Interview-September-2013

Have my eyes deceived me? Is this a sign of covers to come? I want to scream with excitement because I can finally post a Model Moment segment with real life models!!!!!! And these aren’t just any models…. these are SUPERMODELS!! The supermodel rat pack, which consisted of Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Naomi Campbell, strutted and posed their way to the top of the high fashion runway model food chain in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Kate Moss was apart of it as well, but I will always have a soft spot for the model trinity of Turlington, Evangelista and Campbell.

Also along for the ride Stephanie Seymour, Daria Werbowy, and Amber Valletta. The photos were shot by Mert & Marcus for the 2013 September issue of Interview, aptly titled The Model Issue. If you remember they also shot Cara Delevingne for W magazine’s 2013 September issue.

I cannot wait to get my hands on one! In order for this to continue people have to buy the issues to show these publications that you’d rather see a model than a celeb on the covers. W and Interview got it right, this is what September issues should look like!

Is this the return of models on magazines? And what’s next in the wonderful world of fashion… actual designers instead of the celebrity ones?!  A girl can dream can’t she….

SUPERMODEL FLASHBACK: BROOKE SHIELDS

13 Jun

I really love doing the SUPERMODEL FLASHBACK segments every week. I get a sense of excitement every Thursday and it makes me happy to know that this segment is becoming a constant staple on Miss Monet. With that being said let us get into this weeks flashback, Brooke Shields.

Shields began modeling in 1966 at just 11 months old, landing her first job for Ivory Soap.  She carried on a successful career as a child model working for Eileen Ford, who later stated that she started the children’s division of Ford Models strictly for Shields.

Shields found great success in the 80’s, becoming the youngest model ever to debut on the cover of VOGUE, and proceeded to dominate the magazine for an astonishing 14 covers.  After becoming a cover model, she went on to  appear in print and TV ads for Calvin Klein, all at the age of 14. The ads for Calvin Klein Jeans, featured Shields using the famous tagline “You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.”  Both Shields and Klein’s careers catapulted after the ads aired, even though they were deemed too controversial.

By the age of 16 Shields had done what most models try to do, transition from modeling to acting. While others struggle to accomplish or even maintain both, Shields had done it without breaking a sweat. Thanks to movies like Pretty Baby and The Blue Lagoon, Hollywood was very familiar with her and not just because of her face. In February 1981, Time magazine reported that her day rate as a model was $10,000. And by the end of 1983, Shields was on the covers of PARIS VOGUEAMERICAN VOGUE , and  ITALIAN VOGUE all between the months of September through December.

Brooke Shields was the face of the 80’s, became the sitcom- actress of the 90’s and an advocate for postpartum depression in the new millennium. She has long surpassed the careers of her peers and has proven that she is more than just a pretty face.

So, if you saw last week’s edition of SUPERMODEL FLASHBACK,  then you’ll know that I’m obsessed with the supermodel era of the 80’s and 90’s, and I always will be! There’s something about that time, I can’t even say exactly what it is, that fascinates me so much.  I am drawn to it. Looking at supermodels of the past makes me want to be a supermodel! Let’s take a look at a few pictures of my favs- Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, and of course Naomi Campbell, or as I call them the SUPERMODEL RAT PACK.
