Looks like Cindy Crawford is getting back into fashion - she is now represented By Planit M, a new agency in NYC
Maybe its time somebody digs out some good brown-haired, brown-eyed mods. It may also be the right time for Diana Kovalchuk to take fashion modelling more seriously.

There are roumors that Gerald Marie and A Kittler won their battle against C Larpin for control of Elite - if I was GM, I would get rid of any Elite business in NYC, open up an Elite Paris office in its place (just to piss off some locals), ally with J L Brunel and any other playboy old-timer still able to do business - and give everyone hell!

Tatjana Patitz will be active in the upcoming months, as well.

If you wanted to spit on R Lauren's face, you finally have the chance - his face will appear on Jamaican postage stamps.

The person who discovered "new" IMG star Daria Werbowy sued IMG (in Cleveland?) for refusing to pay the 10% "mother agent" fee stipulated in their agreement. Interestinly, she wants the money starting June 7 1998 - does this mean that Daria has been modelling for IMG for some six years??? Daria is 21 y.o.
Update: A Blog visitor informs me that Daria WAS represented 6/7 years ago by Elite in Canada...

More proof that Giorgio Armani has lost it completely - after switching to IMG and other "hip" models for his campaigns (does he know Amanda Moore appears naked, and on top of a dude, in an Italian Pinko ad?), publically begs LVMH to buy him out, puts all his money in a dozen new luxury hotels instead of expanding his fashion empire (tells you how bright a future fashion has) -- now he gets in a fight with vogue-friendly NY Times, because their hacks didn't like his latest men's collection!!!
He apparently has "persistent and significant philosophical difference with the newspaper's fashion desk".
If he hires more AW/Meisel operatives, and uses more "NYC cool" models, maybe he'll get better reviews.
Is there a single man who decides which clothes to buy after reading men's collection show reviews - and in the NY Times????? Geesh!

Daria has been modelling since she was 14 with Elite models, she later switched to Elmer Olsen (who has been primarily mothering her to other agencies).

Thanks Elite person (??) !!!

Was that mentioned in any of the stories about her?
Or she was supposed to be another great IMG discovery, like Isabelli and so many others???

I'd be willing to do that regardless-- if only for the fact that he replaced the lovely Lonneke Engel with that unibrowed hag Fillipa Hamilton. Sure, Fillipa might have a body like an angel's-- but her forehead makes her look like a Neanderthal throwback.

In response to FV - What you say is true, IMG may not deserve credit for it, but contractually may be setup to receive the same because of cross agency agreements. Can't comment for sure, because I don't know what the exact agreement was.
