High Hopes

Amongst a sea of Dutch, Brazilian, Chinese, Russia and Australian newcomers, eighteen-year old American ingenue Madison Hope Headrick is somewhat of an anomaly. Hailing from Charleston, South Carolina, Headrick has been modelling since 2009 and made an indelible mark recently at the Fall/Winter 2012 collections with her sole exclusive appearance at Prada. Interest in the all-American, athletic beauty with the dreamy green eyes has been such that she has appeared in a succession of critical and lucrative editorial bookings, ranging from French Numéro to Interview, Dazed & Confused, British Vogue, Australian Harpers Bazaar and Oyster Magazine. Headrick may possess a wholesome All-American look but in print she displays a versatility and a distinct high fashion vibe that will translate seamlessly onto the runways of Milan and Paris.

Represented by Marilyn Model Management, Headrick heads into the Spring/Summer 2013 collections as the most coveted girl on every casting director's list, having recently scored a major coup in the guise of a Fall/Winter 2012 Prada campaign lensed by model maker Steven Meisel. Headrick recalls the meeting with Prada's casting director Ashley Brokaw in an interview with wwd.com, "Well, I met Ashley, who casts Prada and my booker said that I got good feedback, but I didn't want to get my hopes up. Then I came into the agency one day and they sat me down and said, "You did OK on your castings, and we don't want you to be upset, but you're not going to be walking at New York Fashion Week this season." My heart sank. I literally had tears in my eyes. Then they said, "But there's a reason why - you got a Prada exclusive and you're going to Milan!" I freaked out!" With key industry figures backing Headrick, there is no doubt that the 178 cm statuesque beauty with razor sharp cheekbones and a petulant pout, will be turning more heads at the upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 shows.
