In December 2010, the magazine dubbed Clauson a “Model of the Moment.” The piece begins as follows:
Discovered by Ford Models in 2009, fifteen-year-old Hailey Clauson is hitting her stride. The All-American girl with a pout to remember caught our attention at the Spring 2011 collections in Milan and Paris, walking in big-name shows like Gucci and Lanvin.
Today, Harper’s Bazaar digital fashion/features director Kerry Pieri is showcasing Clauson through the filter of “My Life in 3 Looks.” No surprise that the SoCal native looks equally stunning in Gym Gear, Weekend Brunch and A Night Out on the Town attire. In the accompanying Q&A, Clauson recalls some of her standout career moments:
“I did a Louis Vuitton show in Paris one year and I came out of a elevator and Kate Moss closed the show with a cigarette in her mouth, just amazing. There’s a photo of me that day photobombing Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, Carmen Kass and I think Anja Rubik and it’s me, a 16-year-old girl in the background [laughs].”
We searched online for that photo, but couldn’t find. If anyone has a link to it, please let us know and we’ll add it below.
