This beautiful girl is Tessa May, a model signed with Chadwick Models in Australia. Some local campaigns she has been in are Myer and Peter Alexander. She has also done numerous shows for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and Melbourne Fashion Festival. I would love to see her sign with a big agency overseas and to try something different. To me, she is too talented to remain in Australia.
In my previous post I ranked my favourite female top models of the year, so why not rank my favourite male models of 2010. This was very difficult to do, I was pretty much stuck to choose from Sean, Simon and Jon. They are all very different but equally amazing.
Well it is New Years Eve (in Australia) so I think before I ring in the new year I should rank my favourite top models of 2010. My Criteria is based on their exposure, quality of work and success. This is my list, there are so many to choose from so I am sorry If I omit one of your faves. Therefore I am interested to know who your top models were for 2010 and what changes you would make to my list, thanks everyone.
1) Karlie Kloss
My favourite top model this year is Miss Karlie Kloss. Not only did she turn 18, but she also had one of her best years in the fashion industry thus far. Karlie had campaigns with Dior, Oscar De La Renta, Yves St Laurent Beauty, Aquascutum, Uniqlo, Donna Karan, Giada, Hermes, Lola by Marc Jacobs and Sonia Rykiel for H&M. 2010, also marked the first time she had walked for Chanel. Karlie had covers for Vogue China three times, Vogue Italia, Grey Magazine, W Korea, Vogue Turkey and Teen Vogue. She has also had editorials in just about every version of Vogue. Fashion TV also labeled Karlie 'First Face' for the Spring/Summer 2011 season. She also walked a total of 78 shows (A/W 2010 + S/S 11 + R 11 + HC A/W 2010) this year.
I absolutely adore this campaign, it is so romantic and sweet. Thursday Island's 10th Anniversary campaign stars Sean O'Pry and Marcelina Sowa in a series of lovely shots. Sean O'Pry is one of the top male supermodels around at the moment. Sean has starred in campaigns for Calvin Klein, Gap, Saks Fifth Avenue, Uniqio, Zara, DKNY, Barneys, Bottega Veneta, Gianfranco Ferre, Emporio Armani, Joop, Giorgio Armani, Bloomingdales, H&M, Lacoste and Trussadi. Marcelina Sowa is one of the fashion industries rising top models.
