British model Leomie Anderson, model, blogger and Snapchatter.
The South London young lady, whose parents hail from Jamaica snapchats and blogs on and off the runway. In between her Vbloging, Snapchat rants and modeling gigs she is just a girl who loves life and lives it to the fullest. In between flights to NYC, Leomie had the time to tell us what’s going on in her world and to find out what she’s been up to. It is funny to watch her snaps where she compares New York life to London and agrees that Europe is the place to be these days.
The year 2016 has had many highlights for the model with the first Victoria’s Secret show and more. We first spotted her many moons ago backstage at New York and London’s fashion weeks and wonder who’s that girl! She has already been compared to her own modeling heroes.
Definitely walking for Victoria’s Secret but being a part of YEEZY season 1 and 2 was also very epic for me as a Kanye fan.
What was your first memory of fashion?
Leomie Anderson: Definitely watching music videos on MTV, I especially loved TLCs wardrobe and Destinys child ‘Survivor’ camo looks! I generally loved women in hip hop and R’n B looks in the 90s.
How were you discovered?

LA: Definitely walking for Victoria’s Secret but being a part of YEEZY season 1 and 2 was also very epic for me as a Kanye fan.

Favorite designer? To work for?
