Obviously, we could never come close to replicating the iconic work of Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition. Idolized by girls and guys alike (understandably), the SI Swim covers have long been a coveted spot for aspiring models worldwide. So, we decided to make this dream come true for a handful of the lovely ladies of Nous Models in an exclusive photoshoot for Nous Zine titled – what else – Nous Illustrated!

As a token of our love and appreciation for the famous SI Swim signature looks, Nous Illustrated is a fun expression of the growing talent here at Nous Models that we are amazed by every day. Captured by one of our favorite photographers Bogdan Morozovskiy, this featurette aims to inspire you to go for the gold. We hope you love it as much as we do!

A favorite photographer among our models- and all of us here at Nous HQ- is the one and only Lucas Passmore. His photos are unmistakable: think simple, vulnerable and tastefully sexy all at the same time, which is no small achievement! A master at bringing out the strongest attributes and fierce confidence of every girl he works with, when he’s not testing you can find Lucas shooting for some of our favorite brands like Rails and Chloe Oliver or on the pages of magazines like Bisous, Angeleno, Cosmo or even Maxim!

Lucas’s funny, vibrant and energetic personality is incredibly infectious to everyone around him – ironically, it’s kind of a contrast to his sultry photography style. His ability to capture beauty in it’s most pure form continues to amaze us, so we can easily say that our obsession with Lucas isn’t ending anytime soon (but, we’re more than okay with that).

Thank you Lucas! You have taught our girls so much and provided them with valuable experience that has helped them be the successful women that they are today. We’ve seriously enjoyed the past few years of working with you, and are looking forward to many more to come.

This. Is. EVERYTHING! Clearly, Athleta knows a thing or two about the daily lives of empowered women. Athleta  celebrates a woman’s  strength and control in their new #PowerToTheShe campaign.

Athleta is our favorite go-to fitness brand because it’s more than just perfectly practical, it’s totally fashion-forward.  So whatever you’ve got on your plate, Athleta can gear you up with apparel designed by and for female athletes that will easily transition into the other parts of your day.  They’ve even got an array of LBDs to sport at work or on a date!  Finally, a brand that keeps us looking and feeling both strong and chic at all times.

“Athleta customers want to do it all – they lead extremely active and busy lives but are still able to balance family, friends, exercise, work, and everything in between. Their desire to keep reaching for more is what ‘Power to the She’ is all about”, says their marketing VP.  We couldn’t agree more!  Our models were recently selected to be part of the new #PowerToTheShe campaign and totally embodied the Athleta woman.

Lauren Johnson is on top of the world right now.  Fresh off the plain from modeling in South Africa for a few months, she’s adjusting to life back in the states.  From castings, to jobs and everything in between, Lauren literally lives the slogan, ‘Power to the She’.  She loves that it reminds already strong women like her to bring that strength and independence to all aspects of their lives, and wardrobes.

 

 

15Niki Huey, mother of a beautiful little girl, could not agree more. “As a girl, I was always involved in any athletic activity that I could sign up for,” she explained. “The competitiveness and lessons taught–in both solo and team sports–is engrained in me. Now, as a mom to a young daughter, I really see and appreciate the value that sending messages of strength has to girls and women today.” As the bold narrative for the campaign suggests, Athleta understands that a woman is a source of limitless capability. We become stronger by empowering ourselves and encouraging others to strive for excellence as well. There is nothing a woman can’t do! Fo Porter, who has been one of the faces of the brand since early 2013 said she’s always felt “empowered by Athleta and all that they have to offer us women.” She went on to say, “I love who I am and the way I feel in their workout gear! Not only do I feel hot as hell, but it also drives me to kick that much more ass whatever activities I’m involved in. Whether it be in the gym, outdoors, yoga or Pilates; I’m confident in every step I take thanks to Athleta!”
