Palvin, who turns 22 in October, has been turning heads ever since she was 13. She was discovered while walking down a Budapest street in her native Hungary. At five-feet, nine-inches tall, she was hard to miss.
She’s been the toast of Europe ever since, with editorials in L’Officiel, Vogue Russia, Marie Claire Italy, Glamour Hungary and Jalouse magazine.
But her career took a star turn in 2012 at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York City. Bieber couldn’t take his eyes off her and was spotted flirting with her.
They hit the town the following day to catch a Broadway show with friends, and that’s all it took to fire up the tabloids. At the time, Bieber was still dating Selena Gomez.
But Palvin was too classy to get caught in that tabloid trap. She quickly made it clear she was not dating Bieber, and never looked back.
She debut at Milan Fashion Week at 16 in an exclusive for Prada during Milan Fashion Week. She’s also walked for Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Nina Ricci, Emanuel Ungaro, Christopher Kane, Julien MacDonald, Jeremy Scott, Vivienne Westwood and Etro.
For her L’Officiel spread, she was photographed by Nadine Ottawa and styled by Vanessa Cocchiaro in designs by Ralph Lauren, Fendi, Prada, Gucci an other designers. Anthony Preel handled makeup an Rachel Bredy still Barb’s hair.
