8 Models Who Are Changing the Face of Fashion


Fashion is becoming a cultural beacon of diversity, in part with the rising popularity of the eight style stars below. From a striking brand ambassador with vitiligo to a size 14 beauty, these models are changing fashion, and it’s certainly for the better.


1. Winnie Harlow

The world first met Harlow when she was a contestant on the 21st cycle of “America’s Next Top Model” and we’ve since gotten to know her better as the brand ambassador for Desigual. Diagnosed with vitiligo at four, the Canadian-born Harlow now splits her time between modeling and public speaking.

2. Myla Dalbesio

Crowned Miss Wisconsin Teen in 2004, Dalbasio’s ascent to the upper-echelons of modeling wasn’t without its challenges. She was not role model for some agencies. Though, she’s now represented by Ford and Next with campaigns for Calvin Klein and Vogue India to her credit.

3. Molly Constable

Constable was discovered on Instagram. Following her breakout Tom Ford spread in CR Fashion Book, she’s gone on to model for ASOS, Brooklyn Fox Lingerie, and more.

4. Ruth Bell

Burberry. Gucci. Versace. Saint Laurent. These are just a few of the runways Bell has graced, and she’s buzzed them all. Originally cut for McQueen campaign, the style has become Bell’s signature, differentiating her from other models and making her very in-demand.

5. Jade Willoughby

Born in Ontario, signed with Wilhelmina back in 2014 and has been featured in Vogue India and a Marc Bouwer campaign. Outside of modeling, she’s committed to the economic development of her Native Whitesands community.

6. Lineisy Montero

Short, natural hair has always been a rarity on the runway, but its prevalence is steadily increasing, thanks in part to Montero. Arguably the busiest model in Paris, Milan, London, and New York over the past few seasons, she’s walked in Dior, Prada, and Jason Wu, and snagged a Teen Vogue cover.

7. Sydney Ness

The face of plus lines for Wet Seal, Charlotte Russe, and Forever 21, Ness grew up in Wisconsin and is currently based in L.A with an Instagram account that has nearly 32K followers.

8. Andreja Pejic

Formerly worked as an unisex model, Pejic has quite the impressive fashion resume. She’s walked for DKNY, Jean Paul Gautier, and Jeremy Scott, and is currently the face of Reformation’s Holiday 2016 campaign.
