Katie Moore is the 18-year-old model from Houston, Texas, that the whole world is suddenly obsessed with. With her long blonde hair and piercing blue eyes, growing up she was everything you'd in wish for in your beautiful girl next door. That is, of course, until Guido Palau got out his magical scissors and chopped off her lovely long locks, cut them in into a punk inspired bob and dyed it copper orange, just in time for Alexander Wang to send her down his catwalk, fresh as a daisy, to open his autumn/winter 16 show. Just like with Kristen McMenamy, Agness Deyn, and Edie Campbell, the power of a haircut once again proves paramount in the making of a supermodel. Not only has walking for Wang elevated this elfin beauty onto a global stage, it's made her dreams come true. Speaking of dreams, one day she hopes to move into acting as well as continuing her craft as an accomplished indie-folk singer. She also plans on saving the world, and would like nothing other than for all human beings to be treated equally. In short, she's an angel. Curious for Moore?
