Hilary Rhoda Is Saturday’s Top Model


Brazilians, Russians, and Dutchies, watch your back — it's an American model revival. New Jersey native Jacquelyn Jablonski opened for Lacoste, Nebraska native Samantha Gradoville closed for Altuzarra, and Hawaii native Keke Lindgard opened for Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti. Casting director Russell Marsh selected Washington state native Kendra Spears to close out Ferretti, after a brief hiatus from the runways. Philly babe Sessilee Lopez opened for Zac Posen's buzzed about Z Spoke, but it was Maryland native (MoCo represent!) Hilary Rhoda who wins last night's crown. Rhoda might best be known for her work for Estée Lauder, but we remember (and miss) the high-fashion Hilary — the times when she was booking Vogue covers and starring in blue-chip campaigns. Could this be a sign of Rhoda's long-awaited return to high fashion? Click ahead to see all the openers and closers from yesterday in our slideshow.
