When you look at as many models as we do, they have the tendency to blend together (was it Alison Nix or Rachel Alexander at the Rag & Bone show?). But this month in our office, one particular girl stood outÂ--Hilary Rhoda. WeÂ're not the only people loving her black-haired, blue-eyed, slightly Brooke Shieldsesque look. The New York PostÂ's Page Six gave Rhoda a shout-out yesterday as the model theyÂ'd most like to see on the catwalk. She was also recently named the new face of Estee Lauder (look for her campaign in August), quite the coup for the Chevy Chase, MD native who made her runway debut in BalenciagaÂ's Spring 2006 show.
Fresh off of a series of important Spring 2007 couture shows (including Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Lacroix, Givenchy, Dior, and Valentino), RhodaÂ's been spotted walking for Luella and Mathew Williamson so far during New YorkÂ's Fall 2007 Fashion Week. We look forward to watching this all-American beauty further distinguish herself from the pack.
