Ever since New York Magazine published its piece on normcore, the aesthetic has been sprouting up everywhere. Ford Image’s Miriam Haney stars in a shoot that embraces the trend for the newest issue of M Le Monde, photographed by Charlie Engman and styled by Carine Bizet. Through bare-faced beauty looks and billowing silhouettes, Miriam’s inherent charms leave you wondering if this might just be the new sexy.
The age-old battle of form vs. function is resolved in a new editorial for Women’s Health starring Ford Direct’s Jill de Jong. Leaping through the desert in activewear pieces by designers like Stella McCartney and Norma Kamali, the model drives home the point that just because you want to live an active life doesn’t mean you can’t live a fashionable one. With her sleek updo and graphic sunglasses, this girl is light years ahead of Suzanne Somers.
Ford Men’s Jarrod Scott heads to the resort town of Palm Springs for the new issue of El Libro Amarillo by Palacio de Hierro. Looking like he stepped straight out of an Ed Ruscha painting, Jarrod is the exemplar of mid-century modernism in pieces by Burberry, Canali and Hugo Boss. With photography by David Roemer and styling by Luis Pena, this man is a work of art.
2014 V Magazine Model Search winner Iesha continues to take the fashion world by storm after walking the F/W 2014 runways for Bottega Veneta, Marc Jacobs and more. In a new editorial for Rollacoaster magazine shot by Thomas Giddings and styled by Anna Trevelyan, the model dons 80’s inspired pieces and a pop-art look. Equal parts Madonna and Keith Haring, this is a side of Iesha we haven’t seen before, and we have to admit we like it.
Here at Ford, we know our models are more than just models, and we like to showcase their hidden talents and passions whenever possible. That’s why we found ourselves in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood on a blustery Sunday afternoon watching Ford Men’s Mihaly making a graffiti mural on the back of a movers truck. Between breaks, we spoke with Mihaly about how he came to love graffiti and his affinity for clowns.
GQ Taiwan follows up its gentlemanly editorial starring Ford Men’s David Gandy with a special behind-the-scenes video from the shoot. Whether lounging in a stately parlor or hitting the streets in the perfect three-piece suit, David looks nothing but dashing. Of course, a little pomade and a grooming editor don’t hurt.
Too often fashion editorials rely on heavy thematic elements and over-the-top sets. In a new shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Men’s Thailand, Ford Men’s Francisco Lachowski stars in a grounded spread completely devoid of unnecessary accoutrements. Shot by Natth Juturapahu in a no-frills style, the editorial sees Francisco working up a sweat in athletic pieces from S/S 2014. Clearly this man can carry a shoot.
It doesn’t get more Australian than Ford Men’s Jarrod Scott, so it’s appropriate that Vogue Hommes International featured the model in a 16-page spread dedicated to his home country for its newest issue. Photographed by Mark Segal and styled by Azza Yousif, the editorial sees Jarrod visiting Australia’s outback, jungles and forests wearing pieces by Calvin Klein, Bottega Veneta, and Haider Ackermann. Looking completely at home in his native habitat, this is jingoism at its finest.
Ford Men’s John Hein heads to the urban seashore in a new film by Visual Tales magazine. Directed by Candy Kennedy and styled by John Tan, the short sees John wandering the streets of Brooklyn towards a deserted boardwalk. Whether skipping stones or simply lounging around, this guy has us dreaming of the carefree days of summer.

Back in February, we showed you The New Yorker’s Instagram coverage of New York Fashion Week, lensed by photographer Lauren Lancaster as she followed Ford Image’s Kate Goodling through her hectic schedule. Today, the publication introduces Lancaster’s full portfolio from the week. Following Kate from her Brooklyn home to the tents of Lincoln Center, the images provide a surprisingly raw and lovely portrait of an Oregon girl now poised on a global stage.
