Model of the Month: Nia @ Select

This post comes as the first of a brand new monthly feature called Model of the Month (creative title, I know). Each month I will be personally selecting my pick of the hottest new talent in the industry. Be it male or female, each month one lucky model will receive the title 'Model of the Month' and be worshipped in the FYI BLOG hall of gorgeousness - I'm sure they're already queueing up to be honoured with such a prestigious title....

So, without further a do let me introduce this months Model of the Month, Nia @ Select. Now I do have a small confession to make (for which I have already said my 3 'hail coco's). Nia is a very close friend of mine and so I do have a slight underlying personal interest in making her my MotM. However, I thought what better way to kick of a new feature than with a close friend, bros before hoes after all!

Personal friendship aside, I really do believe that Nia is one of the HOTTEST new faces to hit the industry. But don't just take my word for it. Nia has featured in campaigns for Babycakes, presentations for Orla Kiely and editorials in I-D and Test magazine.

I absolutely ADORE the Test Mag editorial (photos 4-6). I'm a complete sucker vintage style and photography and from these shots it's not hard to tell why. Styled by Lyson Marchessault and photographed by Nicholas Lawn, I really believe these looks encompass the aesthetic of the era, not to mention the fact that Nia looks truly gorgeous.

As some of you may be aware, I have been known to dabble in a spot of photography myself and I've previously had the pleasure of shooting Nia for myself. Now, I'm no Marino Testino or Annie Leibovitz but here are some of the shots I've taken of Nia in the past:
