Meet Magdalena, our current obsession and the next major sensation (in our opinion anyway). Maybe it¬'s the shape of her eyes or her chameleon-like qualities on film, but there¬'s something about her that¬'s both familiar and haunting. Perhaps it¬'s because she¬'s reminiscent of a young, pillow-cheeked version of Kate Moss?
The future looks bright for this lovely, 19-year-old Polish model, as she made a big impression during the Fall 07 shows. She walked for many of the most important designers (Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Valentino, Versace, Viktor & Rolf, Pucci, Ralph Lauren, Behnaz, and Zac Posen), and closed the Loewe show. She¬'s also turning up in the right places print-wise as well. Magdalena¬'s on the cover of this month¬'s Flair (the amazing French magazine) and the most recent issue of V Magazine called her one of the top 10 models for the fall season. Coupled with recent turns in the pages of Bazaar, W, as well as Italian, French, Chinese, and, most recently, German Vogue, it¬'s clear that Magda¬'s on the important radars.
Conceivably the impetus for Magdalena¬'s ascent is her above-mentioned versatility. How else could one explain two of her upcoming ( and diverse) fall campaigns? Whatever the reason, we¬'re looking forward to seeing her advertorial work with Ralph Lauren and Dior Lingerie and her face on newsstands everywhere.
