Barbara Palvin, the Hungarian model who caught Justin Bieber’s eye at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show a few years ago, is as stunning as ever in a new photo spread for Paris magazine L’Officiel. She’s a siren of summer.

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.
