Aussie model better than Kendall Jenner

NSW teen Aleyna FitzGerald has bumped off "It" girl Kendall Jenner as the new face of Balmain.

After winning the most recent series of Foxtel's Australia's Next Top Model, FitzGerald has skyrocketed to international success having worked for Giambattista Valli, Saint Laurent and Valentino.

The Sydneysider is now the face of one of the hottest fashion houses in the world, Balmain, which gave Jenner her big catwalk break back at 2015 Paris Fashion Week.

"As you can imagine, it was an incredible honour. It all happened super-quickly too so it was also a surprise," the 17-year-old FitzGerald told Confidential.
