First thought as the unlikely model when she kick-started her career back in early 2011, our long-standing girl crush Charlotte Free has come a long way since first being spotted by IMG New York’s David Cunningham last year. Recognised instantly by her bright pink dip dyed hair, at 5ft 7in, despite being relatively short to be a catwalk model she has fast become one of the fashion world’s biggest obsessions. Walking for Roksanda Illincic and Vivienne Westwood and having fronted campaigns for Uniqlo, Topshop Makeup and Italian label Ermanno Scervino – we’re sure her latest accomplishment as the face of US label Forever 21 is the beginning of a bright future for the American starlet. Looking fresh and relaxed with her signature slightly messy tousled hair Charlotte looks like the cool girl/best friend we have always wanted.
