1. Lucky Blue Smith

Scouted at the tender age of 10 alongside his three sisters, Lucky Blue Smith began his modelling career at 12. Lucky hit the limelight particularly after he dyed his hair platinum at his agent’s request.

His bleach blonde locks paired with his glacial blue eyes became his signature look through the rise of his career. Lucky was the face of campaigns for Tom Ford and Philipp Plein. He has also posed for editorials with Vogue, GQ and Harper’s Bazaar.

Alongside his impressive modelling career, Lucky has a surf-rock band with his siblings called ‘The Atomics”. It’s no surprise to discover that his mother, Sheridan Smith, was a former model and his father, Dallon, a musician.

Lucky is currently represented by IMG Models and continues to walk the runway for Fendi, Chanel and Ralph Lauren.

2. Zhengyang Zhang

The androgynous IMG model Zengyang Zhang wows in front of the camera. His long black hair and angular body captivate and entice the lens.

Zengyang is a fresh face to watch as he models for top brands such as H&M and Hugo.

He was a professional dancer for over 10 years and studied Chinese Ethnic and Folk Dancing. This raw talent provides Zengyang with a fluidity in front of the camera.

Zengyang walked in over nine shows for New York Fashion week, including Balmain and Versace. He has also walked in every Anna Sui fashion show since his debut at fashion week.
