The 25 year old Italian almost didnt make it to the fashion scene - she was rejected by Elite at age 19 (ouch...but I bet they are kicking themselves now) and was finally signed by IMG, after being discovered on the job in a supermarket. She is now married, as a daughter, and lives in New York. She's been on covers from L'Officiel to Playboy, and in campaigns for haute couture gods like Dolce and Gabbana, Cavalli, and Dior, as well as mere "civilian" brands like Mango, Victoria's Secret and Guess?
And you know what else? I don't think I've ever seen a spread with her in it where she actually had a top on.
Here are some photos to mull over, from the February 2010 Vogue Germany.
