Tao Okamoto

Recently, Kiki and I were speaking about how mono-chromatic the models (as opposed to the clothes) are at Prada. Miuccia is infamous for always sticking to the "white girls", which seems all the more suprising especially after the Vogue Italia issue last summer done with solely black models, but hey- fashion is fashion. It doesn't always make sense.

Enter Tao Okamoto. She isn't exactly a newcomer to fashion. However, she was the first Asian model to walk for Prada in two years. Not only that, but according to style.com, she also walked more than 45 shows this season alone.
I'm in love with her new bowl haircut (inspired by Philip Lim), and her versatily. Not to mention those cheekbones.. whoa.

So fabulous! I love her haircut too. Only someone so gorgeous could pull that off. And how totally bad ass is that picture on the left? I want a crazy fur vest.
