The new comers of Fall 08′

May 17, 2008

Who do you think will become a hit or a one hit wonder?

Amanda Laine
Caught me eyes… with a face that looks like it has came straight out of a Byzantine painting. Absolutely unique features.
Turning point: Opened Miu Miu and closed Vuitton, probably the biggest star in Paris
++ She is statuesque at 5ft11.5
– – Can do Prada and Balenciaga, but lacks the kind of va-va-voom for Versace or Gucci. In short terms: classy > sexy.

Abbey Lee Kershaw
Caught my eyes… the Olsen twins look-a-like?
Turning point: Nab an exclusive contract with Mario Testino
++ Has a babyface like fellow aussie Gemma Ward that still proves to be popular in the industry
– – Didn’t walk for coveted shows like Prada, Miu Miu, and Balenciaga

Georgina Stojilkovic
Caught me eyes… with her poutier-than-Angelina-Jolie lips
Turning point: Appeared on the cover of Numero #93
++ 63 shows in her first season!

Aline Weber
Caught my eyes… when she opened Balenciaga
Turning point: Has been walking for small shows since Fall 05′, she finally got her breakthrough three years later.
++ Benetton! D&G! M by Missoni! Moschino! Marc Jacobs (rumoured)!

Malin Ones
Caught my eyes… when she walked Calvin Klein
Turning point: Featured in Italian Elle and as an up-and-comer
– – At 23, a little too late to start out.

Anna Gushina
Caught my eyes… she looks like Angela Lindvall
Turning point: features Gushina as one of “IMG’s Power Generation”
++ a French Vogue editorial!

Kate Somers
Caught my eyes… freckles!
Turning point: A runner-up at Ford Supermodel of the World contest last year, but is apparently doing a lot better than the winner, Hyoni Kang.
– – needs to work her expressions a little more in editorials

    I liked Alice Burdeu the best! I think Marc by Marc Jacobs might be a more probable bet for Aline. Celebs just rule all over the main line.

    Amanda Laine is a typical Prada girl – dead eyes & dead face, androgynous and blond. Perfect for Balenciaga too.

    Isn’t Abbey Lee Kershaw a (Australian) reality show winner? Love her round baby face.

    My favorite of the lot is Aline Webber. She looks like Claudia Schiffer. Gorgeous!

    Love Anna Kushina too.

    I loved Georgina Stojilkovic, Alice Burdeu and Abbey Lee. Aline W. has an ugly nose, but I loved her bone structure.

    Georgina Stojilkovic is my favorite new comer, i see in her some similarities with Michaela Kocianova
