Wolf Whistle - Emma Champtaloup

During the Fall/Winter 2014 season, IMA bore witness to an astounding number of newcomers, second season wonders, and established faces at castings for New York Fashion Week. Standing out amongst the sea of pretty faces was twenty-five year old New Zealander Emma Champtaloup. In the midst of her first full show season after a stunning debut at the Spring/Summer 2014 collections where she appeared exclusively at Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Prada, and Givenchy, Champtaloup was one of the most buzzed about newcomers of the season. IMA met the softly spoken Auckland native at the castings for Oscar de la Renta and was immediately enchanted by her gentle, soulful beauty and kind spirited nature. Signed by DNA Models in New York, Champtaloup stands at an imposing 181 cm with broad shoulders, a perfectly ovular face, hazel brown eyes, and a shoulder grazing bob. Currently studying Esoteric Medicine and Healing, a therapy which focuses on ancient Chinese medicine and the relationship between the mind and body, Champtaloup is clearly in sync with hers citing "Intuition" as her best feature. This month Champtaloup stars in a divine bathing suit spread shot by Collier Schorr and accompanied by a profile interview for The Gentlewoman. Champtaloup poses in modest swimwear styled by Alastair McKimm from the Spring/Summer 2014 collections of Rag & Bone, Calvin Klein, Hermés, Donna Karan, and Jason Wu. Chamtpaloup combines a subtle sensuality, powerful inquisitive gaze, and relaxed poses remaining perfectly in sync with the Gentlewoman's understated beauty aesthetic.
