Show packages from the major modeling agencies are starting to arrive, including one that’s hotly debated among model-watchers: Paul Rowland’s first package since taking over at Ford.

On Set With Satan

-------

A room full of agnostic fashion types is perhaps not the most obvious audience for a show of religious-themed art. But that’s who was on hand for the opening of Paul Rowland’s The Transformation of Enrique Miron as El Diablo in Chelsea last night. Rowland is better known as the founder of Women and Supreme Model Management and the newly minted women’s division director of Ford, but for this, his second show, he turned his camera away from the ladies. Instead, he shot male model Enrique Miron dressed up (or, frequently, dressed down) as a brawny Satan in Dante-esque scenarios. The centerpiece: a ten-foot portrait of Miron nailed to the cross. “I was raised religious and my mother is devout, but as I got older, I faded away from that,” Miron said. Even so, “it felt empowering” to be up on that cross.

“I felt like not many people really embraced the idea of Satan,” said Rowland, in his ever-present knit beanie (pictured, center, with Italo Zucchelli, Enrique Miron, and Steven Gan). “They always tend to kind of run from it or not deal with it,” so he chose to “celebrate” the guy. Of course, nothing draws a crowd like a party, and plenty of Rowland’s girls—including Hanne Gaby Odiele, Rose Cordero, Alana Zimmer, and Ranya Mordanova—showed up to help with that celebration. “I don’t really believe in God, so for me, it’s just fun,” said Inna Pilipenko, who sported a Zara blouse and Chanel bag and shoes for the demonic occasion.

Religious views aside, many attendees might have been preoccupied with a slightly more earthly matter: Rowland’s recent move to Ford. “You know, I define myself—it’s not like an agency defines me,” Rowland said. How did Women and Supreme feel about the move? “I’m a creative person, and on some level they understood that I needed to do something else. You know, they weren’t completely happy, but there was no great drama.” He noted that Ford “offered me a good deal across the board.” Not a deal made with the Devil, presumably, but he and Rowland do seem to be on good terms.

The size debate continues: An Arizona State University study finds that plus-size models don’t make consumers feel any better, and don’t necessarily drive sales. In other words, get ready for about a million more ad-page waifs. [Huffington Post]
