The Martinique beauty took her island roots from the relaxing beaches to the hustle and bustle of the runways. In September 2010, she walked for designers such as Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, and Max Azria. But her stride didn’t stop there—she also strutted for Gucci, Missoni and Prada the same month. The 21-year-old has appeared in Italian Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.
