There were a slew of Ford models on Chanel’s F/W 2014 runway – Ford Men’s Jarrod Scott, as well as Ford Image’s Georgia, Lexi, Ashleigh and Zuzu all walked. It’s exactly what Chanel needed this season as the brand depicted everyday scenes from a zany suburbia in a makeshift supermarket. This was a family unit with a gene pool to die for.
Ford Men’s Conrad plays eye-candy to iconic model Pat Cleveland’s cougar in an editorial for the newest issue of Numéro Russia. Photographed by designer Tom Ford (who also cast Conrad in his S/S 2014 campaign) with styling by Andre Leon Talley, the shoot sees Conrad show off his toned body while wooing Cleveland across 14 pages. This young man has the promise of a career just as long as his female counterpart.
Ford Image’s Emily contrasts her sultry Sport Illustrated Swimsuit Issue shoot with a stark editorial for the latest issue of S Moda.

Hedi Slimane continued his ode to the Los Angeles underground with Saint Laurent’s F/W 2014 runway, featuring Ford Image’s Lexi & Yulia.

Roses were a central motif on the Giambattista Valli, F/W 2014 runway, featuring Ford Image’s Ashleigh. These were no delicate flowers, though. Ashleigh walked with the commanding confidence of a rock star, proving every rose does, in fact, have its thorn.
Ford Men’s Jarrod Scott stars in a nautical editorial for the newest issue of GQ Australia. Having been named the magazine’s 2013 Man of Style, Jarrod proves that he can make even the most laborious of tasks look good.

Here is a story that can only be told by a model who is equally as dynamic.
Riccardo Tisci veered away from his focus on the street towards avenues more historic at Givenchy’s F/W 2014 runway, featuring Ford Image’s Lexi, Ashleigh and Anne Sophie.
