Make it as a model

If you’re looking for a way into modelling you could do a lot worse than a competition. And if you want to make it in New York then working with an emerging brand is a good bet. Interested?

London-based D1 models and hip NYC brand SGC have teamed up to launch a Twitter comp to find the next face of their Spring video. All you’ve got to do is send them a snap via Twitter – see below for all the deets..

Packing Heat

Once I have the body of a goddess (aka Liberty Ross) courtesy of Dean Callis I will allow myself to dream of owning this collection.

The Menswear Shows AW11 part 1

I know I’m a bit behind on this what with the Milan RTW menswear shows taking place in January and it now being March but I’ve been a very busy girl… Somehow this evening seems the perfect moment to remedy this though.  Aside from the fact that Zoolander was on the telly tonight..

Nothing says Roberto Cavalli like a snakeskin suit…

…I’ve been chatting with a (male) friend of mine on Twitter and between us we decided that Greek model/god Paraskevas Boubourakas is THE ultimate manly man that all men aspire to be.

With this in mind, I’ve been looking over some of the images from the shows he walked in and I think I’ve had a two-part epiphany.  While I thought I was quite indifferent, I’m coming to realise I’m actually quite passionate about menswear.  (And weirdly enough this realisation is influencing my taste in womenswear.)

The second part is that my wardrobe needs to embrace the ’70s.  You see, I’ve always been infatuated with all things ’70s – I’m having complex emotions about the SS11 ’70s trend.  On the one hand I’m thrilled that what I love is in fashion, but horrified that the industry will do it to death and I’ll never want to see another flared jean or paisley print for as long as I live –  but I’ve never really bought into it and worn it in a literal way.

Nonetheless, as I’ve looked through the menswear shows from Milan I’ve discovered that I’m viscerally drawn to the ’70s looks.  Perhaps it’s something to do with the models being men rather than women – their broad shoulders are just crying out for a polo neck and a blazer – that this look is so successful and resists bordering on fancy dress.  (It’s here that I wish I could in fact be a man so I could wear these looks with such nonchalance.)  Or perhaps it’s one of those instances where, because these are men, it’s easier for me to look at these garments as abstract artworks to be gazed upon rather than worn – just like I would gaze upon a gloriously patterned Matisse painting.

Either way, I think it’s time to buy into more corduroy, velvet and pattern.

Here are some of the best looks from my favourite shows:




Coming up in the next part – my favourite looks from the London Fashion Week menswear shows.  Stay tuned.
