The rules of the modeling business are changing: as practice shows - slowly but surely. Brands, even those that have always adhered to the ideas of conventional beauty, increasingly place their bets on people of all kinds of appearances. At the end of the spring-summer shows, we tell you about ten girls representing the spirit of the times - young models who more often than others went to the catwalks of the most influential fashion brands.


Croatian model Faretta made her debut at the Givenchy show six months ago - this was the main impetus for her career. She opened Victoria Beckham, Roberto Cavalli and Mugler shows and closed Chloé at the just past Fashion Weeks. In addition, Faretta, despite her newbie status, has already appeared on the catwalk of a huge number of various brands - from Alexander Wang to Christian Dior. With youthful maximalism, the girl declares that she cannot wait for the moment when she finishes school. Faretta is ambitious and considers her modeling career to be a vocation to which she wants to devote her whole life - and her studies only get in the way.

Today the girl is assigned to two modeling agencies: Colors Model Management and Elite Paris & Milan. A 19-year-old Croatian woman on her Instagram asks not to look for her last name, and simply call her “Faretta”. She still has everything ahead - in the meantime, inspired by success, she regularly keeps a paper diary and shares photos with the event on social networks.

Ellen Rossa

The star of Brazilian Fashion Week, 17-year-old Ellen Rossa, is in the spotlight with the Alexander Wang show. It was her first show, but casting directors Chanel, Miu Miu, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana and DKNY, after an impressive debut, also couldn't resist the girl's charm. She has appeared on 29 shows in total.

Rossa got into the industry thanks to a scout who spotted her on her way home from school. He immediately saw in a girl with a memorable and unusual appearance for the modeling world - dark skin, high forehead, full lips and bright green eyes - a future star. Prior to that, Ellen Rossa spent her childhood watching anime and playing with her younger sisters. She admits that if she had not become a model, she would have devoted herself to exploring the depths and would have become a marine biologist.

Heo Young Jung

The Asian luxury market is growing and models from China, Japan and Korea are still popular. Ho Young Jung was born and raised in a small town near Seoul and started her career about six years ago. She says that in her life there was no fateful meeting with a scout in a cafe, like many others. She was guided by a practical approach to life: “Once I thought: how to earn money? And then a thought occurred to me. I'm quite tall, so why not try yourself in modeling?"

After exhausting castings and hard work in 2012, the girl got into ESteem Models, and a little later - in the TV show "Top Model in Korean", in which she took 2nd place. She takes her work seriously, but with a healthy dose of irony: “It seems to me that if I'm just fooling around, laughing out loud and making faces, the photos will turn out much more expressive and lively than if I just stand in a pose and look pretentiously into the frame ".

Marc Jacobs, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Max Mara, Alberta Ferretti - in the spring-summer 2017 show season, the red-haired model was a resounding success. Her first show this year, Rag & Bone, took place in New York. Jungkook liked the city so much that she decided to move to it.

Sarah Grace Wallerstedt

A freckled face framed by red hair, huge green eyes - Sarah Grace is not like most, and stylists and makeup artists willingly use this. As a child, the girl was complex because of her appearance and considered herself unattractive, but as she matured, she realized that her beauty simply did not fit into generally accepted standards.

So far, the portfolio of the 17-year-old model is a bit of a show. However, the fact that such giants of the fashion industry as Prada are interested in her, and Proenza Schouler have reserved an "exclusive" with her, means that the future is assured for her.The next logical step is the appearance of Sarah in the advertising campaigns of these brands. After the screenings, she returned to Texas, where she continued her studies at school. She is now in her final grade, and during Fashion Week, the teachers even turned on an online broadcast from the shows in which the girl participated.

Jesse Blumendaal

Dutch Jesse does not look like a regular model - at least thanks to the bleached eyebrows to transparency. The 20-year-old girl conquered the casting directors of brands such as Rag & Bone, Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, Tory Burch and Prabal Gurung with her looks, appearing at the shows for the spring-summer 2017 season. This is her first Fashion Week in New York - before that Blumendaal worked only in Europe. The Maison Margiela, Iris van Herpen and Fendi shows in which she participated at the Spring-Summer 2016 Fashion Week impressed her with their scale and spectacle.

In the future, she hopes to become a real star of the modeling business, stating in an interview: “Every model wants to appear in the most famous advertising campaigns, so that her photo hangs on billboards or open grandiose shows - I also dream about this, although I understand that on it will take time."

Elibeydi Denis Martinez

Although models of African descent are given more and more options today, sometimes it seems that not much has changed since the iconic Yves Saint Laurent show. Naomi Campbell, Jordan Dunn and Tyra Banks continue to fight racial discrimination on the runways. They are especially outraged by the inability of makeup artists to adapt makeup for skin tones, except for light ones.

Fortunately, each season brings new names to the table, which may improve things in the future. For example, 19-year-old model Elibeydi Denis Martinez from the Dominican Republic just managed to close the Burberry show for the spring-summer 2017 season, when American Vogue immediately included her in the list of "New models to know by sight." Further - more: in the same season, she was lucky enough to participate in the shows Prada, John Galliano, Paco Rabanne, Jil Sander and Gucci.

Nora Attal

Nora began her modeling career at 16 when she became the face of J.W. Anderson's Spring / Summer 2014 campaign. Now she works with the London agency Viva, which regularly offers her new projects. So, last season she managed to take part in the shows of Nina Ricci, Celiné, Prada, J.W. Anderson and many others.

She owes her appearance to Moroccan roots. The girl says that every year she and her family visit relatives in this country. Her favorite picture is "The Persistence of Memory" by Salvador Dali, the musical period is the early noughties, and the site (apart from social networks) is BBC News. She wants to study forensics at university, but in the meantime she works as a model and watches American Horror Story in between shows.

Hannah Alice

Australian Hannah Alice looks like she has stepped out of the paintings of the Renaissance artists. With her black-winged bob and unusual appearance, she conquered last year Nicolas Ghesquière, who invited her to the Louis Vuitton show for the spring-summer 2016 season. Then her hairstyle was inspired by two of her favorite films: "Leon" and "Pulp Fiction". Now the hair has already grown back, but a modeling career is not a reason to leave experiments with appearance: Alice has been used to dyeing her hair since she was 13 years old. Once she even wanted to shave baldly, but changed her mind.

In addition to constantly participating in the shows of Louis Vuitton, Hannah appeared in the shows of the spring-summer 2017 season - Giambattista Valli, Rochas, Salvatore Ferragamo, Giamba. It is known that her favorite book is "Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov, and her main dream is to travel the world as much as possible.

Julia Ratner

The Ukrainian model is often compared to Sasha Pivovarova and Gemma Ward. This is not surprising: all three have high cheekbones and huge doll eyes. Julia's story is unique and simple to the point of impossibility: once her mother went to another city to sell a cat - the director of a modeling agency turned out to be the buyer. At the meeting, Julia told her that she would like to try herself as a model, and since then they have been cooperating.

At the age of 17, the girl reached the heights in the industry: she became the face of the RED Valentino cruise lookbook and participated in the fall-winter 2016 show Prada, Celiné, Dolce & Gabbana.The next season, the list of shows only increased: here Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Valentino, Celiné, Christian Dior, Loewe, Maison Margiela and many others. In total, she took the podium 28 times.

Nova Orchid

The cropped bangs are a tribute to Die Antwoord's lead singer. With this hairstyle, Nova Orchid has been walking since the age of 13, and it was at this age that a scout noticed her. She is not limited to modeling work: the girl loves to ride a longboard, roller skates and play the clarinet. Orchid collaborates with the modeling agency IMG Models, which every now and then offers her a new job: in the spring-summer 2017 season, she appeared at the shows of Chanel, Giamba, Stella McCartney and many others.
