Advent Season: Day Twenty Three

A flash of Late Night Inspiration
A thought process and a model.

Now this is a look that I want to be seeing more of come 2008.

How gorgeous are her candids?

Her name is Elena Melnik and as soon as I saw these candids I thought of Leigh Lezark.

Next year I want less blonde, bright Agyness, and more moody, dark snow white.
more black haired models please.
A realistic spring would be welcome. For the spring editorials; Less prancing on the beach, more sulking in dark, cold warehouses.
In terms of models rock n roll credentials, theres Irina, but really, despite hanging out with Doherty, she's a little clean seeming don't you think?
I'm not talking cleanliness, clean, because Leigh Lezark has that clean look to her, she's well turned out, but she looks like she might have seen dark things, and the same goes for Elena who has that same vibe, minus the snobby look.

also, Melnik is a little reminscent of model Shannan Click, non? Whatever happened to her. The strongest memory I have of her was that Nylon article.


I like to imagine her wandering around the spiritual fields at Glastonbury with a cool stoner dad wearing an oversize hawaiian shirt, baggy grey knee length shorts with lots of delightfully clashing patterns going on.


Whether or not she will deliver is yet to remain, but really it's her hair that has made me thirsty for this "moody snow white" model that now exists in my mind.
Darla Baker and newly ebony headed Kinga Rajzak, could you step up to the challenge?

Wow she's a beautiful! And a change is welcome, you are right about seeing to many blonde models. And most of them haven't got that mysterious in them.
Never heard of Elena, but she rocks the 3 outfits with her gorgeous look.

her 1st picture is awesome. ive been in love with her for some time, because I like the way she has pale skin and dark hair.my favourite hair colour for a woman is black, and you're right, more black-haired models should walk on the runway.

Ooh, I love her face. So interesting, I'm not really big on Agyness Deyn so it will be fantastic to have more models like this next year.

i lovee this look as well, the pale face and dark hair. hope to see more of her next year and kinga rajzak is gorgeous as an ebony head. there's something about dark hair that's very attractive, esp against the pale skin. same with firey read hair, like olga.

the moment i saw her on COACD, i fell in love.

"moody snow white" was exactly what i was thinking too...

all your ideas for spring 08 sound divine. i love the idea of dark fashion. a bit tragic but always beautiful.

happy christmas to you too, doll! :]

her candids are kinda haunting. but beautiful if you know what i mean.

I love how this season most of the break out models are darker haired. afterall, the blondes ahve been ruling for awhile.
I do agree with you, she does look like shannan click. Well, a much happier shannan click.
Happy holidays!!

Fashion Tidbits said...

Maud said...

Happy holidays, merry Christmas, all the best for 2008 !
Cheers, Maud
