#ModelCrushMonday: Sharnee Gates
I came across this face on the Select Model Instagram and WOW! I was just blown away by her angular, sharp bone structure that harmonise with freckles and that Bambi-limbed grace that comes with a typical New Face.
Sharnee Gates is a model from Australia with Burmese, English, Kurdish and Welsh descent. She entered a modelling competition aged 14, didn’t win but of course she got signed with a look like that. With a face that can relate to people globally mixed with the current generation’s knack for social media, I forsee really big things for Sharnee. I think she’ll follow in the footsteps of models like Binx Walton in having worldwide appeal as the ‘cool girl’, and lending her name and face to brands like Superga and Diesel.
She’ll also being doing all the couture shows and I have NO DOUBT there’ll be many Vogue spreads on the way. She can do edgy, editorial, dark looks as well as the more ethereal, wispy beauty you see in Italian Vogue.
Anyway – I think she’s got a look that not only stands out now, but that will translate in three, four, ten seasons time – Sharnee is no flash in the pan model, she’s the real deal.
I’m good at predicting these things!
