Timing is Everything

Eurasian model Mackenzie Hamilton was discovered at age fourteen in Vancouver, Canada at a local model talent search. Now aged twenty-one and represented by DNA Model Management, Hamilton has just come off the back of an impressive NYFW Fall/Winter 2012 season, appearing in a total of twelve shows. Hamilton is no stranger to the runway circuit, having previously walked for the likes of Christian Lacroix, Diane Von Furstenberg, Just Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Elie Saab and Akris. The difference however this season is that Hamilton exudes a womanly confidence and self-assurance that was clearly evident at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Band of Outsiders, Suno, Jenny Packham, and Zero + Maria Cornejo amongst others.

I first noticed Hamilton back in August 2008 when she was featured in V Magazine as part of DNA's line-up for the model powerhouse portfolio photographed by Sebastian Faena. The image was telling, as Hamilton all but faded into the background overshadowed by established models of the day like Doutzen Kroes, Maryna Linchuk and Agyness Deyn. Fast-forward to December 2011 and Hamilton popped up again in V's annual model powerhouse feature, only this time she stood out in front Alex Cayley's lens looking incandescent. The transformation was remarkable and the look in Hamilton's eyes foreshadowed a determination and knowing that she is ready for her moment in the spotlight. Hamilton is clearly genetically blessed with a dreamy complexion, exquisite bone structure and model perfect proportions. With a steely confidence now in place as the most valuable part of her arsenal, I'm gunning for Hamilton to truly make her mark at the Fall/Winter 2012 shows in Milan and Paris.
