姊妹聯手 闖蕩模特兒路
Model Sisters is Fashion’s New Favor


»»模特兒的世界光鮮亮麗,吸引時下許多年輕女孩嚮往,一窩蜂爭相湧入,但就算擁有美麗臉蛋及傲人身材,運氣不佳的模特兒還是大有人在。新模們又該如何踏上尖端,成為超模?俗語說「在家靠父母、出外靠朋友」,而兄弟姊妹更是親情、友情同時兼具的存在,在近來模特兒圈也不例外。有著英國超模Cara Delevingne頂著顯赫背景,透過姊姊Poppy居中牽線下,成功闖蕩模特兒圈的前例,許多超模的親人們也開始摩拳擦掌,希望藉由親戚光環,成為下一代超模。

提及近期最紅的模特兒姊妹,Cara與Poppy Delevingne可說是首屈一指。從小姊妹感情極深的Delevingne姊妹都有著深邃臉蛋及姣好身材,顯赫的家庭背景(英國精品百貨Selfridges採購總監Pamdora Stevens的女兒)幫兩人在模特兒事業上推了一把,成為兩人決定往模特兒界發展的契機。姊姊Poppy喜愛熱鬧與社交,自小便交到許多時尚界的朋友,自然地成為英國It Girl,並在21歲那年經由友人介紹,成為Storm模特兒經紀公司旗下模特兒。Poppy在時尚界靠著家庭,可說是一帆風順,不但入行不久後,成為Burberry等英國品牌的寵兒,更在今年成為Chanel形象大使,展現超強影響力。妹妹Cara比其姊還厲害,雖然一開始她懷抱著音樂夢,但在朋友慫恿及其姊的鼓勵下,Cara於2009年出道,並在兩年內迅速竄紅,不但取代其姊成為Burberry新一季代言人,更是時尚界最搶手、2013春夏時裝週曝光率最高的超模之一。

Cara的成功,Poppy可算是幕後一大功臣。除了幫妹妹在模特兒界打頭陣外,疼愛妹妹的Poppy積極介紹關係給妹妹,並給予100%的鼓勵與支持,讓Cara在短時間內走紅,更青出於藍,勝過當年的自己。「以我的年齡在模特兒這塊也沒有什麼好闖的了。」Poppy於近期出席時裝週時,對媒體發出進軍好萊塢的消息。「我一直很想走影視,所以趁妹妹現在事業也穩定,我決定去好萊塢闖一闖。」但令人諷刺的是,Poppy除了於2009年曾在短片「Perfect」演出與2012年年底在Matthew Williamson 創牌15週年微電影「XY」露臉外,並無其他電影邀約,反而是妹妹Cara捷足先登,在11月16日即將上映的「安娜。卡列尼娜」(Anna Karenina)中飾演女配角,與Keira Knightley和Jude Law大飆演技,風光進軍好萊塢。

有著Delevingne姊妹開路,許多模特兒經紀公司紛紛看上「模特兒姊妹」的賣點,努力挖掘超模親戚們成為旗下模特兒,希望能藉此再添一棵搖錢樹。婚後還是紅透半邊天的Kate Moss曾在自己去年的夢幻婚禮上,帶領15個小花童幸福步入禮堂,而其中一位花童特別吸引了眾多媒體注目,成為許多雜誌與部落客的討論焦點,那就是Kate Moss同父異母的妹妹Lottie Moss。全名Charlotte Lottie Moss,年僅13的她有著閃耀的金色秀髮、玫瑰般的粉嘴唇和清澈的淡藍雙眼,並被名經紀人Carol White(曾發掘Naomi Campbell)喻為:「典型的英國清秀派美人胚子。」搶走其姊婚禮焦點的Lottie,在報導出來不久後,就受到許多模特兒經紀公司積極邀約,但她最後選擇簽入與姊姊同家公司Storm,在2011年11月正式加入模特兒行列。除了有時尚雜誌為她大篇幅介紹,許多青少年雜誌和品牌更積極聯絡Lottie,希望藉由姊妹話題帶來商機。而Lottie近期積極配合專業訓練,與攝影師Andrea Carter-Bowman合作試鏡照,期望在不久將來,能與姊姊Kate Moss並駕齊驅。

近兩年的當紅炸子雞Rosie Huntington-Whiteley也有一位芳齡19、長相甜美的妹妹Florence Huntington-Whiteley。曾演出「變形金剛3」(Transformers: Dark of the Moon)的Victoria’s Secret天使超模Rosie,近期積極投入設計內衣,正努力為自己拓展事業版圖,不但走秀邀約照接不誤,更於今年6月宣布參與電影「Mad Max:Fury Road」,與Tom Hardy和Charlize Theron在大銀幕飆戲。其妹Florence也不甘示弱,不但在學校人氣紅不讓,更被年輕服飾品牌Jack Wills相中,成為年度「大學代言人」,拍攝品牌系列平面廣告。身穿粉色T恤與大紅短褲的Florence被現場工作人員讚賞舉手投足都有姊姊的影子,將來有望成為伸展台的明日之星。而在網路與學校都小有名氣的Florence,興奮地把拍攝過程經由Twitter與朋友分享,透過照片展現女大生青春魅力,並為Jack Wills大肆宣傳她最愛的破壞刷白牛仔短褲,讓品牌高層開心得合不攏嘴,直言將繼續與青春無敵的Florence合作。

除了依循姊姊的腳步踏入時尚界的模特兒妹妹們外,也有經紀公司看準這波姊妹潮,和許多未經雕刻的璞玉姊妹花簽約,如來自荷蘭的孿生新星Elza與Vera Luijendijk,就是以姊妹姿態在時尚圈互相扶持。感情良好的Luijendijk姊妹倆,入行經歷相似;姊姊Vera先被星探相中,加入了荷蘭From Amersfoort經紀公司,兩天後妹妹Elza也被星探相中,經紀公司得知是Vera的妹妹後,決定簽入旗下。雖然是孿生姊妹,但模特兒經歷卻大不同,妹妹Elza靠著活潑的個性與對模特兒事業的熱忱,在短短一年內不但已走過多場品牌時裝秀,更曾為Prada與Versace拍攝2012秋冬廣告,成為models.com備受矚目的Hotlist一員。而姊姊Vera卻因內向的個性,在模特兒界並不如妹妹人氣高昂,但憑著姊妹情深的力量,Vera也漸漸在時尚界中展頭露臉,更為2012年10月號<Hapar’s Bazaar>拍攝封面,與妹妹一同成為備受期待的明日之星。««

While both of them became Burberry’s spokesperson, Poppy is slowly fading away from the fashion industry because “I think Hollywood is attracting to me.” Saied Poppy, “Besides, Cara is stable with her career now, and I am reaching the age limit of modeling, so this will be the perfect path for my future.” Although wanting to have a success in Hollywood, Poppy has only acted in 2009 short film “Perfect” and in the recent 2012 Matthew Williamson’s “XY” short film. On the other hand, Cara has overshined her sister, again, with the upcoming movie “Anna Karenina”, that will lead her to a bright opening of Hollywood.

While the elder is busy designing her collection of lingerie and filming her new film, “Mad Max: Fury Road” with her fellow actor Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, young Florence is taking her first trial in model industry. As the new “face of college” for Jack Wills, Florence took her model debut for Jack Wills 2012 SS campaign. While also sharing her experience of shooting and her favorite piece of Jack Wills through her personal twitter, Florence is definitely continuing her modeling with Jack Wills.

While other sisters are younger following the elder, Luijendijk sisters took a different path.
