Belle of The Ball: Melodie Monrose

1 Mar

Hello Belles and Gents! It has been a long time since I posted a  Belle of the Ball profile. Maybe it was due to me messing around with my Tumblr page where you can see reblogging countless pictures of beautiful female and male fashion models of color. It was time for me to bring it back and I chose Melodie Monrose.

 Originating from the Caribbean Island of Martinique, 18 year old Melodie Monrose was discovered weeks before Spring 2011 fashion show castings began. She was flown to New York, signed to Wilhelmina Models on the spot, and has been jet setting across the world walking in New York, Paris, and Milan Fashion Weeks. She is named Models.com Top Ten Newcomer of Spring/Summer 2011 and Style.com Top Ten Fresh Faces.

 

After only two months of being discovered, Monrose has walked in 33 fashion shows that include prestigious designers Lanvin, YSL, and Zac Posen.

She was featured in editorials of V and Interview Magazine.

 

Monrose, who insists that she is shy, enjoys reading books, going to museums, discovering new restaurants, and studies Literature & Language. Her mother agency is Your Angel Models, located in Martinique and is also signed to d’Management (Milan) & Silent (Paris). Monrose is one of those fashion models that will be an icon for the years to come. I will be following Monrose’s career via my Tumblr “A’dora Goes Exploring”.
