1. Abbey Lee Kershaw
It’s clear that Abbey Lee Kershaw can not only rock anything she wears; she also has the unique ability to look like a completely different person with a simple change of hairstyle and makeup. Most models you see look practically identical in anything they wear, but not for Abbey. She is absolutely stunning in any look, from glamorous to gothic, while looking like another woman!
If you’re looking for a bit of a confidence boost, Abbey gives you just that, giving anybody the courage to dress as they desire. She looks confident, calm, and collected in each of her photoshoots while really getting into character according to her look.
2. Ruby Rose
Ruby Rose? More like Ruby Rosie the Riveter! This beauty may have tattoos here and there and may be a bit rough around the edges, but that’s what makes this model unique and pleasing to the eye. Plus, she proves that women can be dominant and in-charge.
Ruby’s tom-boyish fashion sense, short haircuts, and tough-as-nails facial expresses make her stand out as a model, a much different vibe than all the girly, frilly models we’re so used to seeing on a daily basis.
3. Skye Stracke
What makes Skye Strake unique as a model is her variation of innocent yet fierce looks. She’ll look adorable in some photoshoots while absolutely stunning and purely confident in others. She has that “shy but bold” style, showing off her sweet yet sophisticated personality.
Moving from Australia to the United States in 2008 to expand her career, Skye since then has been a successful model, regardless of the fact she is only in her mid-twenties. Skye Strake is definitely a huge inspiration for those striving to be fashion models in the future, given that she is so young yet very successful. This sweet gal gives other girls the hope that they may one day be in a fashion show for Chanel or may be pictured in Russian Vogue, just as she did. You’re never too young!
4. Stefania Ferrario
Stick-thin models are so yesterday. Instead of judging a model by the size of her body, why not just give every girl a chance to strut her stuff? Stefania Ferrario does just that! This so-called “plus-sized model,” though better to be simply called a model, is living proof that you don’t have to be thin to be beautiful, plus she’s simply gorgeous!
Stefania, though is just as beautiful clothed, often does nude photoshoots, showing her confidence with who she is and not letting rude comments get in her way. “Unfortunately in the modelling industry if you’re above a US size 4 you are considered plus size, and so I’m often labelled a ‘plus size’ model. I do NOT find this empowering,” Say Stefania. Sorry, fashion industry, but Stefania Ferracio is NOT a “plus-sized” model. Thank you for giving women the confidence they deserve. Do your stuff, Stefania!
5. Montanna Cox
Another very young and inspiring model is Montana Cox. Montana is simply beautiful, and as weird as this sounds, she has a very unique, yet beautiful, nose.
Surprising for her age, Montana clearly knows what she wants and doesn’t let others influence her opinion, definitely showing in an interview she had earlier on in the year when asked about her fashion faux pas: “Nothing too short, although it’s still warm and you want to show some skin. Midriffs are a definite no-no, you’ve got to keep it classy. Also, stilettos can get stuck in grass. You’re better off going for a wedge.” Keep it classy? Wow, Montana Cox clearly is a unique model, and certainly mature enough to make her own decisions!
