Top Ten Newcomers FW16 - Selena Forrest

Selena Forrest's Spring/Summer 2016 debut at Proenza Schouler backed up by a lucrative spot in the label's campaign lensed by Zoe Ghertner placed the sixteen newcomer at the top of every casting director's must see list heading into the Fall/Winter 2016 season. Born in Lafayette, Louisiana, Forrest was initially scouted in Long Beach California where she grew up. Represented by Next Models, Forrest's mixed Norwegian, Filipino, and African and Native American heritage lend her an exotic hard to place looks that is the beauty ideal of the future. With a compelling blend of in your face smouldering beauty and tomboy cool Forrest's look is impossible to pigeonhole which is a good thing judging by her F/W 16 show list which includes turns on the runway at Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, Victoria Beckham, Rag & Bone, Public School, Coach, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, Boss, Fendi, Versace, Sportmax, Marni, Dries Van Noten, and Loewe. Next Models agent May Au sums up Forrest's irresitable appeal, "Selena's a real tomboy. She likes to ride dirt bikes and the outdoors. Her personality is as diverse as her background."
