Watching a beautiful - no, scrape that - stunning (much better), girl turning from a gorgeous youngster into a fashion model is a very emotional process. One day she is there, sparkling eyes, shy smile, curls, like Bambi, melting your heart - and then, in a matter of months, no weeks even, in a magazine and walking down the catwalk...  At first, just an editorial here and there, a show or two  (mind you, when your first show is Miu Miu it IS a big deal!) and, comes summer, a Weekend by Max Mara Lookbook, a shoot for French Vogue, then Numero and, finally, a story in Vogue Germany that I wanted to share here... Love her, love her face and adore these photos, especially the black and white ones. Truly girls like this are most likely made in heaven.

  3. I always wonder about young girls like this, and if they see themselves the way we see them; I know how I perceived myself at Melina's age and, even if I had done a lookbook for Miu Miu, I doubt it would have convinced me of much of anything. She is stunning... I just wonder if she knows it.
