Another Saint model is blazing a trail of success across the globe. Her name is Samantha 'Sam' Taylor. In January, she was the only Caribbean model walking in the exclusive couture shows in Paris, strutting for designer Eric Taibusch.

Over the last three weeks, the cover and pages of fashion glossies and e-zines have been graced by the five foot 10-inch Jamaican beauty. The first news came from Paris when she appeared on the pages of Dirty Glam Magazine in an editorial shot by photographer Gilad Sasporta chanelling the glamour of a femme fatale. Last week she landed the cover of e-zine fantasticsmag.com shot by New York photographer Sean P Watters.

And, Austrian fashion glossy C-Heads, featured Sam in an 8-page spread shot by Anna Thiessen.

Sam is represented by Muse (New York), Angels (Paris) and D1 Models (London).

Sam has already earned global fashion accolades when she was named among the top black fashion models in the world by Tarce Magazine in their Black Girls Rule Issue. She has been named World Model Of The Week' by leading fashion industry ratings website models.com.

Winner of the 2005 Fashion Face Of The Caribbean title and originally from Fletchers land. "Sam's career is developing along a strategy for the long term and this way she is not overexposed" explains Saint CEO Dewight Peters. This September Sam is scheduled to do London Fashionweek and Paris Fashionweek only. She is also on option for major assignments for South Africa.
