Bambi Northwood Blyth by Annie Wilshaw.

We (as well as almost every fashion person we know) are obsessed about models, Polaroids and Polaroids of models. In a special piece for TheOnes2Watch, Annie from Premier Model Management talks about how she started and hands over her trove of beauties to the O2W. Take a peek on O2W and choose your favorite.

Bits & Bytes Special Model Edition:

There may be no other male model search as successful as the VMan/Ford collaboration (take a look at what the past winners have been doing). Their new search has begun and the winner gets a shoot with the incredible Steven Klein, styled by Nicola Formichetti. We just might be a tad jealous. (Search ends March 1st)

Perry Ellis‘s February show needs one more hot male model and wants YOU the audience to choose him. Check out Andre Douglas, Seth Kuhlman and more of the hot 9.

Lancome signs Arlenis

September 5th, 2008 |Posted by Betty

From WWD: “Lancome has added an up-and-comer to its stable of spokesmodels: Arlenis Sosa, a 19-year-old former student discovered in her home country of the Dominican Republic this past April.

“Arlenis possesses beauty, intelligence, charm and compassion,” said Odile Roujol, president of Lancôme. “All of our brand ambassadors share these attributes, so we knew she would be a wonderful addition. We are very proud to welcome her to the Lancôme family.”

Sosa was discovered on her way to a college class by a designer, who sent a shot of her to Marilyn Agency’s Peter Cedeño. She arrived in the U.S. this spring, and signed with the Marilyn Agency.

From young supermodel to girlfriend of the stars to crooner to current title as chic-est President’s wife in the world; Carla Bruni has (in the words of the old Virginia Slims ads) indeed come a long way, baby. The current British Vogue documents pictorially the transformation. Witness Carla with fellow supermodels, Milla Jovovich (pre Resident Evil days), Helena Christensen and Nadja Auermann
