W Magazine: Cara Delevigne

Once you’ve been hand selected by Karl Lagerfeld,  there’s not much that can be done to stop you.  Lagerfeld favorite and all-around “it” girl, Cara Delevigne, has swept the world by storm with her effortless beauty and refreshing personality. With an impressive FW14 Campaign season including work with blue chip clients Chanel, Burberry, Tom Ford, DKNY and Balmain this British beauty is showing no sign of slowing down.

Cara also tops the list as being one of the most most talked about people in the world.  Could we have perhaps happened across the next Ms. Moss?

Whether appearing in music videos beside Beyonce or fronting lucrative campaigns for Estee Lauder or Balmain, Joan Smalls is the quintessential definition of the modern day Super Model.

 Joan’s roster for the year includes leading campaign roles for Marc Jacobs, Balmain, Chanel, Alexander Wang, and Gucci.Her runway resume is just as impressive walking shows for almost every top designer from Givenchy to Stella McCartney. I think we’re quite safe in saying that Joan has earned her title as Super Model.


3. JOURDAN DUNN

Calvin Klein: Jourdan Dunn

Industry starlet Jourdan Dunn is everything that one can ask for in a  muse. With a striking face that carries beauty and a statuesque drape that struts across the runways of any designer worth mentioning, the iconic Ms. Dunn boasts a year of prestigious bookings including campaigns for Calvin Klein, Balmain, and the September Issue of Italian Vogue.

Jordan knows how to work the spotlight as well. She can be seen side by side with stars like Jay-z and Beyonce or her supermodel BFF’s Cara Delevigne, the two even have matching tatoos. Could this be two parts of the new super model holy trinity?


 4. KENDALL JENNER

INTERVIEW MAGAZINE GERMANY: KENDALL JENNER

Kendall Jenner is perhaps the most well-known model on our list. Following in the uber mogul footsteps of her big sister Kim Kardashian and the entirity of the Jenner/Kardashian clan, Kendall finds herelf in a particularly intriguing position. With Fashion’s ever increasing fascination with pop culture, could this perhaps be the perfect marriage of honest super model potential and headline making commentary?

Don’t be mistaken, Ms. Jenner is far from all talk.  A ground breaking Givenchy campaign, a handful of magazine  editorials (including the covers of Teen Vogue, Interview, and LOVE), and a runway resume that would put any top model to shame, Kendall is proving that there’s many roads to the top as long as you have the talent  to back it all up.


5. ANNA EWERS

VOGUE PARIS: ANNAEWERS

It requires a special sort of beauty to break through the casting books of fashion’s great editorialists.  The elegantly seductive Anna Ewers has done just that solidifying herself as a regular for industry taste makers Mert & Marcus, Demarchelier, and Meisel.

Her impressive portfolio doesn’t stop there, with campaigns for Versace, Prada, Balenciaga, Moncler Gamme Rouge,  and those unforgettable Alexander Wang images that we just couldn’t stop talking about, Anna certainly knows how to make a statement.
