Laetitia Marie Laure Casta is a French supermodel and actress.
Time magazine once named her one of the top ten most influential people of the year.
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 appeared in and on the cover of Victoria's Secret catalogs, ELLE magazine, and Vogue magazine. She was featured in Guess? Jeans and Tommy Hilfiger ad campaigns. She also appeared in three consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions, Rolling Stone, and a Pirelli Tires Calendar.
She once had a close relationship with designer Yves St. Laurent, whose outfits she would regularly wear at public appearances.
Laetitia Casta has appeared on over 100 magazine covers and has been credited, along with Tyra Banks, and a few others, with bringing back the notion of the voluptuous models.
Laetitia has a brown belt in Judo. She feels that her experience with Judo has helped her in her modeling career to have control, to set limits for herself, to not be aggressive and to think with her mind not with her emotions.
