Riley Montana is counting her blessings. The 22-year-old Detroit native, repped by New York Model Management, got her big break when she was cast in Givenchy’s spring campaign and pre-fall look book. “Riccardo [Tisci] took a chance on me,” she said. “I was brand new. He supports diversity and I love that about him. He doesn’t care about what people think.” Since then, the New York-based newcomer has scored editorials in W, Vogue Paris, V, Harper’s Bazaar U.K., i-D, Love, Numéro and CR Fashion Book.
Here, Montana talks about her idols Naomi and Kate, her Instagram addiction and meeting Anna Wintour.
This weekend I was so honored to share the stage with my Kapwa Modern family & get fourth place at Prelude Midwest! So many great things happened this weekend because of these guys. We’ve all grown so much & I’m proud <3
