Lineisy Montero has been blazing down the runways of all the biggest designers this season, and we absolutely adore her.
Her intense dark eyes and natural afro hair have ruled the catwalks of Prada and other major designers. Lineisy is definitely the model of the moment, she booked 17 shows at New York fashion week making her the number 4 most booked model at the New York Fashion Week and appeared on the runway for both London, Milan and Paris Fashion Week.
Lineisy Montero’s breakout show was Prada AW15. That was her first ever runway show and a career-making moment. She was discovered in an amusement park in her home town of Santo Domingo in the Dominican republic ‘on a roller coaster!’ and she is also an aspiring designer and hopes to own her clothing line after her modelling career. Small town girl Lineisy Montero had never been on an air plane before her first prada show.
One of Lineisy’s most loved features is her natural hair; she definitely loves her look and cuts her hair before every show. She told models.com ‘when I look in the mirror I love it!’ She is the Lupita of the modelling world, redefining beauty standards every step of the way and she agrees that if she were to cast someone as herself in a movie of her life, she’d cast Lupita Nyong’o.
Here are some of her looks from Fashion Week 2016.
Here she is when she isn’t on the runway.
