Before Balmain




The preshow model walkthru is almost like a fashion show-within-a-fashion show

Comments on "Before Balmain"

 

Blogger i heart chiclets said ... (4:13 AM) : 

I love the over-the-knee boots on the first model, especially with the torn tights. This all looks so exciting as well, it`s just building up hype in anticipation of the actual show.

 

Blogger xAx said ... (4:25 AM) : 

Oh wow. Anya looks incredible. Do you have any more of these, i would love to see all the models especially Natasha Poly? Fab pics on here and style.com!!!

Anja Rubik is sooo great on the SS09 catwalk! She makes every item look gorgeous (and me want to wear it:))
Great pictures! :]

oh my god, anja does it so good..!

 

Blogger john benjamin pritchett said ... (5:36 AM) : 

Great look in each photo. The top one is my favorite with the tall boots, serrated pants, and "dark night with a billion stars shining" shirt. I'm curious about the clothing in the walkthru. Is it personal or what will be seen during the show?

 

Blogger metscan said ... (5:49 AM) : 

Can´t find anything interesting about these clothes.

 

Blogger Farren said ... (5:50 AM) : 

I will have to agree with you on this one. It's a fashion show on it's own!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:33 AM) :

Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (6:59 AM) :

Blogger Vicki said ... (8:35 AM) : 

ABSOLUTELY LOVE the second model's shoes!

 

OpenID chinesemodels said ... (8:58 AM) : 

Anja is just gorgeous!

 

Blogger Vintage Me New You said ... (9:01 AM) : 

i like the second look...simple, but very sexy!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:01 AM) : 

true indeed!
i admit that i was confused when i saw the pics.."was that really the balmain show this season?"
hahhaha

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:35 AM) : 

Scott- you are my hero. These pictures are magnificent. When is a book coming out??? Prints?????

 

Blogger Punkimeowzer said ... (10:01 AM) : 

I love everything about the first image. The leggings and boots are to DIE for! Of course the model looks fabulous.

 

Anonymous Ezekiel said ... (10:29 AM) : 

Well Done Anja!

 

Blogger starbahks said ... (10:29 AM) : 

You take such great runway shots!
Anja looks stunning.

 

Blogger Dr. Jean Grey said ... (10:41 AM) : 

the shoes in the second pic!!!

Fantastic!

 

Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (11:11 AM) : 

these are fantastic. that first shot is incredible!

 

Blogger Eugene Kim said ... (12:13 PM) : 

all about anja on this one...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:14 PM) : 

Maryna Linchuck is one of my new favorite models.

 

Blogger The Storialist said ... (12:22 PM) : 

I love seeing shots of the pre-show stuff. It looks so dark in there!

 

Blogger Chloe's Chic Conception said ... (12:31 PM) : 

I love these shots!!! The outfits definitely could be a runway show all on their own - I agree with you!!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:42 PM) : 

Could you give us a little more info? I gather the models are taking a pre-show walk in their own clothes? Is that the usual? Are photographers usually allowed to be there when that happens?

 

Blogger whyioughtta said ... (1:08 PM) : 

Especially love the first shot and first look (those pants are amazing). Also, I know they're models for a reason, but it's interesting to see how gorgeous these ladies are, even totally unretouched (I assume!)...their hair, skin, etc.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:19 PM) : 

Very curious point of view about the backstage.

Blogger Le Fashion said ... (1:34 PM) : 

I am obsessed with these shots!

Thank you! I cannot get enough of your blog :)

 

Anonymous veronique said ... (1:46 PM) : 

A model walkthru? What is that all about? How about the electricians? If I were there, I'd like to see them too?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:18 PM) : 

A little more than we mere mortals can pull off.

 

Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (2:57 PM) : 

Can't believe so many people are going on about the bag when he's wearing a totally awesome jacket that he underplays to perfection. This is how to wear a garment that could otherwise be very loud and scary. he keeps the rest of his outfit low-key and the first thing i really noticed was his strong handsome face accentuated by a shaved head. the coral T shirt is genius. Great post Sart. ps - today's photos for style.com are wonderful - the girl in the long furry coat and the beautiful pre-raphelite twins! - stunning!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:59 PM) : 

anja is my new favorite love love love her and balmain is AMAZING!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:38 PM) : 

i really hoped this would'nt become like just any other fashion blog poasting catwalk feeling like images..Best

 

Blogger monique said ... (9:59 PM) : 

Love Anjas boots and leggings.

If you're really interested you can do a version of these with a pair of scissors and some basic black leggings. Make a cut and rip them with your hands - don't cut these holes - it's all about ripping. They may be a little more "raw" but they'll look just as good (maybe even better in a more punk way). Now, will you look as good in them as Anja.... that's another story.

 

Blogger Tigress said ... (10:11 PM) : 

Those leggings...

Excuse me while I wipe the drool off of my keyboard.

 

Anonymous annie onymous said ... (11:59 PM) : 

this is much better than the actual balmain collection.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:36 AM) : 

wow, this is how models are normally dressed? I'm jealous...love every bit of what they're wearing though..especially, the first photo.

 

Blogger Marianna said ... (3:37 AM) : 

you know what i love most about these photos? when you click on them for a larger view, i love all the shiny polished black shoe tips you see on the sides. that's the detail I love most here.

 

Anonymous Bonoui said ... (4:23 AM) : 

I believe the shoes in the second shot that Isabeli Fontana is wearing are the actual Balmain shoes from the show. All the shoes were gorgeous I hope they hit the stores in the not too distant future.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:33 AM) : 

I can not see anything interesting on these photos, neither close or these girls, you made many more interesting photos just shooting on the street with some more feminine girls. Just my opinion.

Like in shakespear's plays!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:12 PM) : 

The knee high boots. Oh god, I want my me or my boyfriend to wear them. Even though it'll look ridiculous on two guys <3

 

Anonymous vix said ... (5:57 PM) : 

** Not sure if its been mentioned but Anja's leggings are by Wolford :)

 

Anonymous Isabelle said ... (6:20 PM) : 

LOVLEY pics! And thx for the good blog! Well done! /Sweden ;)

 

Anonymous Ian said ... (9:55 PM) : 

The jackets were incredible in this collection - So structured and almost balenciaga-like in architecture.

I bet Anya Rubik was as incredible during the run-through as she was at the actual show!

 

Anonymous modediktator said ... (3:36 AM) : 

I LOOOOVE Balmain! ♥♥♥♥
What I love as well is to see what models are wearing in their free time. Thanks for bringing and showing us the style of them and other very fashionable people!!

 

Blogger Negar said ... (5:34 PM) : 

Reminds me of Alexander Wang.

For the love of fashion, where can I purchase these cutout Wolford leggings?! I've been searching relentlessly..

Blogger rachel said ... (9:27 PM) :

Anonymous fashion15 said ... (8:53 PM) :

Blogger A-M said ... (3:21 PM) : 

Anja has always been one of my number ones, and there is only one thing I can say about her: she is stunning!!!

 

Blogger Natasha said ... (5:45 PM) : 

want want want Anja's outfit.

 

Blogger Alexandra said ... (11:27 PM) : 

I spot Maryna!

 

Blogger Rhys said ... (8:35 PM) : 

Ooooh, The first pic is so edgy and sexy. Though I love the way her hands are so dainty. Also while writing this i spotted the candelabra in the back of the first pic, which is quite beautiful against the pitch blackness.
Stunning girl stunning picture.
Well done old boy

wowwwww. picture 1 and 3 are absolutely genius

 

Anonymous chris said ... (5:17 AM) : 

In my experience-
Yes, models are well dressed- they have insider knowledge and coathanger physiques!
Yes, they wear their own clothes in walk-throughs.
Yes, often they wear the shoes, as they can be problematic.
The point of a walkthrough, depending on the show, is to check lighting, time the music, and familiarise models with the routine. And also, of course, to make sure it looks good!

 

Blogger la femme said ... (5:20 PM) : 

I'm envious. Balmain would be a show to see.

 

Blogger Allison said ... (8:07 PM) : 

the first woman is gorgeous.
i love her torn tights

 

Blogger Cotton Candy said ... (8:52 PM) :
