Revisit Gemma Ward’s Most Memorable Runway Moments of the Mid-Aughts

Stephane Cardinale – Corbis

For a significant stretch of the 2000’s, it seemed impossible to pay any attention to fashion without stumbling upon—or even being bombarded with—images of the model Gemma Ward, who was still in her early teens when heralded as her era’s very own Kate Moss. Almost immediately after making her international runway debut at just 15 years old, at the personal request of Miuccia Prada, Ward was soon both showcasing her “alien,” “otherworldly” side for designers like Alexander McQueen as she was at playing the all-American blonde for others, like Tommy Hilfiger (never mind that she’s Australian). By 2008, Ward had proved herself to be such an accomplished chameleon that, to the industry’s crushing disappointment, she crossed over into acting, unintentionally beginning a hiatus from the industry that lasted—aside from cameos for (who else?) Prada—until this year. In celebration of Ward’s return to modeling, which you can read about here exclusively, revisit her best moments on the catwalk for McQueen, Prada, John Galliano, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and practically any other designer you can think of, here.
