Rose Cordero, Antonella Graef, Charlene Almarvez, Karolin Wolter, and Hyoni Kang feature on the runway for the Diane von Furstenberg Resort 2011 collection.
So far as photography is concerned runway stock’s closest cousins are the pictures taken at crime scenes, which by necessity are clinical, explicit, and often harsh. The photographer’s lens ought never upstage the designer’s collection and it is for this reason that we delight in the more expressive off-runway portraits that emerge after the official event has been documented.
Ford Men’s Gelati appears in this beauty feature for Vogue Italia photographed by Miles Aldridge. Our male readers will do well to pay attention to Gelati’s hair color because rather than go stately grey who amongst them wants to shave their head at the onset of male pattern baldness and grow diversionary facial hair?
Ford Men’s Lars Burmeister is set to have a brilliant Berlin Fashion Week S/S 11 for his mother agency, SPIN Model Management of Hamburg. Ranked #4 of MDC‘s Top 50 Male Models, Lars has memorably featured in campaigns for Giorgio Armani Acqua di Giò and Hugo Boss.
Ford Men’s Isaac Weber appears on the cover of the third and forthcoming issue of HERO photographed by Doug Inglish. As soon as we’re able to share with you the rest of the editorial we will. Please visit Hero-zine.com to order your copy today.
Friday Sundries, let’s go!
+ Hannelore Knuts this week joined Ford. Of course we are a bit embarrassed to shoehorn a model of Hannelore’s stature and talent into this humble space, but rest assured that the Ford Models Blog will do a proper feature on her in the coming weeks. There’s so much to tell about the Belgian model from her curating the ULTRAMEGALORE exhibition at the ModeMuseum Hasselt in Belgium to her recent handbag design work for Delvaux, the 181-year-old leather company of Belgium. This week Vogue.com featured Hannelore on their fashion blog and we intend to do the same very soon. Welcome, Hannelore, we can’t wait to meet you.
If you haven’t already sourced a copy of V65, then you’ll appreciate that V Magazine today posted a behind-the-scenes teaser for Sebastian Faena‘s “Paradise Lost” editorial featuring Ford’s Dafne Cejas. The video taken from that Buenos Aires café interior wherein a Dafne sits veiled wearing a red Versace dress is set to “Yesterday Once More” by The Carpenters.
Pier 59, New York — The VMAN Male Model World Cup in the end was more fashion than football, but try telling that to the boys on the pitch fighting it out for top honors. Not even in the World Cup proper will you find participants averaging a height of 6’0 and as such there would have been no place for the likes of diminutive Leo Messi or Andrés Iniesta at the VMAN sponsored event.
