Top 5 New Faces NYC S/S 08

New York fashion week is over again already and, well it was more boring than ever if you ask me. There was not one show to get excited about. Even though the Marc Jacobs show was overhyped as always, I didn't have any feelings for that collection this season whatsoever. But, luckily, there is always a small crop of interesting new girls to hit the New York runways. Some predicted stars didn't prove their warnings right (read: Siri, Meghan, Cicely), so there was enough space for some other girls to take over. As usual, I will give you my five favourites without explanation and when Paris is over, you'll have my list of 10 definite girls with explanation. Oh, and don't expect any Marc Jacobs exclusives on this list...they were ugly anyway. The exlusive-eyes were all on Calvin Klein this time.

New Model Crush: Masha Novoselova

It's almost fashion week again and the showcard madness has already started, but even before that this Russian stunner already caught mine and others eyes. Meet Masha Novoselova, one of my latest crushes. She's sure to be a hot cake on the S/S 08 runways and has actually proven right already now. She's graced the Numero 85 cover together with Caroline Trentini. Just like that, out of the blue. Isn't that quite something? But who's to blame? Isn't she gorgeous? She's just in time to ride along on the wave of Catherine McNeil's nouveau-sexy. Red hot, so now, so starquality. I can't wait to see what happens to her come September.

Dale Magazine 16: July 2007

Oh July, July! The month of couture....and if we may believe the words in the press from these past few weeks it's going to be one of the most exciting couture weeks ever. Valentino celebrates 40 years in the biz and Galliano celebrates 60 years of New Look at the Versailles palace. I can't wait...but alas, tonight I'll go on vacation to Croatia and I doubt I'll have a lot of acces there to the internet. So when I'll get back, I am in for a huge surprise! But even if I am not here, July still needs a cover. So here's one hell of a Power Woman! Elsa Sylvan is celebrating her strong womanhood in a more than cool pose. Enjoy the Summer, people!

Feature: Cruise Should Be About One Thing

Well, aside from sunglasses, bathing suits and a weird hat or two, the Cruise/Resort collection should all have one thing in common: flirty, breezy, summerdresses which are suitable for a walk on the beach and for a night out. Plus, they should be expensive with a capital E - because, hey, we are talking St. Tropez here! Here are some of my favourite cruisedresses from the shows that have been held thusfar.
Badgley Mischka

Showstoppers: Chanel Cruise 2008

Check out the video right hereéo-12098-103-art.htm on online French Vogue. I didn't necessarily like what Karl showed clothewise, but it was quite the spectacle as he pulled out two Chanel printed jets in an LAX setting. Hoo-ha location planning!

News: Dior Couture To Show In Versailles

Here's some wonderful news via wwd:

GALLIANO'S GETTING BUSY JOHN GALLIANO is gearing up for one hell of a party. As Christian Dior prepares for its 60th anniversary this summer, rumour has it the British designer will stage a one-off couture show on July 2, inside Versaille's stunning Orangerie. According to WWD, models have already been booked and instructed to arrive an enormous eight hours before showtime - now that's a lot of hair and make-up. No stranger to fashion, the exact location was chosen for a Dior "Matrix"-themed couture show back in 1999. The palace itself, which hadn't permitted a fashion shoot for over 25 years, also miraculously opened its doors to the American Vogue team last year, for the memorable Kirsten Dunst cover shoot inspired by Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. If you can't make it to France for the show, John will also be making his way to London to throw a Champagne reception with British Vogue, at the V&A, during London Fashion Week on September 18. One of the world's most passionate ambassadors for the survival and genius of Haute Couture, Gallliano will be celebrating the gallery's opening of its aptly named exhibition, The Golden Age of Couture.

Naturally, I cannot awesome does this sound? Rumor also has it that there will be a fully installed choir and orchestra to do the music. That is said to be the last wish of Steven Robinson - Galliano's partner in crime who recently died - concerning the coming couture show. If Galliano won't go for the obvious, which would be a Marie Antoinette inspired collection, then this couture show (which will by the way mark the 60th anniversary of the groundbreaking New Look collection by Monsieur Dior himself) will be absolutely amazing. On the downside, I will be so so late for the party, because on July 2nd I will be on holiday in Croatia, only to return 10 days later. Damn it! I hope there'll be some internetcafes there, because I so cannot miss this!!

Dale Magazine 15: June 2007

Finally a cover that is posted in time! Anywho, June is one of my favourite months of the year, because it's that month just between Summer and Spring. So it's not too hot, just perfectly warm and nature is at it's greenest. So for June I had to use one of my favourite pictures of the past few weeks for the cover of Dale Mag 15. And that has to be this divine picture of Canadian Alana Zimmer. How perfect can it be? Who knew Mary could be totally fashionable? Well, here's the proof! The only suitable reaction to seeing this pic would be Holy Mother Of Couture!

Highlight: Escorting Jean-Paul Gaultier

You know that you officially are a muse when you get to escort Jean-Paul Gaultier to the Cannes Filmfestival...twice! So yay for Morgane Dubled. Doesn't she look spectacular with that smile on her. You go girl!

You Fall, You Get Up

It was quite the scandal when Milana Keller stumbled and fell numerous times only to be escorted of the runway by a bodyguard at the Dior cruise show two weeks ago. Rumours existed that she might've been a tad bit drunk when she entered the runway. I refuse to believe this and think that the impossible shoes are a sufficient explanation. Anyhwho, her fall might've been a sensational one but it's only grown my love for Milana!

Here's the showcard I made for her back when the shows were in February. She was still Milana Bogolepova at all her agencies back then, but she married and the agencies adjusted her name to Keller. I just love this sexy blonde woman who has an awesome runwaywalk and totally aced the Dior couture show in January by the way. Love love love her!
