Weird Beauty

November 9th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Emma Summerton‘s vision of beauty for Vogue Italia is dark, modern and played out on the faces of fashion’s most original new girls. Melodie Dagault, Janete Friedrich, Hanna Rundolf and Alexa Yudina stars in a story that takes an unusual approach to beauty constructs and winds up seeming more goth than glam, Mathias van Hooff‘s otherwordly makeup and Patti Wilson‘s avant garde styling to create a look that is offbeat but lovely.

From a distance Ross Tanner exudes tough guy appeal- tattoos cover his chest and arms, the word swim inked across his knuckles. But underneath the t-shirt, Alice Dellal‘s partner in crime has an unassuming intensity which delivers a boyish charm to his body of work. Coupled with a lanky frame and green eyes, this professional BMX biker comme model has just signed with NEXT London’s new men’s division and is a surefire bet to add street cred to any shoot. MDC spends 90 seconds with the young Brit.

1. How have you seen street art influence fashion and vice versa? Is there a new respect among the fashion community for these forms of once underground means of expression?
With the notoriously hyped Banksy expressing his politics and culture through all cities, fashion was sure to follow with graphic t shirt designs. Since street art has become more of an integral part of youth culture, kids have jumped on these influences and trends.

2. Does being a BMX biker influence the way you move in front of the camera?
No, not at all.

3- What are some things you’ve learned about the fashion industry that you never would have known before?
Money is thrown about in fashion; I never imagined that you could make this type of cash in a day.

The Select

February 12th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Select Model Management is having a moment. With the market cornered on cool London youth the agency lands 6 of the month’s most talked about covers. First Pixie Geldof lands front and center on the cover of Vogue Italia in perhaps the most inadvertently controversial cover so far this year, then Ash Stymest and Eliza Cummins double team for Dazed and Confused. Punk princess Alice Dellal adds her edge to i-D, sharing space with the ‘so hot right now’ Eliza and Daisy Lowe and the eternally iconic Stella Tennant. Last but certainly not least, who lands in said i-D but one of our favorite 80’s mannequins, Jeny Howarth, looking as legendary as ever.

Cool Britannia!

February 10th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Modelizers, brace yourselves, i-D is hitting newsstands with not one, not two but 12 incredible covers dedicated to the best British models. By now we all know that Brit girls are among the coolest in the industry and each cover taps into the dynamic personality of its star. Legends like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Twiggy,  Stella Tennant, Susie Bick and Yasmin LeBon share space with au courant faves like Lily Donaldson, Agyness Deyn and Jourdan Dunn. The London It-girls are in full effect too with Alice Dellal, Daisy Lowe and newcomer Eliza Cummins (fresh from her turn in Dazed & Confused) all snagging covers. Long live the queens!
