The latest fashion icon progeny to join the esteemed ranks of high fashion models isn't a second generation, but a third. Congratulations to Emma Ferrer — granddaughter of legendary actress/humanitarian Audrey Hepburn — who just signed with Storm Model Management, the London-based agency that also launched the careers of Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford and Cara Delevingne. Of course, you probably remember Ferrer from the September cover of Harper's Bazaar, which is a pretty prestigious first modeling job.
Ferrer also received a crash course in the biz during Fashion Month as she sat FROW at high profile shows, including Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren and Carolina Herrera in New York and Lanvin in Paris. Although, the budding supermodel was one of those overlooked celebs this season. ("I was between Nicki Minaj and Skrillex,” she told the NY Post about her Wang experience.)
According to the Telegraph UK, the 20-year-old Florence Academy of Art student-turned-model is moving from Italy to New York City in January to start her go-sees. She won't be giving up her studies though, as the school actually has a satellite location in... Jersey City. Ferrer also continues Hepburn's charitable work with her own involvement with UNICEF. She also expresses an interest in her grandmother's craft: acting (not unlike Storm roster mate, Cara Delevingne).
But the fashion scion is paving her own way through the business. "What can be bothersome and confusing is when people are disappointed to see I'm not her carbon copy, nor would I want to be," Ferrer tells the Telegraph. "I want to be a person that she would be proud of, and I hope she would be proud because of who I am."
Needless to say, we're excited to see more from Ferrer, like during the February runways, perhaps?
