skye stracke at blugirl SS09/sonny vandevelde
Time for a little model update. We know how well Myf Shepherd and Abbey Lee Kershaw are doing – and Shepherd’s blockbuster freshman RTW season shows no sign of slowing down on the last Paris leg. On Sunday Shepherd walked in the prestigious Nina Ricci show (alongside the Anne Valerie Hash and Bruno Pieters shows). According to her agency moreover, she has also just snagged her latest biggie: today’s Christian Dior show. And Shepherd is not the only Australian cleaning up on the SS09 runways.
I posted shots of Skye Stracke three weeks ago at the Karen Walker and Willow shows in New York.
Stracke has walked in at least 20 shows so far across the four cities, including the blue chip brand names Missoni, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Moschino, Lacoste and Nina Ricci.
At Nina Ricci, Stracke's ethereal beauty was a perfect fit with the dream-like romanticism of creative director Olivier Theyskens' spring collection, which groaned with fairytale slip dresses and ballgowns:

One might assume that Galliano muse Alexandra Agoston is also a good prospect for at least today's Christian Dior show, not to mention John Galliano later in the week.
Agoston flew straight to London, where she walked in at least seven shows, including Roksanda Ilincic, Jasper Conran, Paul Costelloe and the London Fashion Week debut of Josh Goot:

Stephanie Carta, meanwhile, scored at least seven Milan shows, including the prestige Jil Sander and Alberta Ferretti gigs.

Alice Burdeu appeared to be MIA on Milan’s runways – at least in the high-profile shows that appeared on big-hit sites such as style.com and wwd.com.
According to online buzz – and as confirmed by Burdeu’s agency Priscilla’s – Burdeu was in fact in Milan last week. Whatever did, or did not, go down there for Burdeu, she popped back up on the SS09 radar in Paris on Saturday night – in the Sirivannavari show.
Que? That would be the second consecutive Paris ready-to-wear show for Sirivannavari, which is designed by no less than Thailand’s Crown Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana. And heaven help anyone who asks any tricky questions of the designer – as Fully Chic discovered last October.
In addition to Burdeu and Carta, the Priscilla's agency has three other models in Paris this week: Emily Trimble-Thompson, Chelsea Scanlan and Christina Carey.
Veteran Emma Balfour followed up her runway reboot at Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang in New York, with the Giles Deacon show in London – and is currently shooting with POP magazine.
Viviens' Emma Ishta walked in Enrico Coveri and Laura Biagiotti in Milan – and is now also in Paris.
Chadwicks’ Mallory Jansen and Georgie Wass both did London shows and the agency currently has three girls waiting on confirms for shows in Paris: Megan Hind, Gemma Scott and Olivia Henderson.
After her great run in New York, Chadwicks' Fabienne Vanderhaeghen bowed out of the rest of the SS09 season.
The reason? Vanderhaeghen is, according to sources, considered "too short” for Europe.
That's showbiz, folks.
