Brazil possesses an embarrassment of riches in modeling talent and Ford Models Brasil is no exception. So it brings pleasure to look at the São Paulo S/S 11 show package of Ford Models Brasil that includes amongst others Alana Zimmer, Daiane Conterato, Francisco Lachowski, and Evandro Soldati. Will Brazil win the 2010 World Cup? Who knows, but we imagine it’s even money betting on Ford Brasil in 2011.
We can’t think of Fred Perry and not think of The Specials or the really hard looking blokes hanging about the Victoria station in the early 1970s. Yeah, don’t mess with them lads or for that matter Ford Men‘s Fionn MacDiarmid who features in the Fred Perry S/S 10 campaign. Fred Perry couldn’t have picked a more appropriate model than a geezer from Lambeth. Well in, Fionn.
The Ford Models Blog often writes about Crystal Renn and for good reason. Crystal is neither a seasonal trend nor a flavor of the week. We consider her a leading indicator of change in the fashion industry. But, don’t just take our word for it, try arguing otherwise with Cindi Lieve, Karl Lagerfeld, or André Leon Talley.
Here’s a sneak peek from an upcoming beauty how to video produced today featuring Ford Artists‘ makeup artist Craig Honeycutt and Inga Eiriksdottir of Ford +. Inga’s been very busy since her Vogue Russia story by Terry Tsiolis and will hopefully have time to speak to the Ford Models Blog very soon.
The party of the 21st century will be in China and so it’s with little surprise that John Galliano kicked off his Christian Dior Cruise 2011 collection in Shanghai. Along with about a trillion dollars in American debt China owns a lot and will for the foreseeable future so it makes perfect sense for Dior to go where the money is. Dior has spared little expense in launching Galliano’s decidedly Parisian cruise line by commissioning filmmaker David Lynch to make a short film called Lady Blue Shanghai featuring Marion Cotillard.
Only on Friday did we mention the arrival of Karmen Pedaru to Ford Models and today we are able to share her most recent editorial from Numéro Tokyo shot by photographer David Vasiljevic. The story, “Befallen by Pink,” as you would expect shows Karmen in various shades of pink.
It’s Friday and we all want to get out of here, but before we end the trial that is the work week there are a few closing arguments we’d like to make:
+ Mayer Hawthorne, handsome crooner and our dear friend, has a new music video for the song “One Track Mind” from the album A Strange Arrangement. Mayer’s latest video is directed by Spanish filmmaker Santi Aguado and features a love triangle between Mayer, his high strung office mate, and a mannequin. Yup, you read that right, a mannequin!
Kellan Lutz, why now? There is a critical mass point in the career of a successful model where his image ceases to only advertise a fragrance or undergarments and starts to connote the himself. Anonymity evaporates and suddenly the hunk of man in the bespoke suit has a name, an identity. Who today can look at the Calvin Klein X Underwear campaign and not think, “That’s Kellan Lutz, the Twilight bloke”?
The Chanel Resort 2011 show took place in Saint-Tropez this week and featured Ford Models’ Brad Kroenig, Crystal Renn, and Hanne Gaby. With Karl Lagerfeld casting the show there was little surprise at the inclusion of his friend and male icon Brad Kroenig.
