Kasia Struss (real name: Katarzyna Strusińska; born November 23, 1987 in Ciechanów) is a Polish model.

Personal life[edit]

Struss was discovered in 2005 by a local talent scout after sending her pictures to a local Polish teen magazine. She went on to finish high school in home town Ciechanów before signing with an agency two years after her initial discovery. Style.com ranked her as one of the top 10 newcomers of that season, and she is currently ranked No. 26 in Model.com's 50 Top Models.

Career[edit]

Struss has appeared in various magazines, including Vogue, Numéro, W, V, Dazed & Confused, and Ten Magazine.

She has walked the runway for Marc Jacobs, Viktor & Rolf, John Galliano, Versace, Kenzo, Diesel, DKNY, Burberry Prorsum, Alessandro Dell'Acqua, Sonia Rykiel, Gareth Pugh, Julien Macdonald and many more. In 2007/2008, Struss opened shows for Nina Ricci, Dries Van Noten, Doo.Ri, Giambattista Valli, PHI, Costume National, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Jil Sander, Sinha Stanic, Jill Stuart, Loewe, and Wunderkind[citation needed], and closed shows for Jil Sander, Chloé, Giambattista Valli, Thakoon, Richard Chai, Christopher Kane, and Doo.Ri. In the Spring/Summer fashion week 2010 she was the third most booked model, after Liu Wen and Constance Jablonski, who placed first and second respectively.[citation needed]

Struss has shot ad campaigns for Kenzo, Bottega Veneta, Valentino, Christian Dior, Chloé, Mulberry, Pringle of Scotland, Jil Sander, Dolce & Gabbana, and Costume National.
