Peyton Olivia Knight is an American fashion model.
At age 11, Knight was discovered by Elite Model Management while leaving a movie theater with her mother; two years later she was signed to IMG Models.
While in high school, she worked in Tokyo for six weeks; after graduating early, she walked for Chanel in Rome and did a Gucci campaign. Her first job was an editorial for W photographed by Steven Meisel. Knight debuted as an Alexander Wang exclusive and like many models in that show she received a distinctive haircut from hairstylist Guido Palau.
In response to controversial comments by Kendall Jenner, Knight was one of many fashion models who spoke about how difficult fashion week is to maintain 30 or more shows while possibly not getting paid or being able to have meals.
Knight was chosen as a “Top Newcomer” by models.com, in 2015.
