Here we go - last but not least of our Paris Spring/Summer16 meetings. We are happy to introduce Cayley King for Models in the Raw. A new-face at the time we met, she can count some nice appearances under her belt by now, including editorials in Vogue Italia and British Vogue and gracing the February cover of German Harper's Bazaar! Glad we could share a moment at the very beginning of her career, we can't wait to see where she goes from there. Enjoy this new exclusive feature!

Cayley, as we met, you've just got sky-rocketed into a runway debut as a Versace exclusive. Not too long ago you were still busy finishing high school. Do you ever have to pinch yourself?

Do I ever have to pinch myself? Sometimes...

What has been the best part of your journey as a model so far?

The best part of my journey so far has been the friends I have made. I wouldn't be enjoying myself as much as I am without having them by my side along the way.

So, have you already found a squad of fellow models to share the good (and maybe even the less good) times of fashion week with?

Haha... Yes I've met some of my best friends doing this. We share it all...

Having been on the go for a while and no matter how exciting the ride may be, are you often looking forward to being back home?

I always look forward to being home and spending time with my family. Even if I was there a week ago.

Where you ever afraid you might loose track of places and people in your life, as you started out? How have you been keeping in touch with home since?

Facetime is a life saver. I can keep in touch with my whole family. I've never been afraid of not talking to them. I always talk to them.

Being an Indiana girl, what is “very Indiana” to you?

Very "Indiana"... Cornhole.

What makes you feel alive?

Nothing makes me feel more alive than a good laugh with my friends.

Perfect fun is...

any board game with your friends or family.
