Monika Jagaciak, Hannah Holman, Ann Kenny, Kirby Kenny, Julia Nobis, Mirte Maas & Tati Cotliar by Paolo Roversi for Interview September 2010
I adore Jac. Sooooo much. She’s rapidly becoming my favorite model. In any case, Interview shoots the next model favorites. They’re all young but they’re quickly becoming known. I like how each model has a more romantic shot with cozy knits and then a grittier street shot. Paolo always does excellent work. I’m a bit surprised that he shot for Interview though.

Kamila Filipcikova & Monika Jagaciak by David Sims for Vogue Paris June/July 2009
I can’t believe that I never posted this. These are early efforts from Jac and I’m glad that she’s grown quite a bit. What is undeniable is how gorgeous both models are. The styling reminds me of Dolce & Gabbana’s aesthetic (especially recently) with the hourglass silhouette and exquisite craftsmanship. It’s an old classic.

Monika Jagaciak by Sølve Sundsbø for Numéro #114 June/July 2010 Cover
I absolutely love her. She’s most definitely one of my favorites. Not to mention she has frequented the pages of Numéro quite often. She’s quite impressive for one so young.

Now this is a Jac editorial I can get into. And can I say, what a successful year for her! She opened and closed so many shows for Fall/Winter 2010! I’m so happy for her, especially since she’s so young. Not to mention that apparently Calvin Klein might be ending her exclusivity with them and moving onto Lara Stone. In any case, this is a positively angelic editorial for her. There is a maturity to her model at last; not to mention those fabulous cheekbones are being put to work as per usual. She’s stunning and clearly has/had no awkward phase that most go through.

Alexander Wang there is no limit to my love for you and your designs. You are my absolutely favorite designer. That being said, wtf is up with that hair? After watching the live stream (which totally made my day btw), I went like absolutely shit crazy over everything about it. From my tweets alone one could just see crazed partially gibberish enthusiasm for your creations. Ok now onto the real review:
Alexander Wang grew up. However he still knows his girl really well. He has done a complete 180 on the grunge look that made him famous and broadened his appeal to a whole other level. But he has stayed true to himself. The Alexander Wang girl may have grown up but that doesn’t mean she has to follow the rules. His influence was Wallstreet and businesswomen in banker suits which is a great depart from his master of the perfectly stretched tee shirt and casual edginess. As Vogue would put it, “Polished yes, but hardly proper. Wang knows his girl, and she’s not following the office dress code.” Not only that, he has a love of the heavier fabrics; this season it is “velvet du jour” as he would say and has used it liberally throughout the collection. One can see his signature touch all over it; it is gothic and it haunting. It is sophisticated and sexy. It is growing up without conforming to society. I love it. I love his music selection, the way the models walked like slow stalking panthers. I love that he opened and closed with Natalia Vodianova. I love the cut-out lace tops and thigh high leg warmers. Alexander Wang has the staying power and creativity. Wangettes around the world: rejoice.

Charmingly known as Jac, she is one of my new favorite models. She’s very young and yet, already a rising star (she managed to land a Hermes campaign at 13!). I first noticed her in Alexander Wang this season; she is quite pretty. Well all models are striking in some manner, but she just really caught my eye. The close-ups are breathtaking; pulling her hair back was a great move because she has marvelous eyes. Now there’s a word I don’t use very often. However, her eyes are really a marvel to behold. And I think that as she continues to grow and learn, she’ll be a great model. She has natural talent. Hopefully she doesn’t get caught up in the many vices the fashion world offers.
