Model Citizen

One of my favourite parts of fashion week is the people watching. When flicking through pages and pages of style.com collections pushes me to breaking point, I take comfort in snaps of the models backstage and on the the street, prancing and showing off their own outfits, for once able to style themselves.





apologies for the break in posting; for the past few days neglecting the blog has made me feel like a distracted parent, but it's good to be back.
Went to see The Diving Bell and the Butterfly on saturday night, and enjoyed it so much, I genuinely recommend you all see it, if not for the incredibly moving and in parts humorous narrative, then for the perfect French women with floaty minidresses and bedhead hair.
now playing: All The World is Green by Tom Waits

Hye looks great, I lover boots, I think they sold a similar pair at the gap. I love how the models are dressed have you noticed it’s all very black and white not a lot off colour, apart from Ike.

Btw, i am flattered,
but I do not live in the UK unfortunately..I live in Greece.
I selected UK because I would love to live there and half my family is there and its like my second home..

Romany said...

Ooh Maryna looks fab!
Where did you get these? It's amazing seeing what models do outside of their runway lives - they're just like us, I suppose. Except more glamorous. Lol.

ah... Starbucks... an everlasting love *g* Top: The girl with the hat (kind of K.M.) and the one with the blazer, although I'm not so sure about the fur, it matches to the whole style, but yeah I just hope it's a fake..

Watching the how everyone dresses during fashion week is such fun! First you see the new stuff on the runway, then you see how people are playing with it on the streets!

CHIC NOIR said...

I love model watching too.

yanaiswasted said...

oooooh i love sasha!
and the two girls in the right corner at the bottom. the white dress is lovely.

MR style said...

i agree, the best part is the backstage !! people are real and honest, without makeup, they feel free to say the clothes were like shit or that it was fantastic !! it's the best place !! the runaway is too popular and too much seen to be really appreciated !! people cant be themselves when there's hundreds of pretty and fashionable queens and kings around

la petite fashionista said...

haha comforting to know that models are as addicted to starbucks as i am :D

ashley said...

hahaha cute how you called her "Iek" :)

Model Citzen said...

bronwyn said...

Nice post - so interesting to see what models wear when they're not on the ramp!

ChiliLady said...

Cool Urbanite. said...

Coco looks really cute in that dress with the Loubies underneath!
And I like Iekeliene (what's not to like about this fashion dare devil)!

coco said...

I love models style, it's nice to see they are being a bit more daring than old mossy who has stuck to her uniform for much to long now
I know what you mean about style.com snaps, I find it hard to imagine the clothes on the runway, and this year I have found the styling of the shows a little off

Molly ;) said...

AHHHH!
I am truly sorry!
i had absolutely NO idea it was Sam & amanda in the picture!
Eugh.
After their 'Barbie Girl' Song i have completely hated them!
How DID they get into Fashion Week?!?!?!
Thanks for letting me know!

Oh yes.. would you like to link exchange?
I do love your blog. x
