Michaela Kocianova He was in the shadow of Eniko Mihalik last year at the Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week and the newly completed Edition names like Carmen Kass or Nieves Alvarez returned him to gain ground and center stage on the catwalk. A penalty. The best model for L ’ L’Oreal was Sessilee Lopez.
One way or another, for me Michaela Kocianova remains the best of the Pasarela Cibeles. Its 1.78 meters in height, particular facial features and the manner with which parades make me to decant it. Impossible-to-remember name (thanks, Laia by refresh my memory!), was to see it and know that you have that special touch that a few have.
Kocianova was born on December 29, 1988, in Trencin, Slovakia, but currently lives in New York. Right now is on the payroll of the top agencies in the world, such as DNA in New York and Elite in Paris, Milan, Barcelona and Brazil. A model that has been successful with support from Dior but that he refuses the jump magazines and advertisements, in addition to the general public.
In 2004, aged 16, was second in the prize awarded by the Agency of models elite in Slovakia. And in two years he began to debut at the fashion weeks in New York and Paris; with Rodarte and Rochas, respectively.
Then went through the fashion week in Milan with Belstaff, Rocco Barocco, Enrico Coveri, Pollini…
By the week of the fashion of Paris spring-summer 2007 with Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Christian Dior, Vivienne Westwood, which would be later image, Lanvin, Kenzo Sakamoto…
And thus continued to grow until 2007, time which in his curriculum vitae appears as an angel of victory ’ s Secret. First and only year.
Prior to that Vivienne Westwood had already signed it as his signature image for the Spring-Summer 2007. As well as at the Monique Lhuillier 2007 spring/summer lookbook.
Over time it has been growing its presence in the major events of the fashion. In early 2007, it was a regular in Milan, New York and Paris, with more than 30 parades in total on their backs by Edition. For Dior and Galliano was a fixed, also for Chanel.
Climbing one step more in the middle of 2007 parading for Christian Dior high Couture autumn-winter 2007 / 2008.
As well as for Chanel, Giorgio Armani Privé and AVH.
As a curiosity, in 2008 paraded for the Spring-Summer 2009 collection of Alexander McQueen man, as well as other models.
That same year opened her first fashion show of For Christian Lacroix Couture. Later you would with Dior (pictured), Elie Saab.
Ready-to-wear would have to wait until 2009, with Christian Dior autumn-winter 2009 / 2010.
Already in campaigns it has counted for the own Christian Dior, Christian Lacroix with Juergen Teller behind the camera or Givenchy Cosmetics.
As we like jokes: Michaela Kocianova collaborated in the campaign Dior Homme fall-winter 2010 / 2011 with Jude Law and Guy Ritchie (former Madonna) directed, with whom it has been linked as a couple.
Regard to the magazines, Kocianova has not had so much recognition. She just starred in covers. The most important was to L’Officiel in September 2007.
The last prominent was for the Italian Edition of the magazine Velvet in November 2010.
Y Elle had it for its Czech and Danish Edition in October 2009 and January 2010, respectively. A penalty.
The last visual has done for Vogue Italy in video format with Greg Kadel.
Reminds me of face of a hybrid between a young Eva Herzigová and Karolina Kurkova.
Returns next year to Cibeles, please!
