Vanessa Axente

The Prada exclusive is a title so coveted that it’s practically made careers overnight. This season’s opening spot went to Hungarian head-turner Vanessa Axente, handpicked by Prada’s new casting director, Ashley Brokaw. The classic beauty has been working in the Japanese and Singapore markets since she was 14, and has already nabbed a cover of Harper’s Bazaar Singapore. But a seal of approval from Miuccia herself propelled the starlet—in her debut show season, no less—to additional castings at Givenchy, YSL, Dior, Alexander McQueen, Celine, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten, and Valentino. Something tells us a campaign can’t be far behind. (DNA)
