Just look at that face. Is it any surprise that Chrishell Stubbs is one to watch? Hailing from Turks and Caicos, the 18-year-old model debuted strong in 2007 with a spread in Teen Vogue and print ads for Levi's. She was a runaway hit at the fall 2010 New York shows, strutting for Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang, Lacoste, and 3.1 Phillip Lim; in Paris, she walked selectively for Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier. When castings started for fall campaigns, Stubbs was booked to replace Erin Wasson as one of the faces of Pinko, and photographer Josh Olins requested Stubbs for Benetton's fall campaign.

What's been your most memorable experience thus far in modeling? The phone call I got saying I was going to get to go to Europe for Fashion Week. This past winter, it was the last day of New York Fashion Week and I had just left the Ralph Lauren show. I was walking home, and then after the call, realized I had six hours to get ready to leave.
Tell us a little about your childhood.
I'm really lucky. I grew up in the Turks and Caicos, always in the water at the beach; barefoot and bikinis were my way of life, and a house full of pets.
How would you describe your style?
Pretty simple most of the time: jean shorts and a tank, but I usually go crazy with my jewelry. I love it! Bracelets necklace, rings — the more the better.
What's the one thing you couldn't live without? And why?
Sunshine. It makes everything better.
When you have a day off, what do you do?
Clean my place and shop for groceries.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Five years from now, I hope to have a successful career and possibly be in school, studying to become a veterinarian.
