Frankie Rayder Takes A Turn


Is Alexander Wang a magnet for supes? The likes of Trish Goff, Tasha Tilberg, and Natasa Vojnovic stepped out for his Fall ’09 show, and we hear that the designer has nabbed Frankie Rayder for his Spring ’10 performance this Saturday. With the exception of appearances at Michael Kors last season and Givenchy a year ago, the Wisconsin beauty and better half to Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers has been mostly retired from the runway scene. We can’t help but wonder if lil’ sis Missy is behind this one—she starred in Wang’s Spring lookbook, after all.

Blasblog: Welcome Back, Ladies


Some of my favorite moments from the fashion week that was were seeing so many old-school supermodels back on the runway: Tasha Tilberg, Hannelore Knuts, Natasa Vojnovic, and Trish Goff at Alexander Wang; Diana Dondoe and Jamie Bochert at Marc Jacobs (Bochert surfaced at Rodarte, too); and Carmen Kass, who opened Michael Kors, followed by Frankie Rayder and, later, Caroline Ribeiro. I asked Douglas Perrett, a New York-based casting agent who chronicles his placements on cult-fave site
Confessions of a Casting Director, if he thought we might be harking back to pre-recession faces for nostalgia’s sake. “Totally,” he said, adding that Ana Claudia Michels is having a Givenchy moment right now, and Jenny Shimizu will be a judge on Bravo’s Make Me a Supermodel. “We are indebted [to] the nineties right now,” noted Perrett. Earlier in the week, I caught up with Tilberg, who said she can’t help but be flattered by the attention. “Alex [Wang] said such nice things to me,” she recounted, “so it was fun to come back to New York and do another show—but one or two is enough. I don’t miss all that chaos.” Perrett doesn’t think the trend will continue in the next few weeks, however. “I think Europe will be all about the new faces,” he predicts. What do you think, Style Filers? Do you want to see more old-school supes in the weeks to come?

blasblog from paris: the backstage brouhaha for riccardo tisci


If one were to measure the success of a fashion show by the number of people who crush into the backstage area after it’s over—which, in my opinion, anyway, is a fairly accurate barometer—it’s a safe bet that Riccardo Tisci’s show for Givenchy was the hottest ticket yet this week. After all, the likes of Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Margherita Missoni, and Vanessa Traina don’t normally wait in long, pushy queues. Once backstage, the crowd of well-wishers and merrymakers continued. Restoin-Roitfeld went hunting for the black patent leather Mickey Mouse-esque headbands that had just debuted on the runway; Mariacarla Boscono, a friend of Tisci’s for years, chatted with her parents until the designer finished attending to his merrymakers; and Natalia Vodianova passed around pictures of her three kids—she told me she hasn’t decided if she’s having any more—while she had her extensions removed. In another indication of Tisci’s sway with fashion folk, the models weren’t eager to leave at all, and were even willing to chat to journalists about their love of the collection. “I came here just for this show,” Frankie Rayder said, adding that she hadn’t done a show in four years and so had the occasional nervous attack on her way to Paris. “I was going to go home tomorrow, but Riccardo told me he’s doing a party. Which I guess I have to stay for. He’s amazing.”
