Blanca Padilla a Scarlet Beauty

The Spanish bombshell that has stole the hearts of many, it’s not just a pretty face, but an amazing person with a heart of gold and a truly role model.

Let’s begin with a few specifications about her. Born in Madrid, Spain on January 7 1995, she’s 24 years old. She has height of 1.80m/5ft 11in, brown hair and brown eyes. First discovered on the metro in her hometown of Madrid, since that day her career has been on the rise and knows no boundaries. She has walked for power fashion houses like Balmain, Miu Miu, Versace, Ralph Lauren, Valentino, Chanel, Armani and Dior, become the face of brands such as Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy.

She’s also been on the cover of many magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Grazia, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Issue, Yo Dona, Marie Claire and not to brag about it but in many international issues from Vogue. In April 2018 she starred alongside fellow models, Luna Bijil, Yasmin Wijnaldum and Birgit Kos in the special issue of Vogue Spain commemorating their 30th Anniversary. She has been conquering the fashion industry for so long and it’s time someone gives her the credit that she rightfully deserves.

In 2014 was her very first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, she graced the runway in the segment ‘Dream Girls’ with Taylor Swift performing ‘Blank Space’. In 2017 was the second time she walked down the runway achieving two outfits and earning her first wings. During 2018 there were various rumors that she or one of her fellow model coworkers (Grace Elizabeth, Alexina Graham, Gigi Hadid, Ming Xi, etc.) had achieved an Angel contract with the brand but there was no confirmation from any party. Sadly, in the same year she didn’t book the show. Such a loss for Victoria’s Secret. Hopefully we’ll be seeing her in this year’s fashion show, cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Interesting facts about her:

  • She’s all about natural products and organic food. Her drink of choice is a homemade mocha latte and makes her own milk, to be honest a I feel a little ashamed when I discovered this.
  • Aside from being a full-time model she is currently finishing her degree in marketing.
  • She’s one of the Spanish models most requested in the fashion industry.

Without a doubt Blanca is a star on the rise.
