People Who Are Polish: VS Model

One of the newest Victoria Secret models is from Poland.

Her name is Magdalena Frackowiak and she was born in Gdansk, Poland on 6 October, 1984. 

Madgalena has appeared on the cover of Elle, Vogue, Dazed and Confused and countless other fashion magazines.  She has worked with Karl Lagerfeld, Oscar de la Renta and others.

Magdalena's eyes and pout are her signature looks.  When you get a chance to look at the shape of her eyes, you'll see that they are curved in a very unique way.  Some call these "Polish eyes".  They run in my father's side of the family, who are from the BiaƂystok area and other surrounding towns.

When I was growing up, I had no female stars to look at who looked like me in any way.  It's refreshing to see women who are from that area of the world being celebrated now for their beauty.  I'll be showing my younger daughter photos of Magdalena's eyes, since she inherited the same feature from me.

Side Note:  I wonder if she goes by the typical Polish familiar of Madga.

Na razie...
