South African cutie Katryn Kruger made an auspicious debut last season via a Givenchy show exclusive. Within weeks Kruger found herself posing in front of Steven Meisel's lens for the Spring/Summer 2012 Prada campaign. The buzz surrounding Kruger in the lead up to the Fall/Winter 2012 season was palpable with Wayne Sterling of models.com stating emphatically, "For Fall 2012....this girl is everything." Kruger glided seamlessly through the Fall/Winter 2012 collections with a steady stream of strategically placed runway appearances. Nothing was left to chance in New York, with Kruger demonstrating commercial appeal at Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, BCBG Max Azria, Derek Lam, Diane Von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren and Marc by Marc Jacobs. In London, IMG Model Management tapered back Kruger's bookings to four appearances at Acne, Belstaff, Giles and Christopher Kane. At the Milan and Paris collections, the beast was finally unleashed with Kruger snaring a slew of blue chip shows including Prada, Missoni, Marni, Dolce & Gabbana, Chloé, Givenchy, Valentino and Louis Vuitton amongst others. With a total runway tally of 39 shows, Kruger achieved an impressive second season showing without resorting to exclusive runway tactics and more importantly without running the career stalling risk of over-exposure.
