That’s what the vast majority of girls who try themselves at modeling hopes to live one day. Those who keep faith alive and don’t get in trouble with their lucky star might have a little chance to experience this unparalleled feeling once or twice in a career: dreaming awake. Actually, I’m not sure if you really live that moment. You rather become aware of what happened at the moment you see the result, when you can touch and smell the glossy paper and suddenly realise it is you, the graceful creature in the middle of the shiny page. I must also confess I’m not living in a model’s mind and can only imagine the emotions running through these young women’s heads. Even doing this, I’m not hundred percent certain they can really feel what we, delighted viewers, see and if they aren’t hit by the same syndrome as a painter obliged to review his work or a writer forced to read his own book. This being stated, modeling perhaps owns a dimension sculpture and literature ignore, something only actors know about — that’s a reason why I often think of contemporary models as a new breed of silent actresses, especially now that fashion videos are becoming a part of our daily life. Unlike most other artists, models have to live with the characters they embody every minute of their career, from casting days to catwalk duties to the fabulous moment they cross the sight of their own face gracing the most coveted cover while windowshopping near the bookstore around the corner. I often think of -and felt fascinated by- this strange, uncanny process, this idea of beautiful people who began their professional lives with what others may consider as a photographic phantasy and work at a dream-factory instead of dragging themselves to the office every morning. I know this job is not a bed of roses or a pleasure cruise all the time but still… the appeal and attraction associated to models aren’t just a myth. Or if it is, this fashion-filled lifestyle includes a part of truth, as any other kind of mythology. Solange Wilvert certainly had experienced such moments in her accomplished career, had many highlights to remember and this elegant editorial from Remix Magazine’s Spring Summer 2012 issue pictures it at the highest level. All the otherwordly grace is here, captured by Annelise Philips (styled by Emily Barnes with make-up by John McKay). All the subtle ingredients that contribute to turn fashion into a different, dreamlike reality (yet a reality nonetheless) are so smartly sublimated throughout this story that you have no other option left than tasting the extraordinary essence of it as a whole.
