When a model of the stature of Maryna Linchuk newly arrives at Ford I have tended to hold fire on the Ford Models Blog in order to allow the model time to properly bed into her new agency. Today, however I am foregoing this unspoken formality to highlight a certain Vogue Россия Май 2011 cover story featuring one of Paul Rowland‘s newest signees photographed by Patrick Demarchelier.
For a German magazine that takes its name from that place historically known for keeping caged wild animals for the express purpose of entertaining the planet’s dominant species, it is appreciated that the overall commitment to entertainment rather than iron bars has been maintained. Entertainment for Zoo Magazine #30 2011 comes in the form of an editorial featuring Ford’s Delfine Bafort photographed by Dancian.
Ford’s Sigrid Agren, Julia Saner, and Ford Men’s Brad Kroenig featured in the presentation of the Chanel resort 2012 collection by Karl Lagerfeld Monday afternoon at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc in Antibes, France.

There are certainly worse ways to make an editorial debut than in a 40+ page exlcusive by Hedi Slimane for Man about Town. However, that is just what Ford Men’s Brennen Steines has done with his feature in Man about Town Spring / Summer 2011, which is guest edited by the former Dior Homme creative director.
This story surfaced on Friday of last week as a Models.com exclusive preview. Knowing our page’s readership well, however means you lot have already seen the cover of Tush 24 featuring Ford’s Crystal Renn photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth.
Fashion loves May 1968, otherwise known as mai 68, the period in which a general strike combined with student unrest effectively precipitated the collapse of then president Charles de Gaulle‘s government in France.
After having ditched the Lone Star State at a dodgy RER station in les banlieues outside of the French capital, the “Paris & Texas” theme of Sleek N°29 Spring 2011 continues apace with this editorial titled “Parisien” featuring Ford Men’s Nikola Jovanovic photographed by Markus Jans.
Editor in chief Annika von Taube‘s German-published quarterly Sleek is no stranger to cultural pastiche. In general it is not that German fashion magazines struggle for currency — 032c of Berlin for that matter is a veritable IMF that guards against such exchange rate instability — but publishing a bilingual Deutsch und Englisch edition is the de facto spoonful of Zucker for an international readership to swallow der Medizin [who actually reads magazines anyway? - Ed.].
Having Ford Men’s Linus Gustin in town for the last couple months has been enjoyable. Around the agency the model, whose name most Americans associate with the character from the Charles M. Schulz comic strip, is well liked and even quite funny, though from his stoic-looking print and runway work you’d never know it.
Since Emmanuelle Alt took the editorial reins of Vogue Paris, the first two covers may have featured fashion icons in the form of Gisele Bündchen and Kate Moss, but the issues themselves are not simply greatest hits tributes à la Rolling Stone.
