Canadian model Irina is one of the fashion world’s top models, and one of my all-time faves. Not only is she simply just a model, she is also a musician. On top of that, she has a fab sense of style and is known for her quirky, vintage-inspired looks. Very cool.
Born in Romania, Irina’s parents emigrated to Canada when she was 5 years old and settled in Montreal. At the age of 17, she attended an open call, which then led to her being signed to a modelling agency in Montreal. Soon after, she was seen on the runways in London, Paris, and Milan. Irina’s friendship with Kate Moss has certainly helped her career, and in 2007 she was chosen as the model for Kate’s Topshop clothing line.
In the past, Irina has broken the record for the most runway work in one season, and has also been one of Karl Lagerfeld’s muses.
