Walk this way: Bambi Northwood-Blyth makes her mark on Spring/Summer 2011

Frockwriter did say that there was buzz over Sydney It girl Bambi Northwood-Blyth heading into the Spring/Summer 2011 show season, with at least two casting directors (Ashley Brokaw and Kannon Rajah), talking her up. With New York Fashion Week now on the home straight, with three days to go, Northwood-Blyth has made a very respectable international debut. Four shows so far: Jen Kao, Rag & Bone, Joseph Altuzarra and overnight, Diesel Black Gold – which she in fact closed, quite an honour. Just a reminder that in modelling terms, 5’7” Northwood-Blyth is Lilliputian. For a clear illustration of just how petite she is compared to the regular runway amazons, see this backstage shot from Jen Kao, below. But she has a distinctive look – some might say, she resembles a young Lauren Bacall – and a very boyish physique. One thing she may need to work on however is her walk. Whether or not it's a matter of acclimatising to those often highly impractical runway shoes, there is something distinctly odd about it. Here are three of her show videos, below.
