Natalie Westling isn't like any other model. Sure, she's fronted campaigns for Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Celine, and Tom Ford; and yes, she's got over 46,000 followers on Instagram. But unlike the Kendalls and Caras of today's generation, this flame haired Arizonian beauty is far more comfortable away from the camera, doing things she loves the most. 

Trading the catwalk for the skatepark, Natalie's love of skateboarding can be traced back to when she was only three years old. She's so committed to the sport, she got the word "skate" tattooed in graffiti writing on her left arm, while her right arm is inked with the Vans logo. That's why her being named an ambassador for Vans' Sk8-Hi shoe silhouette campaign -- alongside skate and music legends Steve Caballero, Syd Tha Kyd, Lizzie Armanto, Henry Rollins, and Wade Goodal -- celebrating the brand's 50th anniversary is so dope. Natalie and Vans are a marriage made in half pipe heaven.
