There is something very attractive and endearing about this model who debuted on the runway when she was only 15, as an exclusive for the Calvin Klein Spring/Summer 2008 runway show in New York. Originally form Hamburg, Germany, she then went to be featured in the designer's ad campaign. The following season, this daughter of a business woman mother and an oil refinery worker father, she again walked exclusively for Calvin Klein the following season. In the 2009 seasons alone, she walked over 60 shows for prestigious designers such as Stella McCartney, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes, Dolce & Gabanna, Michael Kors and others.
TONI GARNN is our star gazing feature this time around.
We love her simplicity and the other side of her that can be transformed looking all so glamorous and classic. She has such sharp and perfect facial features that we believe make any photographer's dream come true to work with as she photographed exceptionally well. Doesn't she look stunning up close?
This year, in 2014, she collaborates with German denim label, CLOSED and designs her own line of jeans. Proceeds from the sales of her Closed T-shirts, her two colour versions of the "toni" jeans will be donated to help women in Afrika to get better educations (here for more on this collaboration). This is also a joined effort with a charity organization called Plan International, which Toni is the ambassador for Because I Am A Girl project (learn more about it here).
The design of the "toni" jeans is pretty cool, combining comfort and and some great detailing. She does make the jeans look effortlessly cool and comfortable to wear, obviously. Since 2013, she is also dating the ever charming Hollywood actor, Leonardo De Caprio. Perhaps that's why they can click and connect because both are passionate about charity work? (Not too sure if they are still together though, we know how celebrity couples relationships are, don't we? Unpredictable *_^)
We adore her look as a versatile model, and love her more as a person with that sunshine personality she carries with her. In fact, we fell in love with her because of this chic picture of Toni in a blue denim top and her carefree messy-in-the-wind sort of long hair. That was the first picture that caught our attention about this model. Of course, we also love the stunning visual campaign image she carries for the iconic makeup brand, NARS here.
A stunning beauty she is. Check out the video on her talking about her collaboration with CLOSED at the end of the blog post. It is refreshing indeed to see how influential personality can make a difference through the things that they truly believe and help make the world a better place.
