Top Ten Newcomers S/S 2013 - Tilda Lindstam

Swedish model Tilda Lindstam hardly classifies as a newcomer given that she was scouted by IMG Models at the age of eleven whilst at school, and has been modelling on-and-off since 2008. Following careful development by her mother agency Stockholmsgruppen in Sweden, Lindstam was unleashed onto the international runway circuit debuting at the New York Fall/Winter 2010 collections. Lindstam relocated to New York in mid-2010 and her modelling career has been steadily gaining speed. Lindstam's options kicked into overdrive during the Spring/Summer 2012 season when she was cast in the Givenchy show, holding her own alongside seasoned veterans Gisele Bundchen, Karolina Kurkova and Liya Kebede. Fast-forward a year later to the Spring/Summer 2013 collections and Lindstam has emerged not only as one of the the most coveted newcomers for the season but also as the most in demand, having racked up a show tally of 68 shows, the maximum for any model for Spring/Summer 2013. Lindstam's show list reads like a who's who of the fashion elite; Chanel, Altuzarra, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Versace, Givenchy, Miu Miu, Valentino and so forth.

The 179 cm brown-haired, hazel-eyed Boras native has become known as much for her natural beauty as for her individual sense of style which she describes to stylecaster.com as "a grandma's couch/punk/a bit of everything kind of style." Lindstam's individual street style and her approachable beauty have made her a firm favourite amongst fashion and model bloggers. I ran into Lindstam as she  exited the Peter Som show in New York and immediately noticed her effortlessly cool Scandinavian aesthetic. Lindstam was extremely sweet and graciously posed for Inoubliable Model Army holding one of my cards. Having met Lindstam in person, I can understand why the fashion elite have gone gaga for her. Lindstam is a truly versatile beauty with the most incredibly radiant skin, a laid back personality and ever so slightly off-kilter features such as eyes which can appear cross-eyed at times and an endearing subtle over bite. It is the sum of all of these qualities which have enabled Lindstam to emerge as a clear front runner for editorial and campaign options in the season ahead.
