Jess Clarke for Vogue Japan, shot by Tommy Ton. (Click for larger.) All Images/via

It’d been a little while since I’d heard anything about Jessica Clarke – the 18 year old from Palmerston North and the only New Zealand model to ever score a Calvin Klein exclusive. She’d been a bit off my radar. I’m not gonna lie, all the hype around Emily Baker made me almost forget about her. Boy was I an idiot. The girl has done good. She’s just landed this amazing editorial for Vogue Japan’s September issue (and we all know how important the September issues are), and what’s more, it was shot by none other than one of the most successful streetstyle bloggers in the world, Tommy Ton.

In the spread, Jess dons a bunch of amazing colourful clothes (PS: how good is that top left outfit?!) and works her face in a way that I haven’t seen any New Zealand model do (and pull off) in a long time.

High fives for Jess!
