Favourite models ever!

By nature extremely fleeting and unseizable, the fashion industry is truly a fascinating one. Trends go out of fashion as soon as new ones emerge. In this world, 25 is considered an advanced age and models are "over" when their faces start to get recognizable by the public. In other words, the careers of up-and-coming models are over just as fast as they exploded. I'm always amazed at how much I have to catch upon when I forsake fashion for a while. The amount of new designers/models/trends that come out each season is overwhelming. The fashion industry is growing so fast nowadays! For this reason, my current favourite models may not be the freshest faces out there, but they made their mark and they are quite popular models, top models to say the least.

First, let's start off with Canadian model Daria Werbowy. The gorgeous doe-eyed brunette's classic beauty allowed her to do Haute couture (Prada, Valentino) but she is very well able to do high street fashion (H&M) and cosmetics (LancĂ´me) due to her versatility.

The sculpturesque Raquel Zimmerman, in addition to having one of the most awesome first name know to man, is downright stunning. You might have seen the Brazilian model last year in those grotesque Viktor and Rolf for H&M tv commercials in which she portrayed a beaming bride in a bizarre world solely inhabited by twins.

And last but not least, Miss Agyness Deyn (pronounced Agness Deyn), whose first name can form a rather amusing word (!), is my current obsession. I even shamelessly stole a copy of Vogue magazine at a sushi bar one night because the British It-Girl was on the cover!

Agyness' career began in a storm, accompanied by much tumult surrounding her pseudonym (her real name is Laura Hollins) and her actual age (25) that she attempted to conceal. Her boyish looks and punk rock attitude were seen on every podium and in every magazine last season. She was very recently featured in Five O'Clock Heroes's music video for their single Who. Not only does she look absolutely beautiful in black and white but homegirl can sing!
