3 models to keep an eye on

Valentino: Runway - Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2014


The fashion world is in search of the next Cara Delevingne. With Fashion Month around the corner, keep your eyes on these three ladies, one of them might just be the new “it” girls of 2014 —  but remember where you heard about them first.

Holly Rose Emery
For spring/summer ’14, Holly took on almost 30 shows, pretty good for her first ever ready-to-wear season. Highlights for the New Zealand-born teen included Chanel, Valentino and closing the Mulberry show. With her fresh-faced, full-lipped look that brings Lindsey Wixson to mind, we’ll bet 2014 will see her in more than just a couple of editorial spreads.

Malaika Firth opened and closed the spring '14 Valentino show.

Taking spring/summer ’14 by storm after her career-boosting Prada campaign, a show barely passed without Malaika marching out on its catwalk. Adding extra diversity to a giant 54 shows in one season, the Kenyan-born gal had quite the fashion month, the highlight being opening and closing the revered Valentino show. AW14 is bound to be just as big.

Laura O' Grady wa handpicked for the Saint Laurent's spring/summer '14 show.

Laura O’Grady
Handpicked as a world exclusive for Saint Laurent’s spring/summer ’14 show, Irish model Laura O’Grady is undoubtedly going to be a top pick for AW14 castings as they couldn’t get their hands on her last season. Remember this face.
