Behind the Scenes on our Seychelles Shoots with the Victoria's Secret Model...
Seriously hot and super cool - not to mention being on every designer’s radar - everyone has a crush on Austrian model Nadine Leopold at the moment (and, if rumours are to be believed, Harry Styles may have set the trend for this fraulein).
While out in the Seychelles shooting our main beauty stories, the beauty desk peppered Nadine with questions on her travel essentials, must-haves and how she manages to keep her long blonde hair from frying on all the exotic locations she films at before eventually convincing her to sit down with us on a yacht (and you do!) and show us her favourite products...
Fun Nadine Leopold Fact 1: In need of some escapism? Mosey on over to Nadine’s instagram. Brimming with snaps from her tropical travels, it’s a beautiful boho dream. We’re 99% convinced she actually lives on the beach.
Fun Nadine Leopold Fact 2: Nadine's profile went stratospheric thanks to rumours she was dating One Direction’s Harry Styles in late 2014. Nothing was ever confirmed, but throw together Harry’s model-strewn history with a couple of much-instagrammed Starbucks outings, and, well, you can draw your own conclusions...
Fun Nadine Leopold Fact 3: Aged just sixteen, she was scouted on the street in her native Austria. Now, she’s signed to IMG, the biggest modelling agency in the world, and has starred in campaigns across the world, from Urban Outfitters and H&M to right here in Marie Claire (get your hands on the issue that's out now to see the amazing yacht shots!).
Fun Nadine Leopold Fact 4: With her sunny smile and beachy beauty, it’s no surprise that Nadine is a Victoria’s Secret model, but it stumped us that she was the first ever Austrian model to make their books. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for more beauties from the Alps from now on...
