Today's rumor? Tanya D. for BCBG. The Belarusian model stormed every catwalk this season, starred in her fair share of editorials and has now, allegedly, landed a much deserved campaign. We wonder if she'll stay on as the face of Michael Kors. We also wonder how she keeps getting booked for such all American designers when her stunning face screams, "Versace!"
Monday Model Roundup: Tanya D.'s New Name, DNA's Brits and Marilyn's Margherita
Truth: we love models. So that's why we try our bestest to stay up to date on the ins-and-outs of the modeling world. (It's a crazy place, for sure.) Luckily a little birdy helped us out, with all this useful information. For starters Belarussian blonde Tanya Dziahileva has moved to Marilyn in Paris. Not such big news, except that her new model card spells her last name as "Dyagileva." I'm sure the pronunciation in Belarussian is similar, but for us English-speaking folks, Dyagileva is no easier to pronounce or spell. Perhaps her new agents wanted to give the model a fresh start? I mean, she has been working since age 13.... Also heading to Marilyn is Margherita Missoni, who leaves IMG's boards for the Paris-based agency. It's an interesting choice for an international socialite, since Marilyn has almost no celebrities or socialites, while IMG's board includes fellow social butterflies Julia Reston Roitfeld, Liv Tyler, and Elisa Sendaoui. This could mean Margherita is attempting to go a more high-fashion route, although her family ties to Missoni have kept her from branching too far away. She basically wears Missoni to every event, which is more dedication and loyalty than most models show to anything.
