NYFW wrap up part three

Prepare for Takeoff

Technically they're not newcomers, but they started out in the industry as quiet as a whisper. When Paris and Milan commence, expect these girls to finish off with full blown banshee screams.

It is the season of returning models:

A young Irish lass by the name of Laragh McCann (Women) started off in Paris last season but has recently made her New York debut walking in shows like DKNY, Jill Stuart, Marc Jacobs, and Y-3. Look for out her in Europe. This just might be her breakout season.

Ukrainian Alyona Osmanova (Supreme) had an impressive SS07 show season, clinching Marc by Marc, Miu Miu, and Prada included. For FW07, she walked for the likes of Calvin Klein, Costello Tagliapietra, Jill Stuart, Marc Jacobs, Peter Som, Proenza Schouler, Thakoon, and Tuleh. Paris and Milan, here she comes!

Finnish Model School winner Suvi Koponen (Supreme) rode on the momentum of her SS07 Miu Miu and Prada (which she opened) exclusives, leading her to runway turns for Donna Karan, Luella, Malo, Matthew Williamson, TSE, and Zac Posen.

Kim, Sophie, Doutzen, Iek. This season's Dutch dutchess is Lara Stone (IMG). Returning for another amazing season, she's already done shows like Derek Lam, J. Mendel, Malo, Proenza Schouler, Richard Chai, Rag & Bone, and Zac Posen.

Belarusian Olga Sherer (One) has been doing shows for a while, starting out as a brunette. She then dyed her hair red and conquered Milan, Paris, and London last season. It certainly looks like she's poised for a more prominent FW07 season, opening Marc Jacobs and appearing in shows like Alice Roi, Badgley Mischka, Chado Ralph Rucci, Chaiken, DVF, Malandrino, Stærk, and Temperley.

Diana Moldovan (IMG), the Romanian 10 covergirl I blogged about before is at it again with a NY show list that includes 3.1 Phillip Lim, Anne Klein, Costello Tagliapietra, DVF, Heatherette, Karen Walker, Matthew Williamson, Marc Jacobs, Jill Stuart, Narciso Rodriguez, Peter Som, and Phi.

Brazilian Carol Sippel's (Supreme) life during NY Models involved doing scattered New York and Paris shows, but with representation by Supreme, she's finally establishing herself in New York with turns at Alexander Wang, Alice Roi, Bruce, Costello Tagliapietra, Jill Stuart, Monique L'huillier, Richard Chai, Tuleh, Vera Wang, and Yigal Azrouël.

Kinée Diouf (NY Models) did a few New York and Paris shows last season, reappearing in New York this season for Bruce, Carmen Marc Valvo, DVF, Heatherette, Tuleh, and Michon Schur. Prepare for Europe!

English peroxide blondes seem to be doing well recently, Georgia Frost (Marilyn) included. She walked for Diesel, Jill Stuart, Lacoste, Morphine Generation, Peter Som, Rag & Bone, Reem Acra, Rodarte, Ruffian, Sue Stemp, Tibi, TSE, and United Bamboo. Catch her at London FW right. She just needs more presence on the runway and she'll be unmatched in Paris and Milan.

Russia's Ekat Kiseleva (Trump) seems like she has been on hold for a stellar New York show season. Her sharp aerodynamic features are a contrast to fellow Siberian Vlada Roslyakova's soft doll-like face. You glimpsed her at shows like Behnaz Sarafpour, DVF, Lela Rose, Marc Jacobs, Monique L'huillier, Narciso Rodriguez, Proenza Schouler, Ruffian, Thakoon, and Tuleh.

Like Olga Sherer, American Alexandra Tomlinson (IMG) has been walking for seasons but she hasn't really had the highlight she needs. After a successful SS07 RTW & couture season, she's set for greater heights. In New York, she appeared at Chado Ralph Rucci, Behnaz Sarafpour, Derek Lam, Doo.Ri, Max Azria, Phi, Ruffian, Rag & Bone, Vera Wang, and Yigal Azrouël.

As I've blogged in previous posts, Next is harboring Poland's gems. Marcelina Sowa (Next) had a FW07 show season worthy of applause. 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alice Roi, Behnaz Sarafpour, Jill Stuart, Monique L'huillier, Proenza Schouler, Réyes, Rodarte, TSE, Tracy Reese, and Vera Wang. Credit those exquisite elfin features!

Do you have any returning favorites?

And now let's pause for a moment to say goodbye to a friend. Season after season, you housed weary a traveler from afar and countryman alike. You played music and provided warmth and shade. Under your wing, both createur and spectator reveled in creativity.

You will certainly be missed.

Goodbye Bryant!
