Top Ten Newcomers FW16 - Yasmin Wijnaldum

Discovered at the Elite Model Look Netherlands finals in 2014, newcomer Yasmin Wijnaldum has galvanised industry attention within in a relatively short period with a stunning debut at Valentino Couture Fall/Winter 2015 and an exclusive turn on the runway at Prada's Spring/Summer 2016 show. The 178 cm tall seventeen year old heads into the Fall/Winter 2016 season as the most coveted new face courtesy of a Prada campaign berth lensed by Steven Meisel alongside industry luminaries Natalia Vodianova and Sasha Pivovarova. As the Milan F/W 2016 shows draw to a close, Wijnaldum's mixed bi-racial Dutch and Surinamese beauty have become the embodiment of the aesthetic casting directors and designers have on their radar for the season ahead. The gazelle-like beauty's caramel complexion and doe eyed expression have been ubiquitous throughout a staggering twenty-nine show appearances. Wijanladum's show list includes key slots at Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham, Proenza Schouler, Calvin Klein, J.W. Anderson, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Fendi, and Versace heralding the arrival of a bonafide star in the making.
