And honestly there is not much I can tell you about this kid. Louis Mayhew is from Cambridge, Massachusetts and got discovered while he was getting pizza (and I don’t know what’s better: getting pizza or getting discovered!). His ethnicity is mixed (Native American, African American, Scottish, French) and of course his look is very unique otherwise he wouldn’t be modeling, no?! But besides all that info there is a lot of potential and for whatever reason I can def see him working with Givenchy (so Ricardo if you are reading this it’s not too late…).
The is not one week where this is not happening. I have a new supermodel crush and this time it’s 19 year old Dutch fashion model of Moroccan and Egyptian descent Imaan Hammam.
Imaan was discovered in Amsterdam’s Central Station by an agent from CODE Management in 2010 and just a couple of years later she she was given the honor to open a Givenchy show as an exclusive. Anna Wintour has been a true support of Hammam and mentioned the model in her editor’s letter the first time she appeared in the magazine. She also appeared on the September cover of American Vogue, a cover which very few models, much less new faces, are able to secure. Hammam has walked for all the big names, like Prada, Jean Paul Gaultier, Balenciaga, Versace, Fendi, Proenza Schouler and Dior.
