I spotted Julia Nobis in the recent Resort 2011 look books. She fitted perfectly into idea of edgy at Alexander Wang same as into ladylike and preppy at Richard Nicoll and Peter Jensen. Natural blond hair and porcelain skin, you might think this is another Nordic beauty but the blonde doll is actually Sydney native. Nobis, discovered at the age of 15, to take modeling bit seriously waited to finish high school. Then happened the bang- walks Calvin Klein F/W show as an exclusive. The Cut called Aussie newcomer London’s Top Model and besides she walked numerous catwalks this season, she also was opener at Topshop Unique and closer at Richard Nicoll. Not to mention bookings on RAFW. She is signed with Priscillas and Elite and appeared in editorials for Russh, Amica, i-D Magazine and both Italian and British Vogue. Outstanding beauty, according to Vogue UK will be new face of New Zealand’s footwear label Beau Coops.
Most 17-year old girls would probably hyperventilate just of thought of own face in Vogue but Julia seems cool with that. “When I have money I treat myself to more and more extravagant chocolates and biscuits, but if worst comes to worst I always have my guitar top fall back on. Strange that chocolate can be substituted by music,” said Julia in interview for summer issue of i-D Magazine. And music she obviously adores; her style icon is Kurt Cobain and playing the guitar is her surviving tool for breaks between the shows. The tall beauty is very simple when it comes to fashion, so as personal style considers Jeans, baggy T-Shirts, leather jacket and Doc Martens.(Vogue Italia)
Julia will turn 18 at June 27th so misslikey is wishing her very happy birthday and successful next season. Surely it will be.
