1. Hiandra Martinez
Martinez opened the first Anthony Vaccarello-designed Saint Laurent show as an exclusive, and it’s easy to see why the Dominican model got that coveted spot. Her look and walk exude sexiness and toughness — a true embodiment of the designer’s signature style.
2. Lameka Fox
Fox was scouted by mega-model agency IMG on Instagram, so there’s no doubt that she’s gorgeous. She also has an awesome walk that landed her in shows Paco Rabanne, Topshop, and Thakoon this past season.
3. Halima Aden
Halima Aden has been unstoppable since walking her first runway show for Yeezy Season 5. Wearing a hijab and rocking her flawless skin, the Somali-American model made waves in the best way and has since booked more high-profile shows.
4. Marie Fofana
Hailing from Senegal, Fofana was a runway fixture in New York, Milan and Paris walking shows such as Rochas, MSGM and Altuzarra. With her luminous mahogany complexion and high cheekbones, she was absolutely breathtaking.
5. Selina Khann
Khann’s glossy black hair and perfect features have landed her campaigns with Ralph Lauren, Macy’s and Lacoste in the past, but she also makes quite the impression sauntering down the runway. We spotted her at Rebecca Minkoff looking boho-beautiful.
6. Tatiana Elizabeth
We first saw this glowing goddess at the all-WOC show for Maki Oh and fell for her hazel eyes and endlessly long legs.
7. Crystal Noreiga
Pretty much no one can pull off sequins, plaid, logo shirts and face paint but somehow Noreiga mentioned to do it all and still look incredible at Ashish.
8. Alanna Arrington
Arrington’s bouncy curls and killer bod have catapulted her onto both commercial runways (Victoria’s Secret) and also dozens of high fashion defilées. This season she walked Prabal Gurung, Jeremy Scott and Off-White to name a few.
9. Samile Bermanneli
This Brazilian stunner had an extremely busy and successful fashion month. We spotted her at Marc Jacobs and Yeezy in NYC, Etro in Milan (pictured) and Off-White and Mugler in Paris.
10. Hannah Shakespeare
This British babe walked for the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Issey Miyake, but didn’t let runway fame get in the way of a few fun backstage moments.
11. Rina Fukushi
Whether she’s in an oversized hoodie, a pink pleated dress, or a fur coat, the Japanese model owned each outfit. We expect to see much more of this versatile beauty.
12. Barbra-Lee Grant
This Jamaican model graced Emilio Pucci, Mulberry and Jonathan Simkhai with her signature strut and gorgeous gams.
13. Brittany Noon
This Antiguan beauty has been hailed as the next big thing in fashion with her baby-doll face and sylphlike figure.
14. Yoon Young Bae
Whether she’s rocking all white at Burberry or decked out in all-black at Sportmax, Bae always commands onlookers’ attention. Keep your eyes peeled for this Korean It-girl.
15. Nicole Atieno
She’s only 20 years old but has already walked Gucci six times! Enough said.
