She’s Back: Former Top Model Snejana Onopka Returns to the Runway

After several seasons' absence, Snejana Onopka finally returned to the runway yesterday, to walk in Anthony Vaccarello's Spring 2014 Paris show.

In the forums, the response was split between those who, upon seeing Snejana's famous strut revived, achieved a state of inner tranquility ("So…I can die in peace now") and others who had a more euphoric experience ("Aaaah i seriously screamed when I saw her in the pictures !! couldn't be more happy, just hope this is not the only one she does"). When rumors of a potential Onopka runway appearance first emerged a couple days ago, one member speculated that tFS would crash (it didn't). 

Launching her career in 2005 as a Steven Meisel muse (the legendary photographer shot her for Dolce & Gabbana and Prada fall ad campaigns), Snejana first made her runway debut by closing the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2006 show in New York. From then on, the Ukrainian model was one of fashion's principles, appearing on many prestigious fashion magazine covers (such as Paris and Japanese Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, i-D, Numero) and fronting high-end campaigns (Lanvin, Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Pierre Balmain) right up until November 2011, when she got married (to a wealthy Ukranian businessman) and dropped off the map. Her periodic appearances (well-documented in the Forums) and television interviews (primarily Ukranian outlets) suggested that she was enjoying a quieter life with her husband, their dog and massive diamonds. (Onopka did briefly reemerge on the scene last year, when she appeared in Tom Ford's Fall 2012 beauty campaign.)

Her runway walk yesterday at Paris Fashion Week wasn't entirely unanticipated: Women Management included Onopka on a list of models available by special request. (Onopka was also featured in the agency's Milan Spring 2013 package, but never finally cast for a show.)

We reached out to Snejana's agency for comment and to find out whether we might see her at another Paris show, but haven't heard back.

As predicted by forum members prior to the start of the Spring 2014 season, Sasha Luss is strutting down the runway for every designer that matters. With New York, London and Milan being wrapped and her showlist having no flaws, the Russian beauty is sure to be on every Top Models of Spring 2014 list. Paris Fashion Week has only just started but Sasha has already closed the Cédric Charlier and Dries van Noten shows and was the first girl out at Gareth Pugh.

“Is it just me or is she perfect?” asked FASHIONOGRAPHY.  

“This girl is absolutely flawless,” agreed Nepenthes.  

And monikaposh wrote, “My new "model crush"!! She's killing all the shows for me, such a good look on her with the blond hair!!! Love!”

Sasha may have been around for years, but with the new platinum hair this angelic stunner is finally on everyone’s radar and her star is rising fast! We cannot wait to see what else Paris has in store for her but there is no doubt we will be seeing much more of Sasha.

Kate Moss Auction at Christie’s



Kate Moss is an international style icon that continues to inspire generation upon generation of fashion lovers. So, it comes as no surprise that the art world is paying homage to one of our favourite British models with an exclusive auction held today at the legendary Christie's Auction House in London.

The sale is set to feature an array of paintings and photographs all featuring the beautiful Miss Moss and created by a mix of leading names including Sir Peter Blake, Nick Knight and, of course, no fashion photography sale would be complete without the addition of a Mario Testino chucked into the mix.

Those who are lucky enough to make the highest bid will walk away with some very culturally iconic imagery, from Nick Knight’s Moss complete with a David Bowie lightning bolt across her face, to her patriotic Union Jack decorated jacket Vogue cover shot by Mario Testino for the October issue in 2008. The collection has been curated by art collector Gert Elfering, and apparently, it’s also taking place with Kate’s blessing, so you just know that there’s a fine selection of artwork up for grabs.

Canada Goose x Levi’s Limited Edition Collection

Designer collaborations are everywhere at the moment, but as we all know, two brains are usually better than one. Still, while fashionable parings are popping up in almost every department store, I’m pretty psyched to hear about the new union between Canada Goose and Levis.

Canada Goose x Levis

With decreasing temperatures comes the need for new winter attire and joining forces for a limited-edition Fall 2013 capsule collection, three of Canada Goose’s classic jackets – the Banff Parka, Chilliwack Bomber and Reversible Free Style Vest – have been given the Levi’s treatment with accents of deep indigo denim. 

The garments come in rich tans and bright reds, while also adorned with Canada Goose’s patch and Levi’s classic red tab. The only drawback? The collection is part of a run of only 300 pieces, all of which will hit select retailers (namely Levi's stores, and Canada Goose retailers) on October 1.

Needless to say, the exclusivity of the Canada Goose x Levi's outerwear could help it stand out amongst the thousands of other coats worn by Torontonions as soon as the weather turns chill (heck, I’ve already spotted dozens of them in this last week of September alone!). The limitation on production is a great way to increase demand for people looking for a one-of-kind winter warmer, plus the marriage between two classic American and Canadian brands is sure to have both sides of the border bum-rushing stores come D-day. Will you be one of them?
