Hey People! Be ready on Saturday to enter my first giveaway on the blog. The only clue I can give you is: creation.
Just before, I'd like to present you today as a sequel to my Models Posts Serie, my favorite model of the moment: Ginta Lapina.
Ginta was born in Riga, Latvia. She began her modeling career on March 2005 when she was scouted on street of Riga by Nils Raumanis, the founder of DANDY model management in Riga, Latvia. She was then placed with MC2 Model Management in New York. Her big runway debut was at the Spring 2008 New York Fashion Week in the Benjamin Cho show.
In 2008 she finally signed with model agency Women Management, which is now her mother agency. Lapiņa has since walked in shows for many notable designers in the Milan, Paris, London, and New York fashion weeks including Anna Sui, Nina Ricci, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana, Rodarte, Proenza Schouler, Vivienne Westwood, Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Carolina Herrera, Bottega Veneta, Versace, Valentino, and Louis Vuitton.
Ginta has been photographed in editorials for notable fashion magazines such as Russian Vogue, Marie Claire, Numéro, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue Italia, American Vogue, Dazed & Confused and Flair, and has been featured on the cover of Velvet Magazine.
She's currently ranked 31rst on the Top 50 Models Women List by Models.com. She's featured in Yves Saint Laurent beauty advertising since Summer 2010. For the year 2011 she's featured in Miu Miu, Anna Sui, Jill Stuart Beauty, Galliano, Sportmax and Marc by Marc Jacobs. Lapina's hobbies include listening to rap music, swimming, and playing volleyball. Her model friends include Viktoriya Sasonkina, Olga Sherer, Mina Cvetkovic, and Kinga Rajzak (Source: Wikipedia).
