Last September Toronto native Kori Richardson debuted in Milan as an exclusive for the spring 2008
Jil Sander show. Days later she flew to Paris and snagged bookings for Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel’s runway shows. Though casting agents have been fawning over the 19-year-old for the past year, we only recently started swooning ourselves when we saw her Italian Vogue editorial in the September issue for the first time last week, shot by one of our favorite photographers, Paolo Roversi. The sleepy-eyed model evokes Greta Garbo in gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana suits and eveningwear in the black-and-white photos, which you can see in her model profile. And if that’s not enough Richardson for you, don’t miss her on the September cover of Dazed & Confused.
