So, some of you might be wondering how this happened, but Ashley Smith is my fourth favorite model of 2010. Yes, that's right, I voted her above Lara Stone.
Throughout 2010, Ashley tended to be in edgy and fun editorials. I don't think there was one editorial that I didn't like with her in it.
While Ashley lacked the coverage that many of the other models I picked got, I think we are going to be seeing a lot more of her in 2011. She did score a few covers and an ad campaign for Sisley by Terry Richardson.
She is definitely the Lara Stone prototype, but in some ways I think she is prettier because she has a more feminine face than Lara. But mainly I voted her above Lara because she is so new and young, and I don't think we've seen all this 19-year-old Texan has to offer.
I am excited to see how her career unfolds in 2011.
