NYFW: Liz Kennedy for Noon by Noor


Happy Friday everyone!  How much would you love to wear Liz Kennedy's look from the Noon by Noor show this spring weekend?  I know I wouldn't mind wearing it on a date or to a bridal shower, or even just to brunch with friends.  I digress, but that's what fashion does to me!  

We just came across this picture of Liz from New York Fashion Week's Noon by Noor Spring 2015 show, and we thought it would be a perfect pic to start off your weekend. We love seeing our girl Liz on the runway in New York, its a far cry from her hometown in Minnesota, but she looks like she was born to be on the runway.  She just shot an editorial with a major fashion magazine, and we can't wait to share it with you when we can!

Liz and Olivia Take on the World


We post a lot about our models and their various jobs.  When you see a picture of them in a magazine editorial or walking a runway during fashion week it is easy to forget that they are just normal teenagers, who have an extraordinary profession.  We love when our models become friends, because to us it shows their maturity.  They don't feel like they need to be competitive with each other, they see each other as friends who can relate to the crazy world of modeling that they now are a part of.

Liz Kennedy and Olivia Hamilton are two of our fastest rising new faces, and they are also best friends.  We scouted Olivia in Colorado and Liz in Minnesota, and now these two friends are going all over the world together.  We love seeing their pics because it helps us see that they are not only surviving in the industry, they are thriving together.  Having someone by your side that understands the highs and lows of the job is priceless, and we are so glad that these friends have each other.

New Pics of Ashland


Yesterday we posted about test shoots, and the importance of them.  While that is fresh in your memory, here are some of Ashland Wendlandt's latest pics.  She recently had a shoot with fashion photographer Alejandro Poveda in New York City.  These pictures are a little bit more character-driven of Ashland, and it is fun to see her fun personality peeking through in some of these.

New Pics of Alisha Judge


Sometimes we get complaints from models about doing test shoots, just like we do when we ask models to do polaroids.  Models shouldn't have to do test shoots as frequently as they do polaroids (not even close to that often), but every once in a while even our models who work the most do a test shoot for some fresh new images.  Alisha Judge is a good example of this.  If you follow the blog, (or click here) you can see how busy Alisha has been lately.  This does not exempt her from doing a test shoot, and we are so glad she did!  These images from her shoot with photographer Taylor Tupy are something special.  These pictures look timeless, she is the main focal point, and she looks beautiful.  This is a test shoot done very well, and we are loving it!

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Hye Park for H&M


For today's Major Moment Monday, we are throwing it back all the way to 2007!  When Hye Rim Park landed this H&M advertising campaign, it was a huge accomplishment.  Sharing the campaign with supermodel Erin Wasson made this an even bigger coup, it was monumental for Hye who's career was just starting to take off.  We discovered Hye when she was a college student in Utah, and then she went on to become one of the most successful models we have ever discovered, developed and managed.

Liz Kennedy for Blank NYC


I think the crew at Blank NYC was on to something when they used Liz Kennedy in their Spring 2015 look book.  Looking through these pictures we can't help but think that Liz embodies the effortlessly cool vibe that the brand is all about, and we want to buy every piece in the collection!  Click here to see all of the fantastic pictures of Liz, and we dare you to not want to buy at least a couple of items.  Liz looks as amazing as ever, and we love seeing her get more comfortable in front of the camera.  Her pictures have always been beautiful, but her latest work we're seeing a little bit more attitude from her (which is just good modeling, because she is as sweet as they come!), and we're into it Liz!

Happy Birthday to Marc Jacobs!


As I hopped online to day it came to my attention that it is the birthday of the one and only, Marc Jacobs.  As a fashion lover, it is my duty to wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Not only is Marc Jacobs one of the most talented fashion designers in the game right now, he is a fellow former Parsons student, so I feel like I have an extra kinship with him.

Marc Jacobs has helped bring legitimacy back to American fashion design, and his time at the helm of Louis Vuitton proved to even the most discerning fashionista that an American viewpoint and designer was just as good as his french counterpoints.

A few of our models have worked for Marc Jacobs throughout the years and each time, it has been a privilege to see our models working with the best of the best.  Hannah Holman was even cast solo in the first Daisy fragrance ads, which was huge for her career.

We wouldn't be surprised if few models from our latest crop of standouts are cast for work with Marc Jacobs soon, because right now we have the most promising group we have had in a long time.
