Is she classical or is she perverse? The new Purple cover shot by Sorrenti decides Suvi's a little bit of both.
FYI: Suvi's one of those girls who is very on it, digitally speaking. Right after she opened that Prada (SS07 ) I had asked her if she had a Myspace page....etc... She replied:
Of course. I'm hooked. That and Microsoft messenger (text messengering) is how I keep up with my friends. On my page my friends and I make fun of how models are supposed to act . I get all these silly messages from guys trying to get dates and we just have a good laugh. I like to keep my personal life and my friendships and my family separate from my professional life. But its funny how people think they know your personality from seeing a picture of you. A lot of people expect me to be cold but my friends know better
That girl is a stealth super-star.

Given her upcoming bookings Adina Forisz, the 20 year old beauty from Budapest who opened the Prada SS08 show makes her Top 50 debut on MDC today. What is impeccable about the Adina Forisz narrative is the fact that she takes her time to let her path unfold properly. I like that she's been scarce and rare and that her management has been patient in moving her across the booking chessboard. Now that she's headed to NY for the shows, there's a big swell of anticipation. I was on my way back to CDG on that final Monday of Paris Fashion Week, when I popped into the IMG Paris offices to interview Adina for MDC+ my Spur magazine It-Girl column. I had been running around Paris with a little Flip camera in my back pocket, nabbing shots here and there so I just decided to tape the Q+A with it . My friend from frillr, Fabien saw the snippets and put together this 2 minute excerpt of my Adina moment. It ain't FashionFile slick but its the day-in-the-life truth. I love it when Adina smiles. Smart girl too. Though she doesn't flaunt it, the university she goes to in Budapest is extremely prestigious and very hard to get into . Much like Prada or Miu-Miu . Stay tuned for the full print interview on MDC later today.

Major's mesmerizing Mr Vigilant (very movie star, that name) is back for a second spin on TI, this time via these world premiere snaps by photographer Joe Lally, the newest contributer to answer our call for work from new talent. We're very pleased to have Joe lensing for us, so stay tuned for our exclusive Q+A where we'll get the full story on this rising young photographer. Don't you love the way Joe handles those colors (click on the small tiles for larger pics). Mr. Jason Kanner certainly knows who the stars are!

Now that the Money Girls list is locked and loaded, its time to swing the attention to the money-making men of modeling. Its a topic I'm sure the managers at Ford, Major, Public Image Worldwide, NY Models, Click, Red and Wilhelmina are bound to have a strong opinion about. MDC's Top 50 Men, for resaons of image, has always been very focused on those cutting edge, high fashion clients like the Calvins and Guccis and Pradas. But do the male models built on that platform cross-over to lucrative careers the way the women do?
It is certainly a very different playing field than with the women, as there are no big VS contracts or big pay day cosmetics deals to weigh. There are however, the fragrances and Ralph and Hugo and...I wonder how much a long-running underwear spot compensates the wearer of the underwear these days. That makes boys like Major's Ryan Vigalant worth their weight in booking gold. Ryan has been growing his hair out and positioning himself for that very money-market we'll spend all next week weighing. Here's Ryan looking as Jason Kanner, his manager describes, "fresh, manly and on!". Love the buzzwords Jason.
