Model Keke Lindgard (Wilhelmina) leads a double life: by day, shes strutting down the runway at Prada, Lanvin, and Valentino, by night shes studying for exams and skateboarding with friends. The sixteen year-old Hawaii native burst onto the scene last year, scoring a spot on Style.coms influential top 10 list of new faces. With her all-American surfer girl looks think beachy blond waves, a light dusting of freckles, and sun-kissed glow shes quickly become a favorite of legendary lensman Arthur Elgort. Here, Keke lets StyleCaster in on her greatest loves from waffles and Chanel, to surfing and swinging from trees.
