The Power of Persistence

Portland native Kendra Spears is experiencing somewhat of a career resurgence with multiple appearances in Paris Vogue, French Numéro and Muse Magazine. Spears continues to build on that momentum with a German Vogue July 2012 cover appearance shot by photographic duo Claudia Knoepfel & Stefan Indlekofer. The twenty-three year old All-American beauty poses in head-to-toe Prada with neon psychedelic strips scattered throughout her lustrous auburn locks. Spears first emerged on the modelling scene in 2008 via the Ford Supermodel of the World contest amidst much fanfare, drawing attention due to her distinct nineties supermodel vibe and due to the mole above her lip which resembles that of supermodel Cindy Crawford. After an explosive 2008 debut season in which she walked for Valentino, Gucci, Hermés, Nina Ricci, and Lanvin amongst others, interest in Spears plateaued and she soon found that she was no longer the most buzzed about newcomer. Spear has since been working steadily to diversify her look to appeal to a variety of clients, and has been duly rewarded with renewed interest from key industry power players. Look out for more of Spears in the latter part of 2012.
