Known as Dolce & Gabbana’s favourite and the face of the fragrance Light Blue, Bianca Balti has become a muse as well for the designers as for photographers in general. With her hypnotising blue eyes, golden suntan and lush lips, the hot Italian is one of the most beautiful women in the fashion world.
Bianca steps on the catwalk for the first time at the end of 2004, when she participates in the fashion weeks in Milano and Paris for Miu Miu, Hermès, Dolce & Gabbana and a number of other famous brands. Her face has adorned the covers of Vogue, Marie Claire, GQ and Harper’s Bazaar. She has participated in advertising campaigns for leading fashion brands like Missoni, DKNY, Roberto Cavalli, as well as innumerable photo sessions – every time a different role, but always recognisable with her doll-like look and sexy body.
The Italian beauty was born on 19th March 1984 in the city of Lodi, Italy. There is the blood of her Italian father and her Azerbaijan mother flowing in her veins – a combination of genes, where beauty worthy of worship stems from. Her initial attempts to become a professional model have not been so successful, but maybe right on time a fashion agent notices her accidentally while the beauty is working at a supermarket in Italy.
We remember Bianca Balti in Vicroria’s Secret’s show in 2005, as well as her photos for the prestigious, collectible limited-edition calendars for Pirelli in 2011 and Lavazza in 2010. This summer the beauty made her debut as a designer, creating a limited-edition collection of swimsuits for online store Yoox. The designs are classic, but with a retro cut and inspired by the style of the 60s. “I created this collection, inspired by the women I love, regardless of their age and silhouette. My designs are offered in a wide variety of sizes and could be worn as well by 14-year-old niece as by my 60-year-old mother,” shares Bianca.
After her marriage to Italian photographer Christian Lucidi, she has a daughter, named Matilde, while at the end of July 2017 Bianca said yes to her long-term boyfriend Matthew McRae, with whom they have a girl – the young Mia. The Italian beauty has been pointed out as an exemplary mother who does not display scandalous behaviour in public, unlike many of her colleagues.
