These Are a Few of My Favorite... High Fashion Models

I got sicky sick at work yesterday. Not the 'oh my gosh, get me to a bathroom' sick. But the kind of sick that creeps up on you, and then all of a sudden you realize that everything aches, your head is pounding, and it hurts to swallow. It's a bit like tequila...   Also, 3 very important people in my life were at the doctor or the hospital yesterday (including my bigdoggie Kaiser). Luckily, everyone is okay now and I don't feel like I got hit with a sack of bricks anymore; but, I definitely could use a pick-me-up. That pick-me-up is blogging about my favorite things. Today's topic: high fashion models.

I look at fashion magazine upon fashion magazine every month. It's part of my job, but I also just really enjoy magazines. Whoever said 'print will soon be obsolete' is dead wrong. In my opinion, there is unmatched excitement in getting your hands on a brand new, crisp September issue of Vogue. I need to physically flip through pages, smell the fragrance samples, and dog-ear my favorite ads. I can't do that online. But I seriously digress...

What Tyra has taught me (just kidding) is that the person wearing the garment is just as important as the garment itself. You wouldn't put Kathy Griffin in a Christian Dior gown, would you? No. Here are the Top 5 High Fashion models I deem worthy of the kickass model award:

COCO ROCHA





She's magnetic, she's a chameleon, and she could model in a trashbag if she had to. I love the poses she comes up with, and I've never come across a photo of her that didn't suck me in for a moment.

KARLIE KLOSS




She basically models for everyone (Dior, Hermes, Oscar de la Renta), and she really models with her eyes. Her eyebrows do the talking, and her mouth backs them up. Fun fact: she was a ballerina and was born in 1992 (which makes me feel old)...

JESSICA STAM




She just reminds me of a little pixie with her upturned eyes and cute nose. So ethereal. She even kills on the runway. Did you know she's Candian?


NATALIA VODIANOVA



The girl may have been around the proverbial block, but she's by no means stale. Short hair, long hair, heavy makeup, no makeup... the girl can rock it all. Her portfolio is mind-boggling. She was featured in 2 of my favorite American Vogue stories - an Alice in Wonderland editorial...


And an editorial in which Natalia portrayed a series of famous models from the past...


If you never read about her humble Russian background, it will make you love her even more.

LARA STONE



I love that this lil Dutch girl actually has a figure - boobs, hips, etc. Very sexy, and the gap in her front teeth is charming, I think. She can be very severe, but she can also be soft. (Tyra rule# 48 - a top model must have the ability to be both). I fell in love with her when she was featured in a Brigette Bardot-inspired editorial in W Magazine...



I felt like I owed it to these ladies to pay them tribute. After all, they are part of what makes me love fashion so much. Cheers to you, models!

  5. This applies to both modelling work, and visiting agencies for interviews. Modelling jobs don't take place in your living room, so travelling is an integral part of being a model. review
