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.
