Saskia de Brauw perfectly embodies the prototype model that demands the world of fashion today. Androgynous features and a somewhat peculiar beauty that captivates the great designers.

And if one of those designers Karl Lagerfeld is you can go and getting the champagne and celebrate your career is assured for life. A success for this Dutch model of 30 years, an age very unusual to explode in the fashion world, but that has not been an impediment to open gap between the largest and star in campaigns and covers the first level in the last year .


Although all have to admit, his first flirtations with fashion and dating from the runways a few years ago, namely 15. In 1996, paid into a local agency in Amsterdam, his hometown, but would leave the agency a year later to pursue art studies, his main vocation.

After completing the study decided to focus his career in that discipline. In her website you can see some of his works with which he has been involved professionally precisely to the last year, and having worked in a bakery and be giving art classes for children.


However recognizes that discipline was not well paid, in fact in some of his work owed a lot of money so encouraged by his friends in the fashion world decided to try his luck 13 years later. Why not?

And of course I was lucky. His androgynous features are even more precious now than in 1996 and in just a few weeks and would be doing castings for fashion shows class. His debut it in 2010 to Matthew Williamson in New York.

Riccardo Tisci was captivated by his androgyny and its peculiar beauty and wanted at any cost as much for his show for Givenchy campaign goal that obviously already got the end of 2010 we would have our protagonist as signature image along with Iris Strubbeger .

But fixing Riccardo Tisci Saskia de Brauw went further and appealed to our male protagonist for the parade, something similar to what happened with Andrej Pejic and Gaultier, but in reverse.


In just a few months it would rain advertising campaigns, reaching well into 2011. This year, as well as Givenchy would see campaigns as diverse as Dsquared2, Versace (top) or Moncler, where Steven Meisel was also captivated by his beauty.

And of course the first cover, highlighting that you see in the image above. It is a cover anyone, is the latest cover of Carine Roitfeld as director of Vogue Paris, do not hesitate to choose our character today to illustrate its latest issue.


And in the same month as well as the cover of Italian Vogue, photographed by Steven Meisel. And that is repeated in two publications cover as Paris Vogue and Vogue Italia in the same month is available to very few.

But covers aside, the most striking of his brilliant career in recent months is her flirtation with Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld in particular what is reporting enormsbnfcoings professionals in recent months, as we have seen closing the Chanel fashion Resort, starring in the same collection lookbook and opening and closing the last haute couture show in Paris signature.


There are many rumors that we may already be at the new replacement for the very Freja Beha campaigns for Chanel, but for now are big words, something must have water when they bless.
