Model Madness New Comer | Chiharu Okunugi. Last season, Chiharu Okunugi caught the attention of Ashley Brokaw—who casts shows for Prada, Balenciaga, and Miu Miu. Style.com placed her on their top 10 New Comers for F/W 2013 catwalks.
This Model Madness Rising Star is Anais MaliShe born in Nice, France, to a mother from Chad (Africa) and a father from Poland, she is fluent in French and English. She has an elegant look, mixed with the new French Freshness, but can reve it up with a little twitch of her sexy body. “I found her to be fashion conscious. She knew the names of the design houses and what they represented. And has a true understanding of how accessories work, when to wear them with what and where.” Says: Bethann Hardison for Vogue Italia

Who would have ever thought that when we started the Model Madness files that we would witness for real AKA Hanne Gaby Odiele in action. This past fashion week for the A/W 13 shows, it seemed she was getting her thug passion on. Her street-style was thugged out the minute she hit the concrete catwalk.
The creative team at Diesel are listening to women and bringing the skinny jean back, with Amber Le Bon and the SKINZEE SS13 Collection.
Grace Mahary is a new comer, only 2 years in the modeling game and she is riding her star to the top. This past season we had the chance to follow the Bambi faced Canadian-born model around Paris and found out that indeed she is a tomboy at heart, humble, and thankful for all the opportunities that modeling has offered her.
For A/W 2013 Collection Paul & Joe went Voguette. The brand took a look at what the French Vogue editors wear from show to show and appointment to appointment. These ladies embrace the androgyny look and make sure the pieces they choose to wear are versatile. These looks always result in a wardrobe, which is the epitome of the La Parisienne attitude!
After an exhausting search these past few days I stumbled on The Society Model Management (www.thesocietymanagement.com), a new model agency in New York City who is repping the likes of Lindsey Wixson, Sigrid Agren, Cora Emmanuel and Grace Jones. The Cut says that "stylists and casting directors often referred to the Society as 'the Secret Agency', because very little was known about this soon-to-be-opened branch of Elite Paris (Not to be confused with Elite New York, which operates on a different network)".
