And it’s not just anyone who’s calling this prediction: it’s premier fashion magazine, Vogue who said so.

Vogue, considered as the “bible” for and by fashion savants, has cemented many a supermodel’s status such as Tyra Banks, Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford and more, and recently heralded Gigi and Kendall as this generation’s supermodels. In short, Vogue taking notice of Rina is a pretty big deal!

Vogue says:

“Miu Miu’s star-studded casts are never short on top models, but even in the midst of Gigi Hadid and Anna Ewers, there are plenty new faces worth noticing. This season, Tokyo discovery Rina Fukushi joined Miuccia Prada’s runway girl gang, bringing an ultra-cool vibe and the kind of eye-catching beauty that makes casting directors sit up and take notice.”

Praised for her exotic beauty, Rina has already modelled for designers such as Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang.

The model, who is only 17, hopes to spend more time in New York after finishing high school next year.

A huge yes for Asian beauty!
