Elves Take Over Fashion
June 18, 2011 § Leave a comment
Watch out! They’re everywhere: on magazine covers, in editorials, and now in Prada campaigns! The newly released images from Prada’s Fall 2011 collection feature new model Kelly Mittendorf, whose face makes me suspect she was scouted from either Middle Earth or the Keebler Factory.
And her last name is Mittendorf! That’s perfect! Perhaps she’s from Zelda? Either way, her look is currently trending, seeing as a slew of other elfin models have recently nabbed some of the industry’s most coveted campaigns. Dutch sensation Saskia de Brauw, for example, is the face of Versace for Fall 2011 and landed the covers of both French and Italian Vogue this past March. Here’s a particularly elfin image of her from a recent spread in Dazed & Confused.
The men’s market has also caught on to this trend, with Aiden Andrews leading the pack. His pointy ears, nose, and eyebrows have landed him editorials in V and Arena Homme +, among others. Here, see him in a spread from Fiasco Magazine F/W 10 looking like a high fashion klingon.
