You can always count on John Galliano collections to have a touch of the exotic, and the F/W 2014 runway, featuring Ford Image’s Jane G. and Yulia, was no different. With looks that landed somewhere between Amelia Earhart and Cleopatra, these models were ready for adventure.
There’s always an air of mystery surrounding the Chloé girl – she’s cooly pulled together in a way that feels like she isn’t really trying.

Ford Image’s Solomiya walked the Kenzo F/W 2014 runway in a collection that saw Carol Lim and Humberto Leon explore Japanese elements past and present. Sporting a clean middle part and sunglasses, the model looked as if she was headed straight for modern day Tokyo. No doubt the Japanese would find her just as stunning as the French.
Phoebe Philo has a way of taking the quotidian and turning it into something extraordinary, and Ford Image’s Lexi joined the designer in this pursuit for the F/W 2014 runway.

A young girl goes on a warm-weather vacation with her family, only to find an unexpected love that will turn her world upside down. No, this isn’t Dirty Dancing, it’s the trailer for the Jacquemus SS14 film, La Grande Motte, directed by Bertrand Le Pluard and Christophe De Heaulme. Ford Image’s Dolores serves as the Jacquemus muse this season, traipsing around the famous seaport of southern France with an intoxicating beauty that only a girl in love can possess. Stay tuned to the blog for the full film later this season, and until then enjoy the trailer below.
Acne always seems to have some kind of musical jumping-off point, and this season seemed to be that of the 1960s gogo dancer. Ford Image’s Lexi & Ashleigh walked the runway with nude lips that matched their eyeliner and funky attitudes worthy of the Whiskey a Go Go circa 1965. No doubt these girls could dance the night away.
For Gant’s S/S 2014 campaign, Ford Men’s Tom James is seated behind the wheel of a classic car in retro-inspired sunglasses.

Tom is also featured in Gant’s S/S 2014 campaign, The Wedding Story. A celebration of the summer wedding, the campaign is accompanied by a video with grainy footage that mimics an 8 mm camera. Whether driving along the coastline or gallivanting around the woods of the northeast, this man is the living, breathing American Dream.
Sonia Rykiel’s F/W 2014 show, which featured Ford Image’s Iesha and Lexi, was a quintessentially French affair.

Ford Image’s Noel and Lera cover French Revue de Modes’ S/S 2014 issue. Photographed by Thierry Le Goues wearing pieces from the Louis Vuitton and Jean Paul Gaultier spring collections, these girls are just as impressive as the designers they’re wearing.
