Friday Sundries: Chico, Ultramegalore, Project Runway by Damien Neva

Haven’t done this in months, but there are some notable ends and odds that warrant mention and just might spirit you into the weekend. — Ford Models Blog Editor

+ Francisco Lachowski the other week returned to New York after having spent a few months working in Japan. The 6’2″ (188 cm) Brazilian worked a lot during his time in Japan and editorials from Huge and Pen have already surfaced. The Ford Models Blog had an opportunity to interview Chico the other week and promises his legion of fans not least amongst them at tFS to post it next week on this page. We talked about Francisco’s time in Japan, his curious Polish surname, his take on his many admirers, and more.

+ Hannelore Knuts visited the Ford Models Blog Wednesday afternoon after having co-hosted the Museum of Art and Design’s Metal Ball the other week. On the night she wore a Christian Joy Metal Rulez Jacket designed especially for Hannelore as well as underneath a short-cropped jacket by Azzedine Alaïa. For her visit with us she was wearing the Azzedine Alaïa jacket, which we were able to closely admire its Rorschach print pattern. Gorgeous! The jacket too.

+ Project Runway concluded last night somewhat unexpectedly crowning Gretchen Jones Season 8 winner. Of course it’s not for the Ford Models Blog to say one way or another whose a worthy winner, but if ever this page gets an invitation to judge we’ll let you know. What can be said, however is that Project Runway after eight seasons is still some of the most engaging fashion television programming today. Our colleague Doreen Small agrees having attended the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week S/S 11 Project Runway presentation at Lincoln Center and witnessed firsthand its immensity of scale not to mention industry tie ins with the likes of cosmetics giant L’Oreal Paris. Whatever Season 9 holds, we’ll be watching and along the way powdering our collective nose in the L’Oreal Paris Makeup Room.

Love the cap on Lachowski. He has the most beautiful face. He was a face that says “I want you”.
