Featured in Chapter Four: Power
Beckie Klein's Bio
Beckie was born and raised in a small Florida town surrounded by three generations of family and a close-knit community. At the age of 18 she was discovered by Ford models and invited to live and work in New York City as a fashion model. Soon after, she joined Elite Models and moved to Paris and worked throughout Europe for magazines such as Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire. While the world of modeling exposed her to the business of fashion, living in Paris is where she says her real education in style began, from working with fashion industry icons to studying the effortless style of average French women in the streets. After ten years of modeling and commercial work, Beckie settled in NYC and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a journalism degree from Columbia University. She combined her passions and began writing for American Photo, Surface and Blackbook Photography among other international art and photography magazines. Today, Beckie is a wife, mother of two and co-founder of “beckiemartina, re-stylists,” which she founded in 2009 with former model and long time friend Martina Gordon. Together they change the lives of women everyday with their fashion experience and insights. Beckie continues to live in NYC in Tribeca with her husband Keith and their sons Ry and Caleb.

Martina Gordon's Bio
Martina was born in a small town in Slovakia where her only exposure to fashion was through the German pattern books she carefully studied to select the clothes her mother made. All that changed in 1991 when she was discovered by Elite models and offered a contract to live and work in Milan, Vienna and, her favorite city, Paris where she had the privilege of working with the greatest designers and fashion houses such as Chanel, Chloe, YSL, Dior, Ferre, Rochas and cutting edge fashion magazines, which she says shaped the tastes and points of view she has today. She moved to New York City in 1994 and continued working with fashion publications, department stores and became the face of Max factor cosmetics and Pantene. She later collaborated with Bruuns Bazaar in Copenhagen on the styling of their 2003-08 fashion shows. Martina’s other passion is jewelry design and in 2010, together with her sister Ivona Bruun, established “i’m jewel” - a feminine, modern, sophisticated line of jewelry sold in New York, Paris and Copenhagen. She currently lives in New York with her husband Anthony and their two boys Venice and Reef.
