the 'it' girls of 2014

If you’ve watched the comedy-drama film, ‘Devil Wears Prada’ adapted from the popular book of the same name by Lauren Weisberger, you might think you withhold great prescience when it comes to the future of the ever-exciting fashion world. A film which vividly showcases the drastic and competitive industry in around 90 minutes. The fashion world guarantees very few long-jeopardy careers, models are just as disposable as last nights leftover dinner, with girls being replaced each season as the new 'It' girl. However this year, five women cemented their careers within modelling, stamping their very expensive, designer heels and bellowing "I am here to stay!" (Not literally but you catch my drift!) Here are the five women that gallivanted from one fashion show to the next and became the envy of every rising model by landing the crème de la crème of campaigns last year.

5. Sasha Luss
With hair as white as snow and a jawline even Sasha Pivovarova would be envious of, Sasha Luss has truly captivated the modelling world this year. Although the Russian beauty has been modelling since 2007, this year was definitely the year that cemented Sasha's status in fashion. Sasha impressed designer Raf Simmons and became the face of Dior, as well as bagging campaigns for Versace, Lanvin and Chanel. She was also handpicked by Steven Miesel for the 2015 Pirelli calendar. She will soon be held in the same ranks as fellow Russian supermodels: Natasha Poly, Sasha Pivovarova and Natalia Vodianova!




4. Saskia De Brauw
Androgynous beauty, Saskia De Brauw, has made an entire career from her sexual ambiguity and her edgy, high fashion look. Proving fashion has no expiry date, the 33 year old had a very impressive year, gracing five top covers as well as accumulating five campaigns, including Louis Vuitton and Moschino; where she modelled alongside icons: Linda Evangelista, Karen Elson and Carolyn Murphy. Quintessentially Danish charm and a short and perfectly-styled pixie cut has kept top designers rebooking Saskia each year.

3. Anna Ewers
Anna's burgeoning career went from strength-to-strength this year. A model famed for evoking the stunning 70s model, Brigitt Bardott, famous pin-up look. Anna has impressed the elite of the fashion industry. Steven Miesel, Mert& Marcus and Alexander Wang have been some of the big names that have celebrated working with the German model, which inevitably helped her land eight major campaigns, including the prestigious Prada campaign. Baby Bardott was also one of the favourites of SS15, walking in 42 shows last season, including Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Valentino. The Bardott reign is certainly not holding up!

2. Amanda Murphy
Chicago born Amanda has become a major player within the modelling world, a girl who was fully embraced by iconic photographer, Steven Miesel, shooting two back-to-back Italian Vogue covers. She has become a force to be reckoned with due to her strong, classical symmetry features and unique look, which inexplicably transfix both designers and fashion followers. Amanda landed six major campaigns including: Prada, Celine, Bottega Veneta and Hugo Boss. She also smashed SS15 Paris fashion week, walking 12 prime shows including: Chanel, Celine, Stella McCartney and Dior.


1. Julia Nobis
This year was a remarkable one for Sydney-born fashion model, Julia Nobis. The nympth beauty served up a euphonic buffet of major campaigns this year including: Dior, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, as well as gracing two Italian Vogue covers! The rising star may have only been discovered in 2009 but is well on her way to becoming one of Australia’s supers, due to her soaring popularity with the industry's elite. Julia has become a sine-qua-non for previous fashion weeks, being highly in-demand for top designers; she walked an impressive 34 shows last season, as well as closing seven!
