Francis Coombe, 21, is fast emerging as a model. Although she’s only been modeling for about 3 years, she has already assembled an extremely impressive track record in the modeling world.
This past fall Coombe took on her first stint in Milan. She walked in shows such as Moschino, Alberta Ferretti, Bottega Veneta, and Just Cavalli. Coombe says her heritage is half-Scottish and half-Canadian. Her father was actually adopted, so the Canadian part is just a guess on Coombe’s part.
Coombe has a stunning look, with big green eyes and pale freckled skin. She is currently represented by Muse Management and mostly does runway, walking for big name brands such as Marc Jacobs, Dior, Oscar de la Renta, etc. She has also been featured in Nylon, Glamour Italia, Harper’s Bazaar, and Self Service, even though she concentrates mainly on runway modeling.
Coombe landed the cover of WWD. The photograph is an exquisite close-up, as she walked in the Armani Prive Couture runway. She also participated in an interview with WWD, which was released this Tues., June 3.
When asked if she had ever considered being a model during her interview, Coombe answered, “I was always the tallest in my class. I didn’t really mind, I think it’s because I had a couple of other girls in my class who were also very tall so we kind of embraced each other. We would pose together in class pictures. I always thought I had the height to be a model, but I never really pictured myself as a model until I got scouted. Before I even wanted to model, fashion was kind of already on my radar. I’ve always loved arts. I used to dress my mom. She used to ask for my fashion advice when I was little.”
