Models of the Moment: Seven for All Modelkind
Sep 25, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Bring me...my girls. From fresh faces to bona fide supers, these seven models are not only having a moment, they are the moment.
Karlie Kloss - The supermodel of the moment, Karlie's stardom was cemented with her special cover of Life magazine and her transition to grown-ass woman cemented by her nude spread shot by Mario Testino.
Lara Stone - If Karlie is the super of today, Lara is the icon of tomorrow, as well as Calvin Klein's sole star for the past few seasons and an editorial fave.
Nyasha Matonhodze - Fellow LOVE cover star Nyasha Matonhodze is everywhere right now -- from ads for Topshop and Louis Vuitton, to walking in the spring 2012 shows of Pucci, Versace, Donna Karan, Matthew Williamson and Giles.
Daphne Groeneveld - Matching Nyasha step for step and sitting with her in the backseat of those LV ads is 16-year-old Daphne Groeneveld, possessor of one of the most striking faces in the industry.
Fei Fei Sun - An editorial stunner, Fei Fei is also part of that Louis V trifecta and walked in huge shows like Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Prada and also stars in Barney's Carine Roitfeld-helmed fall campaign.
Ehren Dorsey - Dorsey is a shorn beauty whose graceful androgyny brings to mind Jenny Shimizu in her 90s heyday.
Magda Laguinge - Little is known about this up-and-comer except that she scored the biggest coup of New York Fashion Week by opening Marc Jacobs.
