Hey boys and girls, it’s Rachel here from Q Models reporting here from Poland. I know most of you probably associate Poland with Greenpoint (if you live in Brooklyn anyway) and Pierogis. But I am actually here to scout for some fresh new faces for our men and women’s boards. Yep that’s right Poland has some serious hotties. In fact Q’s own Izabella Miko (of Coyote Ugly fame, pictured above) is from Poland.
Nonetheless, at first I was a little worried at first when I boarded the plane for Warsaw. In my Anna Sui minidress, thigh black suede high boots, and Tano handbag, I was the most glamorous traveler on the plane. If I were flying to Paris, that same outfit would have probably rendered me so last season.
But after conducting a little reconnaissance on the web, I realized I have nothing to fear. Between Warsaw, Poznan, and Krakow, I’m visiting nineteen agencies in five days. Some of the agencies’ models have gone on to shoot Gucci, Issey Miyake, French Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Numero Homme, and Dazed and Confused to name a few. Hot!
So after I shoot the breeze with the local agents, I’ll start meeting their models one at a time. I’m looking for the models to be tall, in shape, and photogenic (duh). People often asked what an agent is looking for but it’s really hard to say. But that’s kind of like asking what chocolate tastes like. Hard to describe. However I will say personality is really important. No one wants to hang out with Debbie Downer (or Donny Downer for that matter) for eight hours on a set. Boring!
Anyway I forgot my round hair brush, so I’m off to look for a brush (you don’t want to see my hair curly with bangs) and do a little boutique hopping while I’m at it.
Stay tuned to see all the gorgeous guys and girls I’m going to find!
