Looking at Sarah Brannon’s list of achievements, you would never know that the Memphis-born model has only been working in the fashion industry for two years. Ranked among the “Top 50 Models” by Models.com, Brannon has already appeared in campaigns for Alexander Wang, Carven, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Philipp Plein, Sportsmax and, of course, Chanel. “Growing up, I always wanted to be a model. I was always that weird girl in school. I was always made fun of; I was never that beautiful,” Brannon told us when she interviewed Koché designer Christelle Kocher last year. “I’m living my dream now and it’s amazing … designing, modeling, it’s art and it’s almost like people have lost sight of that.”
