Mario Testino has photographed everyone from Joan Smalls and Gisele Bündchen to Jay Z and Jennifer Lawrence—plus, he’s lensed countless covers and editorials, for everyone (and we mean everyone) from V Magazine to Vanity Fair. The legendary Peruvian photographer was not, however, on Instagram—until now, that is. We well know that if there’s any place to leak behind-the-scenes footage, it’s on the Internet. And with his esteemed roster of collaborators, who knows what filtered finds Testino’s account might bring. Needless to say, he deserves a “Follow.”
Girls. Or at least that’s what Forbes‘ latest report suggests…about the modeling world. While 2013′s top-earning female super—Gisele Bündchen (who else?)—raked in a cool $42 million between September 2012 and September 2013, the world’s most money-making male model, Sean O’Pry (of Versace, H&M, Kenzo, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Spicebomb campaign fame) made only $1.5M in the same timeframe. Not that we’re terribly surprised—Beyoncé’s rarely wrong.
Move over, Cara. Fashion just got another set of supermodel pipes. Gisele Bündchen lends her voice to H&M’s fall campaign, covering The Kinks’ “All Day and All of the Night.” The Telegraph reports that for every track purchased on iTunes, H&M will make a donation to UNICEF. It’s nice to see the world’s highest-paid supermodel supporting a cause. Touchdown, Mrs. Brady.
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 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” »
