The King & I

July 1st, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Teen Vogue is always one step ahead when it comes to casting and styling for the younger set. Case in point, this month’s issue features the delightful Addison Gill sporting an Elvis-inspired pompadour and high flying moves to match. Thomas Schenk captures the teen beauty as she glides across the screen with ease and Nancy Rohde provides fun fifties styling worthy of the King himself.

Eyes on the Prize

April 27th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

While it seems like just yesterday we met the impish Addison Gill, it’s already time for another round of the V Magazine modeling contest. This year V pairs up with Ford Models to seek out the total package – a girl with classic beauty, a winning personality and of course that intangible “it” factor.

We asked Ford’s Women’s Director, Caroline Poznanski: What do you think is the most exciting thing about doing a model search? Her answer? “The most exciting thing about a model search is discovering someone and seeing how she evolves from the time we first see her to 6 months later. Watching the changes the model goes through and how her book transforms is extremely rewarding. We’re excited to do this search for the first time with V, one of the most prestigious fashion magazines in the world.”

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.
