Abbey Lee/Next Models NY PH: Greg Kadel Numero Homme
Shortly before the Christmas break last year, we ran an epic video of that beautiful Aussie, Abbey Lee. She radiated such an easy charisma it was all but obvious that Abbey was set for a stand-out FW 08 NY show season. Well since Saturday, stand-out has evolved into stunning with Abbey sweeping up bookings from Marc by Marc to Rodarte to Oscar. It’s rare for a first season girl, previously unglimpsed on the European market to hit the scene with such force, but Abbey has now more than lived up to the advance billing and another Next star is freshly coined. Stay tuned.
