Destination Summer: 10 Models Take Us on Vacation

-------

Looking to soak up the last few rays of summer sun (fashion month is only a few weeks away), models swapped their stilettos for sandals as they flocked to sand and sea to unwind—and luckily for us, they Instagrammed every moment along the way. Sporting a scuba mask, Josephine Skriver cozied up with a sea turtle, while Cora Emmanuel snapped a selfie from the clear aqua waves of her native Martinique. Anja Rubik chilled out #onaboat, inspiring a case of serious desk-side envy. Check out 10 of our favorite models’ vacation snapshots from the week, below.

Christy Turlington Is Still Super

Christy Turlington in H&M

Christy Turlington is having quite a year. After nabbing a Harper’s Bazaar cover and starring in campaigns for Prada, Jason Wu, and Calvin Klein Underwear, the 44-year-old super is now featured in H&M’s holiday ads. Turlington (who, in all her spare time, ran the New York Marathon yesterday), poses alongside Doutzen Kroes, Liu Wen, and Cora Emmanuel in the snaps. Needless to say, trimming the tree has never looked so good.

Seven Fresh Faces From the Elite Model Look Boot Camp

-------

Mary, Ross, and Ruth

For thirty years running, the Elite Model Look competition has given aspiring mannequins a chance to break into the industry. Past participants who beat out hundreds of thousands of beautiful people from more than sixty countries and went on to make it big include Gisele Bündchen, Isabeli Fontana, Constance Jablonski, Sigrid Agren, Dorothea Barth Jorgensen, Fei Fei Sun, and Cora Emmanuel, to name a few. After narrowing down this year’s U.K.-based contestants to eleven girls and eleven boys, the mega modeling agency’s London branch invited the finalists to attend a four-day boot camp, during which they received catwalk and posing training, confidence coaching, nutrition and fitness advice, styling tips, and—most important—met the bookers. Style.com asked Elite Model Look Process’s Amelia Trevette (formerly the head of image and special bookings for Elite London), who was judging and mentoring the fresh faces throughout the week, to call out her seven favorites. Learn all about the top up-and-comers and this year’s U.K. winners—May and Ruth Bell, and Ross Trevillion (above)—who will go on to compete in the international finals this November, below.

May and Ruth Bell (competing together):
“May and Ruth, our ethereal twins from Dover, are like porcelain dolls: flawless skin, ash-blond hair, and delicate features. They look almost otherworldly and are captivating both on the catwalk and in front of the camera.”

Ross Trevillion:
“Ross has an amazing look that is diverse enough to be commercial or editorial. At only sixteen, he has a maturity and presence that not a lot of his peers possess.” Continue Reading “Seven Fresh Faces From the Elite Model Look Boot Camp” »

High Society

-------

“Have you heard about The Society?” It’s a question that’s been making the rounds in model-watcher circles for what seems like a year, and now The Society is no longer a secret. After a soft launch during New York fashion week, Elite Paris’ New York outpost—not to be mistaken with the nonaligned Elite New York—officially debuted its Web site yesterday with an impressive roster of established faces, including Lindsey Wixson, Sigrid Agren, Cora Emmanuel, Mackenzie Drazan, and Ming Xi, as well as noteworthy newcomers such as Marine Deleeuw, Josephine Le Tutour, and Manuela Frey. The agency will also represent musicians, including Grace Jones, Oh Land, and Lily Rose Cooper (a.k.a. Lily Allen). “We’ve had the opportunity to be super-selective with the girls we take on rather than being so volume oriented,” a representative told Style.com. “Elite understands the value of investing in a gorgeous face.”

The Society hits the ground running with a huge history and network already in place, which contains the Elite Model Look competition—the largest source of new models in the world. The polished Web site, which was designed by Ezra Petronio and features Santiago & Mauricio-lensed animations of each girl in a grid format (kind of like a glam version of Hollywood Squares, no?), sets the tone for one of The Society’s goals, which is “to promote original editorial content and do interesting projects that converge fashion and art,” a representative said. “It’s a bit different from the standard approach,” which is exactly what the New York modeling industry needs right now. Based on initial impressions, The Society is poised to become a major force.
