Model Crush Monday| Parisian Belle Aya Jones

 

One of our street style photographers first spotted Aya Jones outside  Prada, the first show she ever walked. He said he was in love with a new Parisian belle.  This little lady has legs for day’s, roots in the Ivory Coast and grew up in Paris.  The 21-year-old beauty was spotted on the Rue du Rivoli in Paris before being signed to The Lions in New York and going on to walk her first ever show as a Prada exclusive for spring/summer 15.  The New Comer Aya has already walked for Marc Jacobs, Prada, Miu Miu and Moschino, and appeared in Prada’s Pre-Fall 15 campaign, lensed by Steven Meisel and also starring Natalie Westling and Julia Nobis in her short career.  She is as nice and sweet as she looks.

Newcomer Aya Jones launched her career last the Spring 2015 season in Milan. Like us we took notice of Jones’ poise, 5’10” frame, gorgeous wide eyes, and pillowy lips.  The following week in Paris or street style photographers went bananas for the Parisian native. She is signed to the same agency  joined that includes industry vets Karen Elson, Veruschka, Jamie Bochert, and Guinevere van Seenus. Not bad at all for a new comer.
