ela finalmente chegou: the new kate moss

22Nov09

inside Nov. 09 British Vogue

The new Kate Moss is Brazilian.  The first time I spotted her was in Nylon‘s October 2007 issue, featured as a rising star.  Alice Dellal’s wild hair cut and foreign features caught my eye.  I also noticed Dellal was not as leggy as the average editorial model.  Still, the camera captured a strong presence and spirit.

I came across Dellal again in this month’s British Vogue. She has graced the pages of other magazines including Dazed & Confused, French Vogue, and L’Officiel. At only 5’5”, the Brazilian rebel has been deemed the new Kate Moss.   This title is fitting as Dellal has been seen out on the town with questionable company partaking in questionable activities not unlike Moss did in her youth.  Last year she replaced Moss as the new face of Agent Provocateur. Dellal’s style is also similar to the 90’s grunge of Kate Moss.  She champions cut off denim, floral minidresses, and chunky shoes.

Dellal is currently London’s it girl.  The boss of Britain’s fashion scene, i-D magazine, has shot 12 different covers, each featuring one of the “Best British Models.”  Dellal will make her official British debut with her cover.  The 12 models also include legends Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Twiggy as well as newcomers Agyness Deyn and Jourdan Dunn.

Dellal was famous before she was famous.  Her mother is Brazilian model Andrea Dellal and her father is a millionaire and bodyguard to the stars.  Her friends include Pixie Geldof and Daisy Lowe, two of my favorite British models/socialites.  The three recently left Select Model Management to sign with Next.  It’s rumored Select was not a fan of the girls’ hard partying. But girls will be girls.  One of the biggest perks of fashion modeling is the social scene.

What I love most about this girl is her personal style.  The way people dress in their down time speaks mountains about a person.  Dellal pulls off the fierce haircut, combat boots, and leather details on the daily.  “I like my style. If people don’t like my hair, then they don’t have to book me,”  Dellal said on Vogue.com.  But it looks like that hair cut will be landing her a plenty of shows this upcoming season.

“When I was seven, I caught my reflection in a spoon and though, ’Wow! I‘m ridiculously good-looking.‘”– Dellal in Nylon, Oct. 07
