I am starting this thread on catalog and commercial models. I know that catalog modeling is not the sexiest type of modeling, but of course anyone in the know knows that commercial and catalog modeling pays quite well and better than many high fashion gigs. I see this thread covering models whose primary bread and butter is catalog modeling as well as catalog work being done by (high) fashion models. I think the lines are starting to blur when it comes to categorizing models... just in the past couple of days, it has come to my attention that two haute couture darlings have done interesting commercial / catalog projects: Lily Donaldson for Victoria's Secret (surprising but not shocking) and Vlada Roslyakova for Target (shocking!!!). Victoria's Secret Lily Donaldson | IMG (London, New York, Paris and Milan) Sources: victoriassecret.com via Juliax / tanii94 - Lily Donaldson thread. Anna Sui for Target Vlada Roslyakova (top right) | Women (New York, Paris and Milan) | Models 1 (London ) | UNIQUE DENMARK (Copenhagen) | Donna (Tokyo) Sources: Campaignista / Faith Akiyama - Vlada Roslyakova thread. The Lily pictures are blah to me (they don't excel on any of the key factors: sexy, relateable or edgy - I see sexy and edgy, but too watered down), VS could have kept their money on that one. Surprisingly uber-high fashion Vlada has a cuteness about herself - that is when she is healthy looking - that she pulls off the relateability / "I want to buy that outfit" factor quite well.
