Tali Lennox unveiled as the new face of Karen Millen

Tali Lennox is set to be the next big thing

Tali Lennox has been named as new face of Karen Millen’s spring/summer 2012 collection.

With her rock ‘n’ roll background and striking features, Tali Lennox embodies the ‘bold, confident’ woman that Karen Millen wanted to channel for their S/S 2012 collection.

The 19-year-old daughter of music legend Annie Lennox and Israeli film producer Uri Fruchtmann, decided to follow in her parents unconventional footsteps by dropping out of school before completing her A levels to take up modelling.

And it’s a risk that evidently paid off.

The 5’9′ beauty looks effortlessly cool in the stunning shots which feature’s this season’s tropical colours and bold prints.

Gemma Metheringham, creative director of Karen Millen said: ‘To sum up the mood of the season, it is upbeat and uplifting, and this is reflected in our new campaign.

‘Our collection has a lightness to it and, as this is the season of the separate.

‘We are encouraging our customers to create their own looks and style using our wonderfully versatile pieces.’

Tali already has a rather impressive modelling CV having walked for a number of fashion giants including Christopher Kane, Prada, Missoni, Miu Miu and Chanel, plus she’s featured in campaigns for Topshop and Burberry.

She previously explained her decision to venture into the fashion world, telling The Evening Standard: ‘I was never really the type who wanted to be at school.

‘I don’t believe in the pressure of having to follow a certain timeline,’ she said.

Adding: ‘It’s great when you’re doing a shoot and it’s something bizarre; you can feel really confident in a different character.’
