Meet the New Girl: Emily Baker’s Parents Tagged Along During Fashion Week


With razor-sharp cheekbones and a swagger that evokes the glory years of the nineties supermodel, 17-year-old Emily Baker is poised to become this year's most impressive new face. Courted by influential casting directors Russell Marsh and Ashley Brokaw, the New Zealand native debuted on the fall 2011 catwalks for Prada, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Miu Miu, and Dries Van Noten. Represented by DNA Model Management, Baker's already made an impact on the editorial world, too, with her first spread in this month's Chinese Vogue, shot by Daniel Jackson.
