Newbs & Blonds–Sixty-six models later, we made it to the final hour. First was Paul Boche. Two castings in toll and somehow he is on a plane headed somewhere every time a shoot is around the corner, so any time is appreciated with one of our favorite blond models. Then there’s Leebo Freeman, after a year of circuit editorials, Hollywood called and somehow the budding star still made it back to New York for fashion week. Before the dynamite personality slips through town again, we must make a note to get a shoot done or two. Finally, we don’t know what it is about Ford boys, but they are so cool and refreshed. New kids on the block Brennen Steines and Joe Hartmann made the journey over. Both delightful if course and Joe made us chuckle with a review of a lovely outing shopping around the neighborhood. Representative of a roster of fresh Ford talent, we cannot wait to get in the studio, the two definitely left a lasting impression. / Photos by Nikolai de Vera.
