After a brief hiatus, we’re back with the vital Marte Mei van Haaster, whose post-runway record clearly and distinctly puts her in the SS12 winner’s circle. After a show season that featured a Prada exclusive followed by a smash Paris season highlighted by stints for Balenciaga, Chanel, Celine, Givenchy, Valentino, Vuitton, YSL and Miu Miu, Marte has been most requested in the editorial ranks. Watch for the evidence in the next few months.

  1. She looks strong and one of a kind.
    For me she’s really Balenciaga. I hope she snags the campaign with Mackanzie Drazan and another cool new girl. That would be a dream.

  2. Agreed Anlabe, Marte is so incredible, total confidence, intelligence, presence and poise, which is super sexy, added to her amazing look- that is super hot.

  3. Marte has shown an amazing ability to blend in with the requested style, atmosphere or character of the brand she’s presenting. Compare the bold opening at Acne to the modesty at Rykiel’s; the fairy Valentino to the sharp Balenciaga; the angelic presence at Chanel to the cool chic closing Celine.
    Will she keep this chameleontic ability – commercially very effective – or will she evolve into a recognized icon?

  4. A model I pretty liked (and generally like); maybe not exactly blooming with uniqueness, but certainly a solid, reliable and never disappointing option. We’ll see, but so far, “tres bien” imo.
