Full Disclosure

Twenty-six year old Marie Piovesan is the latest addition to that exclusive clique of twenty-something models to have recently entered modelling's major league. Marilyn Model Management's Piovesan unveiled her sophisticated, aristocratic beauty during fifty show appearances at the Fall/Winter 2012 collections including Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton. Piovesan may only have six months modelling experience but she brings with her instead a maturity and a grounded perspective on life and the challenges presented by modelling. Speaking with models.com Piovesan reveals, "People have been asking me to model since I was 16 but I wasn't interested in it. I wanted to study... I did two years of fine arts and then three and a half years of archaeology... I wanted to change my point of view, discovering a brand new world so I decided to try modelling several months ago."

Piovesan's striking 178 cm silhouette and the angular contours of her visage make for a beauty that is arresting. Perhaps more so, it is Piovesan's cerebral qualities which have the fashion world in raptures. When quizzed by the Cut as to her thoughts on underage models Piovesan sheds her insights, "I don't think one should judge. If they're doing it, it's okay for them, I guess. But, I'm happy I didn't start at that age... When you're 15, you don't really know who you are. You're still trying to figure it all out. To do modelling, I think you have to build up in your head before you go into it. When you're older, you're able to be a bit emotionally distant from the business, which if you start at a young age, you can take little things to heart." Since her explosive Fall/Winter 2012 season, Piovesan has been photographed by industry heavyweights Paolo Roversi, Craig McDean and Juergen Teller for Vogue Italia, Interview and for Celine's Spring/Summer 2012 campaign. Piovesan's chameleon-like ability to morph into any character before the lens makes her more of a muse as opposed to simply another human clothes hanger.
