We start the new year off with our first Model Monday, Silviu Tolu. A name that’s heavily connected with the recent Guess campaigns, and thus a 60’s like Elvis inspired style, Silviu has not seen a sudden outpouring of work due to one particular event like some models, but instead seems to be gaining steam slowly, booking job after job, which in the long run may be better. Represented by agency favorite Red Model Management(NY), Silviu most recently appeared on FIASCO Magazine’s most recent issue, The Black and White Issue. With a piercing gaze Tolu is most definitely one of my picks for ones to watch for this upcoming year.

I’ve always been one to believe that success can be replicated. I think it can be studied, pertinent principles can be extracted and then reapplied in a variety of circumstances and one will again arrive at success. Because of that I frequently watch stories about or involving successful people. I’m not going to lie and say that I know everything about Oprah, because I don’t(I actually don’t think I’ve ever watched an entire episode of her show) but I will say that when I saw the video I jumped at the chance to watch her excel, once again, and even get into the head of another very successful person, Jay-Z.
If you’re wondering who all will be wearing Tom Ford Spring 2011 on the red carpet for the Oscars, well it will come down to one name. Mr. Ford said that in attempt to step out of the entire “step and repeat” game, and give his clients the exclusivity they need, want, and deserve, after the nominees are named he will choose one woman, and one woman only. He will approach this woman and offer to dress her for the awards. Let the competition begin.
