Tati modelling Marc Jacobs AW10
Tati modelling for Rodarte SS10
Tati's first shoot
One of the fun things about doing shows, is spotting new modelling talent. It has been the same faces on the runway for a few years now, so the Marc Jacobs show last night was a pleasure as his casting agent worked with a rich new seam of new modelling talent. Tati, (above) is a teenager from Buenos Aries who gave up studying cinema to model. She has been working just a year, and yesterday opened the Marc Jacobs show, which signifies she is seen as a rising star. Tati also stars in the new Vivienne Westwood campaign photographed by Juergen Teller, but he doesn't capture her beauty at all. She is my new favourite brunette (sorry Freja). Better still Marc decided that size two teenagers were not the only choice for his runway, and he did a bit of studio casting, picking two of his creative stylists, Camille Bidault Washington, (below) and Suzanne Deeken, (bottom). Maybe next season Marc could do a spot of "street casting" at the Fashion Editor at Large office?
