What is the BoF 500?

The BoF 500 is the definitive professional index of the people shaping the $2.4 trillion fashion industry, hand-selected by the editors of The Business of Fashion, based on hundreds of nominations received from current BoF 500 members, extensive data analysis and research.


Ushering in a new generation of supermodels, since 2014, Dutch model Rianne van Rompaey has booked campaigns and walked the runway for Louis Vuitton Prada and Coach, along with many more of the industry’s biggest brands. Distinguished by her eye-catching red mane, alabaster complexion and classical features, van Rompaey has graced the covers of some of world's most prestigious magazines and is ranked as one of the top 50 models of 2016 on Models.com.

Rompaey grew up in Wageningen, The Netherlands and attended RSG Pantarijn high school. At the age of 19, she was scouted by Amsterdam-based Paparazzi Model Management.

In her first major season she was exclusively booked for Nicolas Ghesquiere's debut Autumn/Winter 2014 collection at Louis Vuitton. Soon after, the fresh-faced model appeared on the 50th anniversary Vogue Italia cover shot by Steven Meisel , accompanied by Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Anna Ewers .

In the subsequent 2015 seasons a slew of high profile names, including Louis Vuitton, Coach and H&M hired van Rompaey for their campaigns. Working with the likes of Juergen Teller , Patrick Demachelier, and Jamie Hawkesworth , Rompaey has appeared on the covers of Vogue Paris, i-D, and Document Journal.

Impressively, in the Autumn/Winter 2016, van Rompaey rebooked many of her major campaigns, including Prada, Louis Vuitton and Coach — making her one of the most recognisable faces of recent seasons, and one of the brightest stars in her generation of models.
