Model Diary: Lyle Lodwick Is an Artiste


Really. Dude has chops. In his first video diary from New York Fashion Week, the male model-slash-budding-filmmaker shot ethereal non sequiturs of abandoned streets, flashing lights, and himself smoking … something. His avant-garde interpretation of the assignment, which was simply to document his Fashion Week experience on a loaned digicam, fulfills its full-blown filmic potential in the second installment. There's a quiet ambience to his backstage footage from the Marc by Marc Jacobs show (where Lyle caught Marc himself watching the runway show on twin TVs), plus a great sequence involving a backward ride on a clubbily lit escalator. Next step, Hollywood?
