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.

Power Couple

Mikael Jansson takes things to the next level for Interview magazine. The iconic photog enlists platinum blonde stunners Lara Stone and Dennis Johnson to convey the dynamism of the season’s swimwear. Lara is known for her tough chic allure but it’s Dennis who nearly steals the show with his steely gaze – both Stone and Johnston put their athleticism on display as they battle for dominance.
