Female models at the menswear shows have quickly become something of a tradition, and the men’s shows wouldn’t be complete without a few well-placed supermodels popping up. Yes, that was Natasha Poly strutting her stuff inBalmain, and Natalia Vodianova rocked the runway at Givenchy, but those high-profile stars weren’t the only women to take to the runway during the men’s collections. Labels like Prada, Public School, and Kenzo used the men’s shows to introduce the world to a few new beauties. From brand-new faces making their runway debut to buzzed about faces fresh from the women’s Resort season, get to know five of the most interesting girls to walk with the boys.
Prada Spring 2017 Menswear; Yoon Young Bae
Yoon Young Bae
As owner of both the most memorable name and one of the cutest faces to enter modeling in a good long while, Yoon Young Bae is an exciting new find. Hailing from Korea, where she’s already graced Seoul Fashion Week and appeared in the pages of Korean Vogue, Bae hit the international market with her debut at Prada. Selected by casting director Ashley Brokaw to walk alongside stars like Mica Arganaraz and Natalie Westling, Bae is now sitting very pretty when it comes to the upcoming womenswear season.
Prada Spring 2017 Menswear; Najiyah Imani
When Prada is your first job, you’re off to a great start—and Najiyah Imani made the most of her catwalk debut. With her elegant presence on the runway and her dramatic features, it would be easy to imagine that Imani was discovered in some glamorous locale, but the down-to-earth beauty actually calls New Jersey home.
Givenchy Spring 2017 Menswear; Faretta
The first time Faretta caught our eye was during Givenchy’s Fall show, her catwalk debut. In the months since, the Croatian beauty has become a full-fledged member of the Givenchy gang, continuing her exclusive by starring in the brand’s lookbooks and resurfacing on the menswear catwalk with some of the world’s biggest models. So far she’s yet to walk for a non-Tisci fashion show, but we’re betting that won’t be for long.
Public School Spring 2017; Lily Lightbourn
A Bermudian babe with crossover appeal, Lily Lightbourn has found success both in the pageant world—she was Miss Bermuda back in 2014—and in high fashion, working with Vivienne Westwood and Cédric Charlier. The men’s shows saw Lightbourn taking to the runway for Public School, working a gorgeous short ’fro, and looking like a pro.
Kenzo Spring 2017 Menswear; Kim Buck
A German beauty scouted on the streets of Düsseldorf, Kim Buck has been quietly making a name for herself with select appearances at top-tier shows. Debuting atCéline back in fall before turning up at Christopher Kane during Resort, Buck was already a rising star by the time she set foot on Kenzo’s menswear catwalk. Almost certain to make another exciting appearance during couture, fantasy fan Buck is likely to be found spending her off days in between catching up with one of her favorite shows, Game of Thrones.
