Top fashion models on Curacao – who had have thought? Curacao is a small dot on the world map and most of the world has no idea of its existence. But, this little colonial island in the sea with the Dutch down to earth mentality has a few celebrity footprints without most people even knowing it. Fashion productions with celebrities are always kept in a veil of secrecy. After all, you don’t want to let the competition know where you are shooting and who is going to be the face of your new campaign. Therefore we are not to spill any fashion-model beans, but once released we can! So let’s see who walked through the Curacao-airport gates without a soul (besides us) knowing!
We’ve been in the business for quite some time. But when we heard that we got to work with one of the most important fashion icons of all time – our hearts skipped a beat. In the 1990s, Christensen was one of the most popular ‘supermodels’ of her time. Gracing covers on magazines like Vogue, Tattler, Harpers Bazaar and ELLE. While similarly appearing in designer campaigns such as Versace, Prada, Dolce & Gabanna and Karl Lagerfeld to name a few. Many also know her from starring in the video ‘Wicked Games’ from singer Chris Isaac. That was later featured on MTV’s ‘Sexiest Video of All Time’. Duh!!

We’ve had the pleasure of working not once, but twice with this lovely lady. Not only is Ashley Graham the hottest in town, but also a very cool person to have on set. Laid back, relaxed and always in for some fun & giggles. Yeah, we think she’s awesome! And, awesomeness is what landed her the cover on the Sports Illustrated Swim Edition cover as the first plus-size model – EVER! Setting an example for the industry and size acceptance in the mainstream. You go, girl!
One of the 2014 Victoria Secrets Angels and winner of the 2016 Model of The Year Competition, which she won from other top models Bella Hadid and Lucky Blue Smith. Imaan Hammam is a force to be reckoned with. She has appeared in advertising campaigns such as Chanel, Revlon, DKNY, Shiseido and Givenchy. And has walked runway shows for designers like Givenchy, Carolina Herrera, Balenciaga, Vera Wang, and the list goes on. Besides the fact that she has a great personality, she is born in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and that makes us extra proud, cause that’s where the cool kids come from (us!).
Talking about cool kids. Here is another one for you! Erin Wasson, hello! This Texan Goddess completely swept us away with her sparkling personality. We all know modeling is not an easy job and for this shoot in Curacao, there were some demands, but she had some tricks up her sleeve like it was nothing! For those who are not familiar with this stunner, she has walked the runway for almost every great designer there is, was on the covers of numerous fashion magazines like ELLE, Esquire, Vogue, and Allure. And Wasson has been the international face of Maybelline, Clinique and Max Factor.
Anne’s career took off when she was discovered at age 15 by IMG Model scouts in St. Petersburg. They were looking for new faces for the MTV show Fashionably Loud From Europe. She won the contest and moved to New York. She made her debut in Sports Illustrated Swim in 2005 and has appeared in it every year since. Anne Vyalitsyna (aka Anne V. ) came to Curacao to shoot a part of the summer collection for the big American warehouse Macy’s.
