    very beautiful…she looks a little bit like emily blunt?

  • buci

    …I am speachless….she is gorgeous …very interesting features…kinda dreamy..

  • So true reminds me of emily blunt too! ^^ Pretty girl!

  • BBC


    She’s the new Lily Donaldson.

  • She is a beautiful sweet girl, commercial modelling seems suitable. Need to see more test shoots, since the last two are not so appealing.

  • love her look; different & beautiful.

  • Yasmin

    Amazing! Very different and interesting!
    Great face, especially from the side… her haircolor is beautiful, it’s smth between brown & black with some redish/purpleish facettes…

  • lisa T

    get out of the biz.
    it’s filled with a bunch of freaks of nature.
    study to be a doctor, musician, something.
    modeling will wreck your life.

  • Ali

    Model version of Emily Blunt

    Very beautiful

  • such a beautiful profile (love her lips!)

  • HH

    Her best feature is her lips! Though you gotta cut on the nights partying girl!You look a little tired.

  • Rafael

    She’s very beautiful, but her lips annoy me, though.

  • I really like her FACE….

  • yes!

  • Jana

    Who’s Matt?

  • Sasha

    She’s a luminary doll, simply divine…

    Please be mindful that the photos don’t do her justice: this is due to the lack of natural light, and slight shining affect on her skin.

    I can easily envisage her wrapped up in some Edwardian dress; likewise, I can see her in a Marc Jacobs edgy, street vibe look.


    The lips, the lips, the lips….yummy….

  • kaitlin

  • BBC

    She lived outside of London and was still at school then. Moved to London in the summer and started modelling full time 8 months ago.

  • VIola

    Took my breath away! I can also see the Emily Blunt resemblance. I have a feeling that she will have a long and great career.

  • She is definitely one to watch – check out’s interview with her:

  • daisy

    she has been a model for about 4 years now, working commercially with IMG then she moved to Union as things were not working at IMG! I worked with her at IMG so i would know…never the less its wonderful she is having her moment
    love her!

  • She’s such an ethereal beauty!

    Had the oppertunity to test with her a year or two ago…she was a natural. I think Jody knew he was onto something here! =]
