MODEL CRUSH: CHARLEE FRASER

000000543340-Charlee_Fraser-squaremedium

Me being the fashionista that is all about fashion, style, and anything remotely related to such, I am obsessed with models and their careers. You could say sincerely that I have “Model Crush” LOL but seriously what person that loves fashion doesn’t. You gotta either love them, envy them, or follow their careers.

We have all seen endless model images all over magazine pages and social media. I seriously believe models always blaze trails wherever they stand. From Alek Wek, Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, and Linda Evangelista just to name a few, these beautiful ladies have made their mark in the modeling industry. They have laid the foundation for future models and have left them a few pages in the book on how to be successful in this demanding industry. Yes its grueling but if it weren’t for some of these ladies, we wouldn’t have the beauties that are popping up in various social media outlets, magazines and elsewhere. Agreed? Yes?

Today I would love to introduce you to one phenomenal model and she’s a true bombshell. Her name is Charlee Fraser and she’s worked with several high end Australian photographers. ¬†She’s from New South Wales and she’s is making true waves in the modeling industry by appearing in several campaigns, editorial shoots, and runway shows. She is also from the indigenous Awabakal people of New South Wales. How cool is that? She’s very photogenic and its obvious that the camera loves her in every way possible. She is signed to Ford New York and Premier in London. We should be seeing more of this Australian beauty all over social media, runways, and magazines. Let’s check out her pics and really envy this beauty, shall we?

Her eyes look into your soul, can you feel her passion?

These pictures definitely take me back to a time when at 15 years old and I wanted to be a model. At 5 feet tall and 100 pounds I was told I was too short therefore I quickly deferred my love of modeling for photography, reading about fashion and blogging about it. Since then, I have not felt discouraged but it has empowered me to find a different outlet to express my love of fashion. I now read as many fashion magazines, blogs, and keep up with my social media accounts as much as I can. Some may say its excessive but I beg to differ. The more you keep up with whats going on in the fashion industry the more you learn and apply that toward your ultimate goal of success. Besides fashion is always evolving its never consistent and still therefore my career needs to be evolving as well.

Hope you liked this featured model and look out for more of her work online and in magazines. Check out her instagram here: @Charleefraser –¬†Tumblr: Charleefraser.tumbler.com

Model: Poppy Okotcha

Today I wanna talk about models, you know – the models that you see in runway fashion shows and magazine covers. You may ask yourself, whats so different about this subject? I’ve heard it all before, what about it? In reality, you have head about it but the models that you see are the typical norm thats all over the fashion scene.

Let me explain – models nowadays are normally white, slim, tall, fair-skinned and they have the hair that looks like they just came out of a Guiseppe Franco salon in Beverly Hills. Yeah, its all the job of a makeup and hair crew but lets face it, its the typical norm and I really feel like our black models are really being left behind. Let’s give recognition to our up and coming future black skinned models shall we?

They’re almost always tall with beautifully tanned skin, unique hair and they also have the amazing facial features that are to die for. We have to agree that our dark-skinned models are fierce, sexy, and they have a certain something about them that commands respect and admiration wherever they may be. Lets meet one of these beauties and you can come to your own conclusion, shall we…

We need more dark skinned models on the runway and on covers of magazines…hey, why not? They’re beautiful!

Meet the model: Poppy Okotcha – she’s one of model managements newest faces and she’s 19 years old from Marlborough, England. Her favorite designer is Alexander McQueen but she’s also fond of Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs. Her future dream is to own her own eco-freindly fashion label. She also wants to change how little Afro hair products there are currently on the market. She would also love to someday portray Grace Jones because to her Grace is a powerful woman. I agree, Poppy – for sure she really is powerful and sexy! Here’s a few more pictures of this dark skinned beauty below…
