Even if you have no intention of walking down the aisle, bridal fashion week is a feast for the eyes thanks to the dresses, the bouquets, and, of course, the models. As casting directors and designers search for the faces who will embody their romantic vision, they often feature new models who may have flown under the radar during fashion month. These beauties will likely go on to big things as the seasons progress, but take a look now at four from bridal week you ought to know
1. Briley Jones
Flame-haired Missourian Jones was discovered by Mother Model Management, the same talented team who first spotted Karlie Kloss and Ashton Kutcher. Prior to bridal week, Miss Jones made her presence felt on the catwalk with exclusive spots at Miu Miu and Bottega Veneta. On the runway for Carolina Herrera, she was demure in white lace, but this versatile newcomer is equally at home in ripped jeans and a leather jacket.
2. Djenice Silva
Hailing from Cape Verde, Africa, the beautiful Silva has been working since 2013, but only landed on the runway this season with a turn at DKNY. With her upturned eyebrows and lanky figure, she looks like no one else, so it’s only a matter of time before the right photographer finds inspiration in her unique beauty.
3. Kadri Vahersalu
As one of Fall’s busiest catwalkers, Vahersalu had a leg up on the competition for bridal week. Still, her distinctive presence on the runway made her a girl to watch at shows like Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera. Hailing from Tallinn, Estonia, Vahersalu’s distinctive heterochromia iridum adds another layer to her quirky beauty.
4. Stasha Yatchuk
Yatchuk’s big break came at Prada’s F/W ’14 menswear show, where she walked alongside the boys and brought a touch of sexiness to Miuccia’s catwalk. Opening Peter Copping’s first bridal show for Oscar de la Renta is an equally major coup and earns the elegant beauty a place on our watch list.
