Total Eclipse

Dutch model Elza Luijendijk has eclipsed the field following her stunning Fall/Winter 2012 debut season which saw her stalking the most exclusive of runways for Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen. The sixteen-year-old newcomer is now in the enviable position of having landed blue chip Fall/Winter 2012 campaigns for both Versace and Prada, whilst maintaining a strong editorial presence with appearances in French Numéro, Dazed & Confused and V Magazine. Not bad for the 180 cm ingenue who was only scouted a little over a year ago along with her twin sister whilst dining in a restaurant.

Luijendijk's interest in fashion design, her chameleon-like beauty and commanding presence have garnered the attention and praise of key industry figures. Much like her favourite model Linda Evangelista, Luijendijk displays a stunning versatility, morphing from car-yard bombshell for French Numéro to otherworldly goddess for Dazed & Confused with remarkable ease. In an interview with Vogue Italia, Luijendijk  lists a Vogue Italia cover as one of her dream assignments. With Steven Meisel having already captured her for Prada's Fall/Winter 2012 campaign and Vogue Italia's penchant for showcasing new faces, Luijendijk's dream could well become a reality in the not so distant future.
