Rising Stars: 10 Up-And-Coming Models To Keep On Your Radar

The term ‘supermodel’ is so loosely used these days, it’s becoming harder to discern the Insta-famous from the real talents. In our books, real superstar models do more than just take pretty selfies and sign famous last names.

Yes, otherworldly features are a factor, but it’s also about consistently working hard and breaking boundaries. Here are 10 catwalk stars we can’t stop talking about (and looking at). Mark our words: they’re about to be everywhere.

Here at #TeamCLEO, we’re huge fans of the Top Model franchise. Entertaining, fun and unnecessarily dramatic, even the most cynical in us have to admit that it’s great reality TV. While both the American and Asian version get plenty of chatter, I’m personally a huge fan of the Australian edition. Forget the drama, the girls on AUSNTM are quality. Case in point: Duckie Thot.

Raised in Melbourne, Duckie placed third in Cycle 8 but it wasn’t long before international shows came calling. You might have spotted Duckie strutting the recent Victoria’s Secret and Balmain runways, and she’s scored the coveted spot in beauty campaigns such as L’Oreal and Fenty Beauty. Oh, and she also starred in the 2018 Pirelli Calendar shoot. NBD.
