Laura Kampman has had one of the most promising starts to a career that a newbie could ever ask for. While most models spend their days trekking from casting to casting, crossing their fingers for an exclusive, the Dutch dish has booked several in just two seasons, for Calvin Klein in New York and twice for Balenciaga in Paris. And in between: Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, Alexander Wang, Christopher Kane, Missoni, and Sonia Rykiel.
The Balenciaga casting led to a starring role in the house’s spring 2012 campaign, where Kampman must have caught the eye of Steven Meisel, considering he shot her again for Vogue Italia’s February issue. If that isn’t a hell of a six months, we don’t know what is. (New York)
