    Hanaa B. was found by me and was the first runner up of my Look model search contest in 2009.we have built her career vor 15 months. She is 24 years old now and after signing a mother agency contract between IMG many mysterious things happened. Watch out for further development.

    @WolfgangSchwarz: With mysterious things you mean that she is 3 years older according to you?

  8. Amna says:

    December 2nd, 2010 at 8:33 am

    God she’s stunning ! Go Hanaa !You make Tunisians so proud !

    Just wanted to clarify something guys, Hanaa is one of my close friends, I know here and we’ve been in the same school and she’s truly 21, How a person who was born in 1989 could have 24 years old ! That’s so funny LOL It doesn’t even make sense !

    but As Martin Solveig “Ahaaa! Jealousy!” LOL

    I can’t wait to see more of Hanaa !!

    ..I could publish a copy of her passport folks and the mistery is that truth disapears and dirty lies coming on handy ! But never mind just go to our website and you will see all press from the Look model search final in tunisia: BTW shall I scann the passport copy ?

    Love her face, I guess it doesn’t matter she has 24 or 21 , when you look beautiful and fresh!! Hope she will make it big, I had a big crush on her when I saw her walking for givenchy she truly represented Givenchy ADN! plus Her body is to die for. and I do agree on her special features we don’t see this combination of the Mediterranean and european ( pale skin) too often!

  23. Mimi says:

    December 2nd, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    …………….I saw her in Vienna, it was look models who made her big ! They invented the haircut !

  31. Luciano says:

    December 2nd, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    Wow Look at that face and the expression of the eyes…..she’s not only stunning but I loved the comments she made about herself………..obviously she’s very smart.
    It must be a dream & thrill to shoot her,be it with me or with any other photographer. Hanaa, it will be a privilege & honor to shoot you one day!
    Don’t forget my name because I will most definitely not forget yours.

  32. Stacey from NY says:

    December 2nd, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    Amazing! a Tunisian model rising to the top for sure. With her looks & IMG, you can be sure we will be seeing her for quite a while! Give me more! I wanna see more Hanaa!

  33. John NY says:

    December 2nd, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    Hanaa, I didn’t know about Tunisia until I read the comments you wrote. Thank
    You, your country seems amazing and so are you.

  34. N.Aaron says:

    December 2nd, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    She’s gorgeous and has a great body.

    21, 24, it doesn’t matter and has no factor into how fantastic this girl truly is. Many of the big high profile models are lying about their age anyway.

  35. Ruth L.A says:

    December 2nd, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    What elegance & style! she must be amazing in the shows. This is one classy model which probably makes heads turn.

  39. Angel says:

    December 2nd, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    So i was looking and i was wondering. Models have facebook or something? I guess there in twitter.

    she look awesome and she is tall…. i like that

  40. BMD says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 12:33 am

    She’s awesome and gorgeous. Truly deserving of MOW. I did google her and she did win that Tunisia Look Model competition in 2009…but who cares? She could be thirty-bloody-six and I wouldn’t give a rip as long as she looked fresh. IMG snapped her up cos they know she’s amazing.

  42. Hollywood Sentinel says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 6:17 am

    A great new face here that can appear in the style of yes- Halle Berry, also Isabella Rossellini… a truly classic beauty here indeed. Ah, and such a surprise, DRAMA surrounding a model! I’ve NEVER dealt with that! hahaha

  43. rosie says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 6:20 am

    OK, let’s put an end to this now:

    1. 21, 24 or 45… she looks great and is working successfully. It does not matter.
    2. She says she was discovered by her mother. It is not in dispute that she was at one stage with Look Models. Now she is with IMG. Most models were with a different agency before they made it big. That’s the industry.

  44. Aida says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 6:59 am

    …well its always easy for outsiders to comment.But many agencies which are working hard on new models nevr get the benefits because contracs are broken and other things, thats the industry as well, what a shame !

  45. Christopher says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 7:25 am

    …whats this all about ? The girl is beautiful and the big animals always screw the small ones…..Life goes on

  47. Yasmin says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 10:05 am

    wow, I haven’t seen so many comments for a new face for a long time!
    Not crazy about her face, but she has a smokin’ body and her polas on the balkony are amazing!!

  56. jackie says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    But to be honest, all these comments, sounds like a fan group .

    guys chill, she dont needs it hehe

  57. H ella says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 5:12 pm

    I see this guy tryin’ to make a statement about her age, I’m sorry but We actually don’t care , cause We love fashion here and we love new faces , we re not lookin’ to know how old is she , too many models made it big when they got older , so like some said it’s fashion , to kill or to be killed , if she decided to change agency and defend her best interest I don’t see what’s wrong in that?!!

  58. monica says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 5:40 pm

  59. Nigel , New York city says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    …just need to answer to Hella, I am a photographer, and I have to tell you : we do care about age, because with 25 to be a new face makes it very difficult to get her into the N.Y. shape……ask Steven or Patrick, however, I think she`s cool , will try to book her , amazing body

  60. Nigel , New York city says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    I think I saw her in Switzerland, lingerie campaign for hanro, quite boaring…we will do better here !

  61. Raad says:

    December 3rd, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    I saw her in Tunisia and I promise you she is even more striking than in the photos.
    Hanaa, we love you!

  76. Astrid, Vienna says:

    December 7th, 2010 at 6:22 am

    From the very first moment – when I saw Hanaa in Tunis – I was stunned by her elegant appearance and her beautiful face. A model to be remembered – and just appropriate for international catwalks and high-level fashion magazines… Chapeau!

    February 15th, 2011 at 11:19 am

    This girl is a chameleon and yet she is 100% herself. She can skew androgynous, ultra-feminine (that body!), Latin, European, mature, child-like. In some pictures you can’t tell if they were taken today or 50 years ago in Havana. I really like her.

  83. David says:

    March 12th, 2011 at 12:51 am

    Stunning. She reminds me of Kim Ann Foxman but far less obscure.
