Vali Myers: Prada's Inspiration

Ever feel like you're coming undone? Hair a mess? Clothes falling off you?
Party so hard you rarely see daylight?
 Letting vices get the better off you?
Go out looking like you've had a hard night already?

If your answer is yes then Vali Myers would have known how you felt. The 50s Paris party girl is a big inspiration behind Prada, Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton's Fall campaigns.
Vali Myers made looking dishevelled chic and surprisingly classy. The short black hair, the Kohl eyeliner, pale make-up and don't care attitude can be seen in the Marc Jacobs shots below.

Bohemian with a capital B.
At Louis Vuitton, Cara Delevingne and Ondria Hardin portrayed the same characteristics.

It particularly suits Lily McMenamy.
Dakota Fanning shined in the look for Harper's Bazaar.
Vali's nicknames included  Le Chat/The Cat
La Morte Vive/The Living Dead

La Bete/The Mouth
"I'm contemplating thinking about thinking".
There's a classy article in W Magazine by Edward Helmore you can check out for more details on Vali.

Prepare For Prada!
I'm obsessed with this collection. Miuccia Prada started off the homage to Vali with her Miu Miu s/s collection and then nailed it with her Prada Fall show.

Ondria Hardin

That Karl Lagerfeld is an obsessive man isn't he? That guy has more muses than a flock of Impressionist painters. Ondria Hardin at only 16 has already made her mark on Planet Fashion. Karl shot Ondria earlier this year in a great campaign for Maison Michel.

Lindsey Wixson looked fantastic too.

Ondria has been starring for Chanel on the catwalk and in campaigns ever since.
That coat is the business.

Chanel Resort gets better with every look.

Karl has also used her stunningly for Fendi.

Ondria was discovered aged 13 in North Carolina.
For i-D magazine.
For Zara

She seems perfect for make-up promotion.
Interesting that Valentino have gone back to longer hems. Knee length is more fun guys.

Can she rival Cara when she hits 21?

Dalianah Arekion For V Magazine

Dalianah Arekion has the kind of looks that stops people in their tracks. She's in the new V Magazine with a shoot that sees her styled as Carine Roitfeld when she broke into modelling aged 16.
She pulls it off wonderfully below don't you agree?
From Santander, Spain and aged 17 so far it's Givenchy who are her biggest fans.
Her other fave designers are Dolce & Gabbana and Calvin Klein.
She prefers books to TV which must mean she's read Shadow Of The Wind set in Barcelona, one of my favourite books. This pose below is Carine's trademark leg cross.
Fantastic vintage shorts.
Ditch your handbag for a fun lunch box.

Looking marvellous in Mexico for Teen Vogue.
Expert shoplifter distracting you with those eyes.

Riccardo Tisci is right to see her as perfect for his edgy Givenchy style.

Amanda Seyfried joins her in the latest ads.
Givenchy Resort 2014 sees a softer more feminine showcase.

Billy Kidd shots
Only a matter of time before Chanel uses her really.
Lianne La Havas would go crazy for this shirt.

Cinema Against Aids Gala
Me gusta Custo.
She has a stroke that can quickly turn into a choke if necessary. Be good pussycat!

She's just as cool off duty.
