Last year, V named Amanda Laine their model search winner. Since then, the Canadian's walked everything from Alex Wang to McQueen, Miu Miu to Vuitton. She's been in V (obviously), Interview, POP, Numero, W, Bazaar and more. Needless to say, Stephen Gan's eye for runway potential has a one up on Tyra's. So now the mag's teamed up with Ford Models and thrown Alexander Wang onto their judging panel to find the next superstar. They've already received over 6000 online entries, but you have until June 29th to submit your profile on their site. Finalists will be announced July 3rd and from there the winner gets an editorial in V and a contract with Ford, which is kind of priceless. Gan wants to, "unearth the next classic female beauty with a twist." If that's you, you better get a move on.
The Best Shoes of the Fall 2012 Season
We've scoured the Fall 2012 collections for the most amazing shoes, and it was easy, because there were plenty. The best part? Footwear options for Fall 2012 are a lot more reasonable than their Spring 2012 counterparts. (Remember those 6 inch Versace lucite wedges?) Fall 2012 saw lots of wide heels and mary-janes on the runway, and sometimes both simultaneously--like at Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Marni. Knee-high black boots ruled at Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, Givenchy, and Rick Owens, and ladylike pumps could be found at Lanvin, Nina Ricci, and Jil Sander. Of course, if you're looking for something crazy, look no further than Alexander McQueen's heel-less fur shoes. Impractical, but so lovely. Take a look at all the amazing shoes from Fall 2012 and just try to pick a favorite. It's near impossible.
