Ford’s Veranika Antispava features in an article “Ferragamo on Fifth” on VMAGAZINE.COM photographed by Nagi Sakai. The 5’9″ (175 cm) Belarusian is pictured alongside new Salvatore Ferragamo creative director, Massimiliano Giornetti.
With the S/S 11 shows starting in just a fortnight the Ford Models Blog feels a bit like Peter Billingsley‘s character in A Christmas Story…Thursday the 9th can’t come soon enough! So, it is with that tugging of anticipation that we look to VMAGAZINE.COM (yes, all caps all the time for V) to kill another quarter of an hour with a wonderful slide show of photographs by Schohaja shot backstage at the Giorgio Armani Privé fall 2010 haute couture show in July that featured Ford’s Alana Zimmer, Karmen Pedaru, and Alexandra Tretter.
Zach Durham features as a part of the MDC Daily Duo for Wednesday, 25 Aug. 2010. The 6’1½” (187 cm) Fulton, New York native was originally spotted in an Abercrombie & Fitch store and not long afterward signed with Ford Models. Already busy with university studies (we’re told he’s maintaining a 4.0 GPA) Zach is set for an even fuller load this coming season with plenty of options lighting up his chart.
Art + Commerce hips us to many things. Their formidable portfolio of campaigns, their roster of photographers, and then there is their blog, which today of all grey days served a peach of a video featuring Crystal Renn shot by photographer Skye Parrott on set for the new Canadian fashion glossy The Block. With a run-time of only 24 seconds Crystal gets down and boogies to a funky beat wearing a VPL bodysuit. No graphics, no pretext, just Crystal dancing. Day-um! Once again Crystal has whet our appetite for yet another story of hers and so we’ll leave it to The Block to deliver…now dance!
Please visit Dossier Journal online to read more about this photo shoot of Crystal Renn for The Block.
Ford Models would like to welcome Valerija Kelava, the most recent model to join Paul Rowland‘s Ford division. Ranked #20 of MDC‘s Top 50 Models the 5’9½” (177 cm) Slovenian features in a Vogue Sep. 2010 editorial photographed by Steven Meisel with fashion editing by Grace Coddington and Edward Enninful. Titled “On the Town” the introductory text by Robert Sullivan previews the second annual Fashion’s Night Out, the fashion retail carnival cosponsored by CFDA, NYC & Company, and Vogue, which is set to include even more industry party people than last year.
Evandro Soldati, yes, that smoldering Evandro Soldati from the cover of Made in Brazil #1, the Evandro Soldati of all things Armani, the Evandro Soldati of that music video by…you get the idea. The 6’2″ (188 cm) Brazilian features in the September 2010 issue of GQ México — nope, us neither — photographed by Alexander Neumann and styled by Joseph Episcopo. Shot this past April in Montauk the story hits all the nautical notes that can be reached in late summer for a nation centered at +23° 0′ 0.00″, -102° 0′ 0.00″ — where else in North America could such a story run in September? We’re frankly ambivalent about which season when and for whom so long as we’re talking about Evandro.
Please visit The Fashionisto to see more pictures of Evandro from this GQ México editorial by Alexander Neumann.
Though it may have been waiting patiently on the desk of the Ford Models Blog for the better part of a week, it is all the same a story worth mentioning. We’re of course talking about Ford’s Antonella Graef featuring in the September 2010 issue of Elle in an editorial photographed by Terry Tsiolis and styled by Lester Garcia.
Ford Men’s Cheyne Oglesby features for the Andrew Marc F/W 10 campaign photographed by Chris Gbur. The 6’1″ (185 cm) American makes his fall campaign debut for the outerwear label that was acquired in 2008 by apparel giant G-III, also a licensed outerwear producer for Calvin Klein, Guess, Kenneth Cole, Tommy Hilfiger and others. The Ford Models Blog caught sight of Cheyne whilst paging through the September 2010 issue of Vogue between pages 76 and 172 (they don’t number adverts, mind) and still managed after the hundreds of other campaigns in the volume to remember to post it on this page.
Please visit Andrew Marc online to see more of the F/W 10 campaign featuring Cheyne Oglesby.
Weighs ten pounds, has 37 sections, nearly as many glossy inserts, and shows up late Saturday even though it’s named for the following day…yes, we’re talking about the Sunday edition of The New York Times. If normally you can’t be asked to schlep the Sunday Times from the corner bodega to your apartment, this weekend you might reconsider for its inclusion of T Magazine‘s “T Women’s Fashion Fall 2010″ that includes a Ford Models editorial photographed by Richard Burbridge.
Renovation is a messy business especially when it involves a retail space. There’s the dust, the noise, and the expense and added hassle of temporary relocation. Even moving across the street can create the sort of patron confusion that is every proprietor’s nightmare. And by the time the customers have been trained to walk across the street, it’s time to train them all over again to visit the original location. Announcing a reopening in Soho makes this all the more trickier a proposition with blue chip neighbors competing for retail patronage.
