Hanna Sylla, was enjoying a fairly normal life until a chance encounter with a leading casting director changed things dramatically. According to The Telegraph, the 22-year-old was working as a cocktail waitress at Hotel Tremoille in Paris when she met Anita Bitton, the casting director for Miu Miu. The meeting resulted in Hanna making her runway debut at the brand’s Resort show on Sunday during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, joining models-of-the-moment Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.

Over on Instagram, Miu Miu proudly posted a photo of their latest muse on the catwalk. In the picture, Hanna looked fabulous in a navy blue long-sleeve jumpsuit, adorned with a collection of race inspired patches and teamed with a pair of sequin embellished heels, which showcased her seemingly never-ending limbs. Make-up wise, Hanna looked beautiful with a subtly glowy base and a vibrant red lipstick.

Kendall Jenner looked ultra-cool in her catwalk look

Also on the runway was Kendall Jenner, who looked fabulous in an oversized black studded blouse teamed with a pair of dove grey shorts featuring a tied-sleeve detailing, a pair of pumps with an oversized buckle and to accessorise, a monochrome bag. Kendall’s long, brown hair was tied up in a sleek up-do, while a smoky eye and bright red lipstick completed her look.

Meanwhile Bella Hadid stood out in a navy jumpsuit which featured a studded belt, which was teamed with a casual cool khaki jacket embellished in Miu Miu badges and a studded collar. A pair of green boots and a coordinating bag completed her look. Like Kendall, Bella’s hair was worn up in a top knot, which drew attention to her striking blue eyes.

Hanna’s catwalk appearance was observed by an array of A-listers, including Elle Fanning. The 19-year-old campaign star arrived in a striking pink sequin dress from the label’s Fall 2017 collection. Her gown was given added edge thanks to a plunging, jewelled neckline, and Elle finished the outfit off with strappy heels, a sparkly headband and a fake tattoo of the fashion house's logo on her neck.
