If fashion models were made by other worldly beings with dark spells and swirling, glowing potions, they'd look something like the intoxicatingly beautiful Stella Lucia. Move over Lindsay Wixson and Lily McMenamy, this girl's got the fullest lips in fashion and a stare that would have you wrapped round her little finger in the no time. Born in the Austrian countryside, the 16-year-old stunner made her runway debut as a greyscale Miss Havisham-esque bride in GILES' spring/summer 15 show, before appearing in his fall/winter 15 show as a gothic, black-lipped bridesmaid. She became the face of Givenchy's Spring 15 campaign alongside Julia Roberts, to whom she bares a striking resemblance. Stella was discovered over Facebook at 13, is signed to Viva London, is in love with her stylist boyfriend and is the name on everyone's undoubtedly inferior lips…
