Is Irene Kim the Next Instagram It Girl?

Elyssa Goodman

Korean model Irene Kim is the next it girl on Instagram to put on your radar. According to Vogue, Irene, 27, was born in Seattle, but moved to Korea three years ago after she spent time studying textile design at FIT in New York. She has since been in an original Stella McCartney fashion film, taken Seoul by storm at the Chanel Resort 16 show, and become well acquainted with the front rows of Michael Kors and Calvin Klein, among others. 

Irene is also currently the host of the well-known and well-loved Korean fashion television shows K-Style and Style Live, contributes monthly to our sister site, Byrdie, and was recently named a global beauty contributor to Estee Lauder. While working with the brand, she will create video content, cover trends, and possibly have input in product development. 

Irene is known for her ever-changing haircolor, which she told Vogue she changes whenever she's sad. It's become her signature, and her modelling agency has even asked her never to dye her hair back to its original black. We're sure this quirky, colourful model is one to watch.
