Before arriving on the scene as the new face for Balenciaga, Danish model and mother Emma Leth had been accumulating a steady plow of wins as a Danish journalist, actress, producer for Danish TV, and is now gearing up for the release of her documentary film on feminist art.

As a young 27-year-old mother, Leth was convinced her pregnancy would be the perfect way to venture out of modeling—but here’s the twist. After 3 months of giving birth to her son Abel, Leth was tapped to appear in Balenciaga’s Fall 2017 show, where Demna Gvasalia personally asked her to stay on. The heavy-hitting gig is already proving to skyrocket Leth's modeling career and Balenciaga is the ultimate foray back into fashion for the major-league model.
