Once in a very blue moon a model comes along that sparks the imagination of designers, editors and photographers, with her ability to transform herself and to become different characters to suit each project. American beauty Grace Hartzel is one of the break out models of the last year with her large, wide-set eyes and willowy body, going from covers to campaigns without batting an eyelash.
At merely twenty years old, Indiana native Grace began modeling when she was scouted in 2011, quickly making the leap from a new face to a standout runway star in short order, quickly racking up runway shows, covers, and campaigns, around the world.
Grace has loved transforming herself with style and makeup since she was a child, initially planning on an acting career before modeling became an option, so the transition to modeling was an easy one for her, going from goth, to ultra-feminine, to sixties mod, to 90's grunge, all while looking like the coolest girl that everyone wants to hang with.
Her chameleon-like ability and her willingness to hide her own identity in becoming a character make her a dream model for photographers and editors. Having a great awareness of movement and instinctually knowing what the camera is seeing gives her an edge over other models who are bound by their look and brand.
Acting is definitely in the cards, as still photography is proving to be a training ground for Grace who recently shot the new commercial video for Salvatore Ferragamo’s fragrance Signorina Misteriosa and loved every second of it. Such an animated, imaginative model should surely make the jump from printed pages to the big screen. No doubt Grace will make it look easy.
