If you fell in love with him in Marie Antoinette, here’s an interview with male model Jamie Dornan. It’s nice to see that he’s really down to earth! Although I don’t know what is going on with his teeth.

The fourth girl is Sessilee Lopez! A little bit about  her:

She signed with IMG Models in 2004. She was born on January 4, 1989. She has twin sister that’s only 5′ 6″.  She’s American. In 2008, she might have been dating Kanye West? 

I can’t believe I forgot to mention her! Sorry about that..anyways here’s a video I found of the shoot!

Models: Abbey Lee

After browsing through many of the fashion week collections, I noticed a recurring face. While obviously models can walk for more than one collection, this face seemed to stand out amongst the other waifs.  It was the model Abbey Lee. I went through several collections and she always seemed to be wearing the best outfit.  I may be able to brag about knowing the names of models that repeatedly appear on the pages of Vogue such as Chanel Iman, Doutzen Kroes or Hilary Rhoda, but there are some established models that I have never heard of. Abbey is one of these girls. 

Winning the Girlfriend Covergirl Model Search in Australia in 2004, Abbey modeled for campaigns such as Levi’s and H&M.  She soon moved to New York in 2007 and signed with Next Management. Despite a fainting stint at the Alexander McQueen show last Spring, Abbey has maintained her success. She has been photographed by Mario Testino, Craig McDean and even Terry Richardson (for Purple magazine’s Fall 2009 Issue). Known for her tattoos, nose piercing and gap between her two front teeth, Abbey is a force to be reckoned with. I didn’t even know that she modeled for my favorite 2008 Gucci show until now!

Here are some pictures of the Abbey Lee…

V Magazine’s Summer Issue

If you love beautiful things and beautiful people, Go out and buy the magazine right now! I may be a little late on the band wagon as the issue came out at the beginning of summer, but it’s not too late! It’s still summer and the issue won’t ever cool down.  The issue focuses on the history of swimsuits.  Many of our favorite models such as Daria Werbowy, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Erin Wasson,  Natalia Vodianova, Giselle Bundchen, Raquel Zimmerman and Doutzen Kroes are featured in a swimsuit spread by Mario Testino.  The results of the photo shoot are just mesmerizing!

Erin Wasson

Erin Wasson is a force to be reckoned with.  She started as a simple girl from Texas and soon managed to appear on the covers of numerous fashion magazines.  Not only is Erin an extremely successful model, but with her line for x RVCA she has become a designer.  Her tank tops and t-shirts can be seen on very famous celebrities.  When Alexander Wang made it big with his first collection, Erin Wasson, was his stylist.  She helped craft Wang’s distressed, innovative technique his collection is known for.  Being a stylist, Wasson has a definitive eye for what is fashionable.  Her casual sexy cool can be seen in her everyday life.

Within just 9 short months, this model has managed to become one of the industry’s top it girls.  Born in the Dominican Republic, Arlenis simply walked into Marilyn Modeling Agency and was booked on the spot.  Starting on the runway for Banana Republic a few months after her agency booking, Arlenis was soon walking run way shows for Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta.  At 20 years of age, she appeared in a Vogue editorial with the famous photographer Mario Testino.  Since I’m a sucker for the style profiles of models off duty, here are some of Arlenis’ best looks…

Favorites from the Met Ball..

Sorry I haven’t been posting recently. I’m struggling as it’s finals week, but I just had to devote at least one post to the Met Ball that was last night.  The dresses/ensembles were simply too beautiful to put off. While the theme was “models as muses,” I think more than just the models’ outfits were muse-worthy. Here are some of my favs…some commentary included…    (photos: style.com)

 

Ashley Olsen in her own line The Row (I love her new haircut, very Gwenyth)

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson (she's wearing Chanel Haute Couture) I have to say I'm always a fan of Chanel's white lace (remember Maggie Gyllenhall's white lace with pink bow?)

Darya Werbowy in Balmain (simple but I really like the ankle boot. Balmain is very chic right now. I'm surprised she didn't choose a higher shoulder)

Mary Kate Olsen in a vintage Christian Lacroix Haute Couture (at first I didn't really like this, but I think the way that she did her hair/makeup makes it look very ethereal and quite beautiful)

Erin Wasson in Phi and Lady Amanda Harlech (I really like Erin Wasson's look. It's not exactly Met Ball appropriate, but I love the edge she always carries with her. The paints look very Alexander Wang.)
