Fashion Over Reason: Alana!

Thursday, June 25, 2009


I fell for Alana Zimmer when i first saw her on the runways a few years back and she was one of the models i was excited to see walking every show. When i'd see her in editorials i'd be ecstatic. There was something so magnetic about her look; her allure was a little different than the others. I was immediately drawn to the way she emits something so natural, while exuding a sensibility that was both edgy and classic ... and she's instantly recognizable, although completely transformable in pictures. This was, i believe, in 2007. I wasn't the only one who took notice: she was named one of's top ten faces to watch in Spring 2007. She was scoring ad campaigns with Moschino, JPG and DKNY, as well as being an important up and rising magazine presence. But then she sort of fell off the radar - though not completely. She failed to appear in any major commercial work in the past few seasons and her editorial presences have seemingly been cut back. And this coming from a true magazine junkie - i don't see her as often as i'd like! Though she surfaces once in while (and she's still an important catwalk model), she, according to yours truly, does not get the exposure nor the credit she deserves.
