Chloe Norgaard for i-D Magazine by StevieMada

It’s always nice seeing photographers you’ve worked with from the beginning “testing” days on the pages or websites of the best magazines on the planet.  It makes you feel like you played a part in the success of artists around you, and in this case, it’s the dynamic duo Steve Mada who last year made a colorful collection of shots featuring our resident rainbow child, Chloe.  Here’s to LA’s perpetual summer blues…and a long lost editorial rediscovered.

The Quirky Girl – Love from NY Times…

We pride ourselves on recognizing, appreciating, and utilizing the quirky things that make our models stand out in a market where the simply “pretty” girls get lost in the shuffle.  In this recent NY TIMES article, “For Fashion Models, Quirk is In” the quirky girl is the one to beat by current industry standards according to some pretty legit players: top designers, scouts, casting directors, and the like.

The quirky girl is kind of our bag, and to see that 3 of our girls are mentioned in this article just sort of puts some proverbial hot pink icing on our cake.  To Chloe Norgaard, Avery Tharp, and Kelly Mittendorf…you GO girls.  We love you for doing you…It’s clearly working like CRAZY in your favor.  -M-



Because….THEY’RE PEOPLE TOO.  =)

Chloe visits Terry Richardson at his studio in New York City

Even though Chloe’s off doing big things in NYC,  she is and will always be a Photogenics Girl through and through.  So much so, that I’ve asked her to be one of the very first guest bloggers to join our Photogenics Contributors Page set to launch early September alongside guest bloggers Charlotte Carey and Natalie Suarez of style blog, Natalie Off Duty.

Stay tuned for “The DGAF Diaries by Chloe Norgaard,” and GET EXCITED!

Photogenics Blog is about to turn into a rowdy party. 😉
