Does wearing nothing but a feather-light, mini tulle corset dress in nippy 6 deg C weather faze Carly Moore? (This happened on this shoot.) Not one bit.

It’s not just that she’s a seasoned pro, having stomped the runways of all four major fashion capitals in the three or so years that she’s been on the modelling scene. Or that she’s 25 – mature by industry standards, she was discovered in her last year of university. Or that she’s from Toronto, Canada. This former business accountancy graduate is simply cool.

Her easy-going, collected demeanour and matter-of-fact tone only add to the appeal of her steely beauty: alabaster skin, piercing green eyes, a chiselled nose and cheekbones, all framed by a thick, lustrous brown mane. V magazine loves her. Ditto cult fashion publications like Muse and Self Service.

Add her height (1.81m) and gait (part gangly, part insouciant), and she’s become a catwalk hit with all the forward-thinking designer heavyweights. Dries van Noten, Hermes and Celine have all cast her – some multiple times. And she’s a firm favourite of Louis Vuitton and Gucci – she’s been in practically every one of their shows since the former’s Resort 2016 Palm Springs presentation, and the latter ushered in Alessandro Michele.

In fact, they’re the only brands she’ll walk for these days. “I don’t do Fashion Week now. It’s too tiring… But I’ll do Gucci and Louis Vuitton,” she says with a slightly self-deprecating smirk.
