the house of prada reigns supreme as trendsetter. while some collections might seem over the top or too minimal, it has been proven in the fashion market that the trends created by muiccia prada & her team are those that trickle for many seasons to follow. this season, prada created an imaginative campaign with the photographic aide of steven meisel. between the commercial & the campaign images, which you’re sure to see splashed on billboards and magazines alike in the coming months, prada continues to amaze. between the ombré hair extensions & the beautiful print which appears as a headlining element in the collection, the approach this season is that of pure unadulterated modernism. meisel has been able to flex creatively through a well executed broadcast of an image as well as a direction with the house of prada. much like his work with italian vogue, you don’t know what to expect from season to season, or month to month. i love this campaign in all aspects- the make-up, the hair, the set, the music. it’s all so vividly prada as a full force representation of the collection. i just wish the menswear campaign was as exciting.

as solid as the casting of this campaign may be, porcelain skin galore- i would love to see prada inject more ethnic models into what they do. this, of course, has always been a desire on my end & the basis of most discussions on my site. i understand the need for showcasing a certain image or direction, but the consistent absence of color in fashion is becoming a tiring discussion to bring up. as many campaigns you’ll see this season, very few represent our community. while the images that these brands create may be beautiful, it still promotes not only an unrealistic but biased view of beauty. im all for fantasy, but isn’t true beauty showcased through diversity? as popular and much more visible as models of color have become in the last three years, prada is one powerful label that has not shifted even in the slightest. the refusal to represent these forms of beauty is a big statement. as we’ve seen through the years, milan is among the hardest fashion capitals for models of color to work in. that’s not to say there aren’t exceptions but still. where are we as individuals, as varied shades of ethnic beauty in high end advertising?

fall shwpckg: women model management, new york

i’ve never been considered a jock or one who particularly enjoyed playing games, but one things for sure- when it comes to fashion, i imagine agencies are football teams & models are the players. in that respect, to be clear, women model management would be one of the two teams at the superbowl. in representing the industries top women, those numbers include 14 of which are ranked within the top 50, 5 of the highest earning, 5 industry icons & 5 of the sexiest working in fashion. names that should ring a bell for you: agyness deyn, alla kostromichova, angela lindvall, anne vualitsyna, bruna tenorio, cameron russell, caroline trentini, daria strokous, dorothea barth-jorgensen, eliza cummins, fei fei sun, ginta lapina, hilary rhoda – pause & take a breath – isabeli fontana, iselin steiro, izabel goulart, jamie bochert, jourdan dunn, karen elson, kasia struss, kristina romanova, lais ribeiro, lea t., mariacarla boscono,  mirte maas, natasha poly, nimue smit, rianne ten haken, rosie huntington-whiteley & toni garrn  are the names to know, faces to love & portfolios to beat in today’s modern fashion era. packing a powerful punch in every respect, these females are seen on the covers of vogue internationally & sell you the jeans on your ass & the shoes on your feet. established in 1988, women model management remains at the top of their game by way of representing a wide range of beauty. with commercial faces you know from estee lauder in the form of hilary rhoda, women models also breaks barriers for perceptions of beauty in representing new forms of androgyny in the form of jamie bochert or a new face, you might’ve heard about, ms. lea t. these are the bitches to beat. i called the play.

editorialesque » iselin steiro for vogue paris

iselin steiro lands in the pages of french vogue yet again, retracing familiar ground through the lens of david sims. represented by women model managment, steiro appears for the publication’s november issue as a roller skating punk rock chick. in the form of cheeky poses & an in your face attitude, iselin has appeared for campaigns with lanvin, tommy hilfiger, versace & balenciaga- her noted presence in fashion is that of more modern beauty. here we see almost an oppostion of commercialized beauty we would expect to see in a publication like french vogue. i admire that opposition & unexpected element of photographic presentation. a fresh take on fall fashion with an over the top style sensibility.

fall fashion by david sims for french vogue

what yo’ name iz? crystal renn, iselin steiro, freja beha erichsen, daria werbowy,
jac jagaciak, frida gustavsson, joan smalls, aline weber, isabeli fontana

as the fall fashion season approaches, french vogue gives you the opportunity to get reminded of what was shown on the runway from all the top designers. combined with the top designs of fall are the industries top females. each fashion house & label is greatly represented by each female, who stands out in each of their spotlighted features. the model cast as read above is in order by image. while the sequence seen here is not what appears in the hardcopy of the publication; im very much about model identification & felt it much more important to list the images as so. a great fashion blow out & a true testament to my own personal beliefs that fall fashion is the best fashion by far, from season to season- each year. images by david sims.

the fall versace campaign

what yo’ name iz? anna selezneva, iselin steiro, valerija kelava,
tomek szczukiecki, marcel castenmiller

the fall/winter 2010 versace ad campaign was shot entirely in black & white & focuses on the futuristic design concepts within the collection in a classic way. while i feel like the collection could’ve been showcased in a much more progressive form, the collection is one of my favorites for the fall. i loved the galactic design elements & use of metallics within the set & as far as the casting, im glad to see anna selezneva. in comparison to the other models- she’s front row. campaign shot by mario testino.
