Top Ten Newcomers S/S 2013 - Nastya Kusakina

In the lead up to the Spring/Summer 2013 shows in New York, Nastya Kusakina's name kept popping up as one of the key newcomers to look out for. I was meandering down around the meatpacking district one day when a heavenly creature with cascading golden blonde hair appeared out of nowhere like an apparition. I recognised Kusakina instantly and paused her for a moment to chat whilst handing her an Inoubliable Model Army card before she scuttled down the street en route to a casting. Kusakina as it turns out has confirmed her status as one of the most coveted new faces of the season with appearances in 37 shows during the Spring/Summer 2013 collections. From the outset, the 180cm Russian beauty has been marked for greatness by casting directors and designers alike, with key opening and or closing slots at Vera Wang, Prabal Gurung, Tibi, Cividini, Rue du Mail and Louis Vuitton. It's not often that I see a model in person and am floored by her beauty, but Kusakina did just that. Kusakina's combination of pale translucent skin, larger saucer-shaped blue eyes and ethereal beauty are reminiscent of the former Australian top model Gemma Ward. Represented by Women Model Management, Kusakina could well turn out to be Russia's next big modelling export.
