Model of the Mo­ment...

Olympia Camp­bel

Real Style - - Fashion News -

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.
