Sometimes models only need to have one name. Ford Image’s Julia continues to be an indie darling in Oyster Magazine, having previously starred in editorials for Interview and U Magazine. Simply titled Julia, the Ivan Ruberto-lensed and Helen Rendell-styled shoot sees the model sporting spring’s trend toward refined athleticism. With her gamine beauty and pared down aesthetic, nothing else is necessary.
The power suit doesn’t exist anymore, or at least not in the traditional sense. Ford Men’s Matt Terry, Tommy Dunn and Brad Kroenig showcase spring’s best suits from Armani, Burberry and Lanvin for the newest issue of VMan Magazine. Photographed by Cedric Buchet and styled by Michael Philouze, these men mix pops of color with progressive tailoring for a more current look. Clearly they aren’t afraid to push the boundaries.
Russians have a notorious affinity for luxury. Unlike his showy predecessors, Ford Men’s Chris Folz models more pared down leather looks for the newest issue of GQ Russia. Shot by Yin Chao and styled by Ekaterina Melnikova, the editorial sees Chris wearing pieces by Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Phillip Plein. This guy still enjoys extravagance, just the kind that’s more subdued.
It’s not often that we get all of our models in the same room, let alone the same spread. For issue 2 of Vandals Magazine, Ford Image’s Miriam, Joanna, Alyosha, Kate, Iesha, Emily and Lexi are lensed by photographer Chad Moore for an exclusive Ford editorial. Spread across 10 pages with a lo-fi vibe, these girls shine as the new generation of Ford.
For Fall/Winter 2014, the month-long gauntlet that is fashion week began in the streets of New York, where Ford girls braved a polar vortex to walk for American staples like Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger. A quick flight to London saw Ford Image’s Yulia walk for J.W. Anderson. Fast forward to the cobbled stradas of Milan, and our girls, still unwavering, appeared on the runways for the likes of Fendi, Bottega Veneta and Dolce & Gabbana. Nearly a month after it had all began, their trip culminated in the historic rues of Paris, walking for such fabled houses as Chanel, Balenciaga and Maison Martin Margiela. Upon returning to New York, the season had changed. Now in a balmy 50 degrees, these girls might have been travel-weary and tired, but they were just as beautiful.
Ford Image’s Ashleigh stars in a club-themed shoot for the newest issue of Self Service Magazine. Shot by Alasdair McLellan with styling by Jane How, Ashleigh wears rock-inspired pieces from Isabel Marant, Louis Vuitton and Rodarte. In a recent interview with CR Fashion Book, the model spoke about playing a role whenever she’s on the runway or in front of the camera. Here, she looks every bit the part of a modern Debbie Harry.
Ford Artists and Ford Models have teamed up on the official video debut for Ford Chicago’s New Faces of 2014. Directed by Christopher Antolak, the 11 young talents head to Chicago boutique Akira for a spring shopping spree, turning the store into their own personal playground. Across multiple outfit changes and a few dressing room shenanigans, these fresh faces look nothing but flawless. It takes an army to look this good.
Watch the video & acquaint yourself with Ford Chicago’s new faces below.
Looking at a photo of Ford Image’s Lexi is like listening to a good aria – all the parts coming together to create something harmonious. For V Magazine’s newest issue, the model is able to showcase this musical quality, posing with a French horn in hand. Shot by Anthony Maule and styled by Tom Van Dorpe, Lexi’s elegant features make a beautiful whole.
It’s no secret that CR Fashion Book is a fan of Ford Image’s Ashleigh Good, starring in multiple editorials for the magazine’s most recent issue. In her final story for issue 4, the model sits down with the publication in a one-on-one interview to talk how she was discovered, playing a character on the runway and leaving the church. Read the interview below and purchase a copy of CR Fashion Book’s Fantasy Issue here.
Ford Men’s Kwame Davis returns to his boxing roots in a new film for Nowness.com. Directed by Douglas Keeve and written by Glenn O’Brien, the short sees Kwame spar with female model Hannelore Knuts in a riff on the televised fights of the 1960s. As the tension rises, so does the absurdity, ultimately coming to a climax that is (almost) as astounding as Kwame’s chiseled physique.
