California Dreaming - Ally Ertel

All-American Cali girl Ally Ertel has been on IMA's radar since we met at castings for Natalie Joos during the Spring/Summer 2014 season. Ertel's laid-back demeanour, unembellished beauty, and sun-kissed glow stood out amongst the throngs of perfectly preened models in attendance. Fast-forward 18 months and Ertel's natural good looks and super chilled vibes have suddenly come into vogue with the twenty-five year old popping up as an exclusive at Céline during the Fall/Winter 2015 collections. Success has certainly not been overnight for Ertel who has been modelling since 2008 however there appears to be a groundswell of industry support and interest with appearances at Calvin Klein's Fall 2015 presentation and a coveted spot at Louis Vuitton's Cruise 2016 show in Palm Springs. Ertel's recent editorial turn in British Vogue's April 2015 issue lensed by photographer Zoe Ghertner has kicked things into overdrive. The 12 page only girl story features Ertel in full bloom radiating positive energy and a healthy glow that is infectious and a welcome respite from the oft overly photo-shopped and hyper-sexualisted imagery that dominate the fashion landscape. Ertel's natural beauty, unruly blonde locks, and athletic physique will be gaining maximum exposure in the season ahead with the industry veteran returning recently from Paris where she has just signed with Major Model Management.
