Here’s what else is up.

Clothes are and always will be a passion of mine–but in the end it all sort of comes down to beauty alone, doesn’t it?

Instead of trying to, uh, “eloquently” edge my way into this–I’ll just say it:

I love models.

It’s almost a bit sappy…how much reference and inspiration I can glean from a face alone.

I don’t know what it is…this attraction to the fashion industry, for me, is an attraction to a realm where beauty and the visually-striking reign supreme–a place where pictures and images do literally entail 1,000 words.

I’m gay as they come–but gahhhd, women are beautiful.

I’ve compiled a list of my favorite working models. Something I’ll continue to do with this blog is cover new and up-and-coming faces.

My favorites…under the cut.

Part One: Old Favorites

Mariacarla Boscono – The Lady Macbeth of models.

Lara Stone – …yeah, icon. Just ask models.com

Georgina Stojiljkovic – Rossetti would kill to paint her, I think.

Kristen McMenamy – Nineties legend–inimitable.

Alice Gibb – She’s saint-like.

Lakshmi Menon – She’s intelligent…and thank God for an Indian woman on catwalks.

Iekeliene Strange – Her cheekbones: they will kill you!

Mia Aminata Niara – The most dauntingly sophisticated girl walking right now.

Snejana Onopka – Those legs…the stare. Things will never be the same!

Coco Rocha – Fan favorite…unparalleled energy.

Magdalena Frackowiak – Her face is mathematical perfection…and her body is a weapon.

Daiane Conterato – There’s something Edwardian about her.

Lily Cole – Babydoll queen of the noughties…now she’s an actress…woman after my own heart!

Natalia Chabanenko – I assume Helen of Troy looked something like this.

Karen Elson – Early noughties superstar…married to Jack White…still has it.

Tanya Dziahileva – She’s a paradox, both versatile and odd.

Abbey Lee – These days, she’s the coolest around.

Liu Wen – The type of gorgeous you don’t have to think about.

Iris Strubegger – Sleek, androgynous, and Avedonian…you can tell she’s aware of whom, what, and when she references.

Irina Kulikova – Legs, baby, legs.

Part 2: Recent Seasons, New Girls

Carla Gebhart – Not to be cheesy…but she embodies “the moment” somehow.

Kirsi Pyrhonen – “New girl”, in this case, means new.

Lais Ribeiro – Brazilian Barbie!

Jacquelyn Jablonski – Jersey girl walked more shows last season than anyone else!

Ajak Deng – Such a great walk…powerful and graceful.

Frida Gustavsson – You can’t argue with 6’0 of pure, Swedish aristocracy!

Barbara Palvin – She looks even more expensive than the clothing she’s paid to wear.

Ylonka Verhuel – There’s something so commanding about her…regal…

Lindsay White – Okay, this chick is eerie. Pitch perfect for those dark, ethereal moments.

Ann and Kirby Kenny – Twins! Can you believe it? Grunge vibes.
