Not only was the Phillip Lim 3.1 show one of the most heralded of the season, it featured one of the most gorgeous newcomers in all of modeldom: Herieth Paul. Discovered at a casting call two years ago, the 16-year-old Tanzanian model is quickly become a runway fixture with her impossibly long limbs, adorable natural ‘do and intense gaze. She’s the one to watch this year!
At Badgley Mischka, the look was retro 1930s curls and pastel, kewpie doll makeup—and no one worked it better than newcomer Melodie Monrose. The leggy Wilhelmina model is causing quite a stir with her glass-cut cheekbones, flawless mocha skin and expressive eyes. Melodie, you’re officially one of our FW favorites!
In almost a blink of an eye, Joan Smalls has become a runway darling! After penning a “Model Diary” for ESSENCE.com a couple seasons ago, the fledgling superstar took a star-making turn on the Givenchy Couture catwalk that sent her career soaring. These days, she’s one of the most sought-after runway models in the world, and she appears in major editorials and campaigns.
