Fashion news:

A lot of you may know Dusan Reljin‘s name from his wonderful work as a photographer. But did you know he just designed a sunglasses collection for Selima; featured here on Style.com.

Anna Dello Russo is the best! See Anna’s life story in Japanese manga format. I still can’t decide 100% if it is really her blog but it’s so over the top, it probably is.

This incredible fashion shoot by Simon Procter for Vs Magazine is given some good lovin’ by Sans Artifice.

Photography news:

Mert & Marcus‘ ex assistant chats to Love Magazine. Besides being talented; Angelo Pennetta is very, very funny.

The next photographer duo? The German duo of Billy und Hells are worth a look.

Miscellaneous:

Many of you know that Tara Subkoff is recovering from brain cancer. Read her interview with Harper’s Bazaar about her journey.

I’ve met Justin Gelband and he most definitely is intense. I see why Victoria’s Secret stars and Sports Illustrated beauties go to him to be trained.

I loved American Elle growing up in the 80′s. It was joyful, inclusive and still aspirational. Jezebel compares the 1986 May issue with this month’s issue.

Did Anna Wintour really have a brief affair with Bob Marley in the 70′s? Oh Anna you naughty girl, you.

You gotta love Jezebel playing detective. Is Kimora Lee Simmons head really on Daria Werbowy’s body?

Modeling news:

Ohhhh yeaaaahhh! It’s about time. Models edge out celebrities for fashion ads. WWD lists some of the major houses for fall.

Models Myf Shepherd (who is in art school) and Rachel Rutt are doing anonymous interviews with fashion insiders for MUTT; should be quite interesting.

Casting director Julia Samersova talks to MSN about the new faces of tomorrow (including Estee Lauder faces Liu and Constance).

Love Magazine takes a “boob break” and has casting director Michelle Lee pick her favorite new “androgynous” girls.

Speaking of boobs, here are Jonathan Leder’s pics/video of his new work for Jacques. His work always seem tasteful and respectful to women; some consider him the anti Terry.

Hmmm, what are those birds diving towards? Click here to see more polaroids of great new face Johannes Niermann. Johannes walked Burberry, Zegna, Prada and Viktor & Rolf this past January.

Modeling News:
MTC Casting celebrates diversity on the runway with the new crop of Asian girls. We love it.

If you haven’t seen the new sensual film by Bruce Weber for YSL with Simon Nessman, Paolo Anchisi, Terron Wood and Josh Yajcaji, here it is on VGL. (Definitely NSFW)

Interview Magazine catches up Bronx boy and Marc by Marc model, Yuri Pleskun.

Rodarte hasEthan James Green on their minds (and shirt).

Ralph Lauren helps Haiti with a special shirt worn by Pierre Woods. If there’s every a time, fashion could help, it would be now.

Fans of Belgium model Cesar Casier: he has a blog with a darn witty name.

Eniko Mihalik, our former MOTW, is featured in W’s “This Week’s Model”. We love her.

Man eye candy (mandy?) for the day: Made in Brazil’s Speedo boy on video. Speaking of beautiful Brazilian boys here’s a whole bunch at 40 Graus by Didio.

If you missed the lovely Frida Gustavsson on Ponyryder, read about the Swedish stunner here.

Fashion and Photography News:

Like Interview and Style.com, we are OBSESSED with JPG’s couture collection, this dress and this girl.

Saverio Cardia who did the fabulous special project on 20 of the top male models, is interviewed by the Fucked Up Crew in Milan.

One photographer interviews another. Lope Navo interviews Arnaldo Anaya Lucca, one of Ralph Lauren’s favorite photographers. Fascinating story of how Arnaldo got to where he is now.

We love Armani Exchange‘s share the love campaign.. So inclusive and so HOT.

Miscellaneous:

Yes Marie-Amelie Sauve is genius… Sans Artifice agrees too.

Here’s a link to Golden Globe winner, Mo’Nique who dedicates her award to victims of child abuse. “”The number of victims who never reveal their secret or who wait many years to do so is very high. This is regrettable because the longer they wait to reveal the abuse, the harder and more enduring the consequences will be.”
