Those fierce blue eyes and perfectly sculpted cheekbones were unmistakable: There she was. Dallas model Kelly Gillespie walking down the runway yesterday at Marc Jacobs’ spring 2014 fashion show in New York.
You might remember Gillespie. She was one of the four bombshells who starred in FD Luxe’s September issue rock ‘n’ roll fashion feature, titled “Crazy Sexy Cool.” Just a week after we finished photographing that story in July, Gillespie — who is represented in Dallas by the Kim Dawson Agency — moved to the Big Apple, where she began working with mega-agency, IMG models.
For a model, landing a chance to walk down Marc Jacobs’ runway is considered a major coup. The designer’s show is always one of the most talked about spectacles during New York Fashion Week, and it stars many of the fashion world’s top It Girls. (Georgia May Jagger and Cara Delevingne took to the runway yesterday, too.)
Word is Gillespie left New York this morning to head to London Fashion Week. We can’t wait to see which runway she walks down next. —Christina Geyer
