Jamaican model Kai Newman of the Caribbean modeling agency Saint International has earned a spot on the coveted models.com’s — The Hot List.
According to the Observer, Newman is referenced as “a stunning Jamaican beauty with presence on and off the runway — a photographer’s dream and a designer’s too.
Campaign work for Tommy Hilfiger and Kenneth Cole cement her mass appeal, while recurring appearances for Lanvin, Hermes and Isabel Marant show how much fashion loves Kai”.
CEO Saint International Dewight Peters whose leggy belles have had quite an extraordinary year walking the runways from New York to Paris and wearing major labels was delighted with the news.
“Our models are proud ambassadors of their beloved country and continue to work hard — giving of their best, in what is undoubtedly a super competitive industry,” said Peters.
It’s no easy feat to make the list. According to models.com:
