Anna Ewers

Discovered by Alexander Wang, Anna Ewers serves as a muse to the designer and the rest of the world. The Brigitte Bardot look-a-like is known for her beautiful bone structure and notable gap in her teeth. In 2013, her first year on the runway, she walked an impressive 37 shows for brands like Celine, Prada, and Balenciaga. But runway isn't her only strength - between 2013 and 2015, she appeared on the cover of various Vogue magazines 9 times - a great feat for any model.

Lara Stone

Discovered at a Paris Metro station but born and raised in The Netherlands, Lara Stone has quickly risen to fame. She is recognized for the unique, yet adored gap in her front teeth, and her unusual runway walk, which can be attributed to the fact that her feet are too small for most runway shoes. She regularly appears in Tom Ford campaigns, and was once exclusive to Prada during New York Fashion Week.

Karlie Kloss

Supermodel and one-time Victoria's Secret Angel Karlie Kloss is a force to be reckoned with. When not hitting the runway for the likes of Balmain, Diane von Furstenberg, and Calvin Klein, Kloss stays busy. Not only is she best friends with singer Taylor Swift, Kloss is an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and an overall hard worker. This summer she will be attending NYU to begin working towards a Bachelor's degree while maintaining her vegan cookie business and kicking off a coding camp for high-school aged girls. We can't wait to see what she'll come up with next.
