Paris Fashion Week brought a lot of strange things: Chanel’s show channeled a visit to Whole Foods, Anna Wintour sat second row at Valentino, and Cara Delevingne and Joan Smalls danced down the runway at Stella McCartney.
But one thing that wasn’t a surprise was seeing Manuela Frey at many of the major shows. The 18-year-old Swiss model, who also took over the Cut’s Instagram account last month, walked in a total of 25 shows, bringing her to a whopping 63-show total for fashion month. Close behind was Maartje Verhoef from Supreme, who opened Hermès, Valentino, and Sacai and closed Alexander McQueen and Vanessa Bruno.
