Lily Kwong is one of fashion’s newest “It” girls and models. She is a natural beauty with long black hair and flawless features, though she is so much more than a pretty face. Her father is Chinese and her mother is Irish and German, she speaks fluent French and has worked for designers including Christian Dior and Proenza Schouler. Not bad for a 23 year-old who is still a student at Columbia University.
One of Lily’s biggest accomplishments is having helped her cousin, Joseph Altuzarra start his line. Now, he has fans like Jennifer Lawrence and Karolina Kurkova. Lily was shot for Vogue’s July 2011 issue in which six “It” girls were profiled rocking the season’s hottest clutches. She is in a look from Givenchy’s Fall 2011 collection, as worn on Ruby Aldridge. When first viewing the collection, I thought it would mostly be suitable for a more conservative group of women, but it looks lovely on Lily.
