"New Text Document 7 Fashion week whipped through New York and now it’s off"
Fashion week whipped through New York, and now it’s off to Europe. But the runway styles are only some of the stars—also making their names were the handful of fresh-faced models who took key shows by storm. The clear frontrunners for this title of top newcomer are Emily Baker and Kate King. Both have long faces, razor-sharp cheekbones, and piercing eyes. And both are naturals on the runway, poised like they’ve been doing this for years. Baker—a 16-year-old from New Zealand who bears a striking resemblance to Iselin Steiro—walked Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, and Rag & Bone (to name just a few). And we’re getting a cool- girl, Ruby Aldridge vibe from King, who stunned at Diane von Furstenberg and Tommy Hilfiger. Other girls who caused a stir include Sui He, the Wenzhou, China, native with an elegant profile who opened Ralph Lauren (the first Asian model to do so in recent years), and Codie Young, an Aussie with dreamy eyes à la Gemma Ward, who did turns at Rodarte and Calvin Klein Collection. Stay tuned to see what happens in Europe.
