1. Adut Akech
Everywhere you look, Adut Akech’s face is plastered on magazine covers. At nineteen years old, Adut has been modelling for only three years, but already she’s a fashion superstar.
The South Sudanese beauty emigrated to Adelaide, Australia, when she was a child and at sixteen signed with Chadwick Models, Sydney. Since then, Adut’s career has skyrocketed.
She’s been on the cover of countless magazines, including Vogue Australia, Vogue Italia, i-D and Allure. Not only that, she’s opened and closed shows for Chanel, walked the runway for Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu And Prada, and has shot campaigns for Versace, Fendi and Valentino.

We’re only halfway through 2019 and already Hannah Elyse has opened the runway for Philipp Plein, closed for Moschino and been photographed by Ellen von Unwerth. That’s not to mention her countless campaigns with Daisy. She’s also one of Louis Vuitton’s favourites on the runway.
It seems like the whole world is in love with Hannah! It’s easy to see why—her signature dark hair and porcelain skin are stunning. Fun fact: she has quite a thing for tattoos, with a tattoo artist for a boyfriend, and a huge pelvic hannya tattoo.
3. Nonny Mulholland
Nonny Mulholland first entered our radar when she became a finalist of Miss Universe Australia in 2015. After that, she signed up with Chadwick Models and has been rocking the modelling scene ever since.
