SEPTEMBER'S CHILD

On August 7th we blurbed the impending return of the modeling legend known as Bridget Hall. After weeks of frenzied speculation, MODELS.com is pleased to confirm Hall does indeed have the September cover of American Vogue.

In that issue she is featured in three editorials: an Only Girl story by Steven Meisel, a shoot with Raymond Meier, and a fashion feature by Steven Klein. Add to that Hall's Only Girl story by David Sims in Harper's Bazaar, her Italian Glamour cover shot by Fabio Chizzola and a forthcoming story in Numero by Thomas Schenck and what you have is one of the most emphatic comebacks seen in years.

Given that Hall has only been on the cover of American Vogue once before, in 1994 where she shared the billing with Nikki Taylor and Brandi Quinones, it begs the question, what has fueled this timely rise. Was it that prescient bob done by hair master, Ward that endeared Hall to Vogue? Watch these pages very closely for the first glimpse of Vogue's September cover.

MAN OF THE MINUTE

He was the toast of the last Milan Men's Show (and it's assorted after-parties). He is the current apple of Donatella Versace's and Steven Meisel's collective eye, headlining both the Versace Jeans Couture and the Versace Collections campaign. And of course there was last season's Gucci campaign with Mario Testino, all culminating to make Ford's Lucas Babin, without question fashion's most fetishized male model right this minute. Look for his sculpted features to surface in the pages of the required style bibles come September.

MODO MODE

It looks like a cyborg beetle mated with an alien beeper, but in actuality this strange little tech thing called Modo is quickly becoming the cult item of the summer amongst fashion's junior set. The wireless hand-held guide is designed to help that style obsessed young urbanite find just the right restaurant, club or boutique. Come September, (just in time for NY Fahion Week), Modo promises to lead you to the best that New York, San Fransisco and Los Angeles has to offer. But can you imagine the possibilities for the up-to-the minute low down on all the right parties to crash. Now that would be vital technology right there.
