Due to strict Parisian modelling laws stating that no under 18 year old may work a job that runs later than 10:00pm, 17 year old Kiwi Emily Baker wasn’t able to walk the Chanel Haute Couture show last night. While that may have disappointed fans of the young star, every cloud has a silver lining: Baker’s first only-girl campaign came out overnight for DSQUARED2. I say her first only-girl campaign because Baker also appeared in the Fall 11/12 Hilfiger campaign last month, but she was joined by 15 other models, a vintage deep sea diving costume and a dog. Baker is bronzed and brooding for DSQUARED2, and – coincidentally – wearing quite the Lagerfeld-ian collar and tie get-up. (No doubt it’s a sign of things to come.) Big ups to Baker! That’s how they do it in Matamata.
I LIKE YOU!
