Mona Johannesson (December 2004 - March 2010)

SHE'S THE ONE
IF ever a girl was destined to be "the next Kate Moss", Mona must be she. The Swedish 17-year-old was spotted by an IMG scout while at a horse trials event in Gothenburg three years ago and since then has modelled only part time - including one shoot for Swedish magazine Fjords in which she recreated some of Kate's most famous poses - while she finished school. Having arrived in London just over two weeks ago to launch herself onto the catwalk scene, she quickly racked up an impressive selection of new friends including Vogue's fashion director, Lucinda Chambers, stylist Karl Templer and photographers Patrick Demarchelier, Glen Luchford and Lauire Bartley. At only 5'7'', Mona is a little shorter than many of her catwalking contemporaries (she wears heels every day without fail), but we can expect major campaigns to come rolling in anytime now. And everybody's talking about her. "Depending on her mood, she's like Kate Moss, Bridget Hall or Aurelie Claudel," said one model expert. "The fashion world is looking for really fresh, beautiful girls at the moment - Brooke Shields-types - and Mona is really it." Look out for her in Vogue's March issue and the April issue of Italian Vogue. (December 8 2004, AM)

i get really sick of "the next Kate Moss", "the next Elle MacPherson", the next gisele, naomi, claudia, cindy...whatever...find someone unique and original...maybe that's why Gemma found success caz she looked different (and a bit wierd)...

she's gorgeous, we'll jus have to see how diverse she is...

If it was me, I would rather have wanted to make a carrier based
on myself than to constantly be compared to someone else.

I inwardly groaned when I saw this on the website, they do make a habit of this sort of thing there. And then we hardly ever hear of the person again...She does look a bit like Kate though.

i hate the comparisons, but with her, it's going to be inevitable, especially considering her height...

Yes she's very pretty but I just have to roll my eyes at her becoming the next Kate Moss.

I actually saw this just this morning on the Vogue UK site... I'm going to have to agree with the others here, it's been done too many times to be believable anymore.
