All-American girl Hilary Rhoda is a breath of fresh air to all the doll-faced models that currently rule the runway (of course that doesn’t mean I don’t love Jessica Stam).
The former field hockey and lacrosse player attended an all-girl’s school in her native Maryland. How Gossip Girl of her! Who didn’t love the Blair-Serena showdown in the hockey field?
She has appeared in numerous advertising campaigns like Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana and most recently signed a contract with Estée Lauder as their newest face. She has also been in the cover of Italian Vogue (three times), Paris Vogue, W and the famous supermodels-of-the-future cover of American Vogue – and she looked stunning in each one.
Earning an estimated total of $2 million in the past 12 months, this July Forbes magazine named her twelfth in the list of the World’s 15 Top-Earning Supermodels.
She appears to be very close to another of my favorite models Coco Rocha and – this is the best part – she was born on April 6 1987: just like I was! To the year!
