24 Hour Party People

June 8th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The nightlife scene of early 80s New York was a playground for club kids and jet setters alike and this month Steven Meisel recreates the fun for Vogue Italia. With Meghan Collison, Dorothea Barth Jorgensen, Julia Hafstrom, Nimue Smit, Lucas R, Sara Blomqvist, Marcel Castenmiller, Daniel Hicks & Anna de Rijk playing party goers and Karl Templer‘s authentic Reagan-era styling were in for a wonderfully retro ride. Granted, 1980s references have been done to death but there is something appealingly lighthearted about the youthful cast and their vibrant energy that enlivens every shot.

Bits and Bytes: New London

May 29th, 2009 |Posted by Betty


Dazed and Confused highlights their picks of the new crop of London boys in this video. Robbie Wadge (above pic), Daniel Hicks and former Model of the Weeks Isaac Carew and Gavin Jones all make an appearance. Just ignore the strange robotic voiceover.

—————————————————-

More tidbits from the September Issue. And it’s juicy. This is one fashion documentary we cannot wait for.

FYI, Mango replaces Penelope Cruz with Scarlett Johansson. At least in this case it’s a celebrity replacing a celebrity and not taking the few bookings left from the poor models!

Check out this half Japanese, half Italian male model from Brazil; we love how diverse and gorgeous the Brazilians are.

More sad recession news. Following on the heels of Christian Lacroix filing for bankruptcy is reports of Veronique Branquinho folding her  line.

Maybe this will stay the heavy hand of the fashion retouchers (see Gwyneth Paltrow’s different jawlines in the link).

If you haven’t seen it already, Forbes has their list of new top earning models!

Miuccia Prada, the reluctant fashionista, gives her first interview in 3 years.

Frances Grill, founder of Click Models and discoverer of Uma Thurman and Whitney Houston, talks about her years in the business.

There’s a new rock-n-roll kid in town and Production is into him.

Check out the models and stars on Burberry’s night. See Helena Christensen, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Molly Sims.

Gisele Bundchen‘s in Versace for F/W 09. By Mario Testino. Against a wall. Again.

The Ones2Watch has 2 especially gorgeous newcomers: Moldova’s Xenia (just signed with IMG) and Rami from Argentina.

D1’s Daniel

July 23rd, 2008 |Posted by Betty

The Sartorialist mentioned recently about taking a timeless picture where you won’t be able to tell in 50 years, when an image was shot. We feel a little like that about Daniel Hicks, an 18 year old from Manchester (Agyness Dean’s hometown) who we can’t believe wasn’t transported through a time machine from the 80’s! What is it about the Mancunians and their efforlessly cool factor?
