Scouted in a Hamburg street by Yannis of Place Models, it took Ilva a year to contact the agency and begin her model journey. Quiet and unassuming, Ilva is the only one surprised by the overwhelming response she is receiving from clients – ice blue eyes, perfect skin and elegance all add up to the real deal. Snaps to Yannis – another amazing find!

    Her ice blue eyes are stunning and captivating! Great body, perfect proportions. I also love the red hair. I wish there were more red heads in the industry!

    Next cover french Vogue please! I think Place Models has the best newcomers.
    Are they all german? Germany rocks.
    Ilva is major.

    She doesn’t seem a model that could arouse my enthusiasm… but I think she’s a solid and pretty classic beauty with plenty of good chances in her future.
    Btw for redheads skin is often a factor (for good or bad), and from this point of view hers seems very convincing.

    she photographs beutifully, she’ll do well in editorial and on catwalk, im not a fan of the video though.

    I am partial to any redhead. Her face has great angles, even without makeup. I hope she dominates the fashion world.

    Oh, she looks amazing! she reminds me of the 90s super models.
    Simply haunting!

    Woooow, lately you guys have been churning out amazing Daily Duos and Models of the Week. This girl is absolutely beautiful, maybe in a harder-edged sort of way – but that’s how I like it! I pray she’ll go far, her look is too good not to be seen everywhere.

  15. MissB says:

    August 27th, 2010 at 10:03 am

    I like her. She needs a new video though where she’s not playing with her hair the whole time. That got weird after about 10 seconds.

  16. Erika says:

    August 27th, 2010 at 10:15 am

    She should do a photo spread with Cintia Dicker- 2 hot redheads!

    so lovely!
    her hair, eyes, jawline, cheek bones, skin color, freckles and lips are so intense.

    i dont think ilva looks old , she is just not one of these 13 , 14yrs old kids out there.. she is a true beauty and looks like a grown up young lady ready to hit the fashion world ))

    Ok, time to break the silence after my few latest outburst. This lady is just too amazing to keep my mouth shut… 1st : She looks exactly like Malgosia, 2nd : She has the red hair to give the Olga Sherer bonus, 3rd : She’s just effing incredible.

    Wow. One of my favourite girls from DD and MOTW lately. Unforgettable – such a standout look and surprisingly versatile.
    She really will shine through the squadrons of Russian dolls.

    people here are so enthusiastic about every model. she’s not special peherps.
    I agree with the classic beauty thing, eyes are dazzling but i just fell… nothing.

  33. rougeblues says:

    August 29th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    very delicate, ethereal, crisp. a natural redhead is a good find for any agency.
