Back to Basics - Tess Hellfeuer

Each show season, Inoubliable Model Army faces the arduous task of selecting the newcomers who best represent the casting trends for the overall collections. Some of Inoubliable Model Army's picks are right on the money with newcomer lists compiled by the likes of models.com, Style Minutes, COACD, style.com, and so forth. However out of Inoubliable Model Army's Top 10 newcomer slots, I prefer to take a leap of faith in reserving one or two places for models who may not be the most obvious choice or whose aesthetic I firmly believe in. This season one of those coveted positions belongs to my fellow Berliner Tess Hellfeuer. Hellfeuer's classic yet versatile beauty found favour on the Fall/Winter 2013 runways of Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Hervé Leger, Emilio Pucci, Jil Sander, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel. Represented by mother agency Place Models and New York Model Management in New York, eighteen year old Hellfeuer has been modelling part-time for the past five years and displays a maturity that is a product of her professional and life experience. British Vogue taps into Hellfeuer's womanly allure for an editorial which showcases vintage looks styled by Francesca Burns and captured by photographer Karim Sadli. Sporting a bangin' blunt fringe, soul-searching baby blues, soft melodic features, and the most wonderfully expressive hand placement, Hellfeuer commands this editorial and all those who fall under her lilting gaze.
