Carine Roitfeld has said that discovering new models is like ‘falling in love – you just know.’

And we know the feeling because we’ve totally fallen for the four faces of our SS13 campaign, the rising stars Rosie Tapner, Bambi, Juliana Schurig and Nimue Smit. Commit their names to memory now because you’ll be seeing a lot more of them from here on in.

Girls who know their Topshop history will remember that we’ve championed models like Jourdan Dunn and Lily Donaldson long before they hit the big-time, so here’s a little intro to our four new faces so you can get to know them before everyone else does.

Rosie Tapner

Perfectly pouty and oh-so-poised, Rosie Tapner is a true English Rose but with just the right amount of schoolgirl rebelliousness. She was scouted at the age of fifteen on an outing to the Clothes Show Birmingham with her classmates from Downe House boarding school, and it wasn’t long before she was opening shows like Chloe, and had an exclusive Balenciaga campaign under her belt. The sixteen year old high jumping champ was recently featured in LOVE magazine’s top new girls to watch, but we were already hot off the mark having shot the fair-haired beauty for our Spring Campaign, like, aaages ago.


Just get a load of those eyebrows. Bambi is our hot new Aussie girl crush, every bit as cute as her name suggests. With a laidback fresh-off-the-beach style and an innocent yet impish face, she’s the perfect summertime muse. The twenty year old Melbourne beauty (real name Stephanie Bambi Northwood Blythe) first came to international attention when she was spotted on a blog with her boyfriend-now-fiance, Ksubi founder Dan Single. Fast forward three years and she’s walked for everyone from Chanel to Rag and Bone, scooped campaigns for Calvin Klein and covered Vogue Japan and V magazine. Girl is on fire.

Nimue Smit

Not strictly speaking a new girl on the block, the doll-like Dutch model has us so enamoured, she’s been in our campaign twice! We photographed the ethereal beauty first for our Spring 2009 when she was fresh as a tulip from Amsterdam, and despite now having racked up campaigns for Prada, Armani, Mulberry and Carven, she remains as fresh and angelic as ever.

Juliana Schurig

The ultimate ice-queen with eyes that look like melted glacier drops, 18-year-old New Jersey girl Juliana Schurig waited until she finished high school before hitting the international catwalks, and boy did she make it worth the wait: last fashion week she walked an impressive 33 shows across the four fashion cities. Her ultra-cool look and don’t-mess-with-me glare made her a perfect muse for our Spring Summer campaign. She’s also the star of Moschino’s spring summer campaign, her unmissable flaxen locks catching the light in a 60s beehive. We predict big things for this all-American girl – watch this space.
