The 15 models to look out for at New York Fashion Week

From the faces to the frocks, here are 15 of the hottest models on the fashion circuit right now.

Gracing the catwalks and editorials of the world's most renowned fashion houses, these runway stars were specially selected to kick off New York Fashion Week in style.

Wearing the designer duds of their choice, rather than the ones chosen for them, the runway stars schmoozed alongside veteran models and showbiz stars at the amfAR party, before they take their turn on the runway this weekend.

See what makes them stand out from the crowd.

  • Blanca Padilla

    Like all the best models, 20-year-old Spanish fashionista Blanca Padilla was discovered in a rather mundane setting - the underground station in Madrid. From then on she went from business student to catwalk star for some of the biggest names in the business.

    She also has more than a touch of the Keira Knightley about her. 

  • Alicia Rountree

    Not only is she a model and restaurateur who looks great in head-to-toe green, Alicia Rountree, grew up in Mauritius and used to date Jude Law.

  • Josephine Skriver

    Denmark's answer to Kate Moss? The 21-year-old's star quality shines through as she poses in a Gabriel Cadena gown with matching smoky eyes.

    A high-profile LGBT advocate, Skriver's mother and father are both gay and met through an advert her mother placed for a gay man to start a family with.

  • Grace Mahary

    A keen basketball player, Canadian Grace Mahary began modelling after getting her teeth knocked out during a game. She got her big break in 2012, walking for Givenchy.

  • Kristine Froseth

    As well as pulling off a mean top knot, the 18-year-old Norwegian-American model has worked with big names like Calvin Klein and Prada.

  • Catherine McNeil

    The 25-year-old Australian has been a face on the circuit since 2007, when she won a TV modelling contest.

    Earlier this month she instagrammed a bathroom selfie captioned "I don't wanna go back to nyc ever again" - but she appears to have got over it in time for the shows.

  • Soo Joo Park

    This 27-year-old South Korean-American model graduated as an architect before being discovered by a model scout in a shop. She counts Carine Roitfeld, Tom Ford and Karl Lagerfeld among her fans.

  • Simona Andrejic

    The 20-year-old Serbian's distinctive looks have landed her gigs for the biggest names - but she's got her feet on the ground.

    "I love to wear designer clothes, combined with designs made by my mother," she told World of Models.

  • Jacquelyn Jablonski

    The 23-year-old American has graced the world's most respected fashion bibles and walked for the biggest names. She has also raised funds for charities supporting people with autism and has a two-year-old brother with the condition.

  • Oluchi Orlandi

    At 34, this Nigerian runway star and Africa's Next Top Model host is considered "mature" in model years - not that you'd know it from looking at her.

  • Zuzanna Bijoch

    Famous for her piercing green eyes and low-maintenance look, 20-year-old Zuzanna Bijoch began modelling when she was just 13.

  • Anna Cleveland

    The daughter of '70s modelling star Pat Cleveland, Anna, 25, has the same striking looks and statuesque poise.

  • Ammalie Overbeck

    Unlike most models, Danish runway regular Ammalie Overbeck is pretty low-profile, with closed social media accounts. However, she did make it into the New York gossip columns a few days ago when she was was reportedly invited to dine with Cuba Gooding Jr - who allegedly showed Ammaline and her model friend his abs.

  • Alla Kostromichova

    The 28-year-old Ukrainian looks like a quintessential Carolina Herrera girl in her elegant monochrome gown. 

  • Charlotte di Calypso

    The 24-year-old French model is the new face of Ralph Lauren, and has previously modelled for the likes of Chanel, Gucci, Pucci and Christian Dior.
