I popped over to the Women/Supreme offices last week just as the kids who work there were distributing popsicles. After assuring myself that a little sugar and ice never killed nobody I indulged, even while clocking that Paul's new intern was rocking some pretty genius moccasins with very 70's shorts. Work hard. Give them outfits. Now these are some real fashion kids!

One day last Fall, photog Michael Schwartz rang me up to come hang out at a shoot . "Are you insane?" I replied. "Its a SATURDAY!" " Its with Natasa V," he explained. I dropped the phone and called a car service. I love Natasa V and I love watching her work. Which is what she did at this shoot. What she gave to the camera was so epic I had to pull out the Flip and record. It was like watching a rock star put it down. She also told me the funniest story about a Helmut Newton casting experience she once had. Let's just say Newton's conduct was all the things you would expect of Newton but that told me what a smart model NV really is to understand the historic ramification of a booking like that . NV's new crop via Guido is killer. I'm absolutely in awe of Natasa's current edits in V and W which to my mind proves that she is one of the best models of the Zeroes and well on her way to legendary. IMHO lol. I can't wait to see all the other stunning work she has in store for us this season.

Listening right this minute to Aphex Twin's “Logon Rock Witch” from the Richard D James LP and its a great backdrop given all the talk of “witches” that flew around yesterday. Are witches going to rule the Fall/Winter runway season? Who knows but they sure would be a great corrective to all the florals and prints and color clashes ruling the edits this season. I wasn't in the office on Thursday evening when the messenger dropped off a copy of the Supreme show package so I popped by Mr Rowland's inner chamber Friday afternoon to check it out. Every time I catch up with Paul, I try to suss out the source of his ability to pick that one girl on his board that goes on to the Italian Vogue covers and the W shoots and the Prada runways. Last season it was Meghan Collison. There is a girl in the new package, Katriina who I loved, loved and loved when I first saw her at Rad Hourani's SS08 show in Paris. She's the kick off girl in the new Supreme show package and if NY bites that would be a thrilling thing to see. So how does Paul see success so far in advance? How does he consistently see stardom in girls that other managers reject? “I'm a witch ,” joked Paul.

It's good to have your antenna up these days. A few posts back TI dug up a 90's Mugler shoot for Playboy. Today we got the hot tip that Playboy France just got a blue chip launch. The first issue featured Juliette Binoche on the cover shot by Karl Lagerfed. Here's a sneak peek of the second cover shoot (December) shot by Greg Kadel featuring actress Julie Orden. The styling was done by the inimitable Natasa Vojnovic. Click on the image then choose the "Original" option for the full Julie O experience. That makes it all the more fetishistic, right?

It's almost December which means all the big SS08 camps are pretty much wrapped, all the blue chip fashion covers are spoken for and all that is left to do over the next two weeks is Art Basel Miami Beach, Christmas shopping and holiday partying until you start to loathe champagne. But that doesn't mean that there are not still ch-ch-changes abrew. Like today' s text scoop. "Natasa-Vojnovic-Now-At-Women". Ah Natasa. The last time we saw her we got into a hoop jumping competition with Miss V. TI's jaws dropped at her uhmmm...flexibility. Legendary that one....Also this weekend in London ID magazine will be shooting its "New Supermodels" issue. So this is the new modelwatcher's assignment. Draft up a list of the girls who you think will be declared "New Supermodels" by ID and drop your vote as to who you think will be nailing that coveted cover. Everytime a dedicated modelwatcher gets a girl right, TI will answer your post with a "Confirmed" response....And had a sit down today at New York Models with the brilliant Sunniva, who dipped into NY for an exclusive swirl of requests this week. She's got a Master's degree in Molecular Biology, a beautiful little baby girl and is still one of the coolest faces in modeling right this sec. TI LOVED that late 90's generation of Audrey/Erin/Karen/Sunniva/Guinivere and felt a bit like a model groupie talking with this definitive cool girl.Stay tuned for an exclusive peek tmrw morn at MDC/OTM.
