Julian Schneyder by Betty Sze for models.com

Sometimes a new model arrives on the scene and it’s immediately apparent that they have that something special. Such is the case for the charming young Austrian Julian Schneyder, featured on models.com’s MOTW back in February, and appearing as one of the newest faces in the always extravagant Dsquared2 campaign for fall/winter 2015. We catch up with Julian about the campaign, being a judo champion and best of all, get him to do a backflip for us!

How were you discovered and where are you from?
I come from the beautiful city of Vienna in Austria. A friend of mine took some digitals of me and sent them to my mother agent Kosmas Pavlos at Wiener Models. They called me in for an interview and I was signed right away. Now they placed me with Jason Kanner at Soul Artist Management so here I am.

You are a champion of judo; can you tell us when you started?
I started at the age of 6 and I have been practicing Judo ever since… 12 years already..

What level are you and what tournaments have you’ve won?
I wear the black belt of course :) My biggest success so far are the bronze medal at the European Youth Olympic Games and the bronze medal at the European Championships.

How many hours do you spend doing judo per day?
I train 2 times a day; in the morning and in the afternoon except weekends when I usually go to tournaments .. so my life really is about JUDO.

How do you think being a martial arts practitioner makes modeling easy for you?
Judo does not only train the body it trains your mind as well… you set goals and you achieve them.. you fight for them very concentrated and that is something which I think can help me in my career as a model as well. It also helps me stay fit all the time.. I have 3% body fat :).

What was it like working with Dan & Dean Caten for the Dsquared2 campaign? What were some memorable moments on set with Mert and Marcus?
It was overwhelming! I am new to the modeling scene and everybody was telling me how important this booking was… so I was very nervous when I flew to London. In the studio I met everybody and saw how professional they are … how creative and dedicated and I felt really comfortable and at home. I didn’t want the shooting to be over and everybody was so nice and kind to me! I remember Dean & Dan giving me the nickname: D2 Bambi. Mert & Marcus were just incredible to watch them work and create their magic! I definitely want to work with them again!

Which animal did you prefer on the set, the bird or the wolf?
Both are such beautiful animals. I have never seen a Wolf or an Eagle in real life so they were both extremely fascinating.. I would say the Eagle earned my respect! Magnificent creature!!

Favorite thing about NYC so far?
I have been here only 6 days… have not seen so much .. I would say the tall buildings! I am a simple boy from Austria.. you can’t really imagine how breathtaking this view is for me..

What do you miss about home?
My friends and my family :)

Are there any modeling jobs that you think would also be cool to get?
There are so many… Versace, Calvin Klein, Givenchy? It’s a big Wish List :))

Drawings by Langley Fox

Langley Fox is the chiseled-cheek, quick-witted creative with a twinkle in her eye , tattoos all over (13 at last count), and a penchant for posing. Her surname is cemented in the American literary canon as one of the greatest – Hemingway. Daughter of Mariel, sister of Dree, Langley’s family line is full of talent without debate. Still, the Idaho-raised, L.A. girl has been able to transcend her predecessors and create an artistic lane all for herself – whether in front of the camera or shading slender limbs.

“I just started doing illustrations and modeling,” the newly blonde stunner explained in our busy office on a Thursday afternoon (she quickly is going back to brunette). “They kind of go hand-in-hand for some reason. I’ve been lucky enough to have collaborations with brands like Forever 21 to Sportmax where I get my designs featured on the clothing.” Add collaborations with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Pamela Love, and Alice + Olivia and you’ll see she’s far from a newbie in the game as far as drawings are concerned.

Crows

Her entry into the fashion world was far less glamorous than simply being scouted on the street. “I went to school at OTIS in L.A. and then Parsons for fashion design and I just kind of realized that I liked drawing at home by myself.” Those hyper-realistic, pencil drawings created in solitude quickly lead to the interest by some globally recognizable brands. Modeling came soon after with the encouragement of her family and catwalk jaunts for Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Giles and Louis Vuitton followed.

The millennial-slash juggler (model/illustrator/fashion design enthusiast) has a positive mindset of easily going back and forth between her love of drawing and bringing them to life. “I would love to do fashion design. I think it’s either doing it on my own or finding the appropriate collaboration and being hands on in it. I think it would be important to make it something that I really want instead of settling. The future is so big and I have so much time.”

LongArrow

Her personal style is what you can describe as – quirky. Embroidered jackets, green felt pants, and rainbow socks are all loves of hers and she’s far from shy when expressing it. “I think I treat most days like Halloween. I’m pretty sure I dressed like a mime last night unintentionally!” giving us all a laugh. She captivates the attention of all with her charming nature and intelligent thoughts on the mood of the fashion industry. “I think fashion gets a little heavy and a little caught up in itself. It’s great to meet new people and have a career in it and if I can swing my art into modeling then I think it’s wonderful.” An it-girl by today’s standards, the craftiness of Fox is sure to leave its mark on the fashion world one way or the other.

With couture season at a close, we’re taking a look back at all the bold beauty looks that hit the runway. From the paired-down, strobing at Viktor & Rolf to the maximalist, rouge pouts at Ulyana Sergeenko to the fairyland, beach waves at Versace there’s been a little bit of something for any beauty lover.


Alexis Mabille
Alexis Mabille celebrated his muses of all ages and sizes in wares that glorified femininity and individual beauty looks that brought out the inner beauty of each model.

Alexandre Vauthier
Sex appeal reigned clear for Alexandre Vauthier and the beauty looks created by Christelle Cocquet & Akki Shirakawa mirrored the mood with copper, heavy-lined eyes and windswept, sultry hair.

Armani Prive
Armani Prive was all about Avatar technicolor, iridescent coloring of pinks, greens, blues, and purples for their Fall couture collection and the beauty team of Roberta Bellazzi and Linda Cantello paired short, dark pixie wigs with smoky gray eyes and fuchsia lips.

Atelier Versace
Donatella Versace normally goes for a rock-and-roll smoky eye but this season’s Versace couture show was surprisingly lighter with shimmering mint eyeshadows and leaf-adorned wavy crowns courtesy of beauty magicians Guido Palau & Pat McGrath.

Chanel
Chanel had sharply cut “wig hats” made by Sam McKnight that accentuated the heavily blushed cheekbones of his girls. Add dramatic brows and matte colored lips in warm, reddish tones courtesy of Tom Pecheux and you had a strong beauty showing.

Christian Dior
Peach-stained, glistening eyes and lips bedecked the Dior woman on the couture runway with super natural, slightly rippling hair. The pure looks created by Guido Palau and Peter Philips fitted perfectly with the dramatic silhouettes of the designs.

Elie Saab
Pure glamour is the essence of Elie Saab and the couturier brought that vision to the beauty looks with gilded cat-eyes and loose romantic waves courtesy of Tom Pecheux that complemented all those crystals and feathers.

Giambattista Valli
Orange sherbet was the hue added to many models hair by hair master Eugene Souleiman for the Giambattista Valli couture show with perfect skin, top lined eyes, & glossy lips perfected by Val Garland to accentuate the buggy, mod sunglasses.

Jean Paul Gaultier
Breton strips were reinterpreted on the eyes with cobalt eyeliner graphically applied. Messy waves under chapeaus and half-done fishtails were the go-to hairstyles for the show.

Maison Martin Margiela
Each beauty look created by Eugene Souleiman & Pat McGrath was abstractly tailored to each model and the results achieved were artistically maximalist with purposefully seen bobby pins, geometrically painted face masks, and blue paint applied to eyes, lips, and sometimes half the face.

Schiaparelli
With a new designer at the helm, Schiaparelli beauty took a turn with delicately knotted chignons and surreal headpieces, matched with sky-blue, unlined eyes and salmon glossed lips.

Ulyana Sergeenko
For Ulyana Sergeenko’s couture presentation, models either had intricately woven, messy updos or nape chignons adorned with crystal hair nets. Heavily dark dusted lids and red stained lips complemented the looks.

Viktor & Rolf
Beauty was held back with clean skin and center-parted, sleek hair for the extreme couture presentation from Viktor & Rolf which had models literally coming out of the canvas.
