Born-and-bred New Yorker Camille Mervin Leroy has that certain mysterious, can’t-put-your-finger-on-it charm — and she’s only 14. The ingenue debuted at Rad Hourani’s fall show this past February and popped up in the designer’s video presentation for his collection. Her agents have kept a tight hold on her to avoid overexposure (she is only 14, after all), but she made a surprise appearance this July at Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture show. Mervin’s long, flowing red hair contrasted with her ethereal face (which reminds us of a young Guinevere van Seenus) made her stand out in the sea of cookie-cutter girls that dominates the runways today. And post-shows, the statuesque opera fanatic (yes, opera) enjoys hitting the sofa and knitting the night away (she is 14, after all). —James Lim
