Nineteen-year-old Lyndsey Scott’s rapid ascent to the top tiers of the modeling world has been no less than a whirlwind (“No model, black or white, in recent memory has made such an instant impact,” Bethann Hardison told us, post-fashion week). The New Jersey-native was discovered by Click Models in ‘08, and a couple months later, she made her runway debut at the Fall ’09 Calvin Klein show, becoming the first Black model to score an exclusive with the label! Since then, Scott has become a catwalk and editorial favorite, walking in shows like Vera Wang, Fendi, Gucci, Prada, and Victoria’s Secret (left); and appearing in high-fashion spreads for Italian Elle, Teen Vogue and W. We can’t wait to see with this willowy, delicate-featured beauty does next!
