Models come in waves. The Belgians, the Brazilians, the Russians Рeach group of girls embodying the style and attitude of a nation as well as the look of a specific fashion era. What signifies the current current chic? Vogue Paris is betting on the charms of the rising set of French models.

    Sigrid Agren’s career right now is super Hot. like she’s everywhere Hot!

  4. Model Whispers says:

    Ugh, I only love Sigrid from all of them. I dont know why. I guess I am more into Russians and such.

  5. Antonio Barros says:

    Vive la France!!!

  6. Michael says:

    I love that Charlotte Di Calypso is in the middle with Sigrid, it seems so prophetic a photo!

  7. HP says:

    Sigrid is half Swedish too…

  8. Klye says:

    Ambigous you are right! I forgot about that,Charlotte has been finishing school this whole time so seeing her everywhere now seems like her big debut, I love her!

  9. Ambigous says:

    Charlotte changed her name from Charlotte Beillard to Charlotte DiCaliypso….I think the latter sounds more exotic, don’t you think?

  10. ania says:

  11. Jacqui says:

    I want Morgane…:(

  12. tiger says:

    i am missing Paris beauty Heloise ??!!???

  13. JT says:

    Wow, Mathilde is so beautiful. I am hoping we’ll see more of her.

  14. K says:

    Is it just me or is there an invasion of Swedes as well? Julia Håfström, Sara Blomquist, Dorotea, Elsa Sylvan, Sigrid Ågren (half-Swedish), Hanna Rudlöf, and then all the guys on the male front… Jonathan Frenck, Mattias…

  15. Allison says:

    I absolutely love Charlotte.. She’s probably one of my favorite models currently, her eyes and face structure are amazing. This Mathilde girl is very interesting as well, very very pretty. And of course Sigrid is amazing, I haven’t seen many models even remotely as beautiful as her.

  16. MaoaM says:

    didnt you realize they always use to speak about french, belgian, brazilian or swedish invasion of models in high fashion.

    every invasion has his own nationality. but not so in case of eastern europe models.

    why not the russian, polish, czech, ukrainian or slovak invasion? why eastern european invasion, why not western european invasion?

    im not sure, why it is like that, perhaps eastern europe is for many americans and western european just an anonymous place in europe. or perhaps the high cheek bones, thin bone structure is common to eastern europeans, so thats why they are THE eastern european models.

    i know that i know anything, but i know something…

  17. Lilia says:

    doesn’t anyone think this looks just like the shot Meisel did of the models of the moment for Vogue US?

  18. Gustavo says:

    nice crop of girls!

  19. kim says:

    “I guess I am more into Russians and such.”

    I really want to comment on the above comment but I don’t want to be banned from this site so I will refrain.

    Variety is the spice of life. At least it is with mine, anyway. All of this is nice, but I’m hoping for more darker non-European skin tones. We haven’t seen any true, lasting variety with models since the supermodel era.

  20. Antoine Quoirez says:

    Constance Charlotte and Sigrid are definitely a throw back into real hot models. They are exactly what we expect of a model, being an exemple of a fresh and natural beauty.

  21. BB says:

    Mathilde seems really special. who is she with? there is something haunting in her eyes…

  22. Ambigous says:

    Rosie Huntington W. Amazing. http://www.Designscene.net

  23. Jill says:

    I love mathilde! she is such a beauty . Constance looks so cute in that photo too;

  24. JT says:

    Mathilde is with Next… new girl. Doing very well.

  25. brucegisele says:

    MATHILDE IS THE NEW… SIG IS THE FORCE, CONSTANCE IS THE BACK-UP FOR THE GIRLS CONTINUE, CARLOTTE IS RUNWWA ACE, JENNIFER& Mel are the editoral chicas……… go french girls!

  26. Ambigous says:

    Here’s Charlotte Di Calypso winning the title Elite Model Look 2005. She was known before as Charlotte Beillard…14 yr old Sigrid Agren was also in this competition and become one of the finalist.

  27. Drid says:

    What about the Dutch invasion, as in everlasting invasion that never goes away? There really are so many Dutch models.

  28. Mina says:

    Yay for us ze French! We can certainly be proud of these chicks.

  29. Anastasia Beverhausen says:

    Frenchie here but I have to second Drid;There seems to be an invasion of Dutch girls to the left and right. Weird that this small country produces all these amazons but nobody seems to notice this overall tendency; Lara. Kim. Bette, Ymre, Nimue, Gwen, Donna, Anna and now Ylonka. At least Vogue Paris got Lara right…

  30. metro_bicker says:

    vive la france !! lol
    i love this campaign

  31. dalens says:

    Morgan Dubled ?

  32. Hayley says:

    Yes but with a name like Constance Jablonski, she is likely of Polish, and not French, extraction. So, not necessarily a French invasion….
