Last season Palmerston North native Jessica Clarke did what no other Kiwi has done before, walking the Calvin Klein exclusive in New York, followed by successful turns at both Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks. She then converted the lot with a whole string of D&G campaigns, making her likelihood of success this season all the greater. This time around she’s joined in New York by Clyne/DNA agency mate Emily Baker, whose star – I reckon – is surely on the rise. Hailing from Matamata (a tiny town east of Hamilton), Baker has been modelling six months, and bears a striking resemblance to both Lara Stone and Emma Balfour. Despite her lack of experience, I’m predicting big things. All the best to the New Zealanders in New York – Jessica Clarke, Georgia Fowler, Zippora Seven, Emily Baker and Karen Walker, who’s showing on Tuesday February 15 at 10:00am. GO THE KIWIS! See you there – I’m catching the red eye to JFK tonight.
I LIKE YOU!
