New Male Model Faces Fall 2011


Jack Vanderhart, Jack Manhood, Tomas Guarracino, Tim Meiresone

During the fashion weeks, I took a break from Model Mondays. As a matter of fact I took a break from learning new models period. I refused to frequent the forums, and I was content in staying with the little list that I had built up of names, and not expand. Well now that fashion week is over, I couldn’t deny myself. I had to go back and find a few models to make up for lost times and these are my new male model faces for the Fall 2011 season… well to start us off at least.


Jack Vanderhart– Jack Vanderhart was one of the chosen boys for the show season. When I heard through the grapevine that a new boy had wrangled a Calvin Klein exclusive, and he was based out of Australia with a scar on his cheek, I could only shake the grapevine to see what would fall out. Out fell 16 year old Vanderhart who’s been shot for a Hot Boys & Cute Dogs Calendar, GQ, and Vogue Austalia. There’s just something about that scar on that perfect cheekbone that screams shoot me, and I forsee a strong editorial season for Jack. Jack is represented by VNY(New York) and EMG(Australia)

Jack Manhood– To be entirely honest I laughed when I heard his name. I laughed while looking at the polaroid and accessing a face that seemed so now, so of the moment that my laugh trailed off. With no particularly stunning credits to his name, besides some work for Topman, Jack has a look that says relevant to me. Maybe a little cuckoo, and if I am then so be it but Mr. Manhood is going to have to be my wild card of the bunch.
Jack is represented in London(FM) and Paris(Success)
Fall 2011 Runway – Cassette Playa, Christopher Shannon

Tomas Guarracino– Mr. Guarracino almost got passed over when I was looking for new faces. The reason was I saw his face in so many top Milan shows I was positive that he had to have a bit of experience. The Calvin Klein Spring 2011 ad is what made me look him up and I found that, he was indeed a newbie but certainly one with a strong future ahead of him.

Tomas is with Bananas(Paris), Wilhelmina, Civilies(Argentina).
Fall 2011 Runway: Hermes, D&G, Ermenegildo Zegna, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Robert Geller(he also walked in Buenos Aires Fashion Week).

Tim Meiresone– The opener of the Prada show, Tim Meiresone has already bagged a coveted runway position. Now whether or not he’ll follow up with the needed editorial season to ensure that he’s one to watch and possibly bank on, we have yet to know. He has surely gotten off to a good start though in a Vogue Hommes Japan editorial. Meiresone already has representation in Paris(Nathalie), Milan(Independent), Copenhagen(Scoop), and where his mother agency is located in Brussels(Dominique).
Fall 2011 runway: Prada, Costume National, Canali, Z Zegna, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin and Cerruti

COUTURE: Jean Paul Gaultier FW 2010/2011

Models: Karlie Kloss(Next), Jessica Stam(IMG), Emina Cunmulaj(Marilyn), Thana Kuhnen(Nathalie)
Collection: Jean Paul Gaultier F/W 2010/2011 in Paris
So Jean Paul Gaultier was at the least… sultry! Whereas it wasn’t the overt couture designs that I had hoped for, it seems that everyone is currently scaling back so I decided to take what I could get. Looks like Jessica Stam’s brought an instant smile to my face. Maybe it was because of the color, I’m not sure but all I know is that on instant sight, my pearly whites were showing. Looks like Karlie Kloss’s, who opened, were strong, feminine, and still sexy. Of course there were those looks that may not have been exactly wearable outside of costume event besides for women like Lady Gaga and Daphne Guiness, others like Thana Kuhnen had the right dash of glamour, but laid back approach that I LOVE!

SHOWPACKAGE: Nathalie Mens SS 2011

Sooo… show packages are something that I’ve always loved to look at but I’ve never posted. There’s a few reason that they’ve never been posted… one because I wasn’t quite sure how to post them and secondly because of our 4 picture guideline would be definitely overruled. Well after considering it some more I feel like show packages are a way to make sure that you can begin to become familiar with the models as actual people in the industry and not just animated hangers. A show package can show us many things including new faces and trends in agency castings. Lastly, I also like these castings because to me they give the agency a sort of personality depending on how they decide to present their models.

See Nathalie Mens‘ show package(sadly because of the way I downloaded the pictures, they don’t get bigger… I’ll try to remedy this for the next packages).
Of course I’ve gone through and picked out my favorites and some of the models look a tad familiar to me. One that stands out of course is Shaun Ross. I think I first spotted him over at the Jak and Jill blog in Stevie Boi shades, and then because his name seemed to be in the online fashion circles I run in, I did a bit of digging. The albino model has his own blog and will be the first albino model of my knowledge that will walk in Europe if he gets cast this season. I hope that he will.
