Fashionista:


Now, IMG is taking its international hunt to the next level by partnering with W magazine on the glossy's first-ever model search, which officially kicks off on Thursday. By tagging photos with #WmagModelSearch and #WLYG, hopefuls can have their photos seen (and judged) by the likes of Edward Enninful, W's style and fashion director, as well as famed photographer Mario Sorrenti, who both have worked with the likes of Lara Stone, Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and many more over the years. If there is a duo who can truly launch a model's career into the stratosphere, it's this one.

“W is known for discovering fresh faces, spotlighting who’s next, and nurturing new talent, so we’re thrilled to team up with IMG for our first-ever model search,” said Enninful in a release about the competition. “Social media provides models with a new platform for expression and it is more powerful than ever — it can truly propel their careers — and we’re excited to be part of this movement.”

Cathy Horyn Get's the Juergen Teller Treatment

BoF brings you an exclusive excerpt from a 15,000-word conversation:


I’m fascinated by how fashion critics are able to assimilate and pass judgement in what used to be a matter of hours, but is now probably a matter of minutes, maybe even seconds.

First of all, I should say I don’t go to a lot of shows, not nearly as many as the other people do, because I only want to write about the newsmakers. I don’t want to feel like I have to go, believe me I’ve done that. But when you’re seeing these collections, season after season, you can sit at a show and know in a heartbeat what’s new, what’s striking, what’s newsworthy.

Is 'Voguerunway.com' Needed?

Vogue

News broke this week that Condé Nast is shuttering Style.com as we know it, and turning the domain name into an eCommerce site. This was followed by WWD reporting that Layoffs have begun:


The hammer is beginning to fall at Style.com.

The fashion site is being spun into Condé Nast’s soon to launch e-commerce site, and that transition has already translated to layoffs, about five, including a photo editor and its fashion market director.

Style.com users seeking to access fashion news and runway coverage will now be directed to Voguerunway.com, part of U.S. Vogue’s Web site.


Politics at play:


Sources told WWD that the transition wasn’t surprising since Condé Nast artistic director and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour decided to expand her magazine’s digital presence. Style.com, which ironically won the People’s Choice award for Fashion & Beauty on Monday, was seen as a direct competitor to Vogue.


Heil Anna.

Now:


Style.com users seeking to access fashion news and runway coverage will now be directed to Voguerunway.com, part of U.S. Vogue’s Web site.


Fashion news and runway coverage; Isn't that what Vogue.com does at the moment? Why create Voguerunway.com then, instead of folding things into Vogue.com directly?

It seems there's going to be some differentiation coming our way, but long term, a few years from now, I predict everything will be brought together under Vogue.com. I think this Voguerunway is a mistake, a decision lacking focus and clarity. What they should have done is say: hey Style.com readers, head on over to Vogue.com, we're now a shopping website.
