Before Caroline Trentini, they had Jean Shrimpton

Remember the scene at The September Issue where Grace Coddington made one of the camera crew jump for the 2007 September issue of Vogue?

Caroline Trentini

Here's a shot from a very old (back in the 60s) issue of Vogue featuring model/actress Jean Shrimpton.

It's true when they say everything old is new again.

Amaze!

Rest in Peace My Dear Friend, Daul Kim

20/11/2009, Fashion and Style, Models

Rest in Peace My Dear Friend, Daul Kim

I’m sure many of you are just as devastated as I am when news reports came in about Daul. 

We started talking online in February and after many months of endless conversations, facebook chats, we met for the first time in September during the spring 2010 shows in Milan. She invited me to her hotel room where we hung out for hours, just the two of us. She had a TV show in Korea where she takes video footage of herself and her favourite people. We played dress up — she made me wear her clothes, we played with her furs (her Isabel Marant is gorgeous), chomped on toblerone, etc. We talked about Asians and racism in fashion, gossiped about models and mean casting directors, etc. Good times all in all. I could’ve spent the night in her hotel but I didn’t bring any clean clothes with me and we both have shows in the morning. We agreed to meet up at D&G backstage the next day.

Daul and her video camera, just before me doing the whole “Hey Korea, we’re here at D&G, I love you all” moment haha. 

Daul Kim

I’ve been crying the whole day. I just can’t believe she’s gone! Soo young and soo soon…

I feel terrible because we both talk about our personal problems but I didn’t know it’s going to end this way. I feel like I could have done something and I could’ve been there for her more. The last time we talked was last week.

She regularly comments on my facebook wall. Just this Tuesday, she replied to my status message.

I don’t go as much on facebook chat because every time I go there, 200 chat windows show up with everyone in the world wanting to get a hold of me… I should have gone online when she posted that reply and took it as a sign that she wanted to talk!

Anyway, I digress.

Daul, I really miss you so much. I’ll forever cherish our moments. You’ll never be forgotten.

From one fur hag to another, I promise to wear my furs, when I have the opportunity (and where it’s cold), in YOUR honor.

I love you Daul. So much.

Gemma Ward Has NOT Quit Modeling.

Hallelujah praise Jesus. Gemma has spoken and she rendered all the recent press reports that she "quit" as null and void. Fashionologie blogged Gemma emailed the West Australian newspaper that she'll be back working next year.

Gemma Ward

Good on ya Gemma! Can't wait to see you back.

That's all.

Candy Magazine feat. Luke Worrall

Say hello to the coolest fashion magazine celebrating crossdressing and trannyismisms! Some of the world’s best took part in this amazing magazine: photos by Bruce Weber, Tim Walker and Terry Richardson, editorials styled by my man Kim Jones and the cool Robbie Spencer. Male model Luke Worrall is on the cover of the Fall/Winter 2009-2010 issue.

Luke Worrall for Candy Magazine cover

Check out this video. I see a hot boy in Rodarte. Even Cole Mohr is there!

I think it’s great that we have magazines like this, considering we live in androgynous and gender ambigous times…

AMAZING, NO?

I want Candy….

NATASHA POLY YOU BETTER WERQ!

Back in June, I swore to myself I'll never get photographed beside a model again because I'm not comfortable with the huge disparity between looks… but the inevitable happened. SUPER POWER WONDER TWINS ACTIVATE! Backstage at Dolce & Gabbana, holy moly it's Natasha Poly! 

Natasha Poly and Bryanboy backstage at Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer 2010

Me and my favourite model in the history of all time. The most ferocious walker ever, ever, ever, EVER! I'll never apologize for saying I love her more than I love Gisele, Kate and Naomi COMBINED.

Now, can we please go to WERQ?

That's all.

Kasia Struss in Milan

Kasia Struss in Milan

Finally arrived in Milan. I sat a few seats behind Kasia Struss on the flight from NYC and I took this shot outside the airport. I keep on seeing this gorgeous lady!! First at the V Magazine party and now this!!!

Kasia Struss

She's with this rather, um, mature, gay gent who reminded me of Andy Warhol but Andy he is not. The guy she's with was hysterical! He went on and on and on how Air France flight attendants are dominatrix sadists. His voice was so loud you'll have to be deaf in order for you not to understand what he was saying.

The adventure continues…

Meanwhile…. guess who's getting a first class seating upgrade at the Dolce & Gabbana + D&G shows this week? *wink*

PS. Can I just say I love Kasia's legs? OMG I swear to god I could wrap my hand around them. I want legs like hers!!!!

PPSS. I don't know if it's me or not but I just paid 100 euros for a cab ride from the airport to the city center….. is that normal? eeeeek!!!!

Kim Jones, Cole Mohr and… Bryanciaga!

KimMohr'a Bryanciaga is dat chu?

Two of my favourite men in fashion, my beloved Kim Jones and of course, male model superpower Cole Mohr, joined forces Friday night over a pair of some fierce Balenciaga shoes. This brought a major (and much-needed) smile to my face when I hauled my ass out of bed earlier this morning. Thank you :-)

Why am I not *THERE* to wear those Bryanciagas?

Hope to see you guys soon!

Meanwhile, I know I haven't updated recently because I've been on the road EVERY day for the past few days. In fact, twitter is my only connection to the online world! If you're not following me, do so now — http://www.twitter.com/bryanboy.

It's almost 2PM and I'm already late for 2 fittings. Will try to post moar when I get back.

Swedes are scared of Adina Fohlin!!! Apoliva Apolivareklamen

09/08/2009, Adina Fohlin, Models, Sweden

Swedes are scared of Adina Fohlin!!!

Remember Adina Fohlin, the ferosha Swedish model with killer eyes from many, many years ago? I love her during the Tom Ford for Gucci era. To me she’s THE Gucci girl back then.

Adina Fohlin for Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche ad campaign

She has a new commercial in Sweden (Apoliva) for a company called Apoteket, a supermarket chain.

According to the Local, over 100,000 Swedes joined a facebook group called “Jag är rädd för tjejen i Apolivareklamen” or “I am scared of the girl in the Apoliva commercial” when the ad aired in Sweden.

Dang!

Are you scared of her?

Maybe it’s just me but I actually find her beautiful and enchanting.
