My #WCW, more like Woman Crush Everyday, is Hungarian model, Barbara Palvin. Barbara was discovered by an agent from IMG Models at the mere age of thirteen. She’s been in the industry for a decade and her career is still going strong. Barbara has been on numerous magazine covers and walked in multiple fashion shows, including the 2012 Victoria’s Secret lingerie show. Most recently, she just became the first Hungarian model to appear in Sports Illustrated magazine. To top it all off, she has been an ambassador for L’Oreal Paris since February 2012 and she’s even acted in a film!

On top of being insanely beautiful, Barbara has a bubbly and fun personality, a cute sense of humor and she loves to read! When I found out that she was a rapid reader and lover of crime/mystery stories like me, I knew I had to “stan” her. (If you’re unfamiliar with the term “stan,” it pretty much means to be a super fan and really keep up with someone’s career.) Her accent and charm are my weaknesses.

From the MANY interviews I have watched of her, I can tell she is the type of person I would love to have around me. She is so down to earth and such a ball of sunshine and positivity— she’s a lovable girl.

Barbara is shorter than most models (she’s 5’7”) and she serves up some wicked curves that I could only dream of having. She has faced some criticism for not exactly fitting the “model criteria”, but she has not let any of the negative talk phase her and has continued to tread on in her successful career. Barbara has addressed her insecurities in the modeling world publicly a few times and has proved time and time again that self-confidence is the key to success.

Barbara is also the co-founder of an app called We Save Us, which is an app that allows you to send and receive emergency alerts from people nearby, as determined by your GPS.

Aside from having a bubbly personality, killer confidence and a successful career, Barbara has amazing style. Here are a few of my favorites!

I love love love LOVE her street style.

Especially long dresses. These are two of my favorite dresses ever.

Barbara absolutely killed it in the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Barbara’s editorials are capital G Great; my favorite is the June 201 edition of Vogue Australia.
