Natasha Poly Is Milan’s Top Model

Milan came out swinging with the big guns. Megawatt runway stars Mariacarla Boscono, Elise Crombez, and Angela Lindvall hit the catwalks for Moschino, Prada, and Versace, respectively. Refreshing considering the season, though slightly more diverse, continues to be dominated by newbies. But Milan was still a great launching pad for rising stars as well. At Fendi's spring collection, we expected the two-year face of the label Raquel Zimmermann to do the honors of opening, but instead German teen Toni Garrn snatched that spot. With Garrn's Calvin exclusive now over, it seems Karl has developed a liking for her clean, classic look (he also shot her for the October German Vogue issue). Meanwhile, Arlenis Sosa continues her meteoritic rise, opening for Bottega Veneta’s leather-loaded show. But overall in Milan, you just could not avoid the dominance of Natasha Poly and Lily Donaldson. Poly stomped down the runways opening for Gucci, Roberto Cavalli, and Versace, while Donaldson closed for all three. At MaxMara the duo switched places, with Donaldson opening and Poly closing. But Poly, nearly five years into her career, edged out the elegant Donaldson with the additional opening and closing slots at Dolce & Gabbana and Blumarine. And she somehow managed to make time to close the Moschino and Etro shows, too. Goodness gracious, Poly wins by a landslide.
