Irina M. is hotly tipped to be the model of 2009, as she has recently signed to Storm Management. She is most certainly striking and has a gremlin-like feel to her features. Gremlin in a good way of course. I think she looks really beautiful in these shots and I can’t take my eyes off her.
I think models of a different type such as Irina are a welcome change to the cliche blonde-haired-blue-eyed combination we are told to aspire to as children. Irina’s features are also girlish, like a child who has yet to grow into her face. She really does have a gremlin or Yoda-like quality about her--and it really does work on camera. Move over, Agyness Deyn.
