Model of the moment Taylor Hill has been unveiled as the face of high street giant Topshop's Autumn/Winter 2016 campaign.
The US model was shot by photographer Giampaolo Sgura for the grungy campaign, set in New York. Styled by Topshop Creative Director Kate Phelan, Hill can be seen reclining in front of the city's skyline in a semi-sheer polka dot dress and studded, embroidered leather jacket from the brand's fall collection.
🎉 Introducing: @taylor_hill 🎉 She was the girl next door from Colorado, scouted at 14 on her local ranch. But now she's set for fashion stardom - transforming herself from a fresh new face to #Vogue cover star, Victoria's Secret Angel and the face of our AW16 campaign. Chatting behind-the-scenes on the shoot Taylor told us, "It feels really cool to be Topshop's campaign girl, I never thought I'd do campaigns, especially not for Topshop. I'd always see the big models doing it and never thought I would, but here I am!" #Topshop #AW16 #TaylorHill #TopshopStyle #NewYork
Hill also stars in a short film to promote the new line, sharing the screen with her dog Tate. The 'A Day in the Life of' clip sees the pair exploring New York, with the model wearing a variety of laidback pieces including a leopard-print jacket, a cropped hoodie, gold ankle boots, a silver puffa jacket, red cigarette trousers and shimmering blue stilettos.
The news is further proof that Hill is becoming a major player in the modeling world. Earlier this month the 20-year-old hit the headlines when she landed the role of ambassador for the French beauty house Lancome, and as a member of the exclusive Victoria's Secret Angels club her star has been on the rise for some time. But she is also no stranger to high fashion, and has posed for Jimmy Choo, Miu Miu, Michael Kors and Juicy Couture among others.
I am so excited and happy to announce that I will be joining the Lancôme family as their newest face!!! This an amazing day and I cannot believe one of my biggest dreams has come true!! Thank you so much to everyone at Lancôme for believing in me and having me apart of your amazing family ❤️🌹 @lancomeofficial #lavieestbelle #Lancome
Hill is following in the footsteps of fellow US model Gigi Hadid, who was named as the face of Topshop's last Autumn/Winter collection in 2015.
