I ran into this girl’s face times before and had no idea who she was. Just recently, browsing for a picture of Uffie for hypestreet she was revealed to me and I of course got incredibly stuck. I mean, look at those traits and hair. Not to mention the eyes! Her look is, to me, an incarnation of Bat for Lashes meets Lilly Allen meets Cat Power. Perhaps that’s why she has the face and attitude of a indie rock singer.
Meghan Collison (born Meagan Collison, February 2, 1988) is a Canadian fashion model. Collison was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and was discovered at a local mall model search. At the age of eighteen, she moved to New York, and rose to prominence as one of the world’s top models, working internationally in the top fashion markets. Her big break came in October 2007, when she appeared on the cover of Italian Vogue, photographed by Steven Meisel. She has since done shows and advertisements for Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Anna Sui, H&M, Topshop, Swarovski, Valentino, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and other prominent fashion designers. She has also appeared in editorials in W Magazine, Pop, Dazed & Confused, i-D, and Italian, Russian, German, Japanese, French, British, and Chinese Vogue. In the S/S 08 runway season, models.com proclaimed Meghan as one of the “top ten newcomers” in New York, before the shows even began. [wiki]

I found tons of editorials featuring her on the net so I had to be really picky to squeeze only 2 in this post! I hope you enjoy.
Vogue Germany May 2009, Dream On.
She stands in the new line of contemporary models, with a mixture of styles that make her truly unique. She has a something of Irina Lazareanu, a little bit of Agyness and the sharp, yet soft edginess of Freja. In all these, she incorporates a modern vibe that jumps from classic to androgynous to super feminine. You people, we have a winner in the class of ’10! Just look at these:
