Style.com's Top Ten Models of Fall:
Quote:
Amanda Laine: The 16-year-old Toronto native had never considered a career on the runways before entering (and winning) the Supreme/V magazine model contest last year. After walking Prada, opening Miu Miu, and closing Louis Vuitton, she's poised to be the next big thing.

How to Win Over Alexander Wang


From NY Mag:


Some designers are known for playing favorites with models. Carmen Kass basically lives on the Michael Kors runway. Natasha Poly’s a go-to for Gucci. Luckily for up-and-coming models, there are also designers like Alexander Wang, who gives the newbies a real shot. He said he likes how rising novices give the show “a fresh feeling.” Fresh, indeed: He was the first designer to pick up Amanda Laine, who went on to huge bookings all over Paris. So, how can you earn a spot on his September runway? “It’s the attitude and feeling you get from a girl when she walks in. If she’s confident and has an awesome stomp, we’ll prob book her,” Wang said. So, girls, ditch your wallflower ways and work on your walk. You’ve got all summer. —Kendall Herbst

Was he really the first designer to pick her?

I just realized who she looks like - the daughter in The Riches.
This makes me not dislike her as much, as I love that show.

The cutest video ever, and it just so happens to feature Amanda. I love how sweet she is, but also that she knows just how major her season was, and appears grateful for it.

She seems so approachable and fun in that video! I also love how grateful she seems about opening and closing some of the biggest shows. She's so energetic and radiant, I can't wait to see more of her.

Thank you, youarearockstar!

her mature look is really working for the current situation in the industry. since most of the brands are shifting towards the more sophisticated end of the fashion to lure the older customers with money, mature looking models are just what the industry needs

she looks like the modern day Anne Boleyn hehe

Ok I'm still working out the kinks in my new scanner (and so far I'm unimpressed with the quality), but I figured I would at least scan Amanda's comp card, as it contain a new batch of polaroids!
