Call me biased, but Kiwi Emily Baker seems to be the most talked about new face model here at New York Fashion Week. First there was the Hint Mag mention, then the highly coveted models.com nod. But talk is cheap, the proof is in the pudding. And yesterday she made good on the hype, walking for Rag and Bone (as seen above), alongside some of the top girls in the business: Lindsey Wixson, Jac Jablonski, Julia Nobis, Hanne Gaby Odiele and Edita Vilkeviciute. Not bad work for the Matamata teen’s second ever turn on a runway. Here’s to many more (rumour has it she might appear in Alexander Wang this afternoon). Baker’s fellow Clyne/DNA agency mate Jessica Clarke also showed up yesterday, walking for New Zealand expat Rebecca Taylor. GO THE KIWIS!
I LIKE YOU!
