You know, I’ve been having some trouble tracking down where exactly in Canada rising model Danielle Knudson hails from — any help? — but what I have gathered is that she’s one smouldering blonde, as evidenced in her latest shoot for Guess’ Spring 2014 advertising campaign.
Shot at the beautiful Laguna Beach and overseen by creative director for Guess? Inc., Paul Marciano, and veteran Guess photographer Yu Tsai, the latest spread is a bona fide heat wave of sultry summertime stunners. Olivia Greenfield, Samantha Hoopes, Nicoleta Vaculov and Gui Fedrizzi all join 24-year-old Knudson as they pose in crisp white linens, neutral tones, lace and floral patterns.
In one photo Knudson models a polka-dot crop and white jeans, striking a very come-hither look that connotes memories of former Guess girl Kate Upton (the perfectly placed beauty spot helps matters). In another shot, Knudson shows off her tanned legs in a mini-dress and leather jacket, not exactly the best beach attire, but certainly hot enough to rival the blazing Cali sun.
Talking about her dream-come-true opportunity in booking a Guess gig, Knudson says, “Guess is a timeless and sexy fashion powerhouse that I have always admired growing up. It is so surreal to have the opportunity to work with Paul Marciano and Yu Tsai.”
With 2014 already starting out in a positive way for Danielle Knudson, we can only see her career flying high over the course of the year. Meanwhile, we’ll also continue to keep an eye on fellow Vancouver-based model Ashley Diana Morris, who was named the face of Guess Lingerie and Bikini in 2013. Wowzer! It goes without saying that it’s been a great few months for homegrown models in the Guess-o-sphere, so let’s all celebrate by breaking into a rendition of Dean Brody’s “Canadian Girls”…
