The Cara Delevingne's debuts on the Fashion scene a few years ago opened the way to a brand new generation of models. They are not necessarily the most beautiful, the tallest or the most perfect but they are definitely the coolest and the most naturally stylish. Some kind of girls next door who are anything but Barbie dolls, only natural and boyish. Here are two of our favourite girls of the moment, two girls you want to be friend with, two girls who know how to rock the fashion world by bringing a brand new beat to this perfectly well-oiled machine!

Binx Walton is called by I-D Magazine "The Future Face of Fashion" and she is definitely the Sensation of the season. She is tall, androgynous (even if she has an awesome body) and loves football. What can we say more? Even if she has a strong personality, she is like a blank canvas where designers and fashion houses can express the message they want to spread. This is completely the trademark of the most amazing models. When you see her, you know this is Binx Walton but at the same time, she is like a chameleon when it comes to expressing a collection. For instance, while Daria Werbowy is the Celine woman par excellence (she has embodied her since 2011), it seems natural and not out of place at all to see Binx in the SS14 campaign of this Luxe Plus Plus brand. This collection was fun, playful with a strong street touch and here, Miss Walton was the street backing. This season, she is the Face of several brands (we can't wait to see if she'll be again in the Celine ads!) and the least we can say is that with such big names on her résumé, she'll be here for a while! We are sure that starring in the same ad campaigns as Cara Delevingne for Chanel and Balmain (not too bad!) will open her more and more doors. She is also one of the fresh faces of Coach for its new direction under Stuart Vevers. Fresh really is one of the best adjectives to qualify her and we're sure that soon her name will be on everyone's lips and girls will start playing football just like girls started to skate and wear caps after Cara's breakthrough.

Natalie Westling is the other girl we really love this season. We can remember how her look on the MBMJ runway back in September struck us. She looked like a fierce NewGen Ninja Turtle you don't want to mess with and at the same time, someone you definitely want to know more about. Just like Binx, she is an American girl and just like her, she is more into physical things than sitting and staying pretty. When she was asked by I-D magazine (Pre-Spring 2014) "What do you think of when you first wake up in the morning?" she simply answered "I wake up and I go skate or fool around on my drums", perfect to describe this girl who just like a teenage little sister has an air of defiance and rebellion on her face. She is so cool that it is almost beyond cool and a new word should definitely be found out. She started her career in magazines with such ads as Saint Laurent or Marc Jacobs along with Miley 'Long Tongue' Cyrus where her particular face gave meaning to melancholia and a kind of teenage disenchantment. This season, she has been chosen by McQ to be the face of their new collection under the lens of Karim Saldi and once again, there is a kind of sadness making these pictures really touching and intimate. In the same interview for I-D she answered to "Where do you see yourself in five years?" by saying that she would like to still be modelling, we are pretty sure that she doesn't need to worry.
