It’s been a breakthrough year for model Emily Senko. The Chicago native made waves this past summer when she appeared in the resort shows for Calvin Klein and Oscar de la Renta. From there, she had a stellar spring 2011 season walking for noted design houses, including Chanel, Chloé, Proenza Schouler, Diane von Furstenberg, Topshop Unique, Haider Ackermann, Prabal Gurung, Costume National, Dries Van Noten and Graeme Armour (which she opened).  Propelled by an especially strong performance in Paris, Senko — with her cool gaze, full lips and charming personality — is positioned to stretch her hot streak into New York next season.

Since you’ve moved to New York from the Midwest, what do you miss about Chicago? What were your favorite hangouts there?
"I miss the snow. There is something so peaceful about the first Chicago snowfall. And during the summers I love to hang out on Lake Michigan."

Cubs or White Sox?
"Cubs, 100 percent! When I was growing up, my family had season tickets every year. Nothing better than a losing team."
