Lyndsey Scott: First Black Model to Score Calvin Exclusive

Lyndsey Scott at Calvin Klein.

Last night's Calvin Klein opener and closer, Monika Jagaciak, isn't the only model who can now bask in the label's immaculate light. Lyndsey Scott became the first model of color to score an exclusive with the brand that's usually known for a white-and-whiter runway cast. Just to put it in perspective: Scoring an exclusive for Calvin is like being picked Model MVP — it immediately launches your career and elevates your status. Just look at the stats: Previous openers include Anna Selezneva, Toni Garrn, Ali Stephens, Natalia Vodianova, and Jessica Miller, all of whom went on to successful runway careers. It makes us wish that it was Lyndsey who scored the opening and closing slots, instead of being tenth in line. But there's always next season for that.
