My thoughts on Picture Me: A Model’s Diary


Have you seen Picture Me? It’s a great film documenting Sara Ziff behind the scenes of her life as a working top model. Over the course of 5 years with the help of her cameraman(boyfriend Ole Schell), they kept a video diary of the ups and downs of the modeling world. I love a good documentary, especially when it’s anything remotely related to fashion. 

In the beginning it’s really sweet and cute. You see her talking about a V Magazine shoot and see her walking to see her two billboards(Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger). It’s the more glamourous side of things at first. 

My favorite character in the documentary is an old woman, who I assume is her grandmother that referred to Sara Ziff as being ‘Sexy and Sullen, Sexy and Sullen.’ Her parents on the other hand wished her to go to school, which is a bulk of the documentary. Sara constantly talks about whether or not modeling was worth it anymore.

There’s also a darker side of the documentary when Sena Cech recounts a casting where she had to grab the photographer in a sexual way. She refused the job and the photographer never booked her again. 

Modeling has always been about young, naive girls. That’s what the industry likes because they can exploit that. 

Dries Van Noten’s Walk of Shame

This collection was inspired by the morning after. Having a wild night and throwing on whatever you can get your hands on. In the event that you have a Dries wardrobe at your disposal, you can be sure to have a high street walk of shame.

I personally leaned towards the collection because of how comfortable it seemed. Sweaters and oversized cardigans(robes pretty much). Just very loose and relaxed. The Dries Van Noten man for next season is still half asleep and semi-drowsy. Even the models’ expressions evoked a yawning ‘I’m still in bed’ and ‘I’m too comfortable to get up.’

This is a great testament to comfortable luxury for next season. Light, but warm enough to go out and buy something to eat(to go of course).

Ermanno Scervino

ermanno-scervino-mens-details-spring-summer-2013-mfw1Talk about eye candy! I’m not just referring to the models(insert wink here), but the clothes! The first look(see above), was a very lightweight sweater in a beautiful blue. The texture and the opening on the left shoulder give the piece a little extra. In case it gets a little steamy next spring, know that the fabric is very breathable and, if you’re not wearing an undershirt, very gay since you’re obviously purposefully trying to preen to the same sex whilst showing off all you’re hard worked pecs and abdominals.

But let’s be honest here. Nowadays the straight boys wanna dress like the gay boys. Everyone worth being ogled after needs to be well dressed. The clothes need to hug the body in ALL the right places. With Scervino, the fit is pretty international. Not that I currently own any pieces(all in good time), but I know all my models. Some are a little more muscular and some are lankier and yet they all look so tailored and natural in the clothing. It really is a great brand with a really great eye for dressing their men.
