Back in the 90s, Shalom Harlow was everywhere–from Chanel campaigns to couture, she was one of the supers, (along with Kate Moss, Karolina Kurkova, Amber Valetta et al) and a particular favorite of the fashion set. In the early 2000s, she still worked steadily and added the “slash actress” to her resume, appearing in films like Vanilla Sky and How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days.
She never really left modeling, but we saw her a lot less in the mid-2000s. She switched modeling agencies in 2009, leaving IMG for DNA. She landed some smaller editorials in 2010, but 2012 has really marked the return of Shalom. And we couldn’t be happier.
She just landed the Jason Wu fall campaign, in which she channels the fierce Chinese warriors that stomped down his runway this past February. In honor of snagging this high-profile campaign, we decided to trace Shalom’s newly rising star this year. Click through to see her gorgeous work. Welcome back, Shalom!
