Ariel Merideth on Vogue.it

Ariel Merideth on Vogue.it: "

IMG model Ariel Meredith was recently interviewed by Bethann Hardison for Vogue.it. She dishes about her likes and dislikes, personal style, and fashion icons that inspire her. Also, check out Italian Vogue’s exclusive video of Ariel as well as a sampling of the interview!

Ariel comes from Shreveport, Louisiana. She is happy to be southern and loves what family brings. So she goes home every chance she gets. We first met backstage at a Vera Wang Spring collection.

Since Vera doesn’t use girls of color per se, I was surprised, not only had I not seen Ariel before, but she was perfect for designer collections. I complimented her and had hope to see more of her. Little by little I have.

Besides opening a show for Vera Wang, Ariel had an exclusive appearance for Louis Vuitton, worked for Sophie Theallet, Diesel and Dolce & Gabbana. Worked with Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier, Matt Jones, Arthur Elgort, Ben Watts, to name a few. Has appeared in V Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Marie Claire, Glamour and will appear on a upcoming cover of Italian Elle.
