Young Love

August 27th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (49)

We love when magazines debut fresh talent so Vogue Australia‘s October issue is a special treat. Fresh face Codie Young snags adorable floral cover by Nicole Bentley, but eagle-eyed model fans may remember her from a 50s themed editorial by Derek Henderson inside September’s issue. The pink floral cover is a refreshingly girly choice for fall and Codie’s doll like features remind us of the incredible babyfaced Aussie sensations to debut in previous years; Abbey, Gemma, Miranda, the list goes on. Could Codie be the girl to watch come S/S 11? Let us know what you think!

    I love her eyeys ! :D
    and the cover is VERY FRESH!!
    its simple but very chic looking

  2. Colten says:

    Her eyes are incredible, the cover shot is phenomenal!

  3. JChen says:

    Just a question: so when Australian magazines showcase fall/winter clothes it’s actually summer down there?

  4. Bree says:

    I don’t like her look. She is very pretty, but slightly boring and alien-looking.
    I wish the modeling industry would return to more classic beauties like Daria or Anna J, instead of churning out look-alikes every season.

  5. Janelle says:

    @JChen, I am not sure actually. Maybe one of our great Aussie readers could help us out with this question! I think it is summer there, but I’m sure someone else can provide a much more definitive answer!

  6. Liv says:

    The cover was shot by Nicole Bentley and that 50’s story by Henderson was actually in the September issue. :)

  7. marsko says:

    Before Abbey there is,was GEMMA, corect your writting…How can you put Abbey in front of Gemma? Who to this date my oppinion noone can rip her off,nomatter she is fat or slim… She is genius of a generation!!!
    And regarding this story its riped of from Krisy and Stroukos Vogue Italia May 2010…
    I wish the originality,real romance, to be back in editorials…

  8. Janelle says:

    RE: How can I put Abbey in front of Gemma.

    Well since I put them in alphabetical order…

    RE: Liv

    Thanks so much for the photographer information, really appreciate it!

  9. marsko says:

    YOUKNOW, I GROW UP WITH GEMMA! AND THE EVOLUTION OF HER CARRIER!!…MANY WILL FIND IN THIS STORY AS WELL… SAD THE EVOLUTIO, SEEING YOUR FAVORITE MODEL, DEVELOP EVERY SEASON, IS GONE…
    SO HOW ABOUT NEXT TIME PUT EACH MODELS CARRIER IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER???
    SHE IS GENIOUS OF A GENERATION…
    PITY I HAVE NO IDEA WHO IS YOUR BOSS TO GIVE HIM A CALL..YOUR WRITTING IS DISAPOINTING!!!

  10. marsko says:

    PS YOU FORGOT TO MENTION CATHERINE MCNEIL…
    MODELS.COM USED TO BE SO COOL… SO SAD
    PUTING A PERSON WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE TO WRITE ABOUT MODELS…

  11. Janelle says:

    I think your caps lock key is broken…
    Don’t worry about my “carrier” I’m sure I’ll be ok.

    Also, what part of Catherine McNeil registers as “babyfaced”, her look has nothing to do with the girls mentioned.

    But what do I know, I’m not a “genious”

  12. Emily says:

    marsko, Miranda debuted before Gemma and Abbey and she was put last. It’s not a big deal. The article isn’t even about them, so she wasn’t trying to mention every Australian model ever and her individual impact on the industry.

  13. Inna says:

    What does this even have to do with Gemma? She was mentioned once in passing along with other girls. The era of Gemma is over and people need to just deal with it already. She quit modeling and is living her life happily. She wasn’t that serious, there were like 10 girls with that same look who all came out around the same time. How is she a genius? Did she cure cancer or something?

    Codie is fresh, she is her own person, there are so many fabulous new girls this season, people need to stop living in the past already.

  14. Milly says:

    Did someone forget to refill their valium prescription?

    Codie is a force to be reckoned with.

  15. Liv says:

    It’s quite a beautiful cover. I like Codie and I hope the local hype won’t make people tired of her before she even hits the big scene. Let’s face it, no one cares about Vogue Australia (as a tastemaker), yet I see headlines about Codie being the next Gemma. I mean, come on… I like how they tend to be very supportive of their models down under, but sometimes the hype isn’t exactly rooted in reality. And it won’t help the girl.

  16. Marcus says:

    wow, Codie Young has a unique look. Can’t wait to see more of her in the future.

  17. MissB says:

    She is gorgeous.

  18. Josh says:

    I am a sucker for flowers, so the cover won me over, but I am tired of seeing those Miu Miu dresses everywhere.

  19. IS THIS IT? models review says:

    Codie has such a particular and magnetic charm… and here she shows part of her very interesting potential. Not mad about the cover, but the editorial seems as simple as pretty good for sure.

  20. Marty says:

    Jchen: Yes its truning summer in south america and south africa austrial and ect.

  21. anlabe says:

    Her eyes are killing me. So damn pretty.

  22. HannaV says:

    I loved all the photos, but on the cover she looks scared

  23. Charlotte says:

    Codie is great! Looking forward to seeing what she does!

    Also, why are people so mean in their comments? If you don’t have something nice (or relevant) to say, don’t say it at all! Especially if it’s misspelled!

  24. Dom says:

    That damn Miu Miu dress is everywhere! Who’s paying these editors to put it on every cover? Oh, and we already are seeing the October cover of Vogue Australia, but still no VI cover?

  25. Dom says:

    VI cover for September, that is.

  26. qwerty says:

    on the cover she looks like a lily d/anna j hybrid

    gorgeous eyes.

  27. Mathew says:

    I agree with some of you about the same clothes being in EVERYTHING! I loved them at first, but I am getting quite sick of seeing Miu Miu, Prada and Vuitton in every editorial. The Sept Issue of American Vogue was a Louis Vuitton frenzy!! And that yellow Miu Miu dress with the neck bow…I’m over it and it’s not even october yet.

    @Janelle: You are the best. I love reading models.com not only for the great insight, but the hilarious comebacks you have for dumb readers. You make me laugh out loud at my computer desk. Please keep being awesome.

  28. Chris says:

    This girl is perfect, just look at her eyes, unbelevable!! so glad to see new faces every season… I bet aussies are very proud of their fresh beauties, no?

  29. Nigel S. says:

    Janelle.. you’re seriously rockin’ right about now…rockin!! Love it.

    And I am loving this cover. Flowers do it for me too. The Miu Miu dress is perhaps a bit used at this point but it does look pretty lovely here. It’s like the macrame/ lace dress from Prada F/W 08 (apperently Luca Luca was a couple of years to early to enjoy the love of such a look) Alas Prada’s was much sexier.

    The other photos are quite lovely also though they beckon for the presence of Georgina Stojilkovic – especially the 3rd image.

  30. Josh says:

    @ marsko- I love it when people like you say the stupidest things, then get completely torn apart afterwards. If you are going to argue, don’t sound like Forrest Gump in the process.

  31. Josh says:

    @ Janelle- Guuurl!! You told him/her what it IS!!!!

  32. GP says:

    She looks fresh but a bit freaky on the cover.
    Many Australia magazines like Vogue and Bazaar showcase A/W collection in summer or S/S collection in winter here just to follow the interenational trends.

    The international big designer brand like Prada, Gucci and Vuitton are selling the current season in Australia like now is Winter collection even Australia is hitting Spring in few days.The other brands like French Connection, Armani Exchange and Nine West are selling the last seasons (S/S collection) in summer in Australia.WE are actually buting sale iterms (in overseas) with full-price.

  33. Arimbi says:

    That Marsko thing (yeah I called you a thing since I don’t know if you’re a man or woman or even a human LOL!) needs to extreemly chill out. Girl, you even got a few wrong spell words, don’t even try to fix someone’s article then.

  34. KS says:

    LONGEVITY is approaching this girl..

  35. Josh says:

    @ Arimbi- I have a feeling Marsko is a catty queen

  36. Eamon says:

    Her face shape reminds me of Turlington, but with Gemma eyes. Who cares. Go Codie!

  37. lafashionelle says:

    love her eyes too! great concept! plus, loved her hairdo!

  38. MODELS AND STYLE says:

    I looove the cover , it looks pretty and fresh! But she is kinda boring maybe not strong enough for the runway… we will see, she is cute anyway :)

  39. Nádia says:

    WOW! She’s new to me! She really pulls it off! So expressive!

  40. Podestá says:

    It’s winter in Australia, like in Brazil. Spring is coming next month!

  41. anonym says:

    she looks like eminem XD

  42. Antonio Barros says:
  43. Irene says:

    I’m jealous of her face!

  44. anon says:

    i think Codie is beautiful in every way possible
    and i don’t see how people can criticise anything about her

    if half these people had made it to the COVER of vogue australia i would like to see you looking as beautiful as she does

    dont bring other people down when they get somewhere great

  45. fashion_nerd says:

    she’s weriedly attractive! i’m drawn to her yet i’m a hater when come to ‘alien’ look models lol i think she’s got much more high fashion potential than those few Aussies, except Abby she rocks :) hope Codie (what a weridly cute name ^^) can do well! excuse my terrible spelling.. @@~

  46. pony says:

    SHE CAPTURES MY ATTENTION

  47. Anon says:

    this girl is amazing, I really think she signals a new wave in the types of models we will be seeing in the coming seasons. She’s definitely a stayer.

  48. Courtney says:

    It is a lovely fresh cover for the Australian Spring – it’s not Autumn (fall) here till March! I predict that Codie will continue to rise and have an amazing career.

  49. SUDHEIR says:
