Julia Saner, a Jewel in the Ruff

Paris, October 2010, Spring-Summer 2011 Collections…

Every once in a while in the Fashion Biz there surfaces a new face out of all the shows. Julia Saner has left an impression in making her big entrance during Milan and Paris fashion week. She participated in all of the big shows (Christian Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Lanvin, Céline, Alexander McQueen…). In certain presentations, she did more than one look. Like at Valentino: She had 3 looks and even opened the show: A real recognition of her ascendancy. She has not been seen in many editorials yet but she has been announced as being The Face of the next Valentino campaign (see preview below).

Julia is from Switzerland, she was born in 1992. She is not really a new face out of the blue, as she won the World Elite Model Look Contest in 2009 and is being extremely well promoted by her model Agency Elite…

I can see a resemblance between her and the young Brooke Shields from their eyebrows to their dimpled smile. When she lets her hair down the resemblance to Brooke is flagrant…
