Watch this face: Sam Rollinson
I’ve always followed Balenciaga exclusives closely. I remember picking out Aymeline Valade when she first popped up walking for the French house and writing about her breakthrough. Last season British model Sam Rollinson scored the ultimate exclusive by closing the Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2013 show, that was the only show she ever walked the entire season (and also coincidentally, Nicolas Ghesquiere last ever look presented for the brand). She subsequently got casted in the Balenciaga campaign shot by Steven Meisel as well as editorial appearances in Vogue UK and Harper’s BAZAAR US. With British models like Cara Delevingne making waves in the scene now, Sam seems to have arrived just at the right time. So far she’s already walked Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, Reed Krakoff (opened) and Victoria Beckham, maybe in Europe they will fall for her unique razor sharp cheek bones and freckles too.
