Modern model business is moving further and further away from the standardized concepts of beauty that have been forming over the years. One of the models of the new wave, bringing a fresh look to the industry, was Megan Collison, who has not the most ordinary appearance.
Megan, originally from Canada, was born in 1988 in the city of Edmonton. From birth, the girl possessed coarse facial features that, in some angles, are a bit like men. The future model was noticed by Kelly Straight, representing Mode Models agency, and this happened at a local mall.
At the age of 18, Megan moved to New York, and her career reached a level where the best fashion magazines expressed a desire to cooperate with the girl. In October 2007, she appeared on the cover of Italian Vogue, and her photographer was Stephen Meisel himself. Over time, the model has managed to work with such famous brands as Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, H & M, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Swarovski.
In 2008, Collison deserved an honorable place in the top ten “new” models according to models.com, and in April 2017 she won the “Model of the Year” award. Throughout her career, Megan has appeared on the cover of Italian Vogue 7 times, which is the best proof of her success.
At the end of 2010, Megan tried herself in the role of a movie actress, her debut role in the movie “Somewhere.” However, while the career in the world of cinema, the girl did not continue.
Due to the unusual appearance, Megan was almost accidentally noticed and became one of the most sought-after models. The future star of the covers probably couldn’t think about such a success, but her way clearly demonstrates that nowadays it’s fashionable not to be stereotyped, but to appreciate her individuality, including in appearance.
