There’s something inherently refreshing about newcomer Marike Le Roux. Whether it’s her South African roots or the fact that she speaks fluent Korean, we are big fans of this one. After signing with Wilhelmina late last year, she debuted at some of the hottest spring shows, including Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Chloé, and Sonia Rykiel. The 18-year-old must have done something right on the runways, as she booked Sonia’s spring campaign, lensed by Horst Diekgerdes. And Marike’s not only getting noticed for her modeling abilities, but for her impeccable sense of style as well. She’s been featured on Vogue.com for her cool off-the-runway gear. We just love when a model is unfussy and effortless like Marike.
