Lorena Rae was swept up in a tabloid whirlwind when she was spotted on the arm of actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who has an eye for fetching models. But Rae is more than a twinkle in DiCaprio’s eye. She’s fearless and making inroads in New York fashion circles. It’s easy to see why.
Rae, 23, grew up in Germany but you would never know it. She now lives in New York City and taught herself to speak English without a German accent.
“I was never really a fan of the German accent,” she explained in an interview last year with her agency, Next Model Management. (See Below)
“I would try to watch all my series like ‘Vampire Diaries’ and ‘Gossip Girl’ in English, which taught me very much. Plus, my mom’s dad was from New York, so I think that was in my genes.”
She inherited more than her penchant for English. At 5’11”, Lorena is long, lean and classically beautiful. Combined with her adventurous personality, she’s a natural for the face-pace life of an international model.
Although she’s not that well known in the United States, she already has more than 1 million followers on Instagram.
Last September, she captured the attention of paparazzi when she was photographed taking a stroll along the lower Manhattan waterfront with the 40-year-old actor.
The pair were spotted having lunch on Park Avenue after spending the day at MoMa’s PS1. They were also spotted riding CitiBikes together, according to The New York Post.
It’s unknown how she reacted to her moment in the spotlight, but rest assured she’ll have many more.
