Magda

Magda-Laguinge short hairMagda Laguinge is my latest model crush. Such a girly, yet androgyne look – and of course, her short hair.  I got so obsessed with Hana’s hair last weekend I just wanted to cut my off immediately. I love that simple look short hair do. Anyway, Magda is seen all over for the moment and for instant you can follow a tiny bit of her model diary right here.

Anna

Anna Selezneva by Dario CatellaniWhen you aren’t modeling what do you enjoy doing?

When I have free time I love to go out with friends, do yoga, read good books, & travel. I love art museums and theatre too and of course horseback riding.

What is your favorite part of the job?

I love working with all those talented people, amazing designers and photographers. When the team comes together, this inspires people & gives me the most pleasure. Also traveling: I visited so many countries where I would probably not get to by myself.

Tell us one thing about yourself that is surprising.

I love to wake up very early in the morning.

What inspires you?

Music is my biggest inspiration. I have a musical education, I studied at a musical school in Moscow, playing piano and studying voice. Also old movies inspire me.

What lessons have you learned during your years in the business?

Being patient and being truly myself, and also two languages: English and French a little.

Is there anything you haven’t done just yet that you’d like to?

Get to a ring racing school.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

10 years is very long time. Let’s see in 10 years.

Anna is absolutely on my so called girl-crush list, she is a true beauty. Above she is captured by Dario Catellani for Models.com.

“Photographing at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc was truly magical,” said Avedon of the shoot. “Our beautiful women upon the rocks were based on the particular Sirens in Homer’s “The Odyssey,”—dangerously beautiful women who possessed the power to lure nearby sailors to their deaths with their enchanting music and bewitching auras.”
