Thursday model crush: Naoise Tan

I hope you’ve realised that, at this stage, there are no regular features on Fash Mob. I try, I do try, but regular features are to me what list-making is to most normal people: work. So let’s not kid ourselves into thinking that this “Thursday model crush” is going to last longer than this one, single Thursday. BUT ANYWAY! Let’s not let that keep us from the important business of getting on with this business of blogging.

I follow 1st Option model agency on Facebook. I’m not quite sure why; it just happened, and now, on a nearly daily basis, I am reminded of my aesthetic inadequacy by their reams and reams of photograph albums. “New models!” they chirp. “Models off-duty!” they holler. Oh, my aching head. (As an aside, I also follow Image magazine, who recently put up their “2010 debs” albums, which all have one thing in common: they’re all from very, uh, affluent schools, and every single woman in the photographs looks at least 40. Sorry but that’s the truth.)

The point, though, is this: this week in 1st Option’s regular photo updates, I spied Naoise Tan, who I suspect is a relatively new model to their books (but having neither the time nor the inclination to double check this, I can’t be sure). Not only do I love her surname, which reminds me of Firefly (surely the best sci-fi programme ever made), but I love her slightly oriental look, and her versatility . . . but enough about me, what about her?

(Tyra would say this is textbook model, but I do love the innocence of the shot . . . )

As part of Oxfam’s We Are Tee campaign.

I know this is blurry but look how different Naoise looks! Love the hair. LOVE.

And finally, autumnal, photographed by the lovely Lili Forberg.

If you are a make-up artist, photographer or stylist who worked on any of these shots (poached from 1st Option’s Facebook page) and would like to be credited, leave a comment or drop me a line rmaccabe@irishtimes.com.
