Laetitia was born in May the 11th, 1978. She is half norman and half corsican (by her father). One brother and a little sister. If you are interested, she loves painting, poetry (she always have 'Enfantines', a book from Valery Larbaud), pigs, trapdoor spiders (strange english name for 'mygale')...Hum!
And if you want to meet her, try corsican beaches or Marne-la-Vallée. Also try parks in Paris, and if you meet her, catch her attention by telling loudly your trapdoor spider the difference between the art of Prévert and Larbaud's one. Ca le fait!!
The myth began on a beach in Corsica (in Calvi ) where Laetitia was rivaling the sun. She was only 15 years old . Immediate success where she appeared. She made about 40 covers in 2 years (now more of course) such as : ELLE (all or almost you can find here comes from it) , Seventeen, J&J, Glamour, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitain etc...
Laetitia Casta also performed runways for Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood, Gaultier, Dior, made advertisements for CHANEL (Allure), Kenzo, Givenchy, Morgan...She is now the face of L'Oréal (with Elsève), Guess etc etc etc. She is everywhere and it's really great to see her smiling on advertisements in the streets when you come back from a hard day of work.
She has been photographed by...Patrick Demarchelier, André Rau, Lothar Smith, Dominique Issermann, Herb Ritts, Paolo Roversi, Raymond Meier, Walter Chin, Phillip Dixon....What a visit card ! She was the model of the french sculptor Jean-Marc De Pas. I've seen the statues he did on Canal+ (french TV network) when she was invited.
Laetita exploded at the time when photographers were fed up with half-starved models. This wave of thin girls was initiated by Karl Lagerfeld : he chose Jodie Kidd (1.80m and half-starved) then Stella Tenant (tall, sad) as muses and said that it was perfection. Gucci also uses models who seems to be seriously drugged .......or digusted with life .Bah ! Beurk ! Puaj ! And so came Laetitia with her 35C-24-35 , her generous shapes, her face full of life , and she rehabilitated the real woman.
Thanks.... Even Dominique Isserman said that she is the sexiest woman on Earth... Some said she is the new B.B (Brigitte Bardot ), so in fact a new sex symbol..
