Why Lily Stewart Is a Model You Need to Know in 2016

Lily Stewart's first appearance in Vogue was a little over 10 years ago, but she was just 7 years old then, cast by a family friend opposite Gemma Ward in a shoot by Mario Testino. According to W, the 18-year-old model has been in the spotlight quite a bit more these days, however, having walked two Louis Vuitton shows this year and covering the October issue of Vogue Italia

Rather than cultivating a social media following (though she does, of course, have Instagram) she's actively dedicated to practicing the cello, developing her interest in fine art (she cites German expressionist painter Egon Schiele as an influence), and getting inspired by fashion design greats like Halston and Nicolas Ghesquière, among others. 

With such amazing accomplishments under her belt, she's definitely a face to look out for as we move into the new year.
