When September comes round again, attention will turn to the four fashion capitals of the world — New York, London, Milan and Paris — to see what’s new at the spring-summer 2017 fashion shows. As always, some models will stand out during the Fashion Month, and they will be the ones who the big brands sign up for their next campaigns. Here’s our lowdown on the models everyone will be talking about.

Gigi Hadid’s little sis needs no introduction, as she’s already won over planet fashion. But even as her star rises, she could still pull out a few surprises. She was recently made the face of Dior Beauty, and is likely to be in high demand during Fashion Month, particularly in New York and Paris. She’s expected to walk for Dior, where she could open or close the show, and could also stride out for Chanel, Miu Miu or Givenchy as she’s done catwalk work for them previously.
In just two years, the young Bella has shot to stardom in the model world. She recently posed for two editions of Vogue and is regularly on the front page of the world’s top fashion magazines. She also featured in the J.W. Anderson, Calvin Klein and Givenchy fall-winter 2016 campaigns.

Her name may not be familiar to you, but this Spanish model has caught the attention of a raft of fashion brands. Spontaneous and charismatic, Steffy has that little something extra that brands are looking for. She has already won over Emilio Pucci, Lancaster, Mango, Max Mara, Just Cavalli, Topshop, and A.P.C., and that’s only in 2016.
And she’s no stranger to the catwalk, having worked for Paul & Joe, Kenzo, Isabel Marant, Courrèges, Cédric Charlier, Jacquemus and Topshop Unique for the spring-summer 2016 collections. There’s no doubt that the bigger fashion houses will snap her up for the upcoming shows.

This American model has attracted a large number of brands with her ability to switch from rock’n’roll to sensual to femme fatale. She’s only 20, but is already a Victoria’s Secret Angel, and has been a Lancôme ambassador since July.
On top of these highly sought-after contracts, she has partnered with many other big names in fashion for both ad campaigns (Topshop, Jimmy Choo, Miu Miu, and Michael Kors) and on the catwalk (Tommy Hilfiger, Jeremy Scott, DKNY, Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Fendi, Mugler, Miu Miu, and H&M).
The brunette with the piercing eyes was also named social media model of the year at the 2015 Fashion Media Awards. There’s no doubt that she’s only at the beginning of a long and successful career.
