Streets Ahead

What makes the difference between a mere pretty face and a model with true staying power and the capacity to inspire designers and key industry players? The answer lies in Interview Magazine's editorial on the modelling's cool brigade as interpreted by photographer Craig McDean. Top models Kasia Struss, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Karlie Kloss, Julia Nobis, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Sasha Pivovarova, Iselin Steiro, Ashleigh Good, Lisa Verberght, and Amanda Murphy are featured in the line-up of modelling's coolest cats. What all of these girls share is an individual style, an attitude and an aura which supercedes their otherwise spectacular dna. Upping the cool quotient requires a combination of factors namely remaining true to one's self, developing a street style which conveys a sense of fashion without being beholden to fashion trends, and a sense of quirkiness and individuality when presenting at castings. In a room full of gorgeous faces often times it is the models with perceived imperfections who will standout from the pack. According to the New York Times, at castings for the Spring/Summer 2014 show season flawed beauty is in. Casting director Natalie Joos who casts for clients Karen Walker, Osklen, and Charlotte Ronson reveals to the New York Times, "You want to be intrigued by a certain characteristic or feature you're not used to seeing."
