Canadian catwalker Anais Pouliot (pictured) is the star of Carven’s Fall 2012 ad campaign. In the images, lensed once again by photographer Viviane Sassen, the model shows off a series of creative director Guillaume Henry’s covetable numbers from the collection (which, as usual, had editors eagerly making their wish lists as they sat front-row at the show in March). Here, Style.com has a first look at the campaign.
Daphne Guinness is offering you the chance to buy pieces from her highly coveted wardrobe this summer. The heiress has recently set up the Isabella Blow Foundation, and all proceeds from the June 27 Christie’s auction will help support young art and fashion talent. [Vogue U.K.]
Mila Kunis will continue her role as a face of Dior. The actress recently shot her latest campaign on a boat in Paris wearing a pale pink dress. [Telegraph]
Anais Pouliot is the star of the new Terry Richardson-lensed Aldo campaign. In the photos, Pouliot sports twenties-style flapper sandals, green lace-up trainers, and brightly colored wedges. [Grazia Daily]
Net-a-Porter has approached Mary Katrantzou about adding larger sizes to her line. Katrantzou’s response? “I was looking at a size 14 [U.S. size 12] woman wearing our dress and I thought, ‘I can’t believe we don’t go bigger than that size!’ because she looked tiny.” [Racked]
Remember the heady thrill you got when a middle school teacher announced the arrival of a new transfer student? Well, that’s exactly how we feel about the crop of new faces promised each season. The countdown to NYFW has begun, and it’s only a matter of days before Fall show packages start rolling in. Who will be the next Arizona or Lindsey? Only time will tell, but for now, here’s a primer on the ones to watch next month.
A close runner-up for our Spring Top Ten list, 19-year-old Anais Pouliot (above) walked in 37 shows last season and has since had editorials in W and Vogue Nippon. The Canadian stunner with a Wixson-rivaling pout worked the pre-fall circuit like a pro. We’re willing to bet on a huge second season.
Saskia de Brauw (left) started modeling at 16 before quitting to go to art school. Now the 29-year-old Amsterdam native is back. She walked directional Spring shows like Balenciaga and Givenchy–where she’s become a house favorite (she starred in the latest ad campaign and pre-fall lookbook)–and can be found posing alongside Daphne Groeneveld in the February issue of Paris Vogue. COACD‘s Douglas Perrett summed it up nicely: “Saskia will kill it this season.”
A relative mystery until last week’s Alexander Wang ad campaign announcement, Aymeline Valade is now catching the attention of casting directors everywhere. A Balenciaga runway turn (she also posed for the pre-fall lookbook), Vogue Turkey cover, and a Craig McDean spread in the latest Interview indicates this Frenchwoman is on the fast track to supe-dom.
What, no Russians? Hardly. A cute name and even cuter face scored Pevek-born Juju Ivanyuk opening spots at Alexander McQueen and Celine. But the 18-year-old really skyrocketed during pre-fall, doing lookbooks for McQueen, Narciso Rodriguez, Philosophy, and Vera Wang. No wonder she was a shoo-in for today’s Christian Dior Haute Couture show. Check her out in Look 22.
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 new fashion week series, the industry’s top casting gurus share their thoughts on who we’ll be seeing this fashion week—and beyond.
Belgian-born Natalie Joos casts Lacoste, Cynthia Steffe, Pamela Love, and Karen Walker, among others, in New York this season. Below, she weighs in on a few of her favorite new faces.
Kirsi Pyrhonen (left) started last season in London and went on to do a few good shows in Paris. She is 16 and is from Finland. She’s never been to New York, so this will be her first season here. She is very striking and unique-looking.
Caroline Brasch Nielsen (center) started last season in Paris. This will be her first season in New York, too. She is 17 years old, from Copenhagen. She has all the elements to make it in everyone’s top list: the right proportions, a great walk, and poise.
Anais Pouliot (right) from Trump has been on people’s radars for some time. She is French and 19 years old. She’s not a part of the elite group yet but I think she’ll do well this season. She is cute and girly, but in an unusual way. I love her pout!
