Want Something and LET YOURSELF HAVE IT!

What movie is my title from?

Don’t be mad! It’s been awhile, I know. But, in my defense, I have been SUPER busy. This summer I had an internship with Teen Vogue, which was insane and awesome! I can’t post too many details, but if you are interested just chat with me! All the people I worked with and for are amazing people and so grateful for getting to know them and look forward to see what those talented people do in the future.

At the end of the summer, I was able to assist stylist Laura Pritchard, who styled the Teen Vogue Fashion Haute Spot for Fashion Week! That was another amazing experience and I learned so much and it helps that she too is an awesome person and incredibly hard working and creative. I would post pictures but not sure I can just yet!

Now that NY Fashion Week is complete I decided to share my top 5 collections with you (a little late)! I appreciate your feedback and would love to hear your favorite looks, moments and collections! Also, special shout out to my friend Elmar!

As always- Comments get shout outs on the next post, which will come in a week or two! I am already planning on London, Milan and Paris Fashion Week coverage as well as share my current obsession!

Below is the S/S 2012 Alexander Wang Show…. Props to Kelly for interning there this summer!

Feelin’ It

Hey! Thanks for checking out my blog! I hope that you decided to support and follow my journey onto becoming successful in modeling. My blog focuses on the male modeling industry, fashion and my life in getting made. I hope that my blog will serve as a guide to getting started in the industry, diet and exercise and behind the scenes of the industry itself. Feel free to leave comments and feedback and help spread the word to your friends! Thanks again and enjoy!

Thanks to everyone who posted comments on the last entry! To answer some questions you guys asked:

Teddy- I did it at my gym in Florida they have this device that does it. You can buy online, or at a GNC a fat measurer. There are two kinds: one that pinches your fat (more accurate *Thanks RaeAnne* but lowers your self esteem- I don’t like it) or the one that is electronic (much better because it doesnt make you want to kill yourself as much by pinching you). Also, Fitrec will do it for 20 bucks.

Lindsey- YES! The winner of Launch My Line on Bravo will have their line launched on Ruelala (which is the website I shoot for)!

Amanda- I am going to hopefully be working with an agency in New York this summer! Crossing my fingers!

Brian, Erica, Jenn, RaeAnne and Kara- You guys didn’t really ask anything, but thanks for commenting!

Fashion and Entertainment

I decided to incorporate a weekly entertainment update in my blog. I also decided to go to the best person for the job!

**Jordan Diaz is a Broadcast Journalism major at Boston University with a passion for everything Hollywood! Diaz is from Tampa, Florida and loves watching television, working out, the beach, sports and his family. His addiction to television and gossip tabloids started when he was in middle school and is proud to say he’s now a full-blown addict. Jordan’s life-long dream is to become an on-camera personality for E!, covering everything from red carpets to movie premieres to chatting with his future wife Megan Fox. After Diaz’s freshman year, he interned for the CW in his hometown as a production and promotions assistant. Now, he’s interning for Boston’s top two radio stations: KISS 108 and JAMN 94.5. He will be making a move to New York City this coming summer for a potential internship with MTV and has faith in his self to succeed at whatever he does! Jordan is optimistic, never frowning and always making moves, so hope you tune in weekly to catch the latest ‘Entertainment Exclusive with Jordan Diaz!’

Couture shows are done. Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel showed a look into the future with his line, full of color, and very shiny. My point though for bringing this up, Baptiste escorted the final look, the wedding dress, down the runway. Luck dude… he is Lagerfeld’s “partner,” I am completely willing to be one of the greatest name’s of fashion muse… So Baptiste, WHENEVER you are over it, I will take over for you… NBD (no big deal).

Man fur… not the gross kind, but the cool, yet bad for animal rights, kind of fur is going to be very “in” this fall. Yes, I know it is very far in advance but the fall shows are underway, and this I knowledge that can save money and make you look cooler. Below, I put 4 looks from Dolce and Gabbana’s Milan Fall 2010 show. Do you like? I do!

As promised, below is the planner picture taken last Sunday at Abercrombie and Fitch at Faneuil Hall, in Boston. What do you all think of it?

The Happenings

I don’t know if I mentioned it but I am trying to do detox programs more often. It is good to cleanse your body and help normal body functions. I started a new one on Monday. It is the GNC 7 day program. Hopefully, if I stick to the eating regiment, you will see a lot of just fruit and veggies in my diet. However, it is hard to get enough calories in day just eating those things, so I have to eat a lot of them and through some more substantial foods in the mix.

I am going to Manhattan today and tomorrow I am going to see what I hope will be my apartment for the summer! Still crossing my fingers! Also, tonight is Pedro’s birthday party and I am excited because I have the best costume. Ooo I also found a cheap hotel room at Hotel Pennsylvania, so I am staying there this trip! I can’t wait to have a room and nice bed to myself for a few days!

I am trying to get more photos to update my book. I was on Model Mayhem , a website for models, photographers, make-up artists, etc, and came across a ton of castings. I sent my pictures to a designer, Michael Anthony, pictures are above, looking to shoot “lookbook”. A lookbook consists of photos of a designer’s collection. Anyways, I was chosen to shoot lookbook for the designer. Here comes the problem. The shoot had a call time of 9 am this morning. I could not miss one of the classes I have that day, as we have a paper due soon. I had to tell them that I couldn’t do it. It is nice to know that I have some interest though… But I did have a test shoot with Michael Thomas ( www.mthomasphoto.net) and the pictures are above. I hope you like!

As many of you may know, I AM OBSESSED WITH DJ TIESTO, saw him last year in NYC and best night ever… I just discovered this song and I am definitely feelin’ it!
