Maria Bradley Is Saturday’s Top Model


At Prabal Gurung's beautiful, Nobuyoshi Araki–inspired spring 2012 show, Danish top model Caroline Brasch Nielsen opened, while Swedish face Frida Gustavsson closed. Over at Altuzarra, Wilhelmina's new face Anna Zanovello booked the first look, while 16-year-old Daphne Groeneveld closed. Meanwhile, casting director Anita Bitton, who selects the models for Alexander Wang, rebooked last year's opener Aymeline Valade for the closing look. But our eyes were fixed on the mysterious newcomer Maria Bradley, who opened Wang's collection. Turns out, the Wichita-native is currently represented by a small, boutique modeling agency in Chicago called Factor. Now that's some hardcore, directional scouting done by Bitton. See these looks, and more, in the slideshow.
