Cool & Carefree Kendra Spears | FashionTV’s Model Of The Week
There’s something oh so Cindy Crawford about this Seattle stunner; perhaps it’s the beauty spot above her lip, perhaps her almond-shaped eyes, perhaps her million-dollar smile? Meet FashionTV’s Model of the Week, Kendra Spears!
Birth Date: August 5, 1988
Height: 5 ft. 10
Seattle stunner Kendra Spears has been rocking the world's most opulent runways for the past ten fashion seasons, but the fresh faced beauty is best known for being a finalist in the Ford Models Supermodel Of The World 2008 contest via MySpace.
Though she lost first place to Korean model Hyoni Kang, Spears quickly landed a contract with Ford Models and debuted on the New York Fashion Week catwalk for the Spring 2009 season, opening the Trovata show, also walking for Isaac Mizrahi, L'Wren Scott, and Ports 1961. Today she is signed with Next Models.
Rocking the Runway
This marked the beginning of a fruitful modeling career for the 24-year-old mega model who can now boast having walked the world’s most opulent catwalks from Marc Jacobs and Fendi, to Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, and even Kanye West among others!
But most impressively is not so much Spears’ runway moments, but her campaigns, editorials, and magazine covers which have helped to sell millions of copies worldwide. It is quite the achievement to land your first cover after only one fashion week season, and that’s exactly what happened Spears; today she has featured on the covers of over 10 magazines including Vogue Japan, Vogue China, Elle France, and Dazed & Confused.
Kendra the Campaign Queen
Spears perfectly photogenic features are also hot in demand for international advertising campaigns, this season alone, she has secured contracts with Versace Underwear, Escada, Max Mara Studio, PINKO, Tod’s, Louis Vuitton Collection Cruise, Armani Code Fragrance, and Patek Philippe for Spring 2013! Phew*
And though the city chick may spend her life flying around the world, she has her head still resting firmly on her shoulders:
“I like to consider myself as sophisticated,” says Spears. “I think it’s about being open minded and not so much about what you know but taking in information all the time and always responding positively [to situations].”
But modelling aside, Spears is an avid traveler last Summer alone she jet-set between Sardinia, Hawaii, Seattle, New York, Biarritz, and England with her surfer boyfriend who has even got Spears trying her hand at riding the waves too! Is there anything this chick can’t do?!
Which model do you look up to
