Model of the Moment - Kati NescherPosted by Jo on Friday 3rd January 2014
Model agents are never short of a good yarn about their very latest discovery; 'she was spotted on the bus in her school uniform' or whilst 'shopping with a group of teenagers in TopShop.' How refreshing it is to hear that the latest model to cause a stir right now: Kati Nescher simply put herself forward, visiting an established local agent as a fully grown woman and mother in her mid-twenties!
Hailing from Russia and growing-up in Germany Kati has confirmed her status as a top model with an endless list of show appearances; from Chanel to Yves Saint Laurent to Alexander McQueen and now staring out at the world from the February edition of British Vogue. No stranger to glossy editorials - you will have already seen her in Vogue Germany, Marie Claire, and The New York Times amongst many others and her campaign bookings look equally as strong.
So what's all the fuss about? Her 5'11" frame make her perfect for high-end catwalk shows while her killer cheek bones and her adaptable face have likened Kati to Linda Evangelista's chameleon-like ability.
Girls making their mark on the designer catwalks have often been scouted while still at school, agents then build on the hype and wait for the bookings to come in but for Kati it was a matter of right look, right time with the added bonus of being able to handle the business with a mature head on her shoulders. Now the industry is opening up to models of all ages there's no doubt we will be seeing more of Kati for a good while yet.
