    Just the fashion facts

    Not to regurgitate the content of this month’s Vogue, but recent conversations surrounding fashion models seem to be quite common lately.

    Whether it’s the controversy over the required ultra-skinny physique or that Tyra Banks’ “”America’s Next Top Model”” rerun marathons seem to be common lazy Sunday afternoon outlets, I have models on the brain.

    And lucky for me, there is a fair amount of good-looking students floating around this campus who could be models themselves.

    The briefcase, a $3 purchase from Casa de los NiÇños, carried by media arts senior JorDan Fuller, is what initially caught my attention. However, on second look, Fuller is quite model-like.

    Fuller says it’s his new carrying mechanism that pushed him to dress in such a well-put-together manner.

    “”If I didn’t dress up, I’d look like an idiot,”” Fuller joked. “”So now I look like a pretentious asshole instead.””

    Although his height and wavy tresses imply model-like status, he’s got too much on his plate to occupy himself with what could be superficial nonsense.

    “”I’m too distracted with my work,”” Fuller said. “”I just don’t pay much attention to the media or pop culture.””

    A model who doesn’t even know it. Even better.

    Public administration junior Jeanne-Louise Camus’ exotic aesthetic is what made us think “”model.””

    Camus shows off her look by sporting the nautical trend with her cute sundress from Old Navy and her yellow beaded necklace, which comes from the islands of Hawaii.

    When asked if she has a favorite model, Camus smirked and shrugged her shoulders.

    “”Myself,”” she said.

    “”I follow the industry (fashion, that is) pretty closely,”” said studio art senior Casey Smith.

    Smith’s clothes validate his statement.

    His shoes for instance, gladiator sandals by Gucci, are an ultra chic find from Barney’s. And how about his Wayfarer shades by Marc Jacobs? Lindsay Lohan was spotted wearing a similar pair at the Coachella music festival last weekend.

    Although his high-fashion attire could easily be found on the runways in New York, the recent happenings surrounding the controversy with models and their issues with weight concerns Smith.

    “”I hope eventually the ideal woman will become the everyday woman,”” Smith said.

    She’s not exactly what one would call “”everyday”” but Smith’s favorite model, Gisele BǬndchen, is one of the more curvaceous of the bunch.

    “”She’s fabulous,”” he said.

    Communication sophomore Abby Pick’s olive skin tone and honey-blonde locks evoke all the aesthetics of the all-American girl, runway style.

    Her floral tunic, a Forever 21 find, makes the grade for both its cut and print, and also elongates her figure.

    Her leggings and movie-star shades keep the overall look casual chic, as if she’s between modeling auditions.
