Brand Nu Fashion at TVU

It was all glitz and glamour at the Kings Road campus, as 25 young aspiring designers showed friends, family and fellow students what they were made of, or should I say, what they had created.

Nervous energy filled the air and my own apprehension contributed to the vibe. Knowing a designer and young model in the show, and knowing how much time they had spent preparing for it, my thoughts were with every one of them as they strode seemingly confidently to the stage. Story continued here!

Canada's Next Top Model' contestant Mo 'incredibly shocked' by ouster

TORONTO (CP) - "Canada's Next Top Model" contestant Mo says she was "incredibly shocked" to be sent packing on the reality show earlier this week.

"I didn't expect to get sent home," the Toronto-based beauty, born Morayo Ninalowo in Nigeria, said Thursday in an interview.

"I was working so hard and I was getting better and better but I suppose that wasn't quite good enough."

Judges seemed to be behind the 20-year-old University of Toronto student, telling her she had spunk and that her photos were improving. Story continued here!

2 Interesting shows coming to VH1!

Just found out about 2 model industry related shows on VH1:

Beauty is a double-edged sword. It seems to be a commonly accepted notion in today’s world that an inverse proportion exists between brains and beauty – the prettier someone is, the less intelligent they are expected to be. And no one has it worse than models. But is this assumption really true? Do smart models exist, or does a life devoted to getting by on one’s looks make a person stupid? Now, VH1 will attempt to answer this burning question in “America’s Most Smartest Model.” Hosted by celebrity fashion expert Mary Alice Stephenson and Emmy Award winner Ben Stein, this reality competition series brings together fourteen models, (7 men, 7 women) all of whom think they are the perfect combination of beauty and brains. In every episode the ‘himbos’ and ‘bimbos’ will face challenges that put both their overall intelligence and beauty to the test. In the end, only one model will prove that they are more than just another pretty face and take home a $100,000 prize and the coveted title of “America’s Most Smartest Model.”

“America’s Most Smartest Model,” is executive produced by Cris Abrego of 51 Pictures and Mark Cronin of Mindless Entertainment. Jeff Olde, Kristen Kelly, Jill Holmes, Alex Demyanenko, Stella Stolper and Michael Hirschorn are executive producers for VH1.

CLICK!(8 episodes)
From the producer of “America’s Next Top Model” and “Pussycat Dolls Presents: The Search for the Next Doll,” “Click!” will give 10 amateur photographers the chance to live out their wildest fantasies in pursuit of their ultimate dream: to become the next great fashion photographer. Our cast will live and work together in a downtown L.A. loft while being guided by world-renowned fashion photographer Russell James. These aspiring photographers will embark on a series of photo shoots meant to challenge their creativity and expose their individual weaknesses. For the first time in their lives, the cast will work with supermodels and high-end professionals, while traveling to exotic locations – all to capture that one perfect shot. Whether it’s shooting on the deck of a schooner in the midst of a storm, or trying to get a supermodel to cuddle up to a Siberian tiger, our cast will face daunting tasks and obstacles that will test their talent, desire and drive to be the next great fashion photographer.

“Click!” is executive produced by Ken Mok for 10 X 10 Entertainment. Jim Ackerman is executive producer for VH1.

Fashion for food at Caribbean Fashionweek (CFW)

Who would have thought that models would work for food? Yet, this is just what they did in last Saturday's second show in the Pulse Caribbean Fashionweek (CFW) series. The night was dubbed 'Catwalk the World Evening', as this year Pulse partnered with Catwalk the World in 'Fashion for Food'. It is a variation of the United Nations World Food Programme's annual 'Walk the World' project to create awareness and funds to help alleviate child hunger globally.

Kingsley Cooper, CEO of Pulse and chairman of Catwalk the World - Caribbean, presented representatives from the U.N. with $500,000. The international campaign consists of high-profile charity fashion shows around the world, with the biggest and most creative designers representing their respective countries. As such, it was the designers who stole the show.

The show featured 12 designers, as well as designs from sponsor Nestlé. Designs from the Caribbean included Antoinette-Olivia, 5th Element, The Millhouse, The Mushroom, Bouik, Avark, Mutamba, Uzuri International, Lubica, Paju and Rojoe, and from Nigeria, Deola Sagoe.

First to grace the catwalk was swimwear from the Antoinette-Olivia line, which was later rivalled by The Mushroom as the only swimwear lines for the evening. The former, however, did not seem beach ready. The collection began with more conservative one-piece spandex suits and bikinis that did not seem to fit properly, resembling bloomers, then filled out into sexier pieces. Some pieces included shorts with high waists and suspenders with strapless tops.

Video killed the radio star…and made room for video beauties. Here’s how they shake it.

Stuff, 6/6/2005
By Laura Leu

In the old days, there was no such thing as a music video. Now, I know it’s almost too hard to believe, but before the early ’80s, you would have had to make do with just listening to songs. You wouldn’t have had the opportunity to see Tammy Garcia bring Eminem’s “Just Lose It” video to life with her portrayal of a naughty schoolgirl. Britney Spears’ “My Prerogative” would have been limited to a shitty remake instead of a hot video featuring Paige Peterson in a French-maid uniform. And Rayna Tharani, Esther Lafa and Nicole LaBarbera wouldn’t have been shaking their tail feathers in videos by G-Unit, DMC with Sarah McLachlan, and 50 Cent, respectively.

Which is why technology rocks. Because not only can you see these gorgeous gals on networks like MTV, VH1 and BET, but you can also check them out on their Web site, (It’s this thing called the Internet. I’ll explain it later.) The site features tons of photos and footage of the hottest dancers, models and leading ladies from your favorite videos. If you want autographed pictures, posters and calendars, you can get them there, too. But if you want to know what they have to say about what gets them hot, just read on.

Testing the beauty myth

Eric Wilson drops in on the would-be Naomi Campbells auditioning for America's Next Top Model.

THE line of beauty, contrary to the 18th-century aesthetic theory of William Hogarth, does not undulate in nature along a serpentine curve, not when it is held up to the strict measurements of America's Next Top Model.

Early one recent Saturday morning in New York, the line was long and raggedy, erratic and agitated, littered with empty coffee cups and the sleepless faces, which creased in the sunlight, of beautiful women on a casting call for the show's ninth season.

That very few of the 1500 women standing there looked like models, in the very narrowly defined sense of high fashion, did not appear to be of importance. A contrapposto stance and the impatient tapping of high heels suggested that in each posing applicant there existed the confidence of an inner Naomi Campbell. "I love Naomi because she is a diva," says Bianca Golden, 18, who towered over the competition standing at 180 centimetres, plus stilettos. Golden, with her hair up, wore a black cotton coat with tiny ruffled pleats at the waist. "After a while of being called fierce and everything, being a diva comes with the territory," Golden says.

The depiction of models in popular culture increasingly emphasises the stereotypical image of lucky, glamorous brats; their employers have tenuous moral codes. Their poor behaviour has been nowhere more graphically and hypnotically displayed on television recently than in The Agency, another US reality show about models, in which the hung-over agents have no compunction about telling a prospective client that she looks too fat. America's Next Top Model, which began in 2003 and continues to rank well for its network with teenagers and young women, at least attempts to display some humanity in its casting and nurturing of contestants.

The supermodel Tyra Banks, an executive producer of the show, serves as the voice of experience, often cushioning the all-too-harsh realities of the business in a motherly embrace, though she is also wont to scold a model brusquely for the cardinal sin of a cockeyed walk. As the contest progresses each season, what usually begins with a message of friendship and sisterly support among young women of diverse backgrounds ultimately ends as a superficial blood sport. As one of the judges pointed out in favour of Yoanna House, the champion of season two, her features were "amazingly symmetrical". Meanwhile, the runner-up promises to the camera that she will rip House's hair out.
