Barbara Palvin (born 8 October 1993 in Budapest [1]) is a Hungarian fashion model.

Personal life

Palvin was born in Budapest, Hungary. At an early age, Palvin took up soccer and singing, considering them her favorite hobbies.[3]

Modeling career

Palvin was discovered on the streets of Budapest in 2006 at the age of 13.[3] She shot her first editorial that year for Spur Magazine. Palvin subsequently moved to Asia where she continued a steady stream of bookings.[4] Since then, Palvin has been on the cover of L'Officiel, Vogue Russia, Glamour Hungary and Jalouse Magazine, and has modeled for Armani Exchange, H&M, Victoria's Secret, and Pull and Bear.[2] In February 2012, she became an ambassador for L'Oreal Paris.[5]

Her runway debut was as an exclusive for Prada during Milan Fashion Week in February 2010.[3] Palvin has also walked for Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Nina Ricci, Emanuel Ungaro, Christopher Kane, Julien MacDonald, Jeremy Scott, Vivienne Westwood, Etro, and opened the pre-Fall 2011 Chanel show.

Palvin is ranked 40 on the Top 50 Models Women list by models.com.[6] Palvin is often compared to Russian model Natalia Vodianova; British Vogue editor Miranda Almond said, "We chose Barbara because she is absolutely exquisite looking a cross between a young Brooke Shields and Natalia Vodianova".[7] Palvin credits Vodianova and Kate Moss as her favorite models.[8]
