New Faces F/W 2011: Madelene

Our first New Faces feature for this upcoming show season is for the sensational Madelene from Sweden. Not only does her unique style blow us away, she also possesses a confidence that amps up everyone else's energy around her. If you are interested, do give her brilliant blog (The URL of which is named for when she worked in Singapore) a gander! But in the meantime, check out her answers to our questionnaire.

1) How would you describe New York?
Winter-wonderland? Other than that it is amazing...the city never sleeps! That's one thing I like: always people in circulation.

2) What are you wearing to stay warm in these freezing temperatures?
My fur coat and lots and lots of clothes layering underneath it.

3) What is your favorite word? Least favorite word?
"Iloveyou" is a good one, that's one word right? Hm, most unpleasant word...that's a hard one. Maybe sore feet. In Swedish it's one word, "Skoskav". 

4) What was the last movie you watched? What did you think about it?
Despicable Me, saw it on the flight to New York, and it is such a cute movie. I love the little girl Agnes.

5) What was the best birthday gift you ever received?
A gold bracelet, which I got on my 19th from my lovely boyfriend. Unfortunately I lost it after just 2 weeks...oops! I have a new one now that's exactly the same.

6) Tell us the FIRST thing that comes to mind when you see each of the following words:

Black - is the color of ALL my clothes basically. Sad but true. 
Models -  are awfully gorgeous! 
Coffee - is to be drunk black. No other way. 
Marilyn - is the best agency in NYC. Love you guys! (Aw, thanks!)
Rabbit - coat! My sister has a black one which is amazing. I'm so envious. 
Runway - me, in one week I guess. Heard that you always remember your first season. So excited!!!
Snow - is suppose to be in Sweden not New York city!
Door - ...? My mind went totally blank. Haha. Pass.

Y-3 Spring/Summer 2011 Campaign
Ph. Jacob Sutton

As the latest model representative of Yohji Yamamoto's collaborative effort with Adidas, Bo is the definition of cool. The campaign was lensed in London by Jacob Sutton, and the sporty chic styling has us clamoring for a black vest-crisp white shirt look as the weather begins to get warmer.

Brooklyn Decker: Easy to Love

 Esquire US (Cover and Feature) // February 2011
Ph. Yu Tsai

 "When Brooklyn Decker walks toward you, the world feels a little bit of all right. She brings promise with her."
Read the full article here.

This month, Esquire gives every one of its readers a better idea of why all of us adore Brooklyn so much. Beyond her beauty, she is one of the sweetest and funniest girls alive, and she easily lights up the agency every time she walks in. Yes, she is still improving her culinary skills (As the article says), but as she is a fast learner, we're sure we'll be invited over for a delicious feast - all devised by her and her alone - in no time.

P.S. Don't forget to check out her upcoming film, Just Go With It, with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, premiering everywhere February 21st!

Liu Wen: Retrospective



"Coco Chanel"
Vogue China // February 2011
Ph. Victor Demarchelier // Stylist: Nicoletta Santoro

We take a trip down memory lane with Liu Wen's latest editorial, which features all Chanel Haute Couture pieces from both past and present. Whichever signature piece she wears, she exudes nothing but elegance and sophistication. And it is only appropriate for Liu Wen to represent the venerable fashion house, as Karl Lagerfeld was one of the designers who gave her career a jump start.

2010: The Last Days

For their final nights of 2010, some of our girls traveled to great locales, whether it be home or a vacation spot. Below, two of them share their personal experience through their own photos. We hope all of our blog readers also enjoyed your respective holidays and went into 2011 with a blast!

From Chantal Stafford-Abbott:
"A kid jumping of the board onto the frozen lake after a nice sauna! right by my house [in Canada]."

"My cousin Francois eating our favourite winter snack!"

"Me standing in front of the big x mas tree [in NYC]!" (Taken by Marcel Castenmiller)

From Constance Jablonski:

 "I went to Disneyland in Paris first for New Year's Eve (As you see, it's the castle of sleeping beauty all lit at night. The park was open all night!)  And then I went for a couple of days to Marrakech [in Morocco] (That explains the camel ride ...)."

As part of the young, up-and-coming Victoria's Secret brigade, Erin is absolutely smashing in her latest cover and story. It's truly amazing how far she has come since her midwest beginnings and when she first stepped into our offices, and we couldn't be more proud. Her path towards becoming a Supermodel is on track!
