Bits & Bytes: Holiday Edition 2009

December 29th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

happy-holidays
In true holiday spirit, Art & Commerce makes a donation to City Harvest. Watercolor by the incomparable Mats Gustafson.

—————————————————————————————————————

Modeling news:
For those of you who have been away for the holidays on some tropical island and are not obsessively checking the Internet every single day….. Gisele Bundchen finally names her baby.

In other “unless you’ve been under a rock or on a tropical isle” news, Tyra Banks is ending her talk show.

British Vogue highlights their 23 models to watch for 2010. Some are familiar like former MOTW’s Stephanie Rad, Keats Kolyasnikova, Frida and Heidi Rock. We love the new Portia and several other new fabulous faces.

In the on going process of adding slash to their job descriptions, Erin Wasson is rumored to start acting and Noah Mills is ALREADY acting. For those who might remember, we tweeted back in Sept about who was the top model rumored to appear in the new SATC 2… From MOTW to SATC in a mere 7 years, you go Noah! In other former MOTW news, Dolce & Gabbana favorite Adam Senn is supposedly dating Lindsay Lohan. Do what you will with that info.

Speaking of model/slash, Hyoni Kang‘s new store gets a visit by Style.com.

Jezebel’s Jenna highlights the sad plight of the industry when the unbelievable Lara Stone is considered “fat”.

Oh too cute. Coco Rocha and a gaggle of 5 year olds visit her agency.

Fashion and photography:
So sad, amazing brand PHI (designed by the amazing Andreas Melbostad) closes

OMG. You thought Vinoodh Matadin was hot now? Look at this NSFW picture from 1986.

Only because Lady Gaga was THE fashion influence of the year, check out this one man’s obsessive creation of 39 of her looks on Barbie dolls. Kinda nuts in a totally fabulous way.

2009 Lists:
Fashion Week Daily‘s Chic citizens of 2009… Here’s numbers 6-10and 1-5.

Jezebel‘s top 10 fashion successes and failures of the year. They also have a pretty good list of their top models of the decade. We would have included Kate Moss who went from a mere supermodel to a model power broker with her recent deals with Topshop.

Contrast this with French Vogue’s 30 top models of the 00′s. All we can say is that of all the INCREDIBLE photos they’ve taken of Daria Werbowy (whose had 3 VP covers in the last year and a half), Anja Rubik, Gisele Bundchen and Lily Donaldson, they chose THOSE to represent these girls??? Congrats to Kasia Struss to making the list.. nice girls don’t always finish last!

Craig from Altamira who obsessively details the models’ streetstyle has some of his best dressed list of 2009.

Miscellaneous:
In the “I just get tired from reading this post” news, Derek Blasberg, just might be the hardest partying man of 2009. Check out these exclusive pics for V Magazine from Derek’s camera.

Some of our favorite agency Xmas emails: Luke Worral’s agents at D1 have Elfed themselves; this slightly creepy, culty video filled with boys and candles from the folks at Nine Daughters and a Stereo, the hilarious card below from the team at Ford NY‘s men’s division and the people at One Management who step in front of the camera for once.

To end the year, take a look at this gorgeous editorial, The 12 days of Christmas from American Vogue Dec 98 from the inimitable team of Steven Meisel and our favorite person in fashion,Grace Coddington.

Born In The U.S.A.

October 16th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The American wave has begun! Modeling is an international business – a great girl is just as likely to be from Sao Paulo as she is from St. Petersburg and scouts have always searched far and wide for the next major face. Sometimes though, the best girls are quite literally the ones next door. The American model is experiencing a very timely resurgence and many of this season’s top catwalkers hail from exotic locales like New Jersey, California and Texas.

Given the variety of cultural backgrounds in the states American models represent an especially diverse range of beauty but all are blessed with the same down to earth charm that makes them favorites. Take a look back at some of modeling’s most memorable pitchwomen – Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks, Carolyn Murphy, Bridget Hall, Hilary Rhoda – the list goes on and on, there is just something unique about the way the right American beauty can connect with an audience. Here are a few of this seasons much buzzed about newcomers whose personality and appeal make them the standouts of the new American wave.

hannahhhh

Hannah Holman

With her platinum tresses and icy blue eyes Hannah is the definition of a classic All American beauty (were seeing shades of Kate Bosworth) and fresh off the heels of her Miu Miu campaign she blazed through a selective season – only the best would do. Though she made appearances at nearly every European show worth talking about we couldn’t help but notice her turns at Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel – it seems a certain austere German fashion legend has taken note of Hannah’s considerable charms.

taytay

Taylor Kraemer

With her winsome look and impressive nearly 6ft height Taylor Kraemer is hard to miss. Blessed with warm brown eyes and beachy blonde hair she made a splash at Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs. The Cincinnati native has the personality and it factor to make a impact – don’t be surprised if you see her lovely face in a major campaign.

jacq

Jacquelyn Jablonski

So many shows, so little time – Top 10 Newcomer Jacquelyn was easily one of the most in demand girls walking this season. With a staggering 58 shows under her belt there was simply no stopping her. Something about Jacquelyn’s languid look resonated with casting directors and designers alike and she is quickly becoming a fan favorite too. The Jersey born beauty is sure to keep the momentum going with appearances in the most significant magazines and campaigns.

rel1

R’el Dade

As easily one of the most elegant faces to emerge this season R’el was poised for greatness. Her flawless proportions could be found on the runway of any designer looking for an added touch of class – note her refined presence at Dior and Giorgio Armani as well as a confident stroll down the catwalk for Hermes. The sophisticated Texan teen is also making her mark editorially with stories in Numero and an upcoming slate of work with a few choice photographers.

wixon

Lindsey Wixson

What more can be said about the 100% original California girl who snagged the opening slot at Prada and the closing spot at Miu Miu? The lovely Top 10 Newcomer is poised to have a bright future and with such a stellar season Lindsey, will be one of the most watched faces when it comes to campaigns.

lyndsey

Lyndsey Scott

Ever since she was discovered on Models.com and whisked away to a Calvin exclusive Lyndsey hasn’t missed a beat. Coming back stronger than ever this season with impressive showings at Vuitton, Prada and Gucci, her one of a kind look coupled with that ferocious walk have pushed her to the top of the list when it comes to fresh talent.

kekke

Keke Lindgard

This Hawaiian beauty’s impeccable season included Lanvin, Celine, Prada and Dolce – first rate bookings any girl but especially for someone so new. With a face that calls to mind the glowing beauty of Angela Lindvall and Bridget Hall Keke’s appeal is evident and sure to crossover into major editorial success.

Bits and Bytes: The Mystery Man

August 11th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

chrisduffy
The mysterious young man in the Just Cavalli ads with Kate Moss is none other than FM Agency‘s Chris Duffy. Though, used mainly here as a foil to Miss Moss’ larger than life presence, we feel this young British lad will be shining on his own in the coming months.

bb2
While our Ones2Watch section always has extraordinary new faces, today’s deserves a special mention. The Romanian Raisa and the German Daniel are most definitely ones to watch for the upcoming season.

Mario Testino and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, nuff said.

We love models that do a little something “extra.

In other Kate Moss news… if you haven’t already heard… Storm Model Management, her London agency, joins forces with Simon Fuller of American Idol fame.

If you look like Jamie Dornan, a tall drink of water if there ever was one, and live in Europe, you too could possibly be in the next Calvin Klein ads.

Did you know former Paris Vogue editor in chief Joan Juliet Buck was a child actor? We didn’t either.. She returns to the screen with Meryl Streep in Julie and Julia.

Bruce Weber fan? Check out the Sundance website for Bruce’s films and photos.

History Lesson: Ray Petri, one of the most influential stylists EVER, inspired a whole generation.

When artists become photographers, this is what happens… weirdly beautiful Matrix-y like images...
