Models that started their careers after 25 years.
As you know, the standard age for starting a modeling career is thirteen – fifteen years, and the girls are taken seriously for the work after graduation. But everywhere there are exceptions: some models signed contracts under the supervision of parents at the age of twelve and forgot about the school, while others, on the contrary, long went to the decision to start a career or by a lucky chance started it, having crossed the 20-year threshold. Ironically, the latter becomes more and more. Girls over the age of twenty-five years not only make more shows and editorials, but also take the place of the 16-year-old muses of the designers of the past. Look At Me decided to recall the five girls who managed to start or resume their careers in a mature age for the model.
Saskia de Brau.
Roughly speaking, Saskia de Brau met model business before twenty-five: the scout of one of the Amsterdam agencies noticed the girl in the tram when she was only fourteen. Then, in 1996, her career developed well, she even managed to film for Vogue. However, two years later Saskia lost interest and decided to focus on art: after graduation, she went to work as a teacher.
After many years Saskia remembered her unsuccessful attempts to build a career in her youth. Agency Paparazzi decided to give a 29-year-old girl a second chance at that time – and was not mistaken. The Netherlands with chiselled features liked the Parisian bookers at the castings of the nearest shows, and after the shooting for the last cover of the French Vogue under the direction of Karin Reutfeld it was difficult to go unnoticed. Special relationship with the girl formed with Ricardo Tishi: the chief designer Givenchy invited her to participate in each show for several seasons in a row, until finally made her the face of the spring-summer campaign of the brand. The same result was attracted to the model of Karl Lagerfeld: along with Joan Smalls, she replaced Frey Bech Eriksen in the Chanel advertisement.
The history of Leah Tee, born of Leonardo Cerezo, is known to many. The son of the famous Brazilian football player Toninho Cerezo did not show any interest in any changes in appearance and, even more so, in sex change before he went to study in Italy. There, he could not figure out himself for a long time, until he met Ricardo Tishi, who helped Lea find a place in life. After a number of transformations, Lea began to work as an assistant with the designer and finally joined the family Givenchy.
In 2008, Ricardo proposed Leah, 27, to take part in the campaign for the brand, and after that – to participate in the presentation of the collection and walk through the show. Now that her name has thundered all over the world, the French and British Vogue, The Guardian and dozens of bloggers became interested in the model’s history. Later, she continued to participate in the Givenchy show and often acted as a journalist. Her most famous shot to date is a kiss with Kate Moss for the cover of Love. This year, nothing is heard from Lea, which is not surprising, since at the beginning of her career she talked about her intentions to go to Milan and study veterinary medicine.
Born in Russia, but as a teenager who moved to Germany Kati Nesher herself took the initiative and appealed to the agent. It was difficult to start a career at twenty-seven years, in reality everything turned out to be not the way a girl imagined, and for a while she stopped trying. Katya continued to work as a Russian-German translator, to study at the university and take care of her two-year-old son.
Six months after the unsuccessful attempt, one make-up artist advised her to try again. She sent her photos to the agent, and that was enough to sign a contract with Viva. Career developed rapidly. After the debut on the couture shows, Katie made a successful season at the main Fashion Week. And after a while she starred for the campaign of Louis Vuitton, along with Daria Strokus, which finally consolidated her status as a rising star. Because of Katya’s son, it’s not easy to spend a lot of time working as a model, but the girl who resembles the fate of Arizona Muse continues to shoot for magazines and go on shows.
Like Saskia de Brau, Emelin Valad went to work as a model not with the first sentence. At twenty-three years in Paris, she trained in a communications agency, located near the model agency. She was offered work several times, and in the end she agreed. However, the internship was over and, having made a few pictures, Emelin decided that the modeling business is not hers.
However, Emelin was awarded a contract with Women, so she continued to work. In 2010, her career had a breakthrough: she went to Balenciaga and became the face of Alexander Wang. The work became more and more, and the model every week made itself felt, then having withdrawn for the next cover, then once again working with Karl Lagerfeld. Particularly successfully the situation developed during the shows: the model almost became the symbol of the main Fashion Weeks. If in the season of FW 2011 she opened Alexander Wang, Etro and Louis Vuitton and closed Rick Owens, Loewe and Chloe, then dozens of open and closed by her show next season does not make sense.
Marie Piavezan seriously took up her career more recently: she used to be shot only for the sake of earning. After graduating from the fine arts and archeology, she thought about a modeling career in twenty-five years.
The way to the glory of Marie did through Celine: first she opened the brand display six months ago, then she shot for the book, and then became the face of the campaign along with Stella Tennant. Noting several major publications, Piavezan made fifty shows in February and March at this year’s shows. On the day she closed the Louis Vuitton show in Paris (which Kate Moss did the previous two times), Marie turned twenty-six.
