Alexander Wang is the new cool, but is also spearheading the new wave of building a prestige brand at affordable prices the Imagist reflects on it.

The secret is out, male models are a lot tougher than you think. Jacob Brown, from The Moment/NY Times writes about their “fight clubs” that are not fight clubs.

Sophie Srej blogs this week for her agency IMG. So many of the younger models don’t have a voice so it’s really sweet to read the thoughts of this young lady and see she’s like your everyday teenager who writes with run on sentences, smiley faces and lots of !!!!.

Wizard of Marc

Lindsey, Freja, Sophie…oh my. As Chadwick Tyler switches from photographer to director, he has chosen the ladies (and gentleman) of Marc Jacobs F/W10 to display a hidden talent behind a different kind of lens. On exclusive from Another magazine, the models are in the moment and in their Marc. We can’t get enough of our favorite pristine casting dancing across the screen – there’s no place like home.

Tim’s World

September 16th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

The macabre world created by director Tim Burton has always been a source of fashion inspiration – how many goth themed editorials have you seen that look like something straight out of A Nightmare Before Christmas – so its no surprise that on the eve of his retrospective at MOMA Bazaar pays tribute to his aesthetic with a fun filled editorial. Tim Walker shoots Malgosia Bela, Sophie Srej and Evelina Mambetova (talk about pitch perfect casting) alongside the director for the latest issue. Wearing fanciful creations from the likes of McQueen, Nina Ricci and Yamamoto the girls look ready for cameos in any of Burton’s films.
