About the Model
For some time now, American supermodel, Heidi Mount, has quietly been climbling her way to fame. Heidi began her modeling career in 2003, signing with Ford Models. Her career kicks off in 2003, after catwalking for some of the biggest names in Haute Couture and Ready-to-Wear including Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Viktor & Rolf and Christian Dior. Her debut on the international scene was in Yohji Yamamoto’s Spring 2004 collection. Her career jump started from there, posing for campaigns like Frankie Morello and Armani Jeans.
In 2007, she got married and took a break from modelling. Following the birth of her first child, her comeback has been enormous. She is seen on the catwalks of all the couture shows. Heidi returned to the modeling world in September 2007, signing with IMG Models. She returned to runways for the Spring 2008 season, walking for designers like Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney.
In 2008, the American beauty becomes the face of Armarni Jeans, Bally and Prada. But it was later (2009) when the model became the face of Chanel (succeeding Claudia Schiffer), that she got everyone talking. She also opened and closed its fashion show. She also embraced the Spring 2009 campaigns for Alexander McQueen, ckOne, and Gap. Elegant and charismatic, Mount embodies the classic and luxurious image of Chanel.
In an interview to the New York Times, Heidi said the inspiration for her career was supermodel Christie Brinkley. At Naomi Campbell’s Fashion For Relief runway show for The White Ribbon Alliance (to raise funds for mothers in Haiti), she modeled a Tracey Reese dress.
