It's all about Toni

I couldn't believe I have not post anything on this stunning classic beauty from Germany.Just 15 when she walked exclusively for Calvin Klein (for 2 seasons in a row), she was a hit every designer wanted after her exclusive ended in time for S/S 2009 season where she walked more than 50 shows in NY, Milan and Paris.

Toni has booked almost every single blue chip campaign - Fendi, Calvin Klein, Prada, Dior, Jill Stuart,Donna Karan, Burberry, Chloe, Versace (Versense perfume), Emporio Armani, Etro, Hugo Boss and Shiseido Cle de Peau -just to name a few.

She already had a few Vogue covers in her very brief career-Vogue Germany (of course!), Vogue Italia and Vogue Russia and was featured regularly in every top magazines like Vogue, W, V magazine, I-d, Numero and Tush.

I don't fall in love with Toni instantly like many others do. Don't get me wrong, she is very beautiful indeed but I don't feel her presence. A lot of people have commented that she lacks expression in shots. This, unfortunately, I have to agree. I think Toni can model. Sometimes her shots are good, some falls flat or just plain mediocre. But, the girl have plenty of time. She is just so young and to have her portray as a mature 30-something women in an ad campaign is absurd.

Toni is such a classic beauty and with experience I believe she can deliver. She has so many people supporting her. The designers and photographers love her. This girl is getting better little by little, day by day, with all the chances that she's been given. What I love about her is that she started off as this very cute sweet 15 then she grows up in front of us. She is still just 17 - I say let her take her time. By the way, she's best bud with Karlie Kloss and Ali Stephens too -among many other models that she's been friends with. I love her sweetness, her cute smile and most of all, when I look at her pics now- she's so beautiful , she melts my heart!

Toni is undeniably beautiful but my god is she boring in her photography.
