Male Models - Rick Genest


I guess you know many female models, just like Candice Swanepoel, Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum, Karolina Kurkova, etc.! But can you tell me the names of famous men on the catwalk? That's no problem, because I will inform you about the (in my opinion) most important, special and hottest ones!

Rick with Nicola Formichetti
One of my favorite (actually, it IS my favorite ^^) male models is Rick "Zombie Boy" Genest (also called "Rico the Zombie"). He was born August 7th, 1985 in Montreal and grew up in Châteauguay. He is tattooed across the majority of his body (he got his first tattoo at the age of 16 and spent thousands of dollars since then, e.g for the skeleton-tattoo, which he and the tattoo artist Frank Lewis created together).
He was discovered by Lady Gaga's fashion director Nicola Formichetti in 2010, after he became famous through a known facebook fan page about himself.

His first appearance in the famous public was on January 19th, 2011, where Genest was featured in the MUGLER Fall/Winter Mens Collection headlining the collection on Muglers wbsite. Since then he became very fast known all over the world. He's on the cover of e.g Vogue Hommes Japan and GQ Style UK and he also was featured in the video of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"!

Just like a model 1

"What's that?" - You'll see looks, shown on the runway and worn by female celebrities! I'll do it in three parts à four stars and I'm going to give you some information about the outfit and add a few pictures showing the model and the celeb!


I'm gonna start with Lady Gaga, who was seen recently in New York wearing a brown/grey gown by Valentino (Fall 2011 collection), nude heelless shoes by Noritaka Tatehana, a fur stola and haed accessoiry made of bird feathers. The complete look was brown/nude/grey and in my opinion Gaga combined Valentino's maxi dress with perfect matching accessoires! Also her hair and makeup suited to the whole look! I really like the outfit, Gaga looked marvelous in Valentino!

 

Victoria Beckham, known as a singer, fashion designer, David's wife and a fashionable young woman wore her own collection as she shopped at Marc Jacobs in September. She combined the blush pink capped sleeved shift dress from her SS11 collection with sunglasses, nude platform heels and a black hand bag. But the most wonderful accessoire she had was her newborn Harper. "It's actually quite nice to get out of an elasticated waist and into fashionable clothes again.", she admitted about her outfit. I love Victoria's fashion and this look!




 



The next woman I want to talk about is a singer, born on the 25th of October 1984 in California, she was seen with pink hair recently and she won three MTV VMAs this year! You know who I mean? Yeah, right, it's Katy Perry! I'm in love with her geisha-style at the VMAs 2011! Katy wore a mini dress, embroidered with cherry blossom shaped sequins and crystals on a baby blue background made of neoprene sequins, designed by Atelier Versace (Fall 2011). She combined it with pink Jimmy Choo sandals, a parasol suiting the look and a cherry blossom flower hair accessoire in her candy pink hair. She was an eyecatcher on the red carpet! The pretty makeup and her pink lips, a Lorraine Schwartz's signature 18K pink diamond/gold 2B Happy bracelet and a beautiful coral/diamond ring completed the outfit. Katy, you're looking amazing as a geisha!










The last dress is designed by Zuhair Murad (Fall 2010) and was seen at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards at Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City. Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and the both younger sisters Kylie and Kendall Kardashian attended the event in August 2010, where Kim wore a black mini dress by Murad, which she combined with a black clutch bag and black platform pumps. Her wonderful smokey eye makeup, the dark/silver ring and the black nail polish she had applied made the outfit perfect! Well done, Kim, you look really fashionable!




So, that's the first part of "Just like a model"! I'll write two more post with four different looks by four different designers worn by four different women!
Anyway, I hope you liked this one! And I can tell you, you're gonna meet two celebs again in the next part! ;)
