Spotlight On: Weir Diary

July 24th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Though he’s known for putting together some of the most flawless casts imaginable — see Viktor & Rolf‘s stunning lineup of top tier beauties, and the eclectic group of worldly gents he selected for Berluti – casting director Andrew Weir still finds time to capture the biz’s most beautiful faces in his candid blog, Weir Diary. Getting to the heart of his subjects with honest snapshots that capture them looking unguarded and beautiful, Weir has created an intimate look at fashion from an insider perspective.

And it begins…

Andrej Pejic by Andrew Weir for ACW.

Some of our favorite casting directors are in Europe and documenting their favorites. Andrew Weir’s Weir Diary has boy of the moment Andrej on it right now. Maurilio Carnino has some of his favorite faces as well on his MTC site.

F/W 11 began at Pitti Uomo in Florence. If you missed it, watch the Trussardi show on their website, in case you’re wondering who was that show opener, it’s the divine Rob Evans (screencapped above).

Take a peek at Dazed & Confused great backstage pics of the show, by Morgan O’Donovan.

Tommy Ton’s also there of course.

One of our favorite model agency bloggers is Ford NY’s Damien Neva who’s in Italy as we speak. Informative, witty, thoroughly detailed and timely, his blog posts are a pleasure. Expect more of his awesomeness from Europe.

Take a peek at Gareth Pugh’s F/W 11 Video by Ruth Hogben shown in Florence. MDC fave Natasa Vojnovic is her normal fierce self.

Bits & Bytes: Hanne on a Summery Day

May 21st, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Hanne by Andrew. On a lovely Friday in New York, Hanne stops by to see Andrew Weir for a casting.

————————————–

Photography news:

Unbelievable! David Bailey has worked with British Vogue for 50 years. See all the lovely ladies that came out to honor him. We salute you David!

Find out here about the Made in Brazil Magazine filled with some of the sexiest of male models of today (and where to order it). Part 2 is here. Get it, it’s a collector’s piece. We are announcing MODELS.com’s winners of the giveaways next week.

The Imagist has a fascinating interview with Hugh Lippe, definitely a young, talented photographer to watch.

Haiti is no longer so prevalent in the news but that doesn’t mean the Haitians need any less help. Look at these incredible images in a Art for Haiti auction that just began. Stam is in 2 of the shots; all the artwork is phenomenal and starting at outrageously affordable prices and for such a great cause; it’s a must see.

For those of you bemoaning the lack of naked women or breasts or just general salaciousness on Terry Richardson’s blog, don’t you fret… Andrew Richardson‘s Magazine is relaunching any day now. No, they are not related, except maybe metaphorically speaking in their obvious love for breasts.

If you’re in Paris, go check out the wonderful Ellen von Unwerth Cinema exhibition. (Till June 19th)

Not modeling related but how cool is Jed Root’s photographer Mary Ellen Matthews who is Saturday Night Live’s house photographer?

Fashion:

Why Riccardo Tisci matters. Here is Sans Artifice’s take on it.

If you missed it, Alber Elbaz, talks to Style.com in their Future of Fashion series.

OK. I finally get the hype about young Tavi now. Just read this post by her on the whole recent Terry kerfuffle and am blown away by the insightfulness of this 14 year old young lady.

Like 10 Magazine, we are obsessing over this bag. And damn you Tommy Ton for suddenly making us want all of these.

Katie Grand pens this moving tribute to industry powerhouse Katy Baggot who passed away so suddenly.

Anna Sui‘s book is coming out and we cannot wait! With an introduction by Steven Meisel, expect the book to have much fabulousness.

Anne Christensen rumored to fill the top slot at the New York Times’ T Magazine. We’ll let you know if it’s not true.

Modeling news:

From Marpessa to Carla Bruni to Mariacarla Boscono, former model turned agent to the superstars, Woman Milan’s Piero Piazzi is amazing. Read his interview and see a picture of him!

Talk about inspirational. Fernando Fernandes, you may remember got paralyzed from a car accident (see him here in the current Dolce Gabbana fragrance campaign) . He’s already in a new ad which just shot.

OK, this trailer made me cry. Incredible model/activist Liya Kebede, in Desert Flower, rocks my world portraying the incredible model/activist Waris Dirie.

Next in line to design is Irina Lazareanu, calling it Rini by Irina. She has phenomenal style though so it could be pretty darn good.

This just in. 9 Daughter & A Stereo, who repped some of the coolest, quirkiest boys around, is rumored to have closed. So sad if that’s true.

Coupling

April 21st, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Sebastian Faena presents an unexpectedly subdued story for VMan. Meghan Collison, Sean O’Pry, Siri Tollerod and Christian Brylle, cast by Andrew Weir, star as two well dressed couples in Faena’s 60s inspired studio edit. Both pairings are unexpected but work surprisingly well together – who knew Meghan and Sean would look so good together? Mattias Karlsson‘s impeccable styling keeps the couples coordinated and the sky high beehives by Holli Smith add to the retro feel.

Pic exclusive to MODELS.com by Andrew Weir for ACW.

You’ve already seen the striking images for the new Y-3 starring the iconic Yohji Yamamoto, world famous soccer star Zinedine Zidane and a host of beautiful models. Major Model Management, home of many a beautiful male face, scored quite a coup booking all the male models for the ad campaign. Here’s an exclusive pic backstage at the Y-3 men’s show 2 weeks ago in Paris (cast by Andrew Weir) of Zinedine with many of the most exciting men’s faces on the scene today.

The new beauty in the Boss ads (suddenly everywhere) is Chris Austad (Public Image Worldwide). Casting director Andrew Weir found the fresh face perfectly symmetrical in face and body and ideal for the crisp Boss image.
