Ally + Marga Making Waves – Gucci Resort 2016

This past week was a great one for the girls of Photogenics. We saw Ally Ertel continuing her runway streak at Gucci Resort 2016 after having recently walked for Louis Vuitton Cruise 2016 and Calvin Klein Resort 2016, and Marga Esquivel causing a stir with her silver locks and effortlessly cool swagger on the same Gucci Resort 2016 runway.

Here are some visuals to help you get with it:

Photogenics supports Animals Asia #BearRelief

Man, do we have the most wonderful models ever! Photogenics alum, Shaina Danziger, (model/author/activist) has spent the last four and a half months channeling her talent and energy towards a cause not many of us knew existed.  The campaign, featuring Anthony Keidis of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, Moby, Duff McKagan, Steve O and Matt Lucas, aims to raise awareness for an Animal Rights group based out of Hong Kong called Animals Asia which is an organization that is working tirelessly to put an end to both the cruel and horrific practice of bear bile farming as well as the cat and dog meat trade. The campaign has already been featured by NY Daily News, Vogue Italia, and Conde Nast Live.


And if the campaign photo doesn’t already tug on our heart strings enough, the campaign video, written and directed by Shaina herself, should do the trick!  With a clever tagline “Let a Bear Shit in the Woods,” the campaign is a satirical PSA which Shaina hopes will grab the attention of animal lovers worldwide.  It was a no-brainer for us! Check out the campaign including Photogenics models, Courtney Money, Therese Tabbert, and Giavanna Witted.

Visit to pledge and show your support!!! #BearRelief

And yet ANOTHER hat tip to our killer runway booker, Emily DeTomaso, for landing our babies (Dakota Bottcher, Grace Cotton, and Nina Milner) in the latest Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 event set in the desert oasis of Palm Springs, CA with Bob Hope’s former home as a backdrop. Here’s a look at the event including a shot from the runway with Ally Ertel.
