Laetitia Marie Laure Casta

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Laetitia was born in Pont-Audemer, Eure, France. Casta's mother, Line Blin, is from Normandy. Her father, Dominique Casta, is from Corsica. She has an older brother, Jean-Baptiste, and a younger sister, Marie-Ange. She spent her childhood in Normandy and Corsica. On October 19, 2001, she gave birth to her eldest daughter, Sahteene Sednaoui. Laetitia has also two other children: Orlando Accorsi, born on September 21, 2006, and Athenà Accorsi, born on August 29, 2009.

At the Ondine's age, she was discovered by the photographer Frederic Cresseaux and an agent of Madison Models while building sand castles with her sister on the beach of the Marine of Sant'Ambrogio in Corsica. After her father agreed to let the agency take some test photographs, her unmistakable potential was recognized by the founder of Madison Models - despite the fact that the shoot occurred without the aid of makeup and a designer wardroom which many models rely on to promote themselves. Within weeks of her first shoots, she was walking the runway for Jean-Paul Gaultier. However, her career began to take off when Odile Sarron, the casting director of the French edition of Elle, saw and was impressed with Laetitia's Beauty. Modeling contracts ensued and in 1993 Laetitia signed on with Guess? Jeans for a very successful advertising campaign.

She was contracted with Victoria's Secret in 1996, gracing many covers of the catalog as one of the Angels, the name attributed to the other four models of the company.
In 1997 Casta joined fellow models by appearing in the popular Sports Illustrated swimwear edition for a consecutive three years. A year later she was honoured by Rolling Stone. They named her Hottest Model of the Year, and placed a nude Casta on the cover of their 'Hot' issue. In a short period of time Laetitia became one of the most popular new models. Laetitia ranked second in Maxim Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful Women" issue. She made her big screen debut in a French film, Asterix et Obelix by Claude Zidi with co-star Gerard Depardieu. She appeared in the controversial Chris Isaak video for "Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing", shot by Herb Ritts.

In addition to Rolling Stone, Casta has adorned the pages of many other magazines, including Glamour; Vogue; and Cosmopolitan. In 1998, she became spokesperson for cosmetics company L'Oréal Paris. Since 1998 Casta's public outfits have all been personal Yves Saint Laurent creations.

Her appearance in the exclusive Pirelli calendar, considered a collector's item because it consists of beautiful shots taken by the most prestigious photographers, is considered one of Casta's accomplishments. In the 1999 issue, themed "Women Through the Decades", Casta is featured as representative of the 1950's woman.

Laetitia became a French national obsession in 1999 when she was elected by the French mayors to be the representation of Marianne's effigy, the French Republic symbol.

Time magazine has named her one of the top-ten most-influential people of the year. She's appeared on hundreds of covers of major magazines including Glamour, Vogue, Elle, Marie-Claire, Cosmopolitan, I-D, Zoo magazine, Stiletto, etc. She has been featured everywhere...including Guess? Jeans ads, the Victoria's Secret catalog, H&M lingerie, in Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions, Louis Vuitton, Roberto Cavalli, Tiffany & Co, X.O.X.O, Chanel, Bulgarie, Ralf Lauren, the very exclusive Pirelli calendar (3 times), and as a spokeswoman for L'Oréal Paris.

In 2012 Laetitia is nominated Knight in Order of Arts and of Letters.

Laetitia can look forward to a bright future as an accomplished actress thanks to her nomination for the César Award for Best Supporting Actress in Joann Sfar's movie Gainsbourg (Vie héroïque) for her role of Brigitte Bardot, the Golden Swann of the Best Actress in Cabourg Film Festival for her role of Catherine in Born in '68 by Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau, her role of Salome in Visage by Tsai Ming Liang and her interpretation in theatre Antoine of Ondine.

Quote :
The fashion business is no cakewalk. For a model to gain the respect of designers, photographers, editors, and casting directors is no small feat; and when a girl is not only respected but also revered, she becomes a legend in her own right. The industry icons are models who have built stellar careers, they've snagged every cover, walked every show, booked every campaign, and lived to tell the tale. Before you can be a true supermodel, you have to become one of the industry's preferred stars and these girls are all bonafide favorites.

With at least 8+ years at blue chip level under their belts, and still currently working, they bring experience and professionalism to every job and never fail to elevate the image into the realm of art. These are the true model's models and their endless stream of power bookings reflects that. Icons are sorted alphabetically - No numbers would do them justice, they are eternal


About Laetitia

Quote :
Laetitia Casta, the ultimate French beauty remains relevant, radiant and completely in demand. No matter the season, La Casta stands as an undeniable icon of beauty in and out of the fashion industry. How many catwalkers can claim they were chosen to be the emblem of an entire nation? In addition to her tenure as Marianne, Laetitia has also served as muse for everyone to the late great Yves Saint Laurent, to Jean Paul Gaultier and Karl Lagerfeld.
