Meet Natalie Westling, the Fashion Industry's New Darling

We're seeing red and loving it.




There's a model making waves on runways from New York to London and now in Milan. And no, it's not Karlie Kloss or Cara Delevingne. Red-haired wonder Natalie Westling, who walked in New York Fashion Week shows including Prabal Gurung, Vera Wang, and Marc by Marc Jacobs has been making headlines for her porcelain doll-like features and that fierce, fiery hair.

The 17-year-old from Arizona, who says her hair is naturally dirty blonde, dyed her locks for Marc Jacobs Spring 2014 ad campaign. From that, she kept the bright hue, even when it cost her other gigs. "A lot of (designers) were surprised," Westling told CNN. "A lot of them didn't like it, but I didn't really care. When it comes to certain shows, obviously, this color wouldn't match the clothing, and it wouldn't look good, so I understand getting canceled for shows or not getting picked for shows."

Well we can say for certain that we're big fans. Take a look at Westling in photos from her fashion week appearances below. We're loving how Prabal Gurung placed her in a look that matched her hair perfectly.
