It’s easy to chart which girls are walking the best shows based off numbers, but who are fashion luminaries really noticing?

Inside International Model Apartments

Laura Andrea Kell

Laura Andrea kell writing for Styleite:



It sounds like something straight out of MTV: Take a bunch of young and beautiful people from all walks of life and move them into shared living quarters. Put them in stressful situations. Have them compete against each other. Typical reality show formula, right?

That’s basically what life is like as a model living in agency apartments around the world: zero privacy, shared bedrooms, exorbitant rent rates, and underage roommates that speak minimal English are all the norm.

Models & Actors Diversification

That's Cara in the official 'Paper Towns' Movie Poster. And that's Shailene Woodley for US Elle April 2015 by Michael Thompson.

Models are recognizing the difference between being a model and an actor: One is being famous in this industry (for the most part), the other being famous to the whole wide world. Also the money is a whole lot more if you make it as an actress.

Actors also recognize the value of modeling. Both monetarily and keeping their face fresh between movies.

In the finance world they call this diversifying.

And that's why Karlie could have recently left VS: to pay attention to acting. It's now rumored she's gotten her self a role in Zoolander 2; a role supposedly Gigi declined.

Lara Stone & David Walliams Split

2010-05-17-article1274036643541099B238D000005DC561212_636x499

Daily Mail, via The Sun:


A new report claims David Walliams has split from his model wife Lara Stone.

According to The Sun newspaper, the 43-year-old comedian and his 31-year-old model spouse - the mother of his son Alfred, who was born in 2012 - have agreed on a trial separation.
The publication reports that Lara left their London home on Tuesday night, leaving David 'devastated'.

...

According to The Sun, Lara took Alfred and the couple's dog Bert with her when she left their North London home.

Big Name VS Models Quitting Due To Small Pay?

Karlie Kloss VS

Miranda Kerr - Out 2013

Karlie Kloss - Out 2015
Doutzen Kroes - Out 2015

My opinion is these models don't need VS anymore, especially for the amount of money estimated below. They have become bigger than what VS can offer them. If anything the brand's image could be dragging them down at this point—if they want to go on becoming their own brands. Girls stop wanting to play with barbie at some point in their lives.

As a side note, the TV ratings of the VS Show in December vs. the swimsuit special they had last month: 9 Million vs. 4 million.



Model Management:


...is the lack of time the only reason the angels are flying away from Victoria’s Secret? The roumors are that nowadays, the VS models are being paid around $100,000, which is much less than the top VS models such as Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks who required millions! The $100,000 paycheck is apperently not enough for the 50 days a year required work and for all the travelling and promotion of VS. This makes the sudden departure of the angels understandable.

FT: Anatomy of a catwalk show — and how the model industry works


Once the models have arrived in London, there is then a live casting, where they are optioned before the final process: fit to confirm — “this is where the model is either confirmed or cancelled — it’s all about the look working.” For fittings, models are paid a flat fee of £50 per hour, plus 20 per cent agent’s fee.

Once the models have arrived in London, there is then a live casting, where they are optioned before the final process: fit to confirm — “this is where the model is either confirmed or cancelled — it’s all about the look working.” For fittings, models are paid a flat fee of £50 per hour, plus 20 per cent agent’s fee.

The rates that models are paid varies dramatically, and in London — where the British Fashion Council sets many of the rates — is particularly dependent on the show. Fees start at about £100 for a first-time designer, although models can get “£30,000-plus for just one show”, says Jean-Marie. At that rate, it is likely that the model is on an exclusive deal, permitting her to work only for that one designer worldwide. Often, a model will appear in shows on the understanding that she will then be cast in a campaign.

In New York, Marc Jacobs pays in trade, allowing models to pick pieces from his line, while Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta are believed to be the best payers — with models referring to the latter as “Oscar pays the Renta”.

Emilie Evander

Emilie Evander

Scouted at 11, now 15. Following her braces coming off, this month she landed Alexander Wang Show, followed by Gucci exclusive, followed by interview with style.com. So, we're keeping an eye on where she goes from here. She's with Why Not Milan, Major Paris, and I believe Wilhelmina NY.

The New Flagship Girls As We Enter 2015 & Following NYFW

  Stella_lucia_blog Stella_lucia_blog
From my vantage point, these 6 girls are some of the new flagship new faces tantalizing, or starting to tantalize the industry lately, especially following NYFW. They are of the highest pedigree—model wise, not fame wise. They follow girls such as Anna Ewers, Lexi Boling, Vanessa Moody, Julia Bergshoeff, Binx Walton, Ine Neefs, & Maartje Verhoef, from the past 12+ months, and it's in this light and comparison that I view them. Other standout lately, that have caught more interest, though not new, have been Julia van Os, Aneta Pajak,  & Angel Rutledge.

What happens from here on out depends on their agent's management of them, their personality, luck, and/or shift in taste.

They are:
