This February, we got a little...giddy at the Proenza Schouler Fall 2013 show, not just because of the usual parade of need-t0-own clothes, but because there, in a rounded white coat, was Sasha Pivovarova, in all her signature-stomp, heart-faced, ice-blue-stare glory. Backstage, we caught up with the Brooklynite and her baby, Mia (born last May), but only for a quick Instagram:
And then she was off.
Pardon our excitement, but it had been two years since the Russian model walked for fashion week (though she has kept up her relationship with Prada, as the face of Resort 2013), taking a break to soak up all that new-mom goodness. And though Proenza was Sasha's only runway appearance so far this year, the girl is back. Just stop by your nearest magazine stand to see her spilling onto pages of American Vogue’s July and August issues, the cover of August’s Vogue Japan, and, just this week, fronting campaigns for both Proenza Schouler and Saint Laurent, arguably the hottest gig of the season. Not to get ahead of ourselves, but it is starting to feel like the golden age of Pivovarova all over again, when we couldn’t turn a corner without running into her (captured by Meisel, Mert and Marcus, or Demarchelier). Sasha, welcome back. You've been missed.
