Treasure Island - Malaika Firth

IMA's favourite newcomer Malaika Firth continues her rapid ascent through industry ranks with an only-girl editorial in Vogue Japan's July 2014 issue. Photographer Emma Summerton trains her lens on the Kenya born British transport as she plays shipwrecked seafarer on a deserted island paradise. "The Fiesta of Solitude" features the New York Model Management-repped supernova in shabby chic ensembles styled by Fashion Editor Giovanna Battaglia from the Fall/Winter 2014 collections of Valentino, Donna Karan, Dolce & Gabbana, Dries Van Noten, and Prada. Firth's spectacular features and doe-eyed expression are highlighted by smudgy kohl eye make-up and flyaway hair courtesy of hairstylist Neil Moodie and make-up artist Mathias van Hooff. Discovered by Premier Model Management at an open call, Firth's modelling trajectory indicates all the makings of a true supermodel contender. Since her stunning debut at Prada's Resort 2014 show, Firth has left no stone unturned notching up an impressive resumé with blue chip editorial appearances for Interview, CR Fashion Book, i-D, W, and the British, French, Italian, American, and Japanese editions of Vogue. Dispelling the notion that colour doesn't sell, Firth's modern bi-racial beauty has featured prominently in consecutive Prada campaigns lensed by Steven Meisel, and more recently in Spring/Summer 2014 campaign slots for Valentino, Burberry Prorsum, and Marc Jacobs Fragrance. Firth's riveting runway appearances at the Chanel and Louis Vuitton Cruise Shows and a staggering 49 show bookings at the Fall/Winter 2014 collections are no doubt the precursor to a stellar Fall/Winter 2014 campaign and editorial season.
