Jessica Clarke was hands down the top Kiwi model of 2010. In her first fashion month abroad, she dominated the international catwalks like no New Zealander has before, walking the Calvin Klein exclusive in New York, Dolce and Gabbana in Milan and Lanvin in Paris, bagging herself the upcoming D&G campaign in the process. Not bad for a 17 year old former national netball rep who hails from Palmerston North – a town that John Cleese described as being perfect for anybody wishing to kill themselves but lacking the inspiration. Honourable mentions also go to Bella Barber for her appearance in Kanye West’s monster video, Ella Drake for her Gucci exclusive back in February, and to Christopher Landon for his breakout first year in which he walked for Dolce and Gabbana and landed on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan. GO THE KIWIS!

    She was interviewed on one of the ‘backstage’ bits on Fashion TV the other day, I got a fright when I heard a kiwi accent!
