This is only Grace Mahary’s third season, but you just cannot miss noticing this Canadian-born model, who has been making quite a stir, on the new models fashion scene and especially during the period of fashion weeks. In case you didn’t know, modeling was never on this former pro-basketball player agenda (and we are talking almost 6 feet, or almost 180 in cm tall girl). So this originally Canadian, Alberta native girl had her sights set on a sports career, but when she got knocked in one of her teeth, during the basketball game, it all made her reconsider, on what her future career will be. And that is how the signing with Elmer Olsen Model Management happened, Canadian agency that is also responsible for Daria Werbowy’s start. So this young lady, now already 23 year old and former Ford Agency model, has signed with IMG, while she actually go discovered at 21, but had her big break only last year. And that is when she flew to Paris and met with Riccardo Tisci and got booked her first big show for Givenchy Fall Winter 2012/13 season and the rest is as they say, history. To complete this post, we’ve also found one really cool video presentation. So make sure not to miss it, right after you see our selection of Grace’s fave images – from the runway looks, street style and backstage, all shot during this past Fashion Weeks month. And as we always say, ENJOY!
