At just 21, Ashley Smith has been hailed as the second coming of Lara Stone. She’s landed numerous magazine covers and popped up in ad after ad; Smith was just named the new perfectly pouty face of Diesel’s fragrance, Loverdose, and this week, we’ve spotted her front row at Helmut Lang and getting her party on at LOVECAT’s rock n’ roll bash. Luckily, we managed to sneak in a chit-chat with the model-on-everyone’s-radar.
