There are fifty-two weeks in the calendar year, two of which including the coming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week that are arguably more important than the other fifty. In terms of maximum exposure, the week of 5 September cannot be bested and so it comes with added pride that we salute Ford’s Blanca who has been named as Models.com Model of the Week.
Introducing Frederik Tölke, now represented by Ford Models. Please visit fordmodelsblog.com to see pictures of and read about Frederik Tölke.
This page can bang on and on about which models watch [all of them -- News Ed.] for the coming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week S/S 2012, but after readers inhale the same hot air for the thirty-seventh time the message carries about as much credibility as the Pravda editorial page.

Ford Men’s Aiden Andrews spends the day modeling for a Web shoot for the Marc Jacobs Collection Mens 2012 line.
So long as you weren’t battling actual record-breaking flooding in Vermont, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Upstate New York or fully consumed by the Manhattan-centric Irene news cycle and an apartment thereafter filled with PBR empties and Trader Joe’s Sweetened Dried Green Mango wrappers, then whatever clarity (or dignity in the latter case) you still possessed might very well have been trained on that brilliant Vogue Japan October 2011 story featuring Ford’s Crystal Renn by photographer Giampaolo Sgura and fashion director-at-large Anna Dello Russo that was previewed Monday on Models.com.
