Once we digested Romeo Beckham’s dimpled smile and flawless moves, our attention moved to the golden girl of the moment – Hannah Dodd. With her flawless gold locks, cherry red lips and blissful elegance it’s no wonder she’s set off a spark of curiosity across the country. Hannah Dodd who is aptly studying a performing arts degree was signed by Select modelling agency at only 16. Working with brands such as Primark, Monsoon, Boden and Nivea haircare her appearance with Burberry is certainly a gleeful jump up, placing her on a pedestal in her modelling career.

“Dancing has always been a passion of mine from a young age.”  It’s only fitting that Hannah created a splash with this Burberry campaign through doing something she loves.

With her multifaceted box of talents the young dancer’s future looks bright. As if being in a Burberry campaign wasn’t enough Hannah will be enjoying the companionship of supermodel royalty Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss, the faces of ‘My Burberry’ fragrance campaign, as well as Suki Waterhouse who is the face of the beauty range.

At the moment Hannah is focused on finishing her degree but she does confess that “Being able to do the two things I love most – dance and model – for the Burberry campaign was a dream come true.” We can’t help but fall in love with this school girl and her grounded approach about future endeavours. For some it’s easy to get swept up in the glitz and glamour of the modelling industry but her decision to keep her options open is respectable.

With dancing, acting and modelling Hannah will potentially master the holy trinity of skills to drive her career in the creative industry.
