Blonde model who landed a contract after winning

Some Fashion Weeks turn out a few breakout stars - new faces that seem to suddenly pop up on every runway, hopping from big-name show to big-name show. And this Fashion Week, one of the biggest breakout stars is undoubtedly Jessie Bloemendaal. Jessie, 20, became a runway regular virtually overnight. Last year, she was just another pretty girl living in the Netherlands, posting pretty selfies online - and this season she"s walked in some of the hottest shows of New York Fashion Week. According to Vogue, everything changed after Jessie won an Instagram contest run by Micha Models, after which she signed a contract and pretty quickly started landing gigs with the biggest designers.
