Norwegian model Kat Hessen is on the rise, and she’s determined to make it on her own terms. The enigmatic beauty first landed on our focus this summer. We were impressed by the 20-year-old’s raw yet sensual face; it was apparent homegirl that knew how to model.
At the spring 2011 shows, Hessen debuted on New York’s cooler runways, walking for Rodarte, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander Wang. This success followed her the remaining three legs of Fashion Week, as she walked for Topshop Unique and Christopher Kane in London, Prada and Missoni in Milan, and Miu Miu and Chanel in Paris. In the months to come, anticipate the Nirvana fan to be prominently featured in those directional British magazines.
If she does not become a model, she will ”backpack the world alone, do yoga on the top of remote mountains somewhere in Bhutan with her bearded guru, search for the holy grail in various shady pubs, etc., etc. Why? ‘Cause that’s what all the hip kids do.
