When you first start a modelling career it can be a bit daunting, but the more assignments you do the more confidence you gain, making the whole experience more enjoyable. Many models would be grateful for the opportunity to get some more experience at the start of their career, even if it did mean working for free!
This was the case when student Melanie approached Models Direct looking for four models who were willing to participate in a fashion show to raise funds for Cancer Research. Of course we were more than willing to help out and our team had no problem finding the four women to take part.
The lucky models were Rebecca H, Rebecca B, Carly and Emma. This was the first catwalk assignment for all of them and they had a great day. It was made even more special as it was for such a good cause.
“It’s everything I ever wanted to do so being a model for the day felt like the beginning of my dreams” comments Rebecca H. “It was a great experience and I would love to do it again.”

This is floating around the internet at the moment as probably the funniest photo from London Fashion Week (18th-22nd September) and here at Models Direct we can’t help but chuckle.
US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour seems very unimpressed by being stuck next to the fashion youngsters Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof at the Twenty8Twelve show.
A stern-faced Wintour looks obviously annoyed (look at her body language!) sitting next to Alexa and Pixie, who hugged and pulled faces throughout the show.
Ok, so if I’d have been there they probably would have annoyed me too, but does anyone else think Anna should lighten up a bit?
Of all the people that could appear on the cover of fashion magazine British Elle who would be most likely? I’m guessing Boris Johnson would be low on that list, if you’d even consider him at all!
But, as part of the 25 years of London Fashion Week celebrations, the Mayor of London is the ‘cover-boy’ of special edition copies of October’s issue. He’s also provided the editor’s letter for the magazine, one of only three blondes who have written it!
Boris obviously felt honoured to be given the opportunity, saying: “Lorraine took what for many might seem a huge risk. Who would have expected me to grace an Elle cover – or any other fashion magazine? The capital leads the world in producing innovative designers, so I’m thrilled to have been involved in this special issue celebrating 25 years of London Fashion Week.”
Is Boris Johnson about to get a new fashion icon status? Whatever next!?
October’s edition of Elle UK celebrating 25 years of London fashion is out now.

Filming for the next Sex And The City film has officially begun!
Hollywood starlet Sarah Jessica Parker has been spotted in New York filming for the latest instalment of the franchise in which she portrays writer and fashionista Carrie Bradshaw.
She’s looking very stylish in this snapshot…
And it’s a blast from the past in this photo! This is taken from a flashback scene in the movie which shows Carrie first arriving in New York City.
After the immense success of the first film, it’s not surprising that things are on track. We can’t wait to see it!
The first photographs of Kate Moss’s Autumn/Winter ad campaign for this season’s Topshop range are here, and they look awesome. We love the clothes here at the Models Direct offices, and will be heading out to buy a few items as soon as they become available. What do you think?
