Runway success has been a long time coming for Ariel Meredith. The Louisiana native was discovered at a modeling expo in Dallas while still in high school. But this smart cookie had her priorities straight and decided to focus on finishing her studies before embarking on catwalking. Post graduation, Meredith spent a few years doing commercial modeling and then signed with Ford Models in 2008. She made her runway debut at Vera Wang last September. A week later, she was booked for the D&G runway in Milan and the label's spring ad campaign, shot by Mario Testino. And things haven't slowed down for the southern belle since. Meredith has upcoming spreads in V magazine by Will Davidson, French Revue de Modes by Thierry LeGoues, and even a television spot for Yves Saint Laurent's fragrance. But then again, are you surprised? With a face like that, we have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot more of this one.
