Model moments: meet the runway stars who are taking over YouTube

When model of the moment Karlie Kloss announced earlier this month that she was starting a YouTube channel called Klossy, it sparked much debate about whether or not YouTube was a viable source for models to gain exposure. 

While social media sites such as Twitter and Instagram are great for getting your name out there, it seems YouTube offers them a more unique outlet of expression. 

So we did our own digging around – finding a few amazing models just like Karlie who have their own YouTube channels.

Read on to meet the models of YouTube


Ruth Crilly

Between all the makeup for fashion shows and photo shoots over the years, models practically become beauty experts. Ruth Crilly's experience in front of the camera led her to start her own YouTube channel dedicated to product recommendations. You will see her sampling countless products from perfumes, to lipsticks and moisturisers. This girl knows her stuff!


Taylor, Logan and Mackinley Hill

The Hill sisters started their YouTube channel to document their journey from high school students to top models. With Taylor tapped to be the next Victoria's Secret Angel and sister Mackinley following shortly behind her, the sisters have charted every moment via their online channel. They also take time to answer questions from aspiring models. 


Alexandra Elizabeth and Harleth Kuusik

Alexandra Elizabeth was on YouTube well before she became a model but initially she focused more on dance than fashion. Now that she's on the runway she captures all the moments with fellow model Harleth Kuusik. From all the backstage chaos and international travel that comes hand-in-hand with their job, this channel gives you some great insight to the world of a top model.


Dauphine McKee

This blonde beauty gives a little bit of everything on her YouTube channel from modelling advice to make up reviews and even the occasional song cover. A medical degree is also on the horizon for Dauphine so expect to see a lot of health and fitness reviews coming along soon.
