Modelinia Spotlight: Cora Emmanuel

Cora Emmanuel was one to be watched across from New York Fashion week to Paris Fashion week, which is why she is this week’s pick for a Modelinia Spotlight!

Before she aspired to be a model, Cora actually wanted to be an architect like her father.  However, with an eye for talent her mother was actually the one that got Cora into modeling– literally dragging her to modeling contests around France. Cora eventually caught the modeling bug, and after she graduated high school she entered into the modeling game full time. Cora has walked for Calvin Klein, Christian Cota, and Alexander Wang (just to name a few) and has also appeared in ads for Target, Levi’s and Topsop.

Check out our exclusive interview with Cora, after the jump!
