Laetitia Casta "All time Hottest Victoria Secret Model"
Laetitia Marie Laure Casta (born May 11, 1978) is a French model and actress.
Let's be very, very frank; Laetitia Casta takes our breath away. Everything from her eyes and lips, to her legs and toes makes us wiggle with joy. She is as close to perfection as Mother Nature intended a woman to be.
She is at her best when she strikes a pose and gives one of her trademark long, piercing stares. And at her best, she is unquestionably among the sexiest women alive.
Casta's career reportedly began when she was discovered by a photographer, during a family holiday in her father's native Corsica, at age 15.
Casta was the official face of L'Oréal, Dior, and Chanel. She has been featured in Guess? Jeans, Tommy Hilfiger, Miu Miu and XOXO ad campaigns. Casta has appeared on over 100 magazine covers including Victoria's Secret catalogs, ELLE magazine, and Vogue magazine. She also appeared in three consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues, Rolling Stone, and a Pirelli Calendar. She is now the face of Ralph Lauren's newest fragrance, Notorious. In 2010, she open the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2010 fashion show.
Laetitia has over 100 major magazine covers to her credit, including very lucrative and high-profile advertisements for L'Oreal, Yves St. Laurent, Ralph Lauren, and Revlon.
Recently, she also signed a multi-million dollar deal with Diamonds.com, which included the much vaulted (and over-hyped) stock options. In fact, there was a mini-controversy over those Diamond.com ads when publishers and billboard companies refused to carry it because Laetitia was a string of pearls away from being nude.
Laetitia's vast amount of work has earned her a place among the fashion industry's all-time elite, and has netted her a fortune that she is more than glad to save. (She has a reputation as a miser. When you get everything in life for free, of course you are going to save a lot of money).
Her new passion for acting has led her to several movie roles (though critical acclaim for her performances hasn't been as forthcoming as for her looks). Among her notable films are the live-action version of the beloved cartoon Asterix, Gypsy along side Naomi Campbell's ex Joaquin Cortez, and Savage Souls that got a savage reception by critics.
