Model Update: Taylor Fuchs

It's always exciting to hear when a guy snags a campaign. Unlike with the girls, not many designers tout which male models they will be using. So it's exciting when you hear that a guy has snagged a HUGE campaign and ESPECIALLY exciting to know that it is one of your favorite guys that got the job. So just in, ladies and gentleman, Taylor Fuchs is set to star in the Valentino FW08 campaign. Get excited people!

And the winner is...

Nobody I liked. The VMAN/Ford Model Search Finalists were announced, and I have to say that I am disappointed. There were so many other guys that had much more potential. As for the finalists themselves? I scrolled through every single page on entrants and did not see them once. And if I did? They didn't stand out, because obviously I don't remember them. This is not to say that AJ, Petey, and Adam are completely devoid of any model characteristics. They can be models, but I doubt their potential to be blue chip.

But what a letdown! I don't see the point of V Magazine encouraging the participation of voters if the vote count obviously plays no role in the ultimate decision. It's not like the agency conducting the search is going to let the general public tell them who to sign. They'll sign who they want. The voting just gets the participants hopes up, which only leads to them crashing and burning in the end.

VMagazine/Supreme's model search is just beginning, hopefully the results will turn out more favorable. It should be interesting- Anya Kop (excuse me, Anya Rozova)- has entered the contest and sits comfortably in the #1 position of voting glory. Do you think she has what it takes to be the latest Supreme wondergirl?

Update: Anya is no longer entered in the competition. She has either withdrawn or has been removed. It is also possible that her entry was fake.

On Hiatus

If you'd been living in my house for the past couple weeks, you'd know my computer is about to croak. It's old, my dad built it, and all my Gossip Girl Episodes are causing it to freeze. It's a PC! It shouldn't be doing this! The sudden death of my photo uploader is the first symptom of what I predict will be one big long downward spiral, and without any photos, how is anyone supposed to enjoy the lovely new faces that keep popping up all over the place?

So I'm taking a bit of a forced leave until a) my dad fixes the problem OR b) graduation (when I get my promised laptop).

But don't worry! I'm not going to leave y'all in the dark. As you may have heard, VMAN and Ford are having a model search. It's open casting, meaning just about anyone can join.

Screw rankings. Here are the guys who I think have a shot.

Renan Bonin
Barrett Pall
Alex Corses
Gabriel Scalco
Facundo Renzone
Tyler Oyer
Jhaysonn Pathak

Eat your heart out!

Model Update: Jesper Lund

The FW08 Campaigns are being assigned and I am especially looking forward to the D&G campaign! After a chaotic and sloppy SS08 campaign, D&G is picking up the slack and featuring Jesper Lund in their upcoming campaign! With a face like Jesper's, we can all expect nothing but class. I guess everybody learns from sloppy firsts, and it looks like D&G is no exception.
