Paris

Fashion week is in a few days and show packages are posted on models.com with surprises or confirmations... Surprises like Angela Lindvall switching from IMG to Women Paris and confirmations like Nimue Smit switching from Women to Next Paris !

While the new website of Marilyn Paris should be online any day now, Next Worldwide just launched its new version this week.

Should we expect any more surprises from the show package of Elite Paris ? Can't wait...

Where are now represented Zuzana Gregorova, Naomi Preizler or Heidi Harrington-Johnson ? It is going to take ages to know because of legal reasons... I hope not.

 

NY

It's all about Louie this week ! You can say or write what you want about Louie Chaban but in three years Women Management NY has really improved its board and image. Louie, as the boss of Women NY, brought with him talented bookers and faithful girls (Agyness, Karen, Cameron, Christina, Snejana or Jade) from DNA, poached major girls from IMG (Angela, Caroline, Hilary, Guinevere, Daria Strokous) and launched fantastic new faces (Fei Fei, Kristina,...). Can't wait to see the new Elite NY of Louie (and faithful booker Christiana Tran) and who will follow and who will not... Could the Elite+ Division be back ?

This move should have impact on the boards of several agencies in NY (who will replace who ?) but also in Europe... Elite NY is currently a weakened agency (after the recent major exodus) and Elite Europe has currently strong links with Marilyn NY and Ford NY... 

2011 is a crazy year for the NY model agencies ! To be continued...

In the meantime, still looking for news on the moves of Gracie Carvalho, Ali Michael (Willy ?), Ajuma, Laura Blokhina, Anna-Marya Urazhevskaya,...

...and wondering why Alyona Subottina, Julia Zimmer, Madelen de la Motte, Daga Ziober, Kristina Krivomasova, Caroline Brasch-Nielsen, So Young Kang or Hana Jirickova are no more (currently) credited on the website of Marilyn NY. Maintenance I guess ?

 

London

Will the move of Louie change the policy of Women regarding the representation of its girls in London ? So many Women NY girls without any model agency in London... Will Angela Lindvall stay with IMG London or will she become a new name on this list... 

This LFW season showed that Premier was still a favorite destination for Ford NY models (Cora, Lina, Victoria, Kate,...).

 

Milan

We did not see any show packages this season for Joy, Fashion, Brave or Major on models.com as they are not models.com participating model agencies. Frustrating !

Paris

Websites updated before the Paris FW...

New websites for Metropolitan and soon Marilyn (Marilyn has now Marilyn THE Blog, a new luxury blog already online...). Viva (bye bye Laura Blokhina, Kelli Lumi or Zuzana Gregorova...) also should have a new website (hopefully) soon... and the website of Elite Paris is still not updated...

Oui management and Elite Paris are still the favorite destinations of Ford/Ford Women NY girls (Cora Emmanuel and Lina Sandberg for Oui, Ondria and Antonia for Elite...).

Will Nimue Smit also move from Women to Next in Paris ? Next takes its time to update its website.. First a cleaning (bye bye Heidi Harrington-Johnson and Bekah Jenkins) and soon new girls added (including Yulia Terentieva I guess)...

 

NY

DNA has lost several models recently... Ali Michael, Alina Ismailova, Ajuma, Anna-Mariya U, Laura Blokhina, Sophie Willing,... I have the feeling that they are not going to the same agency... Some might go to Wilhelmina (Ali ?), Ford (someone at TFS cleverly noticed that Alina and Anna-Mariya have the same mother agency as Maryna Linchuk who just left DNA to Ford... Ajuma back to Ford ?), IMG or Next (Laura Blokhina ?), etc and some nowhere...

Surprise of last Friday night... Charlotte di Calypso switched from One to DNA. Isolated move or or more girls to move ?

Good surprise of last week: a rumor saying that Romina Lanaro is back... actually with Ford NY. Ford NY and Viva are getting more and more linked these days...

 

London

Last week was a great week for Premier ! Many models joined the agency and among them Jia Jing, Kristina Romanova, Naomi Preizler, Kate Kokushkina, Cora Emmanuel, Lina Sandberg, Victoria Lee,... Storm managed to add Alison Nix, Sabrina Nait and the smahing new face Ashton Phillips (the new Request connection for Storm...), Models 1 scored Keke Lindgard while Elite added Daiane Conterato to its board ! Surprisingly Select has been extremely calm lately...

Surprisingly Daphne Groeneveld is nowhere now in London ! No more @ Union and not represented (yet ?) by a new agency. Same scenario for Hilary Rhoda... Oh both are Women/Supreme girls... Again !

 

Milan

It's moving, it's switching in Milan before the FW !

D'Management welcomed Nicola Haffmans and Alison Nix while Why Not reinforced its connection with Ford/Ford Women NY with Lina Sandberg and Cora Emmanuel... but also with Wilhelmina (Keke Lindgard or Sojourner Morrell), One (Elsa Sylvan) and Request (Ashton Philipps) ! Women Milan welcomed Tanya D, Yulia Lobova and Sabrina Nait... More to come next week I guess.

Paris

Most of the agencies reopened this week and they have started to update their websites ... 

IMG added Martha Streck on their website, Elite added Ondria Hardin and Antonia Wesseloh while Women finally credited Hilary Rhoda but...  still not Herieth Paul (I wonder why...).
Yulia Terentieva is not credited anymore on the website of Nathalie (-> Next Paris, according to models.com).

Hopefully Marilyn or Next... will follow soon. 

 

NY

Tough times for Women NY with Nimue Smit and Martha Streck leaving the house...
Tough times also for NY models with Sophie Strobele, Yulia Terentieva and Julia Frauche leaving for Next, Cora Emmanuel leaving for Ford and Patricia van der Vliet switching for Marilyn !

The Elite NY exodus is not finished (Kenza Fourati, Claudia Mason, Betty Adewole, Maddie Kulicka, Noemie Lenoir... left)... When will it stop ?

Where are Ali Michael (DNA -> ?) and Gracie Carvelho (Marilyn -> ?) ? Let's keep an eye...

Apparently no agency will represent Juliane Gruner for the NYFW this season... She will probably be booked exclusively for one show from Scoop models...

NYFW might become complicated if girl switch when already in a show package... Cora Emmanuel left NY models for Ford but is in the NY model show package, Anna Ilnytska left Muse for MC2 while already in the Muse show package !

Finally Silent NY has a new website... Hopefully Silent Paris will follow soon !

 

London

Lena Hardt and Aysche Tiefenbrunner from FM models are now on the website of Viva London... but Daphne Groeneveld is still nowhere ! 

Women/Supreme have so many girls not represented in London... I wonder why ? They prefer to do all the bookings from abroad ? They have scheduled to open a shop in London ?

 

Milan

Next Milan opened the ball by adding Nimue Smit and Eugenia Mandzhieva on its board, Why Not just added Tao Okamoto, Women added Sabrina Nait and IMG added Martha Streck... A good resumption in Milan after one month of vacation !

Challenge in Milan: could Major get finally a website ?

Paris

Holiday celebrate, Holiday celebrate...

Can't wait to see the updated websites end of August ! I heard on the grapevine that one of the top Parisian agencies should even have a brand new one...

 

NY

Shorter holiday here as the fashion week is beginning of September. Show packages should start to appear soon and... who will represent Juliane Gruner ?

NY models merged its Image and Main Board divisions into a Women division while a New Faces division was added. Same organization as Marilyn NY... Same success to predict ?

RIP Elite+... Elite NY moved its Elite+ models to the Elite division.
Alina Puscau (formerly with IMG) joined Elite... Who else will join Elite to make up for the recent exodus of girls ? 

 

London

The move of Isabeli Fontana from Storm to Next London was THE switch of the week... Actually it might not be the last as Daphne Groeneveld is currently not credited anymore on the website of Union and Heidi Harrington-Johnson is also currently not credited anymore on the website of Next London (she just moved from Next to IMG NY...). Will Hilary Rhoda appear one day on the website of an agency ?

Can't see anymore Lena Hardt or Aysche Tiefenbrunner on the website of FM... Maintenance or switch (to Viva London...) ?

 

Milan

Holiday celebrate, Holiday celebrate...

Paris

New Madison takes its time but is building a very decent board... Georgie Badiel, Iza Olak, Zuzana Lettrichova, Mariana Braga and more recently Robyn Lawley, Luize Salmgrieze, Tanya Ruban and Atong Arjok... To be watched !

No more Ann and Kirby Kenny on the model planet... They are not credited anymore on the websites of Viva Paris+London, DNA and Why Not... Back soon ?

 

NY

Muse should be also watched... Ana Mihajlovic, Emina Cunmulaj, Esther de Jong, Georgie Badiel, Heide Lindgren, Shena Moulton, Patricia Schmid and more recently Kyla Love, Sharan, Nastasia Ohl and great new faces like Audrey Nurit or Vanessa Lee,... a very good board indeed.

Elite is working on its website... (internal moves of models from Elite+ to Elite...) and so did Wilhelmina (is looks like the agency worked on a more selective Image division further the arrival of Coco Rocha...).

Victoire Macon Dauxerre is not anymore on the website of Silent NY and Mini Anden is not anymore credited on the website of Elite NY...

 

London

Union models credited Julia Zimmer (Prada ad campaign) on their website on July 20, 2011. From July 21, 2011 she is not listed anymore... Strange !

 

Milan

Big cleaning on the website of Why Not ! Many models are not credited anymore... To be watched !

Why Major Milan is probably the only model agency in the world... without any website ? 

Women Milan switched Milly Simmonds from Women Direct to the main board of Women. Makes more sense for the girl of the new Burberry ad campaign...

Girls like Tanga Moreau or Edie Campbell should be represented in Milan !

Paris

Viva Paris listed new girls on its website. Beegee Margenyte and Anja Konstantinova are two of them with immediate potential.

 

NY

Irina Kulikova is back on the website of IMG while Mini Anden is no more credited on the website of Elite...
Silent managed to add Melodie Monrose to its board in NY. 

Like daughter like mother ? DNA added Mariel Hemingway to its board just a few weeks after Dree had joined the agency.

 

London

Welcome to Tess management on tweeter.

Storm added Charlie Siem, the violin virtuoso, to its board of celebrities. Alasdair McLellan is already a fan ! V Man, Acne Paper and Vogue UK also...

Can't wait to discover the new LOVE magazine in only a fortnight now (great to have this earlier issue date)...

 

Milan

Tanga Moreau is on the cover of the August issue of Marie Claire Italia and is also featured in all the fashion stories of the entire magazine !

I guess it is high time for Tanga to be represented in Milan (she used to be with Beatrice).

Great initiative of Marie Claire Italia... One girl seen by different visions. The formula is always a success (Stephanie Seymour with Pop, Liya Kebede with Vogue Paris, Julia Stegner, Heidi Klum or Claudia Schiffer with Vogue Germany, Gisele Bundchen with BIG, all the Special fashion issues of French ELLE,...). Can't wait to see the photos...

Paris

Couture time is over in Paris and all supermodels left for holidays or just a few days of rest before the next shooting... I guess the web masters of certain agencies left too.

I noticed that Edyta Zajac, the girl of the new ad campaign of Kenzo Tag is represented by Crystal models... Sometimes you can get a fabulous ad campaign without switching to be represented by influent agencies like IMG or Elite... A good booker is also very important.

We might see soon Antonia Wesseloh, Ondria Hardin, Dorte Limkilde, Juliane Grüner or Audrey Marnay credited somewhere... 

 

NY

Wilhelmina welcomed Coco Rocha this week. This agency should rock now with a star and so many great new faces... even if the rumor of Melodie Monrose leaving Wilhelmina for Silent is getting stronger on TFS.

Irina Kulikova disappeared from the IMG NY website... Is she following Derek Dayley at Elite ? Any impact in Europe ? Other girls to do the same ?

Which agency will represent Juliane Grüner, the July 2011 Vogue Italia cover girl ? My best bet would be Women/Supreme NY (they already collaborate significantly with Scoop models) but I can be wrong...

 

London

Surprisingly very quiet this week.
However I'm still dying to know which agency will represent Hilary Rhoda in London...

 

Milan:

Nothing to declare...
Hana Jirickova still unrepresented in Milan ?

Paris

It's Couture time in Paris... All the supermodels are flying to Paris ! Just have a look at Twitter and you will know who comes for the shows... The agencies (including Elite and Women) are super busy and of course they don't have time to update their websites... Patience.

We might see soon Antonia Wesseloh, Ondria Hardin, Dorte Limkilde or Juliane Grüner credited somewhere... 


NY

The rumor of Melodie Monrose leaving Wilhelmina for Silent is back... To be continued for sure.

Which agency will represent Juliane Grüner, the July 2011 Vogue Italia cover girl ?

Waiting also to see some new names appear on the websites of Ford, Wilhelmina... and of course Elite !

 

London

We finally know that Charlotte Benson is now with Tess but we still don't know which agencies will represent the new Prada girls (Kelly Mittendorf, Julia Zimmer, Dorte Limkilde and Ondria Hardin) or Julia Grüner.

My favorite question: Hilary Rhoda is with Women in Paris+NY+Milan... but in London ?

 

Milan:

After Catherine McNeil leaving Next for Why Not and Linda Vojtova moving from Elite to D'Management, now Carola Remer left Women to join Why Not... Hana Jirickova is not credited anymore on the website of Elite...

Who will represent Kelly Mittendorf and Juliana Grüner ?

Paris

The Haute Couture days are next week and the agencies start to credit new names on their websites... New Madison listed this week Robyn Lawley and Luize Salmgrieze while Oui Management credited Catherine McNeil on its (new) website. City models has no new major girl this week but a great new website. 

We might see soon Antonia Wesseloh, Ondria Hardin and Dorte Limkilde credited somewhere... Kelly and Julia being already with Marilyn.

The supermodel and actress Audrey Marnay should appear soon somewhere in the Talent Division of a Paris agency...


NY

No change this week and we are still waiting for news on Coco Rocha's move to Wilhelmina, Hannah Holman's move to Ford and the new destination of Elsa Benitez.

In the meantime, Ann and Kirby Kenny, Diana Farkhullina, Josefin Hedstrom and Yulia Leontieva are now homeless... Are they all going to the NEW Elite ?

New website for Major and new girl, Dallas Hernandez...

 

London

No change this week and we are also waiting for news on Karolin Wolter (Tess -> ?), Charlotte Benson (Nowhere... Stopped modeling ?), Ines Crnokrak (Elite -> ?), Ksenia Maksimova (Elite -> ?), Victoire Macon-Dauxerre (Elite -> ?), Bar Refaeli (Storm -> ?), Daiane Conterato (Storm -> ?)...

Who will represent the new Prada girls (Kelly Mittendorf, Julia Zimmer, Dorte Limkilde and Ondria Hardin) in London ? Antonia Wesseloh is with Elite.

Hilary Rhoda is with Women in Paris+NY+Milan... but in London ?

 

Milan:

Kinga Rajzak is back on the website of IMG but Emily DiDonato is still not credited yet (now @ IMG)... Catherine McNeil (now @ Oui Management) and Audrey Marnay are still no more on any website of agencies... 

Who will represent the new Prada girls (Kelly Mittendorf - now @ Marilyn Paris, Antonia Wesseloh and Ondria Hardin) in Paris ? Difficult to say as Elite Paris has not updated its website for ages... while Oui Management is about to launch a website this Monday.


NY
