True style is truly timeless
The Model CoOp is proud to represent so many talented women who continue to bring both elegance and experience to Fashion Week’ shows around the world. Here we offer a snapshot of our stars as they shine on the runway.
Pat Cleveland has been bringing her signature sashay to the runway for over 30 years, and she never disappoints. During her last stellar season, Pat walked in four significant shows in three cities. Hellessey and Naeem Khan during NYFW, Laura Biagiotti during Milan Fashion Week, and the Tommy x Zendaya show with Grace Jones and Zendaya during Paris Fashion Week.
Cecilia Chancellor’s beauty is both classic and versatile. A runway regular she walks for both Women’s ready-to-wear and Haute Couture designers, such as Dries Van Noten and Maison Valentino, as well as featuring in Ferragamo S/S 2020 Men's ready-to-wear show in Milan.
Hannelore Knuts is a beauty and a chameleon, a quality that means she is always in demand during fashion week, both in NYC and in Europe. Over the last two seasons, she has walked for ready-to-wear designers such as Dries Van Noten and Ecklaus Latta, among others. Most recently she featured in Piccioli’s spectacular show for Valentino during Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris.
YASMIN LE BON
Yasmin Le Bon always brings some rock-n-roll to the runway. Last season, she walked for Calvin Klein Collection’s Ready to Wear Spring/Summer 2019 fashion show during New York Fashion Week, followed by walking the celeb-packed L’Oréal Paris fashion event. Held on a 60-meter runway that floated on the Seine, the show featured contributions from the collections of numerous Paris-based designers.
TATJANA PATITZ AND PAULINA PORIZKOVA
Tatjana Patitz has appeared on some of the most iconic covers in the industry, and recently she returned to the runway for Etro's show during Milan Fashion Week in February 2019.
Not only is Paulina Porizkova featured in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit edition 2019, she also walked for her friend, Jiri Kalfar, during New York Fashion Week.
ESTHER DE JONG AND CAROL ALT
Esther De Jong, the former face of Prada, remains a runway favorite appearing in shows for TOME and Dries Van Noten, and more recently for The Row at New York Fashion Week in 2018.
Similarly, Carol Alt walked the runway at New York Fashion Week closing the Dennis Bass Fall 2019 show in a black velvet off-the-shoulder long-sleeve top and copper-colored satin ball skirt (see image below).
