Meet 17 year old Ataui Deng....face look familiar? That's because she shares her gene pool with aunty and supermodel Alek Wek. After moving to New York from her home town of Texas, only weeks before New York Fashion Week kicked off, she was immediately snapped up by Trump Model management ( the agency that boasts models Hye Park and Polina Kouklina on their books). And after walking in just two shows (Proenza Schouler and Zac Posen in September) she caught the eye of photographic god Steven Meisel - credited for sprinkling his stardust over Coco Rochas, Jessica Stam and Gemma Ward to name but a few. So you heard it here first: watch this face!
