The person behind the photo

the super model...

...or breaking model


My movie character, je t'aime mon plus.

I feel a new era of models are changing the trend nowadays. Indeed we are all changing it by supporting a more realistic profile. With all the blogger's buzz and the fashion public influencing so much the market, people are looking for normal models, with who they can feel identified. "The unreachable" is something so out today.

The person behind the photo. The person who likes to style and buy cloth as well.
Blogging is changing the direction of the fashion market, cause in the end fashion is business and what sells is what a client sees that she can wear as well. And the client wears what's real, the real size, the real piece, the real person modeling it.

When I met Alex Wang I entered the office in the middle of a meeting saying what I thought without filter ("Wow, so this is you? you are soo young!"). A few days after I was confirmed for the resort mostly because of my words, and there were other great models in the casting believe me. It was the best reason of getting a job i've ever had!! Cool, spontaneous, fresh; this is what they wanna have from you cause this is what they want for their image, cause this is what we are all requesting. And thank you for asking for it.

We are like everybody else and I like to enter a casting always thinking in the person behind the photo that I am.

And i buy cloth and write a blog as well so we are all in the same group.

Thank you for being open minded and diverse.We move the fashion as well, congrats!

  1. Your words sound so true, Naomi!

    I truly love the recent trend progression taking a consideration on the humanity and personality of models.. That entire 'personality thing' has been extremely lacking in the previous 3 or 4 years of fashion industry.
    I think nowadays customers wish their models to make cleary statements with both look AND personality, no need for girls/boys who just got pretty faces but nothing to say. That's just boring.

    Well done, Naomi, i love your blog and especially the article.
