90's French supermodel Laetitia Casta was born in Normandy in 1978. She was the face of Guess?, Pepe Jeans, Chanel, Dior, L'Oréal, Alberta Ferretti, Victoria's Secret, Gyvenchy, Tommy Hilfiger and Yves Saint Laurent, among others. She appeared in three consecutive Sports Illustrated covers and in the Pirelli Calendar.
She was Yves Saint Laurent's muse and in 1999, Casta came out first of a national survey to be the new model for the bust of Marianne, an allegorical symbol of the French Republic, which stands inside every French town hall.
Now she's dedicated almost completely to acting, mostly in European movies, and she's engaged to Italian actor Stefano Accorsi, with whom she has a son. She also has another daughter from a previous relationship.
She's my favourite model and it's just shocking to see how different she is from runaway models nowadays.
