And industry experts predict she could be earning five times that in just a few years.

She has been spotted wearing everything from edgy labels such as Miu Miu, JW Anderson and Richard Quinn to global brands including Valentino and Chanel.
And from being a complete unknown a few months ago, Emma has been on the covers of top-end fashion mags including Vogue, Glamour and Vanity Fair.
