Paris Fashion Week Model Photo Diary: Lara Mullen


It’s been a whirlwind year for Brit model Lara Mullen, who had never walked in a pair of heels before she was discovered by Premier model agency at a music festival in her hometown of Northampton just weeks before her smashing debut at the Spring shows back in September. Flash-forward a few months, and now the 17-year-old has rubbed elbows with Gisele, starred in ad campaigns for Maje and Topshop, covered recent issues of i-D and Dazed & Confused, and has an editorial shot by Josh Olins in the latest British Vogue. Fall proved to be a killer sophomore season for Mullen, who walked the top-tier runways, including Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Prada, and Calvin Klein. With the help of her agents, Mullen kept track of her Paris fashion week experiences for Check out her snaps from the week, below.

“I’ve just arrived in Paris, and my lovely chaperone Julie, who showed me all of the sights in the city, took a snap of me waiting for the Métro. I really love the contrast of the black-and-white picture behind me with the colorful seats. Shame she missed the bubble I was about to blow with my gum!”

“In full hair and makeup after Dries Van Noten, en route to the next show. I’m wearing a tweed Marc Jacobs jacket with a scalloped detail that I was given after his show this season.”

“With the girls [Katlin Aas, Marte Mei van Haaster, and Maria Bradley] backstage at Gareth Pugh! I felt fierce walking at that show.”

“What I enjoy most about the shows is seeing the endless hair and makeup possibilities. Here I am backstage at Nina Ricci, embracing my inner screen siren!”

“Backstage buddies, at Cacharel, with fellow Brit model Cara Delevingne.”

“School’s out! We’ve just finished Louis Vuitton on the final day of the Paris shows, and to me it feels like the last day of school before the holidays—although in my case I will be returning to my textbooks at college!”

“Catching up on some much needed sleep at my French agency Oui. I’m using my book as a pillow, which is surprisingly comfortable.”
