Marija/DNA Ph Craig McDean for W Jan 04
It seems there are two front-runners in the New Faces Of The Season S/S 04 sweepstakes. Last season the spots were swept by Daria/IMG and Julia/Supreme. This time former MOTW Rianne/Elite, and Marija/DNA look set to clinch their places. Marija after the coup of her Gucci/YSL show exclusives nabs two lead stories, one in January’s W with Craig McDean and the other in January’s Harper’s Bazaar. Add to that Marija’s upcoming SS/04 YSL ad (shared with Julia/Supreme) and her Dolce Y Gabbana fragrance ad lensed by Meisel and what you have is the girl most wanted….
In other campaign news IMG hottie Diana Dondoe is quite the Parisienne this season with campaigns for Celine and Balenciaga (a repeat appearance). To Kate Moss‘ Chanel and LV score add Missoni and Burberry (Burberry also stars Stella Tennant/DNA). For the record Natalia/DNA is the featured model in the upcoming CK Jeans ad, alongside Dasha/Marilyn and Tatiana/DNA . Nailing the very competitive booking on that newly coined Calvin Klein line is Amber/DNA. The only sure thing on the Prada booking right now seems to be Daria/IMG repeating her exclusive from last season. She’ll be joined by several other models but we’ll consider it a confirmation when the pictures goes to the printers. Looking very impressive for IMG right this minute is Jessica Stam who in addition to her currently running Dolce gig, now adds Ungaro to her roster.
