She may be a mere 19 years old, but Guadalajara native Mariana Zaragoza is a constant presence in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, thanks to her gig as una modelo de moda—that is, a top runway model who counts Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, and Chanel as regular clients. (As the story goes, the late Karl Lagerfeld froze when she walked into a couture casting, pulling her from the crowd of other hopefuls to immediately start fittings.)

Despite her frequent travels, Zaragoza chose to spend this season staying relatively local, graduating from high school, hanging with her pet pigs (really!), and appearing as the official face of Fashion Week Mexico City—all while cooking and baking her way through Instagram.
