Catwalk Watch: Andrew Weir

-------

Before a model hits the runway—and before she snags her first editorial, her first ad campaign, and her first billboard—she’s got to make it past the sharp eyes of fashion’s casting directors, who are tasked with finding the perfect girls for designers’ exacting visions. In our fashion week series, the industry’s top casting gurus share their thoughts on who we’ll be seeing this fashion week—and beyond.

Andrew Weir casts Thakoon, Rebecca Taylor, Jen Kao, and Rachel Zoe in New York this season. Below, he weighs in on a few of his favorite new and new-to-us faces.


Maria Tomaszewska at FORD (left): “[She] has a neoclassical feel, and reminds me of an [Jean-Auguste-Dominique] Ingres painting.”

Maja Hansen at WOMEN (center): “She is strikingly beautiful, like a 1980′s Vogue cover girl.”

Ilse De Boer at IMG (right): “Has a powerful combination of features, making her one of the strongest faces I’ve seen in a long time.”
