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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

24K KISS

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.”


_E9O8430new-final

GOLDFINGERS

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.


_E9O8568final

SHIMMERING SKIN + SMOLDERING EYES

“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.”


_E9O8854final

THE SHINING

“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.”

Elegant, androgynous and capable of pulling off any look Helena Severin represents the kind of austere beauty favored by fashion’s upper echelon. With appearances at Prada, Dries van Noten, Giles, Saint Laurent Paris, Celine, Louis Vuitton and the closing spot at Miu Miu Helena managed a filler-free season that was top tier from start to finish. As one of Europe’s most sought after new faces Helena’s momentum seems sure to propel her towards a key booking come campaign season.

Amanda Murphy gets blushed backstage at Jason Wu

There was a note of refinement running through Jason Wu‘s fall collection and that sophisticated ease carried over into the show’s beauty look. The A-List team of Diane Kendal and Odile Gilbert (Exposure NY) created a look designed to reflect Wu’s tailored runway pieces and the clean, pared down look that has dominated the last few seasons. Kendal began with a thick brow – not unlike the kind favored by models off duty – the thinnest smudge of eyeliner to enhance the natural shape, followed by a creamy selection of browns, roses and pale shimmering pinks. Despite the array of products used the final effect was a study in simplicity and the perfect compliment to Gilbert’s sweeping slightly undone updos.

With her soulful eyes and graceful demeanor, Ukranian beauty Iana Godnia was a refreshing presence on fall’s catwalks. The former Model of the Week‘s season kicked into high gear with an exclusive appearance on the runway for Calvin Klein in New York then continued to excite with turns at Burberry, Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta. While her all around show list was exceptional Paris provided Iana with several key moments at the week’s biggest shows – Céline, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, Hermes and more.

MEMORABLE MOMENT: Ever since I became a model I’ve been collecting a lot of memorable moments all over the world. Yet the biggest one was when I met my wife Jess in Japan, and it all led to the birth of our handsome son Milo. Now we’ve been working and enjoying our lives in harmony with our little one.

MEMORABLE MOMENT: I don’t have just one memory. I really like to have fun with the photographers that ask to take my picture when I am leaving a show. I also have a lot of fun with my good friend Dennis Van Steenwinkel. He is also Belgian, and we’ve been traveling together since Paris.

MEMORABLE MOMENT: My favorite moment of fashion week was the Martinez Brothers playing at the Givenchy party in Paris. I’ve seen them play a load of times back home in Manchester. They headlined the party in Paris, which was a top night, and all the boys back home were well impressed.

MEMORABLE MOMENT: Other than a few cheeky selfies with the likes of Will Smith and others, I’d have to say my best moment so far came when I first started. I’m still a newbie, but when I was scouted roughly seven months ago it was one week before the London Spring/Summer 2014 shows. I jumped into castings immediately, and a few days later I ended up opening London Fashion Week. I opened and closed for Lou Dalton. It was the first show of the season, my first walk, and I was the first boy out. It was INSANE! I made the Top Newcomers List on models.com, quit my job and never looked back. It was the best decision I ever made, and life hasn’t been the same since.


Louis Steyaert
HOMETOWN: Brussels, Belgium
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: Acne, Belstaff, J.W. Anderson, Missoni, Richard Chai, Robert Geller, Roberto Cavalli, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tom Ford

louis-s

MEMORABLE MOMENT: My most memorable moment this past season was probably when I was woken up around 6AM by Adam from Tom Ford. He said to me, “Jump in the shower, look fresh, and take a car to the show.” It was so early in the morning I did not know at all what was happening. The show was great, but I went straight to bed after that!


Luca Stascheit
HOMETOWN: Cologne, Germany
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Billy Reid, Dior, Ermenegildo Zegna, Gucci, Hermes, Jil Sander, Kris Van Assche, Michael Kors, Neil Barrett, Rag & Bone, Richard Chai, Roberto Cavalli, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tim Coppens, Valentino

luca-s

MEMORABLE MOMENT: My most memorable moment was in Tokyo when I was put on option for the Gucci campaign. At that time I was with my Japanese manager in the car on the way to castings. I only understand a few Japanese words, but one of those words was “maji de,” which means “really?!” After the call my manager turned around smiling and said I wouldn’t have any castings that day. I had to fly to Rome! That moment was so special because all you can do as a model is try to stay healthy and wait for incoming options. Two years of waiting and then that great feeling of booking my first big campaign.


Lucas Cristino
HOMETOWN: Leopoldina, Brazil
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: DKNY, Louis Vuitton, Missoni, Rag & Bone, Richard Chai, Z Zegna

lucas-c

MEMORABLE MOMENT: Finding out while I was in Milan that I was confirmed for the Louis Vuitton show in Paris was really memorable because I had never been to Paris before. The setup for the catwalk was so cool and when I started walking, I saw Will Smith watching from the front row!


Mariano Ontañon
HOMETOWN: Luján, Buenos Aires
FW14 HIGHLIGHTS: Dolce & Gabbana

mariano-o

MEMORABLE MOMENT: During the rehearsal the day before the Dolce & Gabbana show they told me that I was going to be opening the show. I was nervous at first, but the next day everything went really well.
