Free Spirit - Rosie Tapner

The past Spring/Summer 2014 show season bore witness to a landslide of opportunities for newcomers to shine with casting directors shying away from the established model brigade to showcase a stunning diversity of new modelling talent. The next generation of rising stars buck any pre-set casting trends with diversity in ethnicity, age, and height being embraced by the powers that be. Seventeen year old British model Rosie Tapner may be relatively short by conventional model standards measuring in at 174 cm, however this has not deterred fashion publications including V Magazine, CR Fashion Book, W, Muse, Russh, and American Harper's Bazaar from featuring her within their editorial pages. Tapner makes a sterling editorial appearance in the January 2014 issue of British Vogue captured by photographer Boo George for an on location shoot at the Ephrussi de Rothschild Villa and Gardens on the Cote D'Azur. Tapner is the incarnation of a modern European heiress as she strolls the villa's grounds and takes in the picturesque setting while on horse back. Tapner initially rose to prominence via Balenciaga's Spring/Summer 2012 campaign lensed by Steven Meisel without so much as having set foot on an international runway. Tapner has since walked selectively for blue chip clients including Balenciaga, Burberry Prosum, Chloé, Top Shop Unique, and Giles. British Vogue has taken a particular shine to Tapner's delicate peaches and cream complexion and beautiful melancholic doe-eyed expression, featuring the Society NY-repped newcomer in a smattering of editorials throughout 2013.
