The fashion world’s love for celebrities is showing no sign of waning for 2010. Madonna may have snapped up the lastest Dolce & Gabbana S/S '10 campaign, whilst Lily Allen continues as the face of Chanel and Emma Watson at Burberry for the season ahead – but they are not alone when it comes to stealing the top spots and being crowned with the ultimate title as a designer’s muse. Here are the top three models were predicting will make it big in 2010!
Jamie Bochert is better known as the fiancé of actor Michael Pitts (who we will all recognise from Dawson's Creek back in the day when he stole Michelle Williams' heart - now that takes us back!) but who now more importantly stars in Yves Saint Laurent’s new erotic short film (watch it here). And whilst Jamie has been modelling since 2002 - 2010 looks to be her year! Not only did she walk for Proenza Schouler, Rodarte and Marc Jacobs in their S/S '10 shows back in September – 3 of the hottest labels on our radar right now – but she was also the cover girl for the all important September issue of Italian Vogue this year. So we weren’t too surprised to see that she is the new face of Lanvin and Marc Jacobs!
The Lithuanian model shot to fame only last month after having walked for Prada, Alberta Ferretti, Missoni and Moschino earlier this year and then being named as the new face of Prada for S/S '10. Now, experience may not be her forte but boy has she racked up an impressive cv in short space of time. And what we do know is that when Miuccia Prada sits up and takes notice – the fashion world does too! Roll on 2010 when we expect Rasa to follow in the foot-steps of her fellow Eastern European counterparts Daria Werbowy and Natalia Vodianova as she rises to the top!
Miranda Kerr is usually known for strutting her stuff as an Angel on the Victoria's Secret runway. But this year the Australian model not only raised her game in the style stakes working the most stylish travel wardrobe but also made an unexpected appearance as she walked in the Balenciaga 2010 show. And whilst we may not have an explanation to why she only did one show and what the year ahead holds for her, we’re sure her marriage to her beau Orlando Bloom (sigh!) won’t be the only highlight for her in 2010!
