Viktor & Rolf’s most recent couture runway, featuring Ford Image’s Nell, was a meditation on the red carpet in contemporary culture. Literally wrapped in a swath of crimson carpet, the model walked the runway with minimal makeup. The look may have been bold, but this girl was bolder.
The Balmain campaign was just the tip of the iceberg for Ford Image’s Kayla. In the August issue of Interview Magazine, the rising talent is one of 7 fresh faces shot by Gregory Harris and styled by Elin Svahn. Clad in Sandro, Margiela and Miu Miu, this girl is poised to become just as iconic as the designers she’s wearing.
Today we lost our founder, as well as a mentor, a mother and an icon. Eileen Ford was an indomitable force who not only defined Ford Models, but the world of modeling itself. The myriad ways Eileen affected the world of fashion and the public perception of beauty are ineffable. Though she will be missed, her fearlessness, generosity of spirit and unequivocal vision will continue to live on in the agency she founded nearly 70 years ago.
Not too long ago we introduced you to Ford Men’s Jesse Urban, and now we’re back with a brand new editorial for Visual Tales magazine. Photographed by Peter Stanglmayr and styled by John Tan exclusively in Sidian Ersatz & Vanes, Jesse shows off the best pieces from the up-and-coming brand across the 10-page spread. Whales and dolphins and orcas aside, what we really can’t take our eyes off of here is that face.
There were undoubtedly some Greco-Roman undertones at the Valentino couture show today, with models traversing a garden that felt pulled straight from ancient Rome. Ford Image’s Lexi walked with bronze beauty accents in an ivy print dress whose pattern mimicked mosaics from the time period. The overall effect was of one of the garden’s statues come to life.
