    I don’t see her face, why? Always showing her profile. I don’t understand it.

    Is this a dream or what?? I’ve been waiting for this moment for four years(no joke!! I hope that because of Lieve and Josefina “the chilean wave” might start

  14. Arthur says:

    her face is unreal. she goes from young, innocent to powerful seamlessly. it’s like she’s another person.

  15. shawn adams says:

    May 11th, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    Although she’s slightly under the “preferred” height of models these days, Josefina’s elegance is very much apparent. She photographs well and should definitely continue working as a model. Hope to see her do well!

    May 11th, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Wow, ok.
    There’s something different.

    She had different idea of ethnicity.
    I’m curious to know here genetic makeup – she’s got such an interesting face and presence.

    She’s got the goods!!

    She used to be with Ford NY. I heard they dropped her? Been around for quite a while now.

    Yep, you’re right, she started at 14, and since then she had done some decent jobs with Giambatista Valli and some campaigns for Germany, and once she did some little shows in NY. I don’t know if Ford dropped her or she just left, maybe Paul Rowland thought she was too pretty. She used to be with Elite London, but I don’t know what happened, and of course her mother agency is Elite Chile. Not quite sure about her height, thought she was a bit taller

  29. HH says:

    May 12th, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    I think she has the looks and abilities to stay long in the industry.

  30. Sebastian Fiege says:

    May 12th, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    5’8.5″ .. is it for real??? how could place her as ‘model of the week’. Send her straight away to the commercial board. Come on! You guys know she’ll never get far with that height.

  31. Sebastian Fiege says:

    May 12th, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    she’s cute though

  32. Crystal says:

    May 12th, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Really pretty. I’m sure if her height was that much of a problem they wouldn’t have signed her. What’s half an inch below 5’9 (it’s all about good proportions), I’m sure all those girls who are 5’9 lie about their height too.

  33. Jess says:

    May 13th, 2012 at 6:42 am

    Sebastian, you’re stupid and obviously don’t have the slightest idea of how this industry works :)
    She’ll make it.

    amazing talent.. hope to see this career flourish… you go girl!!

  35. PAUL says:

    May 13th, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    the best chilean model!!! she is great woman!

  36. Jane says:

    May 13th, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    5’8.5″ is not a big deal. An inch or half an inch under or over the ideal height isn’t a problem. Just look at taller models like Karlie Kloss, who stands 6’1″. Or Miranda Kerr, who’s 5’8″. Like Crystal says, it’s all about proportions. If clients love her face, HALF and inch will not stop her from being successful.

    You say that like you’ve never heard of Barbara Palvin..

  38. Angel says:

    May 14th, 2012 at 12:50 am

    strange beauty. editorial or runway?

  39. david says:

  46. Robert says:

    May 20th, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Now this a model! I’m tired of seeing the gaunt faces or weird looking girls on here.
    Poise, elegance, beauty, radiance! She has it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is a $$MONEY MAKER$$!!! She should be with IMG instead of Elite in my opinion.

    The only thing is her height :/ – what a shame.
    LOVE HER!!!

  47. lalo says:

    alissa .. lieve danau is FRENCH no chilean… READ AGAIN.. “lieve dannau is FRENCH. no chilean” She alone I agree to represent to chili, but it is not Chilean, his agents of elite chili but it is not like that. But even a Chilean magazine I confirm it in an interview to lieve dannau. where she itself I confirm that it is of francia
