The other week together with VMAN we introduced the finalists for the VMAN FORD MODEL SEARCH: Ford Smith, Luke Briggs, Michael Wozniak, and Nicholas Madrid. After some weather-related flight delays our finalists finally made it to the City where they yesterday had their VMAN cover shoot with photographer Terry Richardson.
The Supermodel of the World final was held in São Paulo, Brazil back in January 2010. Karlina of the Baltics was named the Supermodel of the World winner and awarded a contract with Ford Models worth $250,000. This video is a look back at the transformative week spent in São Paulo.
Last week we had the pleasure of visiting with Mayer Hawthorne before he embarked on his North American tour through April 15. We’re big fans of his music that can be described as having a Motown soul with a fresh pair of kicks. Who, though is Mayer Hawthorne? For the record he’s a musician, vocalist, and producer who has a record out on Stones Throw called A Strange Arrangement, which counts Snoop Dogg amongst its many celebrity admirers.
Mark our words V Magazine 64 is an issue of which you’ll want to purchase two copies: one to read, one to save for posterity. V 64 has an incredible story photographed by Richard Burbridge that stars V A MODEL winner Emma Dumont as the evidently not-so-inimitable Lady Gaga in five points on the globe: the United Kingdom, Spain, Thailand, Africa, and Vatican City. Emma is joined by fellow Ford models Mariel, Rico Nieves, Crystal Renn, Daniel Liu, Charlene Almarvez, and AJ Abualrub.
VMAN has announced the finalists for the VMAN FORD MODEL SEARCH: Ford Smith, Luke Briggs, Michael Wozniak, and Nicholas Madrid. In a couple weeks these four will be photographed by Terry Richardson for VMAN 18 and the winner will feature on the cover. Past VMAN searches have produced Petey (VMAN 11), CJ Hancock & Jake Madden (VMAN 13), and most recently Rico Nieves (VMAN 16). We’re looking forward to the shoot in a couple weeks and cannot wait announce the winner.
Ford Men rule the world in general and in particular this DKNY Men S/S 10 campaign. Shot by photographer Nathaniel Goldberg the campaign that recalls Reservoir Dogs makes use of the inimitable Brad Kroenig as well as Chris Folz, Din Yates, Jared Koronkiewicz, Leo Peixoto, and Tommy Dunn.
Jacquelyn Jablonski…the model whose name is on the lips of almost everyone in fashion will appear in Deutsch 42 in a cover story shot by photographer David Roemer. The reader will recall that for Deutsch 41 Roemer photographed Chanel Iman so in this sense Jacquelyn also finds herself in very esteemed company. Which of course is no surprise. The world is yours, Jac!
Karlina features in this MDX shoot on MDC by Chadwick Tyler. The shoot was produced by MDC and features amongst others Karlina wearing clothing by Rad Hourani. We love the black & white photography and of course Karlina right there at the beginning of the story!
