Street Peeper Phil Oh New York, with regular stints in Copenhagen, Paris, Tokyo, and the like. Style blogger Susie Bubble; casting director Natalie Joos; fashion editors Mary Kate Steinmiller and Kate Lanphear. Designer labels. Oh annotates his subjects’ outfits piece by piece, brand by brand. The bigger the name, the better.
Mr. Newton Eddie Newton “Resident of New York, citizen of the world.” Well-dressed pedestrians, especially teens. (With cameos from Daphne Guinness and Tavi Gevinson.) Egalitarian fashion. “They never wear one designer head to toe, and they are never over the top kooky.”
Face HunterYvan Rodic London, or wherever his round-the-world web-TV show takes him. Fashion heavy hitters: British Vogue’s Yasmin Sewell; model-designer Erin Wasson; bloggers C.C. Sheffield and Caroline Blomst. Posed portraits; beautiful scenery.
All the Pretty Birds Tamu McPherson Milan mostly, with occasional forays to Paris and New York. Girls in frills: Caroline Issa, Vika Gazinskaya, Miroslava Dumas, Natalia Alaverdian, Frida Gustavsson, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Hanneli Mustaparta. Anything overtly feminine—ruffles, florals, long skirts— as long as it’s paired with a hat.
Hanneli Hanneli Mustaparta New York, Copenhagen, Stockholm, etc. Herself. The former model’s own razor cheekbones and straight off the runway clothing.
glamcanyon Katja Hentschel Berlin primarily. German club kids and otherwise dressed to the nines partygoers; “this guy called Posh Prince who’s a dancer for Lady Gaga.” “Sequins in broad daylight.”
Altamira: Craig Arend Wherever the models are. A rotating cast of models-of-the-moment such as Frida Gustavsson. “I could recognize her potential way back in her rookie season of September 2009, before she was famous.” Off-duty models wearing clothes that would make mere humans look homeless.
Jak & Jil Blog Tommy Ton New York … and wherever else French Vogue, GQ, and will send him. The international editrix brigade: Anna Dello Russo, Taylor Tomasi Hill, Carine Roitfeld, Giovanna Battaglia; plus big-deal models like Dree Hemingway. Accessories, particularly shoes. Ton can identify an editor just by looking at her feet. (Studded Balenciaga sandals? Kate Lanphear, of course.)
