What a pleasure it was to run into FORD Supermodel of the World winner Hyoni Kang (In Lacoste campaign alongside Tanya Dziahileva shot by Terry Richardson) and Alexina Graham (Burberry campaign alongside Lily Donaldson shot by Mario Testino).   We had a rip roaring good time walking from Soho to the West Village as you can see from the photos.  Just to let you know, Hyoni is pronounced with two syllables (hyo-knee), not with three syllables (hee-yo-knee).

I thought I'd throw in the last scan just for fun as I personally believe there is a grain of truth to handwriting analysis. While it's not substitute for old fashioned due diligence when it comes to employment hiring practices and other important matters, handwriting analysis does serve a purpose in it's proper time and place. This happens to be the proper time and place--just having a GOOD time.

Notice how Hyoni underlines her signature and then ornaments it with a star? It makes sense considering how she's so well dressed doesn't it (dress and sandals)? And notice the sharp points in Alexina's "h" and "m" in her last name? That's anayltical....think.think.think.

    Its not fair its not fair!

    Brilliant photos these may be but........

    Me think if two heterosexual male models went about posing skin-2-skin, cheek by jowl, hugging,blowing air kisses and patting each other on the back in this fashion, I think they´d be deemed a love that dares show in public!

    Its all very well for you gals to ´broke back´in public, but us blokes, we have a raw deal indeed!!

    Hahahahahaha......Before you get all verbally medieval on me its just a random though, nothing but a random thought!

  17. Devan says:

    The girls are cute and all, but are you only taking photos of models now? What happened to the photos of everyday, fabulous New Yorkers? The fact that someone is a model doesn't automatically qualify them as extraordinarily stylish...what gives?

  18. Ediot says:

    Devan above has hit the proverbial nail square on the head!

    Whats this new found obsession with the cat walk anyhows?! Whatever happened to what ´you do´ best, taking extraordinarily brilliant photos of everyday Americana sartorial elan?

    Gorgeous your photos are but it seems you´ve somehow managed to be lured over to the dark side?

    A polite explaination should suffice me think?!
