Meet British new face Xannie Cater.
Xannie, scouted at the London Olympics back in the summer of 2012, made her LFW catwalk debut in February 2013 and has since been building her portfolio. She has now finished her studies and is modelling full-time.
With a slight look of Sasha Luss and great personality we have high hopes for this British beauty!
