Sixteen year old Hungarian cutie Vanessa Axente is a star in the making. Displaying shades of Barbara Palvin and Mirte Maas, Axente possesses a natural beauty that is quite simply breathtaking. Casting director Ashley Brokaw and Miuccia Prada were quite taken aback by Axente, selecting her to open the Fall/Winter 2012 Prada collection. Represented by DNA Model Management in New York, Axente's Prada exclusive preceded a lightning blitzkrieg of the Paris shows with appearances at Dries Van Noten, Barbara Bui, Nina Ricci, Balmain, Balenciaga, Rick Owens, Christian Dior, Loewe, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent and two opening berths for Celine and Valentino.

Chaperoned by her parents throughout the Paris collections, Axente displayed a maturity, elegance and versatility on the runway well beyond her sixteen years. Axente began modelling at age fourteen, honing her craft in the Singapore and Tokyo markets whilst also continuing with her higher school education. Axente is clearly a dedicated and highly driven youngster having hired celebrity personal trainer Tracy Anderson with her sights firmly set on one day walking in the Victoria's Secret extravaganza.
