Emerging faces: Mikaela

If the cinematic or literary worlds were to get a hold of Mikaela, we can only begin to imagine the roles she’d be cast in. She’s The Neverending Story‘s Childlike Empress. She’s every young fairytale beauty that Hans Christian Andersen ever penned.

Mikaela exudes a childlike innocence; the kind that only comes from having deep pools for eyes and a complexion like a flawless blank canvas. A fresh face at Vivien’s Model Management, Mikaela posed for the lens of Kelly Defina, offering up an gamut of expressions from mellow to cheeky to softly hypnotic.
