Prada is renowned for its casting, both on the runway and in ad campaigns, and an appearance in either a show or campaign can help launch a new girl’s career. So, in addition to anticipating what innovative new creations Miuccia Prada will send down the runway each season, forum members eagerly wait to see which newly discovered quirkily beautiful faces will be modeling said creations. Another part of Prada’s model casting appeal is that they sign some of their girls to exclusive deals; making the Prada runway either the first or only runway they can walk down in Milan (or anywhere in the world if the model is signed to a worldwide exclusive). Here are the girls Prada seems to be getting exclusive with for Spring 2013.
This 15-year-old model from the Netherlands made her impressive runway debut with a worldwide exclusive opening Prada’s Spring 2013 show.
“She’s amazing… possibly the next big thing!” 82ndfrag predicted.
Maja was the second girl out on the Prada runway.
“I think she was the most interesting girl among the exclusives in Prada. I can definitely see her in major things,” subway 123 commented.
Isabelle was signed to a worldwide exclusive with Prada, making it the only show she’ll walk for Spring 2013.
“How amazing for her!!!!” Mea Culpa posted of this young Canadian newcomer’s Prada exclusive.
Lisa’s distinct look made her a natural choice for a Prada exclusive.
“All of her features are so exceptional,” LeRouquin commented. “Aside from the obvious (her mouth and lips) her eyes are absolutely incredible.”
“Considering the collection, I think she should've opened,” Faith Akiyama commented about this Milan exclusive who we should be seeing more of in Paris.
This exotic beauty has had a good fashion month so far. She closed the show at Marc by Marc Jacobs in New York and made her Milan debut as a Prada exclusive. The Prada walk was followed by appearances at Fendi, Emilio Pucci, Giorgio Armani, and Missoni.
“This girl is soooo beautiful and rare!!” vivi27 exclaimed. “She's the first Asian-European I’ve see who actually looks European! Those green eyes and brown hair mixed with her Asian facial features are divine.”
Vanessa, who appeared in the Prada ad campaign last season, followed up an exclusive appearance at Giles in London with a Prada exclusive for the second season in a row.
“I hope she's only a Milan exclusive because I've been dying to see more of her on the runway,” GivenchyHomme posted. “Her walk is one of the best I've seen in a while.”
