Adriana Lima: The Time is Today

Fashion icon and super-model Adriana Lima is BACK in front of the camera and partnering with acclaimed fashion photographer Russell James for her first ever Live Stream event. Lima and James will stream from the set of her photo shoot for James’ ongoing “Nomad Two Worlds” project, which is dedicated to preserving indigenous rights and creating awareness for child health research. Lima had been on hiatus from the modeling world for 9 months following the birth of her first child.

Broadcasting live from New York City on Wednesday, April 28th at 6PM Eastern Time, the duo will team up to give viewers an up-close and personal look behind the scenes of a real time art shoot, while James will narrate some of the insider secrets of what it takes to successfully execute a such a project.

The live streaming photo shoot will also mark the World DipTrax video premiere of Benny Bennassi’s remix of the Jimi Hendrix classic “Purple Haze”, also starring Adriana Lima and directed by Russell James. The red hot video showcases the intense workouts Lima used to get her body back in supermodel shape.

Viewers will have a chance to participate in the stream by asking questions to Adriana via Ustream’s Social Stream. Adriana will react to questions from viewers in real time.

Constance Jablonski & Liu Wen: Estée Lauder Press Collective

"...Liu’s porcelain complexion makes her the perfect skin care advocate, while Constance would be great for hair or makeup."

Grazia Daily
"...Tom Pecheux as EL's new Creative Makeup Director...told us backstage at fashion week in February that Constance is his favourite model!"

"Two of the hottest faces in fashion have just signed with cosmetic giant Estée Lauder."

"With their pristine looks and natural refinement, both models are perfect representatives of 21st century beauty..."

"And for this news, Estee Lauder deserves a bit of heralding. Not only is Constance the first French model to sign with by the beauty brand, but Liu is the first Chinese model. We say, bravo."

New York Mag
"A cosmetics contract is the Holy Grail of modeling — the single highly lucrative booking that all models strive for after years of toiling away on low-paying runway and editorial jobs. As two of fashion's most desirable faces of the moment, they couldn't have been hired by Estée Lauder at a better time."

"Estee Lauder is about to add some spice to its stable of girl-next-door-looking beauties."

Thank you to all for the coverage and support!

"[Craig] McDean shot two models that day: Constance Jablonski, the blonde teenager from Lille whose brother wrote to a modeling agency that his sister was the most beautiful girl in France (They agreed), and China's Liu Wen, who entered a modeling competition in high school with no greater goal than winning the grand prize -- a laptop -- and has since become the biggest thing to come out of her country since Ziyi Zhang. Neither is American, but once the film came in, both were immediately chosen to represent what is perhaps the most thoroughly American brand."

SHOWTIME: Mi Ami at Cakeshop

Disco shred experimental spazz punks Mi Ami bring the very essence of "heavy" to the Cakeshop tonight. This San Francisco-based trio's volatile and barely restrained rhythmic assault is an uncomfortably personal and a calculated live hysteria not to be missed. Mi Ami's sophmore LP, Steal Your Face, was released on April 6th on Thrill Jockey (Thrill 237).

Back Porch Video

Before the explosion of the blogosphere and Youtube, the “Porch Jockies” of Dearborn, Michigan delivered youth culture as a “Saved by the Bell” at a Black Flag show hysteria. Back Porch Video was one of the first cable television-based music video programs, premiering in January 28, 1984. The Back Porch Video Youtube page has a killer archive of footage from the historic late night “hardcore hour” and beautiful low-fi medleys of the whole BPV crew.
