Arriving this week is the amazing Arthur Sales from Recife, Brazil. Made in Brazil’s Juliano who has been tracking him since Arthur walked the DSquared show back in June, calls him one of the best Brazilian kids in a long time. Onset he is apparently like Caroline Trentini reincarnated as a guy. For more pics, click here. (with Elite Milan)

Dynamic duo: Marc Jacobs and Juergen Teller; Interview reviews the Marc Jacobs advertising book and for more Juergen fans, Cathyn Horyn talks to Juergen Teller.

Watch Karl Lagerfeld shoot Baptiste Giabiconi for Purple Fashion, with a giraffe and what looks like his cell phone. See some of his editorial here.

More Baptiste news, Naomi Campbell is envious of him!!

Here’s video of Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman from the i-D shoot. They talk about the pressures of being an ethnic model in this industry. The video is amazing, watch the girls work it, i-D’s signature winks and all, while Edward Enninful talks about the beauties.

More MTA’s (model turned actor). This time, it’s a male model, Trevor Donovan, who has shot D&G with Steven Klein and A&F with Bruce Weber and is on the next 90210.

WWD calls it the return of the “himbo” but mistakenly calls it a Numero shoot by Karl Lagerfeld, when it REALLY should be Lara Stone and the boys’ DSquared campaign by Mert and Marcus… Hmph, if they need help with boys they can certainly call us.. We know all the top males there is to know.

Supreme’s showcards reverberate down in Australia.

Mariano Vivanco shoots Megan Fox for Wonderland Magazine. She’s one of the few actresses that look like they could have been a model, especially in this moody shoot. See pics and behind the scenes video.

September’s Vogue Italia editorial by Steven Meisel has re-energized and re-invigorated me in a way that no editorial has done in a long time. The messiness, the fun, the contorted faces, the in your face energy is completely exuberant and what we need during these dour times. Vive la revolution!
For the entire ed, scanned by the lovely Diciassette, see Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

Ymre and Sigrid for Prada

September 23rd, 2008 |Posted by Janelle

The Prada catwalk is renowned for being a launch pad for future legends – this season the opening and closing spots were filled by bright stars brimming with potential. Elite Milan’s Ymre Stiekema and Sigrid Agren opened and closed respectively at Miuccia’s Spring showing and both beauties captured the ethereal yet classic feel of the collection perfectly.

For those anxiously awaiting the arrival of Anna Selezneva in NY on the heels of her September Paris Vogue cover; her absence at any shows was an obvious marker that the powers that be had whisked her away for that coveted Calvin exclusive. What’s also exciting is the frenzy that surrounds the new girls that debut for Calvin in NY. Ladies, get ready for Europe!

Some pols and video on the new girls!
