Balmain Has Enlisted 3 CGI Models to Join the Balmain Army
Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing is 32 years old and always doing funky fresh millennial things, like posting on his Instagram story with Gigi Hadid and coining the hashtag #BalmainArmy to mean (officially) the models and celebrities that wear Balmain and (unofficially) anyone that wears Balmain.
The latest members of the Balmain army do not have heartbeats, because they are CGI.According to Refinery29, worked with Cameron-James Wilson—the CGI artist behind Fenty Beauty's controversial Shudu model—to create two Balmain-exclusive, digital supermodels. The models, who've been named Margot (left) and Xhi (right), join the original Shudu (center) model to form a new, more diverse Balmain army. In their first campaign, the trio are promoting the Balmain Bbox bag. As Refinery reports, Rousteing told them Margot was the "French girl of his childhood dreams," while Xhi is "a Chinese beauty with a really short haircut."
Three ways of taking your body, your mind and your life in hand (VOGUE PARIS)
THE CONCEPT: “Body&Mind” training that combines the physical and mental preparation that footballers undergo, the breathing technique used by divers, and sophrology. Former professional footballer Morgan Biancone offers his services to company directors, politicians and Victoria’s Secret models to get their bodies and minds in tip–top shape.
THE PROTOCOL: There are two parts to each session. The first is physical, and is based on a series of exercises using an elastic to contract and relax all your muscles, from head to toe — the only way to release all the tension and toxins in your body and prepare for the next stage. The second part of the course deals with the mind, and is based on breathing and visualisation techniques, guided by his voice. Each session focuses on what participants are looking to improve, from self– confidence, to surpassing themselves, improving their sense of community, or tolerance to stress. The participant is then given exercises to do alone for optimum effect.
THE RESULTS: Once the mental and physical blocks are identified and lifted, the programme is designed to transform us into a souped–up version of ourselves with a fitter body, but also keener senses and greater intuition.
