Model Moment: Fashion takes double

Fashion is in a constant search for fresh faces. This time they are on the prowl for the twin factor. Identical twins, especially, look so strong together they have a certain mysterious factor in their eyes and expression. Elite’s model twins Elena and Manuela Lazic have proven this right in their editorials together. Both of them were discovered after winning 3rd place at the Elite model Look France together last year.

Another pair to watch is Gwen and Donna Loos at WW Models. They may not be exactly identical, thus explaining their different portfolios so far. Gwen already walked for Nina Ricci and Chanel, appearing in a lacoste editorial and the Philosophy Resort 2010 lookbook. However both of them are equally cute and fresh-faced, looking a little like hybrids of Caroline Trentini and Sophie Srej.

What I wonder about is that while twin models are really interesting, what are their selling points that will make their career take flight? Or what factor determines the success of one, or the fall of the other? No one knows, for sure, perhaps it is as unpredictable as what’s in and what’s out.

  1. you've got a nice blog. And offcourse it's great to read something about Dutch models, I am from Holland too. xxxxx

  2. Gwen and Donna Loos are gorgeous. I had never seen them before this post. They have a very bohemian/hippie vibe about them. Great feature! :)

  3. Wow, I didn't realise that the "twin factor" was the new it-thing! That's quite interesting, although strange that they both model.. the Loos sisters are so lovely!
    Great blog! xx

  4. the twins are so cute! i've never seen them before this post and i can already tell they're ones to watch for models on the rise. i bet they're going to be big.
    i wonder why twin models are in such demand now?

  5. Twins are more striking on the runway with two at the time.

    I am thinking of the twins from ANTM.. they were pretty fab

  8. Well, fashion without a leather seems hollow in ladies dressing. Nowadays ladies leather jackets are getting more interests.

  9. I adore the dress in Gwen Loos at Nina Ricci ! Very flattering on her skintone.

    Great fashion style !

  10. Great design.Chanel may be known for its timeless designs, but with the introduction of the Chanel 2.55 Chanel brings us a line that is both seductive and a slight change of pace. Unmistakably different, Chanel classic strays from the quilted Chanel Evening Bags we have come to expect from the brand. For those of you who were disappointed that Chanel’s Fall 2011 runway show only featured a couple of handbag styles, fret not. We have a few more Chanel handbagsto show you, courtesy of the fine folks at, plus a closer look at the Chanel Shopping Bags that were featured on several models during the presentation.

  11. Thanks for this. I think I am in loved with your photos :)

  12. Really great style, something we don't see too often on the streets

  13. Interesting post and thanks for sharing. Some things in here I have not thought about before.Thanks for making such a cool post which is really very well written.
