35 Snapshots of Models Off the Catwalk

BFA’s street style sharpshooters capture fashion’s most in-demand ladies in their natural habitats

“Let the photos do the talking by exposing something seemingly mundane and illuminating it,” said photographer and BFA co-founder David X. Prutting. He was referring to a specific kind of photography approach he credits to street style lens master Mordecai Rubinstein, who helms the fashion blog Mister Mort. As any person can gather, models are hardly mundane. But it’s when they’re off the catwalk and in the wild—existing in their natural, concrete habitats—that we see a more personal side of their glamorous lives. Whether they’re exiting a show (and presumably hauling ass to the next one) like a tube top-clad Binx Walton leaving Dolce & Gabbana in Milan, fresh coconut in one hand, Alexander Wang cannabis-print bag in the other, or throwing a peace sign, like Soo Joo Park did after Haider Ackermann in Paris, her peroxide locks still in the spiky, birds-of-paradise masterpiece crafted by Katsura Kamo backstage, there’s something intriguing about catwalkers simply existing in all their beautiful glory. Click through the slideshow above to see the best models-off-duty snapshots from Spring 2017, all lensed by BFA photographers Julien Boudet, Hunter Abrams, and Prutting.
