Model of the Moment...
Oncerecognized as the younger sister of British model Edie Campbell, and also granddaughter of 1950s model Joan Hicks, 20-year-old Olympia Campbell is now ruling the runway in her own right. With her angular visage, sharp cheekbones and haunting eyes, this upand-coming catwalk star certainly has an air of mystery all her own, befitting the fall shows.
For Fall 2016, golden-haired Campbell walked the catwalk for Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. Off the catwalk but always in the spotlight, she has also starred in Lanvin and Rag & Bone ad campaigns and recently graced the cover of Vogue Italia with her sister.
Despite her haute couture presence, Campbell appears to be the quintessential rebel next door. The London-based enfant terrible is known for her liberal attitude toward sexuality and strong feminist values, such as body positivity. In an interview with Vice, she described juggling her modelling career with her interest in studying Human Sciences at university. “It’s nice to be part of a world which is so alien to your friends but then also have something else which keeps you grounded and reminds you that rejection (in modelling) is not the end of the world,” she said.
While she may have a wild streak, it’s clear that this levelheaded stunner possesses brains as well as beauty. We’ll be keeping an eye out for Campbell as she storms the runways.
