Tisci's Swan

Thursday, January 7, 2010





Ranya Mordanova, muse of Riccardo Tisci. Known for her swan-like neck. I never really knew what that meant until i saw a pic of her in profile. She stood out most because of her grace, innocence, and dainty frame - she's kinda boyish but not androgynous - if you know what i mean - softer round the edges??

She is noticeably smaller than the others, yet its amazing how frequently they use her on the runways. Maybe it's cause when she walks, she gives this other-worldly aura. Her presence at the end of the runway just captured us. We just wanted to see more!

(Yep, we have been watching ftv a bit too much lately.)

She is so stunning, I actually have a drafted post for her! She is just beautiful and completely agree, almost androgynous but the right side of femininity. thank you for commenting my blog, and I'm sorry it took so long to comment you back! www.dazedyoungmess.blogspot.com

I understand what you mean! I haven't been noticing her a lot but now after you mention this, she's definitely someone that I'll be looking out for! I'm hoping to see her editorial works, I think she'll be fantastic in them! (:

She stands out of all those long wavy great looking russian dolls on the runway right now.
I have to mention one thing though- the last pic of her talking to someone- I kinda have a hard time looking at...
