Kudos to Givenchy for always introducing fantastic faces. Red Model Management lands 4 brand new models in S/S10, all walking exclusively in Paris. Jamil (the show opener), Henry Watkins, Abiah and Junior join the always captivating Dominique Hollington, now in his 3rd season for the brand. Request Model Management NY‘s Keith H and Edward joins Givenchy campaign face Manuel Ramos. CLICK debuts Emil (the show closer), Ryan Rocke and Jonathan Marquez.

This just in from photographer Doug Ordway: “I’m writing to you in regards to a rally for the return of Sean, David’s son. David is on old friend of mine, and a fantastic person! It will coincide with the meeting of Barack Obama & Pres. Lula of Brazil. There will be speeches by various senators & politicians and much media coverage. They are looking for the help of people in our business. There is a charter bus leaving Manhattan around 9:00 AM Saturday Morning, and will return right after the rally. LETS FILL THAT BUS!!”

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.

Garrett the body

July 15th, 2008 |Posted by Betty

Click’s Garrett Neff has some big shoes to fill. He’s the first model to appear in the iconic Calvin Klein underwear campaign, after the twice Oscar nominated actor, Djimon Hounsou lit up the billboards last year. Back in 1992, the Herb Ritts lensed campaign (for those of you too young to remember) helped launch the careers of Mark Wahlberg and Kate Moss. Bruce Weber, who shot the legendary pics with Tom Hintnaus more than 25 years ago shoots the current Garrett series. From what we’ve seen of Garrett backstage, we think he’s going to more than hold his own with those model giants.

Former Model of the Week Ubah Hassan is the latest member of the Meisel elite. She joins industry veterans like Iman and Alek Wek as part of the star studded July issue of Vogue Italia. Though Ubah is relatively new on the scene she holds her own with supermodels and legends. With her statuesque frame and elegant looks Ubah is sure to be among the coveted come September. Watch this face!
