Is This Model The Next Kate Moss?
Who can resist a good model Cinderella story? In 2007, the 5’9″ British boarding school student Jasmine Munting hopped on the tube and tried to avoid the stares of what she assumed was a creepy stranger. That intimidating person happened to be a Select Model Management Agent, and the rest is fashion ad campaign-making history. Munting, now 17, goes by the more model-y name of “Frida” (obvs!), and Vogue U.K. has named her a 2010 Model To Watch, an accolade that now supermodels Agy Deyn and Lily Donaldson once shared. And some industry insiders are predicting she’ll be the next Lily Cole (um, because she’s English as well?) or even skyrocket to Kate Moss-level stardom. We like her unique look and the fact that she’s still in school–apparently, she’s a really good student and has been on scholarship since the age of 11. Brains and beauty. [Daily Mail]
