Ga Ga: G-Star Raw’s Runway Show With Benicio Del Toro And Wendell Lissimore

Blindie was front and center at G-Star Raw’s Fall/Winter 2009 runway show on Tuesday at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom along with Star Trek‘s Zoe Saldana, 90210‘s Shenae Grimes, and Make Me A Supermodel‘s Tyson Beckford.

We were pleasantly surprised to see Ga Ga-worthy model Wendell Lissimore walk the runway and cheered with everyone when G-star’s new “Icon” Benicio Del Toro came out to read Joy Division’s “Candidate” before the finale.

The show began with black and white formal attire reminiscent of the 1930s and 40s–we even spied a women’s variation of a bowler hat. The bygone era then seamlessly gave way to G-Star’s quintessential military stylings–early aviator and sailor inspired ensembles adorned with dramatic collars, and straps and buckles that would make Edward Scissorhands proud. Two live pianists played a dramatic classical score throughout that evoked the beauty and gravity of both the silent film era and the future.

Blindie is ga ga for G-Star Raw and we are making it our new religion!

Ga Ga: Wendell Lissimore Works Overtime

A Utah native and former boxer, Wendell Lissimore has the right balance of ruggedness and beauty to become the next male supermodel (Tyson who?)!

The 23 year-old signed with New York’s Red Models in 2006 and has been working overtime ever since. In 2007, he landed the Bloomingdale’s fall catalog and an editorial in Vanity Fair, and by 2008 he was walking in shows for Hermes, Ungaro, and Thierry Mugler. The model newbie even got a chance to work with one of the original supermodels, Linda Evangelista for a V editorial.

This month finds Wendell on the cover of Japan’s LUSSW, bleu magazine, and the Italian D magazine with his little son, Phoenix.

Blindie’s just ga ga for Wendell–AND Phoenix!
