Vogue journalist Janelle Okwodu crafted a list of the 16 models that dominated the headlines during fashion month, and fresh faced Croatian model Faretta Radić was marked first. While we aren’t sure exactly how old Faretta Radić is (some sources say 16, others say 18), we are sure that she truly is the complete package, and Vogue seems to agree.


“It’s rare for a model to have the total package of a powerful walk, commanding presence, and next-level beauty, but somehow Faretta managed it. Following up her debut at Givenchy last fall, the Croatian stunner appeared on all the right runways, then took things full circle by walking Riccardo Tisci’s SS17 show,” Okwodu with Vogue proclaims.


On the catwalks of the world, the Croatian model has already appeared in Paris on the catwalk for the autumn collection by Givenchy, after which she wore and their men’s collection, as well as their couture collection. She also wore Dior, Valentino, Versace and Chanel, and Fendi at the Trevi fountain in Rome.

During this fashion month, all of the biggest fashion houses have given Radić the chance to wear their garments for their shows. At New York Fashion Week, Radić wore Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, Tory Burch, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Joseph Altuzarra, Vera Wang, Narciso Rodriguez, Hugo Boss, Anna Sui, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs. A week later in Milan, Radić appeared on the runways in Alberta Ferretti, Roberto Cavalli, Fendi, Prada, Diesel, Sportmax, Etra, Versace and Bottega Veneta. In Paris, she wore the first collection of Anthony Vaccarella for Yves Saint Laurent, as well as Dries van Noten, Chloe, Isabel Marant, Dior, Thierry Mugler, Nina Ricci, Celine, Valentino, Givenchy, honeycomb, Alexander McQueen, Chanel and Miu Miu, reports Buro 247.


Vogue’s tribute to Radić will hopefully be another step towards greater visibility in the world of fashion, which she has already managed to conquer in just two seasons.
