Amanda Googe says she’s “still figuring out” who she is. A little over a year ago, after graduating from Brown University with a double major in visual arts and environmental studies (just take a look at some of the illustrations she did for the school newspaper, the Brown Daily Herald), Googe made her runway debut as an exclusive at Prada’s F/W 2016 show. Shortly after, Steven Meisel photographed her for that season’s official campaign, and she began appearing in editorials for the likes of Pop and Interview.
