Since the likes of the effervescent Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Rosie Tapner, we haven’t yet had a new up-and-coming modelling madame to get excited about. Until now. If you haven’t heard of Grace Hartzel, well, that’s all about to change.

She is a relative unknown, yet Saint Laurent’s Creative Director Hedi Slimane has plucked her from a world of young models as his muse and Saint Laurent’s pin-up girl of the next few seasons. It’s unbelievable what success a good fringe cut can bring!

It’s a true Cinderella moment, and one that any girl in the industry would have killed for.

She opened and closed the Saint Laurent AW14 show, and it couldn’t have happened any other way as the entire collection was based solely on her.

Her modelling career began at the tender age of 13, and now at 17 she already seems to have reached somewhat of a pinnacle. She might be touring the world for work, taking up glossy magazine and billboard space with her sultry ads, but her young freshness and vitality is evident in everything else.

Her Twitter (@Gracie2477) is wondrously low key and endearing. Give her a follow. You’ll need to lock in to regular updates on what is sure to be a roller coaster of a year for her.
