Beware the Wolf - Manon Leloup

One model that Inoubliable Model Army believes has wonderful long term possibilities is the versatile French newcomer Manon Leloup. The 20 year old beauty from Croix, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, debuted during the Fall/Winter 2012 collections, but hit her stride professionally a season later when she was selected to walk for a smattering of blue chip Spring/Summer 2013 shows including Calvin Klein, Prada, Jil Sander, Balmian, Celine, Valentino, Miu Miu, and Alexander McQueen. Leloup's classic French beauty acts as a blank canvas that melds seamlessly with whatever vision designers, photographers, and fashion editors may have in mind. Leloup's elegant runway demeanour, white alabaster skin, and contrasting dark hair and heavy browed baby blues, make her a standout in any show line-up.

Perhaps though it is Leloup's engaging presence in front of the lens and her own interest in photography which has makes her such a compelling proposition. Leloup is often spotted during Fashion Week with her trusty analogue camera in tow documenting backstage proceedings. Speaking with WWD, Leloup reveals "For me, it seems natural to take pictures. I don't understand why more models don't take them during fashion week. I was having my first experience of fashion week and I was like, maybe this will never happen again so I want to capture everything I can." Leloup puts her innate understanding of the unique relationship between photographer and his/her subject, injecting life and displaying a delightful range of expressions in a shoot for American Harpers Bazaar lensed by Kacper Kasprzyk.
