Stacey Eastman strikes again Pulse Mgmt's discovery Ali Stephens was born May 10, 1991 in Salt Lake City. She enjoyed a normal childhood far from the glamour of the fashion industry, competing as a cross-country runner in high school. But in 2007, everything changed: She was discovered while shopping with her family.
After signing with Elite, Ali stormed the fashion world, opening Prada's show in Milan in September 2007. Shows in Paris for Chanel, Dries Van Noten, Givenchy, and Louis Vuitton quickly followed.
In the wake of her big debut on the runways, Ali was immediately spotlighted as a rising star in countless publications, from Pop magazine toStyle.com to Vmagazine.com. And so began 2008, which could be called the Year of Ali, with Chloé, M Missoni, ck Calvin Klein, Prada Sport, and Gap scooping her up for their campaigns. Ali was booked for 46 shows that fall, including the exclusive opening position at Calvin Klein in New York. She also landed her first cover, the March issue of W Korea, photographed by David Byun. Editorials in VogueParis, shot by Patrick Demarchelier, and Vogue Italia, shot by David Sims, furthered her standing as an It girl. What solidified it? A cosmetics contract with Chanel.
For the Spring 2009 shows, Ali opened Peter Som in New York and closed Jonathan Saunders, Preen, and Sophia Kokosalaki. What more could be in store for her? Time will tell, but pay close attention because this girl is fast—she runs a 5:31 mile!
Hannah Holman Joins the VS Crew - Featured in Modelina.com
Around this time every year, our minds turn to one thing: the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! And the excitement for this year’s glittery event has already begun, since Adriana Lima decorated New York City with the $2 million Fantasy Bra just last week.
Since our brain is filled with wings, over the top lingerie outfits, and angels, it makes perfect sense to give into the VS addiction and flip through the latest catalogue, right?
While perusing the latest offerings and model poses, we spied none other than adorable Hannah Holman, dressed up in VS Pink gear! Interestingly, hers is not the only surprising model appearance in collegiate sweats and precious bright colors as of late. Remember back in June when we spotted Coco Rocha jumping alongside Behati Prinsloo and Chanel Iman?
Now the real question is: Does this mean Hannah could very possibly make an appearance on the 2010 Victoria’s Secret runway? She is 19, so her age wouldn’t be an issue…
