Bits & Bytes: Raquel by Ruth

July 28th, 2010 Posted by Betty comments (16)

Just a little bit obsessed with this video by Ruth Hogben for Showstudio, featuring Gareth Pugh F/W 10. Raquel Zimmermann shows why she is fast becoming legendary…

Fashion news:

Speaking of Showstudio, this is all part of 30 contributors each creating an exclusive film for the groundbreaking website. Expect Lady Gaga, Craig McDean and more.

Incredible that Stella McCartney is changing such an old British tradition! You go girl!

How gorgeous is Roberto Cavalli‘s 40th Anniversary book? Looks sumptuous…

We love Mary Howard‘s work for Meisel and Annie Leibovitz. Find out from about this one chair Mary used, that I will name “the supermodel”.


Leslie Sweeney, one of the founders of Art & Commerce is leaving A&C after 28 years. “Leslie was a founding partner of Art + Commerce in 1982 and virtually created the idea that agencies would represent stylists (and hair/makeup artists). During her career, she has shepherded the careers of industry defining artists such as Lori Goldstein, Brana Wolf, Camilla Nickerson, Orlando Pita and Gucci Westman.” Good luck Leslie!

Peter Arnell, the incredible advertising guru behind THAT iconic DKNY campaign, loses 256 pounds (there’s before and after pictures). Inspirational!

Modeling News:

New York Models is touring the US and looking for their next star

The cult of Kristen McMenamy continues. We love how 2 of the hottest faces in modeling right now are Kristen McMenamy and Freja Beha Erichsen, 2 very unconventional and non-cookie cutter beauties.

Some very handsome new American faces below. Left Erik from Next LA and Brandon from Chosen Management.

    I think you missed the point of the Arnell story by making it just about his weight, though it does catch your eyes.

    The choreography for the Showstudio was incredible to watch and Raquel executed it very well! I guess the ability to move well DOES translate in still photography. Now, I want to see more of Miss Z in film!

    Raquel Z rocks. Wow she’s an awesome mannequin and she’s not afraid to “go there” to give clothing a story, a life. Too cool. Way too cool.

  13. LD says:

    OMG, I’m speechless. Raquel blew me away!

    @BOO; Are you kidding me? Showstudio (Nick Knight) has been making fashion videos since Lady Gaga was probably still in highschool. Or at least when she was still rocking A&F.
