Select lets go of talent.
Although between them they get more column inches than most of the super models, it was announced that Daisy Lowe, Alice Dellal and Pixie Geldof are no longer with Select Models. The agency has decided to let go of its talent section which had all three girls on its books. However, rumours are already flying around that the girls, who have featured in campaigns and on catwalks for the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Agent Provocateur and PPQ, were perhaps let go because of their partying habits and sociable lifestyles, which often overtake their modelling careers. However, latest news says all three girls were signed up by Next modelling agency after ‘their decision’ to leave Select. The plot thickens.
Tilda for Pringle.
Famed for her consistently edgy style, Tilda Swinton makes a surprising choice as the new face of Pringle of Scotland. It was announced that she will star in the spring summer 2010 campaign. Pringle’s director of communications is confident that she can suit both the fashion and mass appeal of the brand: “We want to show that Pringle is a Scottish brand, but go a little deeper…we believe Tilda is more inclusive.” The shoot will take place in the Scottish highlands, and we can’t wait to see what images turn up on our desks in the near future.
Move over Nigella!
Sophie Dahl, once famed for her voluptuous curves and now for her gamine style and Bambi eyes, has given cook-books a dash of fashionable glamour. Her book, ‘Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights’ is filled with her own recipe ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner and includes everything from healthy salads to decadent chocolate desserts. And now it seems that the people behind Jamie Oliver’s production company think she will be perfect in front of the camera to front her own cookery show based on the book. After Nigella, men now have another reason to get into baking.
