If there is one thing theFashionSpot forum members are truly exceptional at (in addition to their ability to share scans and insider news at light speed), it’s their talent to hype up the most promising new models before anyone else does.
Dutch beauty Rianne van Rompaey’s thread on the forums was started in 2011 by subway123, who noted, “I have been seeing her in Paparazzi's site the last year but I don’t know her last name or if she is signed abroad. The only thing I know is that she is GORGEOUS!”
Almost three years later, Rianne landed her first major job: she closed Nicolas Ghesquière’s first runway show for Louis Vuitton.
“Sold me closing Vuitton — definitely one of the strong appearances of the season for a new face. Color me a fan,” posted youarearockstar about the 5’11” tall redhead who’s signed with the agencies Viva in Paris and London and DNA in New York.
Last week, Rianne had the honor of opening the Louis Vuitton Cruise show, clearly establishing herself as a new muse for Ghesquière. We have yet to see her in any major campaigns or magazines, but her potential is easy to see and forum members have no doubt that this girl is on her way to become big. And, as TREVOFASHIONISTO pointed out, “The more you look at her, the more interesting she gets.”
Rianne is one of the most buzzed about models on the forums this week. And indeed, we cannot get enough of her.
