From the Cobrasnake to Narciso Rodriguez via TFS

New York Fashion Week shows are great for any model's resumé. But let’s face it, with up to 300 shows every season in that city, there are some pretty low-profile gigs. Not so Narciso Rodriguez, one of the biggest US fashion names, who kicked off his career making a wedding dress for Carolyn Bessette Kennedy – and most recently designed the controversial red and black emsemble worn by Michelle Obama for Barack Obama’s Victory address on November 5. Stephanie Carta just scored the Narciso Rodriguez show – after hinting that she might via Twitter. After her recent appearance at Givenchy's haute couture show in Paris, nice to see Carta distancing herself further still from her unfortunate summer Cobrasnake photoop. Joining Carta on the runway was Catherine McNeil. Here is the complete Narciso Rodriguez collection on And here is an update on which Oz models are in town and what they are doing.

Blah, if only Carta had a nice non arrogant personality I might understand

Catherina and the others however are perfect examples of beautiful personalities, faces and career

i just updated the list before you left that last comment. i did a post on monday about shanina shaik.

thanks for the tupper headsup. if that's her in DKNY (#26 - the only model not ID'd by then it's a wonder her agency did not mention it. then again vivien's does seem pretty tied up at the moment booking models for swim fashion week. they are getting back to me.

Chowder, I think the presentation Vanessa was in was 6119, and I think I saw her somewhere else too, but I can't remember which show.

Also Julia Ikonomou @ Cosmopolitan/NY Models, has been doing a couple of smaller shows: Andy & Debb, Twinkle... possibly more.

I'm also wondering if Stacey Grant @ Camerons/Ford has done (or will do) any shows this season; she looked amazing at Ungaro pre-fall!

Chowder said...

Thanks Patty, I've enjoyed your coverage..was really just expressing surprise at Shanina??!
and B.. thanks!
