadri

Kadri Nurmsoo @ EMA (Estonia), Women (Milan) We had an eye on the precious Estonian from EMA Model Management for a few months already, caught by her quiet yet powerful blue gaze and incredible bone structure: delicate nose, strong cheekbones and a lovely chin. Her height of 5'10"5 (179) and a leggy silhouette should also increase her chances to hit the runways soon. Kadri Nurmsoo hit Milan already and Women Management just had time to take new polas this morning while organising a couple of test shoots. From the land of Karmen... [Lire la suite]

Fighting for Class

Ilda Lindqvist @ Modellink (Sweden), Women (Milan) Surrealistic morning. These last two days have been more bizarre than crossing Latvia, Lithuania and Poland in a row. Snowstorms, frozen wind and so on. Couldn't recognize the place we live, couldn't anymore. Minus fifteen (Celsius, thankfully) makes you think it's Summer when it gets back to zero. Picking up our swimsuits and having a glimpse outside, in the snow. Crazy daisy. Though, today's first topic has nothing to do with snow, besides Ilda coming from Sweden of... [Lire la suite]

Express It

Kristina Vasilyeva @ Women (Milan) It. The little "it" that says a lot but remains hard to explain whatever happens. It, again. Kristina has it and, even more important, knows how to express "it". This unusual little thing that makes pictures look so good from every angle, this extra dose of expressive gazes and impish faces that makes our eyes shine again and our heart melt. Something we've felt before and we'll experience again but that seems so rare, everytime. So precious. Slightly off the poetry yet... [Lire la suite]
