Julia Nobis is one of the most in-demand catwalkers of the season. Reason enough to take a closer look on her.

Season after season, she’s still managing to book the best shows. That’s pretty impressive. Julia Nobis isn’t just the stand-out Australian model of Spring 2014, but was booked for the third highest number of shows internationally. It’s sort of exhaustion-inspiring just looking at the list of 55 shows she walked this season, which included Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Lanvin, Dior, Givenchy, Chanel, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and Hermès.

Although Aussie Julia Nobis did not claim the third consecutive season title of walking the most runway shows, she definitely did not lose her booking power. Julia skipped London this season, but had she made a stop in London, we are sure she would have done it with a bang and added enough shows to her list to have walked the most shows. Julia proved that she is still in-demand as ever, having opened and closed the most shows out of any model this season. Out of the 62 shows she walked, she opened 6—Derek Lam and Narciso Rodriguez Angelo Marani, Roberto Cavalli, Vanessa Bruno and most newsworthy of all, Saint Laurent—and closed 8— Tory Burch, Diesel Black Gold, Reed Krakoff, Arise, Angelo Marani, Missoni, Dries van Noten and Vanessa Bruno. Not only was Julia the top catwalker of the season, she was also the top girl of NYFW and MFW by quality.
For Alexander McQueen’s resort 2014 collection, creative director Sarah Burton was inspired by 1940s, World War II era style with an outing of pale neutrals, strong blues and tawny browns. This season, there is a focus on the waist with crop tops, belting and cinched cotton jackets. Although Burton’s inspiration goes back to the factory girl days, the second half of the collection evokes 60s flower child with midriff baring tops, floral motifs, crotched detailing and patchwork denim.

Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz focused on looks for just about every occasion with the brand’s resort 2014 collection. With inspiration stemming from the Lanvin woman’s lifestyle, the transitional season offers a varied take on looks that go from day to night and in between. Resort sees a lot of embellishments covering rich jewel toned dresses or more girlish looks in the form of ballerina-inspired full tulle skirts. Adding to the adornment are rich brocades dipped in gold metallic hues. Elbaz also focuses on more understated dress with a few monochromatic looks evoking a cool minimal vibe.
