Ellinore Erichsen and Donald Glover pair up for a melancholy take on young love shot by Ibra Ake for Models.com. Rising star Ellinore shares her thoughts on the shoot, her personal style and the perks of being a yoga practitioner.

Photographer: Ibra Ake for Models.com
Models: Ellinore Erichsen & Donald Glover
Clothing: Models’ Own
Production : Kristen Bolt & Kegan Webb

What was it like collaborating on this particular shoot?

Ellinore Erichsen: I know Ibra Ake the photographer from before. It’s a fun story actually, I got to know Donald’s band and Ibra in Paris ’12 when they were in town for a show. We’ve been hanging out since all over the world. With this story I think Ibra wanted to put two of his good friends together from two different worlds, to create something fun and different. I loved the idea and the shoot was very spontaneous. The result of the shoot turned out to be my all time favorite photographs of me!

What was the best part of the shoot for you?

EE: Now when I look back at it, it felt like we were shooting a film. Donald is a very talented actor and performer so I couldn’t really tell if he was himself or acting as a character for the camera and the story. Regardless, I was blown away by his charm and sharp tongue, his personality is very electric. The best part was simply to get to know Donald in person since I’ve spent quite some time with the people around him. After we wrapped up the shoot we ordered room service before it was time to leave for a secret intimate show for his fans in a private loft in TriBeCa. It was a memorable day!

Did you and Donald know each other before you did this story?

EE: We met briefly after a show in Australia over a year ago and just before the shoot I somehow ended up hanging out where he did a signing for his new album at a record store in Williamsburg. So I first got to see how he is with his fans, which was quite amazing! I couldn’t resist buying the record myself and getting it signed by him haha!

What do you enjoy doing when you’re off duty?

EE: I recently discovered yoga so I’ve been a devoted practitioner for a few months now. I also love running which is keeping me energized. Books always keeps me entertained, haunting for the big classics in archives around the world and of course, to read them!

Can you tell us a bit about your personal style

EE: I’ve always been attracted to a minimalistic style with the focus on shapes and lines. My wardrobe consists mostly black pieces with some exceptions of white and blue. I love old black and white films and photographs for the serious heaviness it brings, I’m drawn to the shadows and the depth. Fashion and art are inseparable for me and I guess that’s why I love the world of Acne Studios and their integration of the two.

Any exciting projects on the horizon – personal or related to work.

EE: I’m getting in shape for running a marathon in the near future and I’m about to finish up a class I took in Politics in the European Union. Getting an education class by class would be my most exciting personal project for now. When it comes to modeling I’ve discovered a new love for my job and I’m enjoying every bit of it. It’s definitely a life with quality and sense of freedom that not many people have the luxury to have. It’s very exciting to be on this journey right now!

KHAKI KISSES : The phrase “earth tones” gets redefined on the cover of Vogue Japan with Vanessa Axente sporting a curious khaki lip that stands in stark contrast to her fiery red Céline dress.

The adorable Esmerelda Seay Reynolds is a wide-eyed, platinum blonde beauty who has transfixed fashion’s inner circle. With Katie Grand, Marc Jacobs and Hedi Slimane in her corner Esmerelda has quietly achieved must-have status amongst top tier stylists, designers and influencers. This season the gamine beauty kicked things off with an appearance alongside Miley Cyrus in the new Marc Jacobs campaign and followed that up with struts for Anna Sui, Giles, Fendi, Moschino, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent. Editorially she’s already begun to make her presence felt – you can spy the dazzling Ms. Seay Reynolds in the new issues of Garage, i-D, Fat and LOVE.

As one of fashion month’s MVPs, new face Emma Waldo showed up on every casting director’s must-have list, and in turn, the very best of the season’s runways. Anyone who dared to ask where’s Waldo could be answered with a resounding reply: everywhere. Native New Yorker Emma had already made a splash at Calvin Klein, Proenza Schouler, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Jil Sander, and Prada, before breezing into Paris and landing most of the city’s key shows. At Celine, Chanel, Saint Laurent, and Miu Miu, Emma upped the ante and rounded out an exceptional few weeks.

When you mix girlish beauty with innate poise on the runway it makes for casting director catnip. Kate Grigorieva provided the double whammy this season and made her presence felt at a diverse mix of top tier shows. From sexy standards Gucci and Versace, to American classics Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan, even Parisian influencers like Celine, Isabel Marant and Givenchy were mad about Kate. With her timeless looks and ease in front of the camera (check her out in our Up & Comers feature for proof) Kate is sure to turn up in all the right campaigns and editorials too.

In the last edition of Memorable Moments we share the inside world of F/W 2014 by the runway favorites. See the previous MM here and here!

Sung Jin Park
HOMETOWN: Busan, South Korea
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Bottega Veneta, Diesel Black Gold, Dolce & Gabbana, Hermes, Kenneth Cole, Kenzo, Neil Barrett, Patrik Ervell, Public School, Vivienne Westwood, Z Zegna


MEMORABLE MOMENT: Fashion week is kind of a seasonal party to me. The designers put the nicest clothes on me and people photograph my looks. It says I can wear any kind of clothes and at the same time I get cool pictures as memories. I can show those to my wife and children in the future.”

Terence Telle
HOMETOWN: Paris, France
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: Emporio Armani, Giorgio Armani, Michael Bastian, Missoni, Versace


MEMORABLE MOMENT: The best moment this past fashion week was probably at Armani. Each year lots of models come to see Mr. Armani who does the casting. All of us wait in front of the big Armani gate and talk with each other: “Hey bro, wassup?” But as soon as the gate opens we aren’t bros anymore. Everybody fights. Your friends are now your enemies, and you now have to win the “Armani race” to get to the front of the line so you are not waiting for four hours. I ‘m never first in this race, but I did get picked for the show. Thank you Mr. Armani for believing in me and allowing me to walk in your wonderful show. Maybe next fashion week I’ll win the “Armani race” and get to walk in the show.

Nemanja Maksic
HOMETOWN: Donja Borina, Serbia
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: Dior, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana, Dries Van Noten, Ermenegildo Zegna, Iceberg, Neil Barrett, Opening Ceremony, Rag & Bone, Richard Chai, Tom Ford, Valentino, Z Zegna


MEMORABLE MOMENT: At the DKNY show I was standing in a line wearing this skirt. I’m talking with my friend, and I turned back to the cameras as I hear someone shouting, “I need to take a pic with this boy!” Coming toward me was a lady and she asks me to take a pic with her. I said, “No problem. Would be my pleasure.” Suddenly we’re surrounded by a crowd of people taking our picture. The lady asks me what my name is and I say Nemanja 3 times because my name is difficult to remember. “Donna, nice to meet you,” she says.

Paul Boche
HOMETOWN: Eisenach, Germany
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: Alexander McQueen, Corneliani, Dries Van Noten, Haider Ackermann, Maison Martin Margiela, Opening Ceremony, Rag & Bone, Rick Owens, Robert Geller, Roberto Cavalli


MEMORABLE MOMENT: Last season’s Dries Van Noten show was one of the most memorable moments for me. I am in love with his designs. Walking his show several times really gave me an understanding for his idea on men’s fashion, and in a way, it is thanks to Dries that I really started to believe in the art of fashion design. American jazz and rock drummer Cindy Blackman-Santana (Carlos Santana’s wife) played a 25-minute drum solo as the show went on. I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing, and all of a sudden became incredibly proud to be part of it!

Roberto Sipos
HOMETOWN: Bucharest, Romania
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: Corneliani, Duckie Brown, Issey Miyake, John Galliano, Kenneth Cole, Kenzo, Neil Barrett, Opening Ceremony, Ports 1961, Public School, Richard Chai, Tim Coppens


MEMORABLE MOMENT: My most memorable moment happened in Milan when Sarah and Andrew, my bookers from Soul Artist Management in NYC, called me and invited me to a big agency dinner with some of the other guys. Although I had been signed to Soul for about 6 months, this was my first time meeting Sarah and Andrew. During the dinner we started to talk about New York Fashion Week. I asked them if I was in the show package, and they said no. I’d never been to New York, and I told them I would like to come, so they agreed to make the necessary arrangements. Two weeks later I was in New York running around to castings in the snow. I had a great season in Europe, so I was curious to know how I would do in NYC. I wasn’t even supposed to come, and I ended up booking 18 shows and presentations here, which was an incredible feeling. I’ve also managed to find time to have fun too from hanging out in Times Square, to watching the street/subway performers, to cooking dinners in the apartment with my friends. A big thank you to everyone at Soul. I love it here.

Matthias Bex
HOMETOWN: Hasselt, Belgium
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: Dries Van Noten, Prada, Public School, Tim Coppens


MEMORABLE MOMENT: This was my first season, and it’s been great to meet so many new people from different places. The most beautiful place was Central Park; it’s so big! I like to go there to escape the busy city, even if only for a brief moment.

Tim Schuhmacher
HOMETOWN: Berlin, Germany
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: Acne, Billy Reid, Cerruti, Patrik Ervell, Prada, Richard Chai, Robert Geller, Tim Coppens, Y-3


MEMORABLE MOMENT: Working for Prada again was amazing! To see how they create their new collection and where they get their inspiration from is so interesting. I’m German and there was a lot of German inspiration this season like Pina Bausch. Also working for Dior and Calvin Klein was such an honor. And I will never forget the days of work and fun in L.A. and London.

Tommaso de Benedictis
HOMETOWN: Rome, Italy
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Cerruti, Dior, Dries Van Noten, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Neil Barrett, Opening Ceremony, Patrik Ervell, Topman, Valentino


MEMORABLE MOMENT: One of my most memorable moments took place at an experimental cocktail bar in NYC. We were having some drinks when I realized that Nicolas Jaar, my favourite DJ, was mixing music. I couldn’t believe it! Also the Gucci show was great. It really made me realize how fortunate I am.

One of the most striking trends to emerge recently is the use of gold to enhance features or to simply to create a bold metallic statement on eyes, lips and skin. From the dramatic gilded brows and lips at Dior’s SS14 show, to the subtle golden glaze models sported at Pucci’s fall show, makeup artists have embraced the look. Off the catwalk women have been playing with metallic textures for ages unleashing their creativity via an array of sparkling shadows, glosses and powders. Makeup artist Mary Irwin guides us through the gold rush and pushes the limits of the look on the beautiful Damaris Lewis.

If you don’t have gold leaf laying around, experimenting with the latest in metalicized lip colors can create just as enticing a look. “Gold is timeless” says makeup artist, Mary Irwin “the ancient Egyptians viewed it as the symbol of eternal life. From ancient Crete to the runways of today, gold has always been an essential part of fashion.”



A playful manicure is one of the simplest ways to take on the trend. For something as dynamic Damaris’ pointed bronze manicure above try Deborah Lippmann in Boom Boom Pow – golden glitter polish, or Swagga Like Us, a mirrored chrome color.



“A hint of gold is beautiful on all skin tones, from dark mahogany to translucent pale. It is a universal highlighter. Rose gold on cheeks is particularly flattering. Try Tarte Amazonian clay blush in Glisten.

You can do a quick 5 minute summer smokey eye using a brown pencil liner in the lash line and make up for ever gold aqua cream smudged all over the lid. Finish with a coat of black mascara – I love Make Up For Ever Smokey Extravagant Mascara.”



“When you think of summer and beautiful weather you think of bronze and gold – adding a sheer gold highlight over your foundation warms you up without making you look overly tanned.”
