Barbara is definitely one of our favorites to walk the runway this year and it looks like she may have a nice future w/ Victoria’s Secret. The 19-year-old Hungarian model walked the VS Fashion Show runway for the first time, so let’s hope we see her return next year. Here’s more juice from Barb’s Wiki:
Palvin was born in Budapest, Hungary. At an early age, Palvin took up soccer and singing, considering them her favorite hobbies.
Palvin was discovered on the streets of Budapest in 2006 at the age of 13.
Palvin is ranked 40 on the Top 50 Models Women list by models.com. 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”. Palvin credits Vodianova and Kate Moss as her favorite models.
