January 26 is Frankie Rayder’s birthday.
The names of Aquarius models don’t just pop into my head like they do with Capricorn models, or Scorpio models, or any other models. I know a few that I can rattle off quite easily, though: Meghan Collison; Sasha Pivovarova; Frankie Rayder.
What’s weird is that those three all owe a huge debt of gratitude to Steven Meisel. He’s a Gemini, like many of the greatest behind-the-scenes talents in the fashion business. Still, he obviously has an affinity with Aquarius models when I notice a pattern in his behavior when I wasn’t really looking for one.
That’s something I need to look into. Maybe there are more Aquarius models who owe their careers to Steven Meisel. I know that he has worked with Amber Valletta. I should see if he’s worked with Doutzen Kroes or Lily Donaldson.
It might look like I’m reaching to find a connection, but often these things just fall into my lap and I’m able to make the connection.
By the time Steven Meisel’s birthday arrives in June, I should have figured this all out . . .
