Givenchy, fall 14

Axel Borowski

Discovered by the same Polish agency that bestowed Jac Jagaciak unto the world, Axel Borowski hails from another grand lineage, that of the slightly gawky yet striking beanpole that gave rise to 90s supes Kirsten Owen and Kristen McMenamy.

Making her way from small-town Poland to Berlin, then on to New York and finally Paris, Axel saw her career skyrocket when she was cast in Givenchy's spring 2014 collection. Clearly a favorite of Riccardo Tisci's, she was cast again in fall 2014, this time in the company of Céline and Balenciaga. With her steely, aristocratic gaze and convincing walk, not to mention her endearingly noble ears, the prepossessing Pole is made to be noticed.
