A Bird Swings Into Fabulous Flight

There's a new generation of models recently. Glorious tans that make them look like they've been bathing in melted bronze, legs that overtake even them, and a ferocious sense of youth to their presence. Take Daria Werbowy and Natasha Poly for example. However there's one model that will always be timeless in my opinion. Carmen Kass, despite being a little older than the standard model age bracket now, rivals all the girls on the catwalk with a walk that stomps past the competition. There has always been such intoxicating attitude to her, where you can almost detect a subtle smile in her eyes that says she's enjoying the limelight. And I for one like to see a model enjoying every minute of the clothes and aura. However what marks her as a model muse, is her ability for versatility. In so many of her editorials, a white light innocence drapes over her like a delicate fabric, twisting and comforting the fierce runway attitude into something much more fragile and beautiful in her expressions. Take this spread in Numero 105, called 'Like A Bird.' A model angel with the ability to turn up the heat on the runway.

    Keep up the great work!
