Bianca Balti is part of the "triad" highest paid models-Italians.
Italian beauty Bianca Balti was born May 25, 1984 in the picturesque village of Lodi in Lombardy. Father of the future stars of world podiums was Italian and his mother - a native of Azerbaijan. By the way, Mom model considers the standard of beauty:
Absolutely! This is my mom. She is still beautiful. It is inherent natural sophistication.
Before she noticed renowned fashion designer, Bianca had obbegat many castings and fashion shows. Its main "problem" was too "typical" Italian appearance. Oh, Bianca, we have your "problems": full lips, dark skin so long slim legs!
Repeated failures have forced our heroine to believe that she had no "highlights", and like it, "thousands". Bianca gave up trying to become a model and went to work as a clerk in one of the supermarkets.
"If that - from a fate not go, and for study in college you have to pay" - wisely decided to Bianca, and she was right. In a department store noticed her Bruno Paulette, owner of modeling agency Brave Model Management. He was struck by the grace of the girl and quickly offered her a lucrative contract. Balti long could not believe that she is about to appear on the cover of L'Officiel (in general, every country has its own Natalia Vodianova).
A good start sets high bar modeling career. The next major contract for Bianchi was cooperation with the famous Italian duo Dolce & Gabbana. Designers, unlike short-sighted model recruiters, conversely praised classic beauty compatriot. No wonder, one of the major music of this duo was long thought Monica Bellucci.

In parallel with the fashion shots, Bianca wins the podium at fashion shows Roberto Cavalli, D & G, Valentino, Paco Rabanne, Christian Dior, Armani Jeans, Donna Karan, Guerlain, Missoni, La Perla, Rolex, Revlon, Guess, Anna Molinari and many, many others. And if before Bianca could not have dreamed of such contracts, but now she has become a recognizable pattern of "calling card" of many famous brands.
In 2005, Balti has become one of "angels" in the show Victoria's Secret, and then took part in a photo shoot for their catalog. It is known for showcasing underwear desired shape, which in the early career of Bianca also considered too "typical". Unlucky casting director who missed this gem of a business model, now biting his elbows. But it was too late.

Perhaps it would be easier to list those fashion houses, whose campaigns are not involved our heroine.
Without departing from the career, Bianca and built his personal life. In 2007, the model gave birth to daughter Matilda from the beloved Christian Lucido, quickly regained form and returned to the podium. Bianca herself explains the secret of his luxurious pieces of good genetics:
I have only once sat on a diet after birth to daughter Matilda. That was four years ago. Diet consisted in the fact that I ate every night at the Japanese restaurant. But in general I was lucky: I can eat as much as you want without gaining weight. And I love to eat!

Sport is also not in favor of the model:
I am a real Italian - I do not like sports load. Around the same time on fitness is not enough: the shooting, traveling, fashion shows, and in fact I have my mother, to pay much attention to his daughter ... The only thing that I can afford - is home yoga classes, they are good that at the same time strengthen the muscles and relax the mind.

I did it when she met her boyfriend, as he has his own rock band called Cats (Cats), and he has the tattoo on her stomach. Not being a fan of them, I made this tattoo because I love cats. In a sense, I think that I also cat, as they are very capricious. If they want, they can be sweet and cute, but sometimes you just want to be alone. I, too, it happens. Sometimes I want to be alone with myself, and then I can be cute and sweet.
