Stella Maxwell is the quiet achiever of the New Zealand model fraternity currently based abroad. She may not be the face of D&G, or have clocked up any catwalk miles for Calvin Klein or Lanvin, but there are two sides to the modelling game. First you have your girls like Jessica Clarke, who make headlines booking high profile designer ad campaigns and shows. But on the flipside, there are the girls like Stella Maxwell, who work day in and day out, shooting catalogues, lookbooks and High Street brand campaigns, and make an absolute killing in the process. Rumour has it that Maxwell was Viva's highest earning new face model of 2009, and this year, things haven't appeared to slow down any. From lookbooks for Ermanno Scervino to Karl Lagerfeld's eponymous line, and recurring campaigns for French retail giant Naf Naf, Maxwell is fast becoming a brand in her own right. Her latest coup – the cover of Elle Belgium, plus a 16 page editorial inside. GO THE KIWIS!
