From castles to the catwalk: Kitty Spencer and other modeling royalty
Fashion and monarchy are two spheres that may seem incompatible. After all, it is unheard of for a princess or duchess, or even the heiress to the throne, to parade down the catwalks. Fortunately, in the modern world, not too "royal" choice of profession is not condemned.
Who of the members of the family of monarchs decided to build a career in the modeling business? Read in the material OBOZREVATEL.
1. Lady Kitty Spencer
Kitty Spencer belongs to the highest British aristocracy. She is the eldest child of Charles Spencer, niece of Diana, Princess of Wales and cousin of Princes William and Harry. Her mother Victoria Aitken was a model in her youth, so her daughter decided to repeat her success - to conquer the catwalk. Kitty became the muse of Dolce&Gabbana brand, constantly participates in fashion shows and has repeatedly graced the covers of world fashion magazines.
2. Nicholas (Prince of Denmark, Count of Monpez)
He is the son of Prince Joachim, Count of Monpez and Countess Alexandra, grandson of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and Prince Consort Henrik. Nicholas is seventh in the line of successors to the Danish throne. He is ambitious: despite his privileges, he is determined to earn money on his own. At the age of 18, the prince began his career as a model. Parents did not contradict his choice.
3. Lady Amelia Windsor
Amelia Windsor is the daughter of George and Sylvana Windsor, Earl and Countess of St. Andrews, and a cousin of Princes Harry and William. She is 38th in line to the British throne. Now Amelia is building a career in the fashion business and rents a stylish apartment in one of the most fashionable areas of London Notting Hill. Lady Windsor in just a few years was able to win the favor of world designers. At 27, she has worked for the fashion houses of Azzedine Alaïa and Bulgari.
4. Charlotte Casiraghi
Charlotte is a Monegasque journalist and businesswoman, eleventh in line to the throne of Monaco. Her mother Princess Caroline of Monaco, aunt Stephanie and grandmother Grace Kelly have repeatedly posed for fashion publications. So it's no wonder why the girl decided to try her hand at modeling. This lady was the official spokesperson for Gucci's equestrian collections in 2010, in 2014 she was the face of Gucci Cosmetics, and a few years later she modeled for Yves Saint Laurent's campaign. Now she is the brand ambassadore of Chanel.
5. Princess Maria-Olympia
This model is the eldest daughter of Prince Paul of Greece and Crown Princess Maria-Chantal of Greece, granddaughter of King Constantine II and Queen Anne-Marie, who were the last monarchs of Greece until 1973. Maria-Olympia studied art history, theater, photography and graphic design in hopes of pursuing a career in art or fashion. And she succeeded. At the age of 17, the princess interned in the fashion department of Dior and later began participating in advertising campaigns from Dolce&Gabbana.
