Nina Porter is the sixteen-year-old north London schoolgirl who’s seduced the fashion world with her elfin beauty and boyish charm.
Best known as the face of Burberry, Nina’s cropped hair, well-defined cheekbones and striking green eyes quickly attracted attention. Nina was scouted at the age of fourteen whilst attending a Clothes Show event in London, and was swiftly signed by Select. Despite jet-setting around the globe, the conscientious youngster still finds time for schoolwork and gained six A* and five A-grades in her GCSEs last year. She is currently studying for her A-levels, and dreams of becoming a fashion designer one day. “I got my hair cut this way when I was thirteen,” she informs. “I just got frustrated with it being long, it’s more interesting. But I’m also quite lazy – I never put on much make-up either!”
