Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid might have dominated the fashion industry this year, but now that they’re fully established supermodels the business needs fresh newcomers. So which up-and-coming models are set to make their mark in 2016?
2015 was undoubtedly Gigi Hadid’s year but hot on her heels is little sister Bella. The two appeared in Balmain’s sister-themed Autumn/Winter 2015 campaign back in the summer and the move spring-boarded Bella into the limelight. She has really come into her own of late, making her Chanel debut in December for the label’s Metiers d’Art 2015/16 show.
Ruth and May Bell
Identical twins Ruth and May Bell, 19, have been working as models since they were 16, but get ready to see a lot more of them thanks to Burberry, which cast the pair in its Spring/Summer 2016 campaign. The UK fashion label is notorious for its talent at catapulting new talent to stardom.
Despite being signed by major modeling agency Storm, Kate Moss’s little sister Lottie has managed to keep a low profile. Until this month, that is, when the teenager made her debut in Vogue for a shoot alongside Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner. The magazine revealed that she plans to move to London to model in the near future, meaning her fame factor is surely about to go off the charts.
The daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis has made waves this year, largely thanks to a great relationship with Karl Lagerfeld, who cast her in both his Autumn/Winter 2015 and Spring/Summer 2016 shows for Chanel. The 16-year-old model and actress made a bold campaign debut in July the face of the French fashion house’s new eyewear line, and 2016 will surely see her star status rocket even further.
She may only be 14, but Kaia Gerber, the daughter of the original supermodel Cindy Crawford, is already causing a stir in fashion land. The genetically blessed model hit the headlines this year when she appeared in Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book, and a shoot for the December issue of Teen Vogue has set her on track for a strong 2016.
