HILARY RHODA- The classic fashion beauty

After staring in ads for brands such as Hollister and Abercrombie it was easy to see the American model Hilary Rhoda as just another pretty model. In a time where models were to have more strange looking and sometimes 'alienesque' features to go along with their extreme beauty (Mariacarla Boscono, Sasha Pivovarova and Lily Donaldson), Rhoda was without a doubt a successful model, but I myself never saw her as a very interesting face. With her campaigns for Estée Lauder, her intense beauty became more apparent and she was instantly compared to a young Brook Shields. But after seeing these photos in British Harpers Bazaar July 2010 and Italian Elle May 2010 I am impressed and definitely paying more attention. The Harpers Bazaar is still very clean, but mesmerizing at the same time while the Elle edition shows her range and motivation very well. Now I would just love to see her in a full blown Anna Sui meets Alexander McQueen and Phillip Lim type of styling to get that commercial face with the edgy styling to boot!
