Prada Resurrects Gemma Ward for Milan Fashion Week, SS15


The day has come! At approximately 12:46 p.m. EST something magical happened on the Prada runway: Gemma Ward.



The Australian model (who quit the business in 2008) strutted out onto Prada's sandy runway in a long coat and literally shocked the entire Fashionista office (and probably everyone else watching the livestream or at the show). Since leaving the business, Ward has appeared in films like "The Black Balloon" and "The Great Gatsby" and also had a child. From the look of things, she wasn't coming back to modeling any time soon... but if anyone could persuade her to take to the runway again it's Miuccia Prada and casting director Ashley Brokaw.


Not only does Ward's appearance solidify the fact that models are making their return to the spotlight (look no further than Vogue's September cover or the major models who walked in other SS15 shows, like Abbey Lee Kershaw, Kristen Owen, Maggie Rizer or Lara Stone, who closed the Prada show, for proof), but it's also probably about to put an end to the stunt casting that dominated New York runways. I mean, who really cares which runways celebrity spawn models walked when Gemma Ward is back in the game?
