Ford’s Karmen Pedaru features in a lengthy introduction photographed by Camilla Akrans to the Harper’s Bazaar September 2010 fall editorials. Suzy Menkes sets the tone for the approaching fall season in the accompanying text by stating uncontroversially that the economic climate has brought back a certain sensibility to fashion. To that end gone are impractical articles that are either too mannish or “girly,” read age inappropriate. The coming fall season is opting for security, but also hedging its bet for better times with geometric silhouettes, modern “techno” fabrics, and plenty of camel coloring, though not necessarily all at once.
Ford Men’s Lars Burmeister features in the Sarar F/W 10 campaign photographed by Koray Birand. What began as a tailor shop started by Abdurrahman Sarar in 1944 today has grown into a major Turkish clothier with its own distinctive womenswear and menswear lines as well lines manufactured for other brand private labels.
Well, turns out Ford’s Tayane Leão wasn’t the only outsider in yesterday’s post about the September 2010 Dazed & Confused editorial by Sharif Hamza and stylist Robbie Spencer. Nope, as it so happens Ford Men’s Seth Miller also had a starring role in this PSA for juvenile delinquency. The 6’1″ (185 cm) New York native was signed with the men’s division after having been scouted a two years ago from our online submission page. Fast forward a few seasons and the boy has come good, very good. We promise not to overlook Seth in future editorials that also feature our girls lest he trash the place like he did in this story.

… Isaac Carew features in the Reiss F/W 10 campaign photographed by Jamie Morgan. In late July the Ford Models Blog left the 6’2½” (189 cm) Briton standing on the pavement outside the pub for Farah and is well pleased to see that he made it over to the British fashion retailer founded in 1971 by David Reiss.
Ford Men’s Aiden Andrews features in a September 2010 Dazed & Confused editorial photographed by Serge Leblon and styled by Bryan McMahon. The last time the 6’2″ (188 cm) American featured in the British magazine in July makeup artist Peter Philips had given him the battlefield treatment, but for this September editorial titled “The Dreamers” the look is less war and more love or, put another way, less Christopher Nolan than it is Syd Barrett. Colors dissolve, textures blend…Kenzo into Vivienne Westwood Gold Label into Dior Homme into John Galliano… . Whether Aiden’s waiting for the kick or his bike with a basket is unclear, but what is clear is that the Ford Models Blog very much enjoys the expansive Dazed editorials and Aiden Andrews.
Ford’s Tayane Leão features in the September 2010 issue of Dazed & Confused in an editorial called “The Outsiders” photographed by Sharif Hamza and styled by Robbie Spencer. The editorial of course borrows its name and some of its teenage angst from the 1967 novel of the same name by S.E. Hinton and the later motion picture adaptation by Francis Ford Coppola in 1983.
If a magazine picture appears on the interweb and no one has the issue, was it ever published? No, this isn’t 100 levels philosophy, this is fashion in the Information Age as well as the inquiry that began after seeing pictures of Ford Men’s Ethan James by photographer David Armstrong from Electric Youth Magazine‘s EY! Magateen #6 Summer 2010. And some issue it is! Let the Ford Models Blog explain…
The unbridled excitement of the EY! Megateen #6 Summer 2010 issue continues apace with a feature by Bruce Weber on Ford Models new boy Bo Ackerson. The 6’1½” (187 cm) Kansas City born model acquits himself rather well over a special glossy six-page spread in an otherwise coarsely printed issue by the photographer famed for his Abercrombie & Fitch quarterlies.
Two down, one to go…Ford Men’s Isaac Weber and AJ Abualrub appear in a story titled “Six Hunks Ahead!” photographed by Karim Sadli in EY! Megateen #6 Summer 2010. Printed in the glossy center of EY! we learn that the 6’1″ (185 cm) Denver native Isaac considers Obsession by Calvin Klein to be his favorite fragrance and that until age ten he lived with house-trained indoor pigs.
Ford Men’s Daniel Di Tomasso, Dave Genat, Din Yates, Matt Gontier, and James Collins feature in the Jones New York F/W 10 campaign photographed by Annie Leibovitz in Grand Central Terminal, the location of which could not be a more apt metaphor for a shoot that contains upwards of thirty models. Group campaigns like this can be a tricky proposition in terms of emphasis, but with near equal billing for all models who can complain? In addition to seeing our boys it is also a welcome sight seeing a campaign shot by Ms. Leibovitz — more of this please!
Further campaign credits include styling by Lori Goldstein; hair styling by Jimmy Paul; makeup by Gucci Westman.
