Lone Star

It’s not Dallas. It’s not Texas. It’s wherever you want it to be, and there’s no doubt there’s West on the mind…
Western elements have recently been popping up in unexpected ways both on the catwalk and off, and at the recent shows there was the Urban Cowboy trend rising up on the street in Western boots, embroidered shirts and low-slung belts. Keep the look relaxed and effortless in slouchy denims, print tees, leather jackets and boots. For a sexier interpretation of the trend, layer Western elements with femme fatale ones like sparkles, fitted leather or satin.West_8

The new Lydia

It was a cold morning on Melbourne Cup day on one of  Sydney’s Northern Beaches, and the rain and wind were undecided about their direction and strength- but it was also 15 year old Lydia’s first EVER photo shoot, and she wasn’t about to let the weather get her down.
She moves like someone who’s been modelling for years, it was hard to believe that Lydia had never sat for a photo session before. Ever…! The crew and I put it down to her Tahitian dance experience. Lydia is part Russian and part Cook Islander. It’s the make-up for her exotic features and strong build, and so it won’t be long until Victoria’s Secret casting director John Pfeiffer gets wind of her. Discovered by her hairstylist together with IMG Australia’s Danielle Ragenard, Lydia is destined for stardom. So fresh is Lydia to the modelling scene, she isn’t even currently on the IMG website as her images are still being developed. The future looks bright for her though,  it’s onwards and upwards from here.
