Malaika Firth is definitely becoming one of our favourites models. And fashion house Valentino may be feeling the same way about the 19-year-old as she was chosen to open and close the Valentino Spring/Summer 2014 showcase at this week’s Paris Fashion Week.
Gracing the catwalk at Espace Ephemere Tuileries in Paris yesterday, Malaika modelled for the Romantic inspired women’s collection infused with tribal influences.
She was in the company of everybody’s favourite wildchild Cara Delevingne, who also strutted her stuff for Valentino with the most pouty, serious face I’ve seen in a while.
Malaika expressed her excitement at opening and closing for Valentino on her Instagram, noting that it was the first time she had been given such an honour:
Guess who opened and closed the show for Valentino!! I finally opened a show for the first time…I will always remeber this day xxx #God #blessed #PFW#Valentino
Something tells me this won’t be the last time Malaika will be given the task of being the opening model for a catwalk show. Watch this space…
