"IS IT JUST ME OR IS THE WORLD FULL OF BEAUTIFUL WOMEN?"
(Robbie Coltrane)


SOFYA TITOVA @ next paris new faces division
FASHION CASTING
WE SHOT IN THE AFTERNOON SHE KEPT THE HAIR FROM A MORNING
SHOOT FOR HARPER’S

During a fashion casting you have to stand out at first glance. You are just one of many beauties - a true challenge for your ego, no matter how talented or famous you already are. 

But not just for the main role. One travels along a rocky road until they find the perfect face, picture, and mood for the imaginary story which is going to be told. Trough the following photo series our beloved stylist Ann-Kathrin Obermeyer and photoraph Adrian Crispin captured a (not-so-)random casting situation for our EGO ISSUE. Additionally he mentioned just a fraction of what is admirable in the women's nature. 

See the whole story after the jump.

1.) Lu cie Von Alten @ IMG Paris 22 years old - german - i saw her three weeks after this photo was taken at the ily paris fw 2012 fashion week cocktail reception. 2.) Camille Ninat @ MAJOR PARIS french 3.) MONICA COSAC @
VIVA PARIS her t-shirt says “all you need is me” — she came in with two other russian girls all wearing really strong perfume and putting on their high heels in the stairwell 4.) ANNA CANTEROT @ MARIL YN PARIS she recently moved from
the development division to advertising - i remember being impressed with a beach story from her book and thinking, is this really her? she was rather tiny but looked great in those pictures 5.) RENATA LADICS @ VIVA PARIS 20 years old -
hungarian - i thought her ears were really great 6.) Au d CA MILLE @ MAJOR PARIS 7.) ISAAC @ ELITE PARIS american from connecticut - i ran into her backstage at the thierry mugler fw 2012 fashion show. she was a ninja. - i want to do a
story with her and my daughter eugenie beacause they look similar they just come in different sizes. 8.) DAIANA DUMITR U @ ELITE PARIS 9.) ISAAC @ ELITE PARIS 10.) / 17.) MAN UELA OR ELENA LA ZIC “THE TWINS ” hard to tell. i guess
they are interchangeable @ elite — i ran into the twins backstage at the issey m show. one of them was wearing this really great tiger t shirt. They are really friendly and gave me the impression that they had a clean and simple upbringing.
