Let me give you a break down on my model favorites. 17 years ago was about 1994. I was 14 years old. I remember seeing this poster for CK one that featured a new model by the name of Kate Moss, which I still have by the way, She was this tiny thing with dark straggly hair. A black tank top with her arms kind of folded over her shoulder. I instantly fell in love. I remember spending my 30 dollar allowance a day on every single magazine cover Kate Moss graced and skipped lunch at school. My room was covered in Kate Moss photos, magazine cutouts. I was addicted.
That was until…
I was a religious watcher of the AMAZING show back in the day called Fashion Television that featured runway shows at midnight, and saw this insanely gorgeous model named MariaCarla Boscono work the runway like no other model. She literally scratched that catwalk with every ounce of fluid movement that could come out of her body. She quickly became my new favorite. She has this look of this alien like long stemmed girl with big eyes huge eyes and kewpie doll lips. She truly is the most gorgeous, insane walker to date. Sorry Naomi. Mrs. Boscono will cut you on the runway with her pinkie toe.
I guess what they say in fashion ” New Season, New Face” is true, or at least pretty close…
I am addicted to this new show, about one of the worlds most wanted models board through the Premier agency based out of London, called ” THE AGENCY”. They featured this break out model named India Farrell. that was so breathtaking it kind of took me back. She was kind of this little fairy girl with this very angled chiseled face with tiny lips and big eyes and freckles- which I love on a fair skinned model. On the show they depicted her as the possible new “IT” girl and if you take a look at the photos, even her comp card. You could quickly see why. But, she was the hard to get girl. She was the one all the Designers wanted. Mario Testino wanted to interview her personally. Thats a rarity. Usually it goes. Booking Agent. Management. Designer. Makeup. Hair. Wardrobe and then the photographer. That is huge for a new face in the agency. Its sad really that she has only worked for 1 year. may be once she gets a bit older she will realize her worth and the amount of money and prestige in the business. Who doesn’t want to walk a show and automatically get trades with the designer. Geeze. walk for 20 minutes and make 5- 15000 dollars for that time. Are you crazy. Geeze.
In any case. She is GORGEOUS.
AND. I LEAVE YOU WITH THE GENIUS VISUAL OF MariaCarla Boscono on the catwalk. Best walker of this century.

It wouldn’t be Fashion Week without a PETA protest, but this weekend’s demonstration outside Donna Karan’s midtown offices sounds particularly memorable. The animal rights group plans to blast recordings of bunnies screaming while playing a video of rabbit slaughter. Karan’s been a PETA targetfor a while because she wears fur despite her crunchy, zen-loving image—perhaps you’ve seen posters around town calling her a “New Age hypocrite.” Look for the horrible noises to begin at noon outside Karan’s HQ on Seventh Avenue between 39th and 40th Streets.
Father is Croatian, mother is Serbian. From WWD profile December 20, 2010: “Since the fashion industry first began asking “Who’s the blonde girl?” at the Paris men’s shows in June (2010), 19-year- old Serbian Australian model Andrej Pejic has emerged as a poster boy for fashion androgyny. His long, platinum blonde hair and feminine features caught the attention of, among others, Steven Meisel and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Jean Paul Gaultier not only booked Pejic for his spring 2011 men’s show, he also cast him in his spring ad campaign alongside Czech supermodel Karolina Kurkova. Now it looks like Marc Jacobs may also be going the guess-the-gender route for his Marc by Marc Jacobs spring campaign. Pejic recently returned from shooting the ads in Marrakech with Juergen Teller alongside look-alike Latvian (female) model Ginta Lapina. Born in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Pejic and his family fled the war-torn region in the Nineties before settling as refugees in Melbourne, Australia.”
Jean Paul Gaultier’s favorite model of the moment is young Australian Andrej Pejic, whose near-absolute androgyny has made him a sought-after catwalker for men’s and women’s shows alike. JPG cast the statuesque blond opposite the equally statuesque blond Karolina Kurkova in his Spring ‘11 ad campaign, and sent him down the runway as both a tux-clad “James Blonde” and a gold-laméd lady at his Spring 2011 menswear show. Today, Pejic made a clean sweep of all the recent Gaultier goings-on: He took the second-to-last spot at the designer’s Spring 2011 Couture show as a veiledmariée.
They go into shops at the same time,” said Sarah Burton, to explain her canny alignment of McQueen’s huge (250-piece) pre-fall collection for women with the men’s collection she showed in Milan the other day. So you could find the same hints of regimental dressing, the same military touches. Well, “hints” is misleading, because the overwhelming impression was anything but understated. A navy officer’s coat swagged with gold? Sailor pants reconfigured as a dress through the magic of trompe l’oeil? A slender pantsuit of navy felt trimmed with red, which switched the gender of Manet’s immortal Drummer Boy? They were merely the beginning. Burton pointed to some decorative elements on lapels and necklines and said they’d been inspired by the Order of the Garter, one of the highest honors that British royalty can bestow. But her version had the extravagant exuberance of Louis XIV and the Sun King’s court.
The designer also said she was getting more comfortable with working on the stand, like McQueen himself used to, and one bias-cut beauty—maybe it started life as an officer’s coat, but it had been dissected and draped diagonally across the body, with a bodice of crusted crystal and gold beading attached—was all it took to prove Burton right.
At a pinch, that outfit, with its vague roots in something uniform, would probably fit with Burton’s insistence that she was attempting “to make luxury in an austere way.” That aim was also why she emphasized the uniform silhouettes of a group of pieces in the hottest, pop-est red and pink. But austerity was frankly doomed when there were opulent jacquards to match, and a pink fox chubby to throw over the whole lot. And Burton was clearly as comfortable with such indulgences as she was with the literally weightier elements in the McQueen collection. Meanwhile, the girl—or at least one of her dresses—made it to the White House, when Michelle Obama wore McQueen to the State Dinner. That’s one thing that might take a little more getting used to.
