The Argentinian Wave

March 12th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Models come in waves – the Brazilians, the Russians, the Belgians – all legendary groups of girls who made an impact: based on F/W 2010’s castings, Argentinian models seem poised to take over. Argentine beauties like Flo Gennaro and Milagros Schmoll have been on the runways for years but in the past couple of seasons a new generation has risen to prominence, here is a who’s who of the Argentinian models who ruled F/W.

Dafne Cejas – Worldwide exclusive at Givenchy, not to mention a couture edit in Vogue Italia – the perfect way to kickstart a career.


Carla Gebhart – From Prada to YSL, Carla was at absolutely every blue chip show in Europe, no wonder she attained top 10 Newcomer status.


Tatiana Cotliar – After opening Marc Jacobs Tati became the season’s most in demand girl, her spitfire personality and impressive walk kept clients clamoring for more. Keep an eye out for her come campaign season!


Tetyana Melnychuk – As one of the stars of NY and London, Tetyana racked up mileage at shows like Rodarte,Y-3 and Proenza Shouler.


Antonella Graef – Already a favorite of Riccardo Tisci, Antonella had another strong season with an opening slot at Rodarte, as well as an incredible debut for Versace.

The Look of Day 1

February 12th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

New York fashion week has just kicked off but already there have been some truly imaginative things sent down the runways. We’ve been keeping track of our favorites from day one and here are a few little things that stood out to us.


Vena Cava
never fails to deliver a strong collection, this season their 70s inspired look had a laid back yet luxe feel just felt right. The grey leather jacket on Flo Gennaro, looks like a must have – especially when paired with a LBD and fishnets, something about the way Flo carried off this simple combination makes it all look effortless. Those quirky little sunglasses don’t hurt either.


On the beauty side we couldn’t help but be impressed by the spiked nails at Cushnie et Ochs: we thought we had seen it all when it comes to nail adornment but these took things to the next level. Even If barbed nails aren’t your thing, the soft makeup on all the girls, especially the lovely Anya Kazakova. Check out the subtle smoky purple – love it.
