Becoming A Supermodel (Part 1) | SupermodelBlogger

Read about Emily’s story and her plans for a system of exchange and support of models that places no fault to make changes, with communication and anonymity. I find her to be an amazing friend, an intelligent adversary and am constantly surprised by her fresh outlook towards new ideas. A good read for any model, aspiring model and parent. Can’t wait for Part 2…..

Models and Magazine Covers – W Magazine – Steven Meisel and Edward Enninful

It is a big deal in America when we see beautiful images of models on the covers of fashion magazines. And it is even more interesting when a magazine interviews them in a meaningful way. I applaud W Magazine today.

For many years, this was the goal of a model and her agent. It was the pinnacle of star power and offered cosmetic opportunities along with name and face recognition. We watched as it slowly slipped away to celebrities and Hollywood who arrived with a movie to sell and therefore, something to talk about. And this sold magazines.

That being said, this is fashion. At the starting point of creation and introduction on the runway, we imagine designs on our “uber” human fashion models. They glamourize the clothes. Despite our celebrity driven society and our over accessibility to fashion and “labels”, we must recognize, the fashion we dream about is usually on a model.

The covers of W magazine for the month of July will be talked about. Steven Meisel and Edward Enninful created amazing images of two models that may be our modern version of “super” and that Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls have interesting things to say.

If you agree, BUY it. Don’t just read it on line and think that is good enough. It is not. Like all else, this is about what sells. And I miss the days when models sold fashion and cosmetics, all the time and to everyone. I miss the magic.
