Models of the Moment | Current Favorites

Being busy and not knowing what to post to my blog is a horrible combination. I got up quite late this morning and sat wondering what I should publish today and at one point I just didn’t think I should post anything. But… after browsing the web for a bit, I decided I would give to you a round-up of 5 of my favorite models, both male and female.  With number 1 standing on their own, the other four of each category are in no particular order and of course it was hard to put this together since they’re so much great models out there whom I respect and love.

Jason Wu | Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NYFW

The hottest collection thus far in my books today comes straight from the runway of Jason Wu, young Taiwanese designer. I am indeed impressed with the quality delivered in the collection plus the diversity of looks. Using tons of top models including Jourdan Dunn, Daphne Groeneveld and Karmen Pedaru, the looks showcased, put forward some inspiration from the classic, chic and totally feminine woman, with an addition of masculinity in perfectly tailored looks. The collection was filled with color, amazing patterns and textures, all bouncing back to feminine accentuates of lace and beads. Check out my favorites, which by the way were extremely hard since I loved every single piece…and then the entire collection.

Givenchy Paris Haute Couture | Spring 2011 Couture

Featuring an all Asian cast of top models including Liu Wen and Sun Fei fei, Givenchy gives a hot collection for their Haute Couture showcase in Paris. I was greatly impressed by the creativity and diversity of every piece including the large head pieces which all fell under the Japanese inspired collection. Ricardo Tisci is definitely leading Givenchy in the right direction and this collection takes them high on my list!

Christian Dior Paris Haute Couture | Spring 2011 Couture

Just fierce is what I call this collection for Christian Dior by John Galliano. I am indeed impress with all the intricate designs that were showcased in this collection. Every piece has something special about it, and the commencement of the show with hot red was destined. All the models from Karlie Kloss to Liu Wen, definitely shone in the looks which brought me to the 60’s era where woman dressed to kill in the elegant of outfits. Here are my favorite looks along with all the show photos.
