The World's Next Top Model
I was so excited to see Vogue's new issue; with a dobule page spread showing the world's next top model who are Lily Donaldson, Hilary Rhoda, Doutzen Kroes, Sasha Pivovarova, Caroline Trentini, Raquel Zimmermann, Jessica Stam, Chanel Iman, Coco Rocha and Agyness Deyn. Not so long ago, the pages of Vogue where full with the Versace ad celebrating the era of the 'Supermodel' with models such as Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy to name a few but it's good now to see Vogue celebrating the new blood. even more surprising was the clothes the girls were wearing. For such an amazing story you'd expect high fashion at this best, but the clothes are by none other than GAp. I've never been the biggest fan of Gap to it was amazing to see what is usually very basic and casual look oh so chic and fabulous. The idea I'm sure was in light of Gap deciding to jump on the designer train like Stella for H&M and so many others and they have chosen this year's winners of the 2006 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Doo.Ri, Rodarte and Thakoon. The prices range from $66-88 so are affordable for anyone who wants to treat themselves on a designer piece on the cheap. It's great to do that. I'll confess and say that I did end up collection nearly every item of the Stella and Karl Largerfield's collection for H&M. I mean, when will there be another opportunity for someone to get such greatly designed and cut clothes at scuh affordable prices. On that note, I'm envious that I'm not in the States right now because it still has not been said whether the collection is coming over to London. Fingers crossed.
