Fashion month is nearly here (again, yes) and if you’re not getting to the shows, whether you’ll be watching them al desko or perusing the show reports on InStyle, what better way to get the action as it happens than following the models on Instagram?
From the fittings to the shows to the after parties, they can be your correspondents for the month. We all know Cara, Jourdan, Kendall and Gigi so here are the not-quite-so-obvious faces to follow...
Natalia Castellar Calvani
The as-of-yet-unsigned Puerto Rico-born model is our new browspiration. Having already modelled for NARS and Mansur Gavriel, Natalia is set to be big — the new Cara, maybe?
Originally called the next Cara Delevingne (blonde hair, full brows — you can kind of see it), Line Brems has now made her own name on the scene. The Danish model debuted at New York SS15 and has walked at some of the biggest shows since — Louis Vuitton, Maison Marginal,Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino and Rodarte.
VS model Sara Sampaio has gone far more high fash in recent seasons, shooting for magazines and walking in Marc Jacobs and Moschino at MFW SS17.
French model Ophelie is a real street style and photographer favourite, known for her gamine features, brushed-up brows and cool Parisian style.
Bonkersly beautiful Taylor Hill started out with H&M and Victoria’s Secret (she’s an offish Angel) and has moved on to higher fashion jobs with mag shoots and shows. She’s already walked at Moschino, Fendi, Alberta Ferretti, Max Mara, Topshop Unique, Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui for SS17.
A browspiration to us all, Dutch model Maartje walked a record number of shows last season and is friends with a whole model clan making her Instagram one of the most aesthetically pleasing we’ve ever seen.
Soo Joo Park
Soo Joo is the ultimate for #blonde goals — bleached brows, bleached bob, bleached fringe. The Korean model (the first to front two large beauty brands) is a favourite of loads of big fashion names including Karl Lagerfeld, Jeremy Scott and Tom Ford.

Heavily-tatted party animal, and ex of Roby Rose, Catherine seems to be lurving model life — then posting it on Instagram, making for a very followable feed.
Another life-loving member of the model crowd, New Yorker Binx is a regular face on the fashion month catwalks and at the after-pardy scene.
Another fashion month cool kid, leggy Lexi (who, fun fact, has ‘bad’ written on her ribcage) has walked in pretty much every big name show since hitting the scene a few years ago.
Beachy blonde Anna is doing bonkersly, having been named Model Of The Year 2015, covered Vogue and was shot for the Pirelli calendar — and all by the age of 23.
Hanne Gaby Odiele
Belgium newlywed Hanne’s Instagram reflects her fun, quirky signature style, that has seen her walk numerous shows and shot for uncountable campaigns.
