Met Mavens

May 4th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The red carpet of the Met’s Costume Institute Gala is always a scene for fashion moments and mishaps, the attendees either look incredible or completely regrettable but no matter what the outfits are memorable. This year was no exception with scores of actors, models and fashionistas turning up in their sartorial best, but who won the evening when it came to style? Did Chanel Iman’s Kors jumpsuit look refreshingly modern, or overly glittery? Was Doutzen’s Zac Posen a little too prom queen for you, or was the look perfectly sweet? Was Sasha’s beige Marni the bomb or a total bust? Tell us who you think looked the best, or the worst and take a look at the roundup of chic model looks.

Classical Influence

April 9th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Meisel presents a classic view for Vogue Italia: the stylized portraits featured in April’s cover story seem timeless. Led by the iconic Amber Valletta and Angela Lindvall, models Joan Smalls, Lara Stone, Freja Beha Erichsen, Giedre Dukauskaite, Gwen Loos, Jac Jagaciak and Abbey Lee Kershaw, manage to look like true stars in the short and shrunken looks crafted by Karl Templer. The barely there ensembles, emphasize Spring’s focus on all things small, but the one of a kind hair creations courtesy of Guido Palau are larger than life.

Modeling news:
We talked about, LVMH’s new site, the Nowness. Here’s Guinevere Van Seenus for Rodarte, which premiered yesterday.

One of my personal FAVORITE models of all time: Renee Simonsen. Ford gives us an overview of her career and what she’s up to now!

Russian girls are always stunning. Check out this new young lady with Women Milan.

Jessica Stam and Agyness Deyn to design! 2 more model slashes!

Coco Rocha is engaged! Congrats!! And speaking of Coco, Fashion Week Daily takes to the streets to find out who/what people think a “Coco Rocha” is...

We agree with Jezebel, why are there blondes on these covers?

And yes, more models of color on the runway, please. 16% non-white is still not enough.

How cool are Greg Kessler‘s Model Morphosis for the NY Times?

The fashion industry is filled with people with unhealthy habits. For the young models who are struggling with their weight, please don’t ever let it get to this point (and if it does, get help).

Karen Elson is Fierce with a capital “F”. Gorgeous, funny, and talented? You’ve doing better than 90% of the TV/movie stars out there, Karen!

Another wonderful young lady that we adore, Agyness Deyn shows us another side to her multi faceted life.

Fashion and media:
Another reason we love Grace Coddington and Andre Leon Talley. They are old school with a capital O.

Guy Trebay, of the NY Times talks to WWD about the new media and bloggers. See what he thinks about Tavi and Bryanboy.

Miscellaneous:
Funny, funny post on Olivier Zahm by Frockwriter.

In the wake of Alexander McQueen‘s tragic death by suicide, it is really great to see the work Daniel “Harry Potter” Radcliffe is doing. If only more people in high profile industries would give back to the world like this….

Read photographer David Benjamin Sherry’s open and wonderfully refreshing interview on being gay and how photographer Collier Schorr was his professor!

Born In The U.S.A.

October 16th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The American wave has begun! Modeling is an international business – a great girl is just as likely to be from Sao Paulo as she is from St. Petersburg and scouts have always searched far and wide for the next major face. Sometimes though, the best girls are quite literally the ones next door. The American model is experiencing a very timely resurgence and many of this season’s top catwalkers hail from exotic locales like New Jersey, California and Texas.

Given the variety of cultural backgrounds in the states American models represent an especially diverse range of beauty but all are blessed with the same down to earth charm that makes them favorites. Take a look back at some of modeling’s most memorable pitchwomen – Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks, Carolyn Murphy, Bridget Hall, Hilary Rhoda – the list goes on and on, there is just something unique about the way the right American beauty can connect with an audience. Here are a few of this seasons much buzzed about newcomers whose personality and appeal make them the standouts of the new American wave.

hannahhhh

Hannah Holman

With her platinum tresses and icy blue eyes Hannah is the definition of a classic All American beauty (were seeing shades of Kate Bosworth) and fresh off the heels of her Miu Miu campaign she blazed through a selective season – only the best would do. Though she made appearances at nearly every European show worth talking about we couldn’t help but notice her turns at Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel – it seems a certain austere German fashion legend has taken note of Hannah’s considerable charms.

taytay

Taylor Kraemer

With her winsome look and impressive nearly 6ft height Taylor Kraemer is hard to miss. Blessed with warm brown eyes and beachy blonde hair she made a splash at Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs. The Cincinnati native has the personality and it factor to make a impact – don’t be surprised if you see her lovely face in a major campaign.

jacq

Jacquelyn Jablonski

So many shows, so little time – Top 10 Newcomer Jacquelyn was easily one of the most in demand girls walking this season. With a staggering 58 shows under her belt there was simply no stopping her. Something about Jacquelyn’s languid look resonated with casting directors and designers alike and she is quickly becoming a fan favorite too. The Jersey born beauty is sure to keep the momentum going with appearances in the most significant magazines and campaigns.

rel1

R’el Dade

As easily one of the most elegant faces to emerge this season R’el was poised for greatness. Her flawless proportions could be found on the runway of any designer looking for an added touch of class – note her refined presence at Dior and Giorgio Armani as well as a confident stroll down the catwalk for Hermes. The sophisticated Texan teen is also making her mark editorially with stories in Numero and an upcoming slate of work with a few choice photographers.

wixon

Lindsey Wixson

What more can be said about the 100% original California girl who snagged the opening slot at Prada and the closing spot at Miu Miu? The lovely Top 10 Newcomer is poised to have a bright future and with such a stellar season Lindsey, will be one of the most watched faces when it comes to campaigns.

lyndsey

Lyndsey Scott

Ever since she was discovered on Models.com and whisked away to a Calvin exclusive Lyndsey hasn’t missed a beat. Coming back stronger than ever this season with impressive showings at Vuitton, Prada and Gucci, her one of a kind look coupled with that ferocious walk have pushed her to the top of the list when it comes to fresh talent.

kekke

Keke Lindgard

This Hawaiian beauty’s impeccable season included Lanvin, Celine, Prada and Dolce – first rate bookings any girl but especially for someone so new. With a face that calls to mind the glowing beauty of Angela Lindvall and Bridget Hall Keke’s appeal is evident and sure to crossover into major editorial success.

The Sweet Escape

June 3rd, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Angela Lindvall shows British Vogue her private side in a very special portfolio.
