Brazil's most famous export just might be Gisele Bundchen. Her various campaigns have made her the highest earning model on the planet. Her record breaking 25 million dollar contract with Victoria's Secret helped her gain widespread recognition beyond the fashion industry.

Fashion Forward: Celebs add some bling to their looks - ByDonna Freydkin and Alison Maxwell, USA TODAY

 

Retailers widen options, including more modest clothes - By Jayne O'Donnell , USA TODAY

 

"Modesty in young women's clothing is getting a boost from the dismal economy".

 

"Whether it's more of a fiscal or moral shift, understated girls' clothing may indeed be making a comeback"

 

"Whether it's more of a fiscal or moral shift, understated girls' clothing may indeed be making a comeback.

 

Even flashy Chanel designer Karl Lagerfelddeclared "bling is over" and noted the economy is prompting a "new modesty," in an interview with the International Herald Tribune this year.

Retail consultant Ken Nisch says the trend is more moderation than modesty, but the effect may be the same.

 

"It's not because of a moral revival but about sensibility," says Nisch, chairman of retail brand and design firm JGA. "What's provocative has often been ultra trendy, and it just doesn't make sense to buy things you can't wear for a lot of occasions anymore."

 

The evidence is found everywhere, from the baggy and shapeless "boyfriend" jeans that are replacing skin tight ones for many young women to the basic fashions seen all over New York these days, says Meredith Barnett, CEO of retail boutique website StoreAdore.com".

How To Wear Pleated Pants For A Modern Vibe

Worn the right way slouchy, pleated pants are just the right breezy alternative for hot summer days.

If you can see the nuance, you’re gonna love pleated pants again!

It’s all in the cut and how your style your pleat-front pants, or even pleated shorts.

Style Points:

There’s a bit of slouch to them this time around the pleats are softer and more drapey rather then the hard-edge, crisp pleating of years ago. Drop-crotch pants look better with pleats too.

  1. The drape continues to a tapered leg rather than the boxy and matronly hem of years ago.
  2. They are worn with clean and simple tops to let the pleats be the style focus.
  3. A rolled hem makes them super cute, modern and casual.
  4. Attention goes to your feet with a tapered leg, be sure your shoes are fab!
  5. Platform sandals make them perfect for dressier occasions.
  6. Keep the look off-handed to avoid a dated feel.

Fit Tips:

  1. Although it would seem that the pleats are camouflage for a pouchy tummy, it’s quite the opposite. A rounded belly causes the pleats to spread open so this style really looks better on those with a lean midsection.
  2. Be sure there is enough drape in your thigh so the pleats create soft volume and don’t pull or grab in the hips. Buying a size up and taking in the waist may be in order.

FASHION SUPER MODELS

Models.com

Let's face it. The clients, especially the blue chip ones are the stars of fashion now and it's their choices, selections and bookings that make and break models today.

From the daily call sheets of photographers like Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Mert n Marcus, Craig McDean, David Sims,Inez and Vinoodh and Steven Klein for clients like US, Italian, French and British Vogue, W, V, Numero,Bazaar,Pop and Another can be culled a clear message about who are the most wanted models of the moment.

It is also brands like Prada, Vuitton, Chanel, Dior, Calvin Klein, Estee Lauder, Lancome and Maybelline among others who provide the platform that makes stars of models. In an increasingly competitive market, flooded with hundreds of "cool editorial girls", its the campaigns and contracts that are the final index of how crucial a model is at any given moment.

Consequently here are the faces of the future, MODELS.com's Top 50 Working Models listing.

As for the iconic faces like Kate, Gisele, Carolyn and Natalia? Why they now have their very own listing in the form of MDC ICONS.
