Hi everybody. I hope this post will find you well. I am very happy to share with you a special post that has a special meaning for me as I dedicate it to models.
I’ve been doing Style and the City for almost 7 years now. Over the years, I witnessed street style photography becoming a must have content for medias and as a consequence, the burst of street style photographers during fashion weeks. Yet, for 7 years, I’ve been photographed models with my lens but with my heart and love. I never considered them as coat racks, as content that will drive me more visitors or help me to sell more pictures to media. WHY ? Because Style and the City doesn’t celebrate style only, but also LIFE in all its glory. Without that desire to capture great moments of life, I would never have met the beautiful Eishia Brightwell and her adorable little girl, Legend Pearl. The brands of her outfit ? I can dare at all. Look at how she is happy looking at her daughter posing for me in the middle of the sidewalk in New York, as Eishia was going at a casting. Isn’t it a beautiful memory to offer to a model rather than a still pictures focused on her style ?
If modeling is associated with glamour, I know that being a model is not an easy career at all. Lot of stress, jobs and fashion shows that are not paid in time and even not at all, a career that depends on designers, fashion brands and even photographers will… not to mention how short it is. For all these reason I love models even more. I don’t consider them as person to fanatise but as little sisters. From the most well known to the new faces, I can’t help myself to have a great affection for them.
The best way for me to honor them was to dedicate them a great musical slideshow capturing their coolness, their happiness, their kindness towards me, every time we meet. Thank you very much Gigi Hadid, Nina Agdal, Hailey Baldwin, Bella Hadid, bella Thorn, Tami Williams, Cara Delevingne, Ming Xi, Liu Wen, Yumi Lambert, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Anaïs Mali, Andie Arthur, Eloïsa Carvalho, Larry Hoffman, Eishia brightwell and so many others I can’t name for the joy you offer me every time I succeed to make you smile. In September I leave Paris and move in New York to launch my startup “Models Can Smile” : you gonna love it and I know that we’ll have a lot of fun together !
Dear readers, friends, fans, I hope you’ll enjoy this musical slideshow of 78 pictures as much as I do. I wrote “pictures” but “moments” is the right term. If they make you love these models even more, then my mission has been accomplished. Share them with your friends because in September, it’s fashion week again, from Paris to New York, from London to Milan ! See you very soon …
But right now, click the pictures bellow and have fun !
