It has been an extraordinarily life-changing year for 18 year old Alanna Arrington from Iowa. After a breakout show season where she both opened and closed shows during her first ever fashion week, walking in the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and fronting a campaign for Stella McCartney, Alanna has gone from mid-western teen to international model in a giant leap.
Scouted at a drop in go-see at age fifteen by the scouting duo of Mother Model Management, modeling had not really been on Alanna’s radar, other than comments from friends and family that she was tall and lean and it might be an option. Her first ever trip out of the country was to London Fashion Week, following a whirlwind week in NYC doing shows.
Like many models before her, Alanna’s star turn came by way of a career-altering haircut. Normally rocking long curls, she took a chance and let her hair be cut up to a shorter length, followed by bangs and a few more inches off, and voila, she had the look of the season that made her stand out. Her ethnic ambiguity makes her unique and gives her broad appeal across demographics, and has quickly made her a favorite of designers, editors and photographers.
Considering all she has accomplished in such a short time, it’s hard to remember that she is just now breaking out into the model of the moment. Almost daily, she appears in new international campaigns and editorials, and is set to be a fixture on the show circuit. Regardless, she is still a teen at heart wanting to sing, dance, play basketball, and devour Harry Potter novels. There is so much awaiting this beauty! This girl is on her way.
