Carla Gebhart is just 18, and has already made appearances on the catwalk for Prada, Christopher Kane, Louis Vuitton and Stefano Pilati’s last dance at Yves Saint Laurent. The Argentine-born model was scouted at 16, and has since modelled for Chanel and Burberry, and stood alongside Milou Van Grosen and Liya Kebede in Balenciaga’s AW’11 campaign. But it wasn’t until the AW’12 catwalks that she really began to get noticed.
Why we like her …
A mane of hair, bright blue eyes and high cheekbones? What’s not to like! Her androgynous style has been likened to Patti Smith, and her youthful fierceness reminds me of Agyness Deyn.
What Carla Gebhart had to say about her AW’12 experience:
“Of course, it was amazing – I liked the clothes very much … but Louis Vuitton was my favourite – I mean, what a show. And I loved Viktor & Rolf, I loved the idea behind the set – walking by a moon. I really liked working with Jonathan Saunders, the clothes were beautiful, but he has such a nice personality – I really liked him.”
