For the past two seasons, Dominican-born model Rose Cordero had been at the very top of her game! Even though the 18-year-old stunner is new to the modeling scene—she worked her first Fashion Week season in February 2009—she’s already made quite a name for herself. Not only was she downright ubiquitous on the New York, Paris, London and Milan runways this season (here she is, steaming up the Christian Dior Fall 2010 show), she landed the cover of Paris Vogue March 2010 issue. Known for her impossibly long, caramel-colored limbs and sexy, short natural ‘do, Cordero is a natural superstar on the runway and in print—and we can’t wait to see more of her. Here, check out a gallery of her most memorable runway and magazine moments.
Cordero worked the Lacoste Fall 2010 runway in super-smoky eyes, rose lips, and a color-blocked, body-conscious frock.
Rose Cordero landed the cover of Paris Vogue’s March 2010 issue, making her the magazine’s first Black cover girl since Liya Kebede in 2002.
Cordero turned heads in a huge, oversized afro wig at the now-infamous Spring 2010 Louis Vuitton show.
Instantly a star in her native Dominican Republic, Rose landed on the cover of Oh! magazine shortly after she began modeling.
With her slicked-back do and clean, matte skin, Cordero flaunted a minimalist-chic look at the Zac Posen Fall 2010 runway show.
Diane von Furstenberg’s Fall 2010 show boasted one of the most diverse model lineups of the entire season. Here, Rose Cordero makes a splash in a blousy LBD.
Rose Cordero was one of several models who appeared on the cover of V magazine’s prestigious September 2009 issue.
Genius designer Jean Paul Gaultier sent Cordero down his Fall 2010 runway rocking an elaborately embroidered fur trapper hat. So chic.
In December 2009, Cordero was styled as Grace Jones for a beyond-stunning French Vogue editorial.
