Oh So Yumi!

Yes, sometimes the I Love Belgium team feels like getting lost in the private lives and misadventures of the rich and famous. Yet when we opened the Daily Mail this week we stumbled upon the top ten SS13 new faces articles! And to our surprise, they were talking about Belgian "soon to be supermodel" Yumi Lambert.

They praised Yumi for her strong runway début which included fashion power houses such as Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Marchesa and Prada. They even compared Yumi with the half-Asian 90s supermodel Devon Aoki! Not really impressed by the knowledge of a Daily Mail journalist? Well, Brittany Adams of Style.com equally praised Yumi's first runway steps for Chanel, Missoni, Dior, Pucci and many others.

So what will make Yumi the next Belgian runway goddess? Many agree on the fact that her mix of Japanese and Belgian beauty are a match made in heaven! The perfect balance between Asian and Western genes. Or a suitable canvas to please the emerging Asian economies with a love for everything European?

Expect to see much more from Yumi as this 16 year old is taken the fashion scene by storm. We're already awaiting the first international campaigns!
