Model Watch: Arlenis Sosa's set to take Paris by storm

29 September 2008


It's not often a model makes it big within months of signing on the dotted line and so when we heard newcomer Arlenis Sosa had already bagged herself a Lancome contract, two spreads in Italian Vogue's all-black issue and can count Anna Wintour as one of her biggest fans we knew we had to investigate! So we called her agent - and director of Marilyn New York Nathalie Moar to get the low-down. ‘Arlenis achievements are phenomenal, even more so considering the agency only signed her this past April (the minute we saw her!) and it could not be happening to a more wonderful young woman,' she said. Her Cinderella moment came when Anna Wintour spotted her modelling an Oscar de la Renta dress, and thought she looked so beautiful she insisted she must accompany her to the Met Ball wearing it. And now she's set to be the rising star - and bucking the trend for all-white catwalks - at Paris Fashion Week. ‘Arlenis feels truly blessed and lucky by the success that has come her way. She is a true star.' Oh, and she also set up the Arlenis Sosa Foundation for children with diabetes in her native Dominican Republic. Brains and beauty huh? Some people have it all! Watch out for her Paris debut...
