The pictures show a side of the supermodel that is both demure and intensely sultry.

February 20th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

There is a little thing called a dream team – take one iconic designer, one bonafide supermodel and one of the best photographers working right now and what do you get? Another stunning editorial in Interview. Gisele Bundchen joins Craig McDean in paying tribute to the body conscious designs of Azzedine Alaia. While Alaia is known for the architectural perfection he brings to his work it doesn’t take much to make La Bundchen’s body look flawless.

The Exclusives (updated)

February 19th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

The industry always excitedly waits for the Calvin show as it never fails to debut some of the season’s most coveted faces.

The consistently powerful casting by Maida and Rami ushered in the arrival of 16 year old Louise from Belgium, winner of the Elite Model Look Europe 2008. Addison Gill, the Canadian winner of the V/Supreme model contest emerged in the stellar lineup and everyone finally undestood why she was curiously MIA this past week. Perhaps the most exciting exclusive was the 17 year old American, Lyndsey from Click Models, scoring the first Calvin show exclusive for a young woman of color. Lyndsey was found by Click on MDC’s scouting feature! 17 year old Canadian Bojana from IMG was a dark haired beauty, a welcome change from the blondes galore.

Some other tidbits from the Camilla Nickerson styled show.. Jac (MDC’s top F/W 09 newcomer) opened and closed Calvin; we can say Jac is officially cleaning up this fashion week. Other new faces appearing for their first time in Calvin were Hannah (another MDC top newcomer) and the new faces at Women Direct, Alla and Dorothea.

Allure knows beauty. This month Mario Testino takes two of the season’s most coveted (and stunning) faces – Sessilee Lopez and Edita Vilkeviciute and showcases their radiant beauty. Wearing softly colorful looks crafted by makeup artist Tom Pecheux both girls look glowing, fresh and ready for spring. The contrast between Sessilee’s edgy high fashion allure and Edita’s pristine prettiness makes for a truly memorable pairing.
