New Faces Seen on Catwalk
For several seasons, there have been talks about the model diversity seen in shows during high-end fashion weeks. This year, there were a few new faces added to the usual lineup. It’s only right to properly introduce some of the faces that stuck out most to me.
Anais Mali for Ford models was seen walking in Tom Ford’s runway show. A native of Nice, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France, she has also walked in Derek Lam, Bottega Veneta, and Nina Ricci shows, to name a few. She has a universal beauty that makes her perfect for both designer RTW (ready-to-wear) as well as more mainstream brands like Gap, Levi, and Victoria Secret.
Katryn Kruger of South Africa and IMG models is absolutely stunning in every show she walks in. Although she is only a tender 17, she already has a Prada campaign checked off her to list. She has walked already for Valentino, Giambattista Valli, and Elie Saab. Her look is unforgettable.
Model Liu Wen, took my breath away. She’s a regular on both the runway and in magazines She made history when she became the first person of East Asian descent to be featured in an Estee Lauder campaign. She has walked for Alexander Wang, Jason Wu, Oscar De La Renta, and many others.
Finally, Cora Emmanuel, is a twenty-year-old beauty fresh from Martinique. This season she was seen modeling for Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, and Tommy Hilfiger in New York. She was selected by casting director John Pfeiffer to wear the opening and closing looks in the Bottega Veneta’s spring collection. After reading a few interviews with her, it’s safe to say she’s an allover sweet girl.
Keep an eye out for these beautiful ladies sauntering down the runways and posing for the best campaigns. They all stumbled into their craft differently, but one thing they do all hold in common; they can strut their stuff.
