Arlenis: Illuminated Beauty

Posted by wayne | June 20th, 2008

What is it about a girl who within a week of her start as a model finds herself lensing shoots with Meisel, Testino and Norman Jean Roy for clients like US and Italian Vogue. What is about Marilyn‘s new sensation Arlenis Sosa that prompts Oscar de la Renta, who with one glance decides he must dress her for the Met Costume Ball and seat her at his table? Apart from that shimmering skin and lithe, beautiful body it is the sheer unadulterated joy that beams from this girl that makes her such a rare, rare model. See for yourself in this exclusive video for MDX where Arlenis gives off a transcendent beauty !

    No wonder, most clients like her right away! Also, I like her biggest, shining, and whitiest teeth!!

  2. DidiDiva says:

    Arlenis is such a doll. I was left wanting to hear more from her. I hope there’s a part two coming. Seriously.

  3. lovearlenis says:

    So cool. But toward the end when he asks her if she thought about modeling, Arlenis says in Spanish that her priority was “Studying, studying, studying” and that she never had anything to do with modeling and the translatior translates that as “she never saw a fashion magazine”. LMAO, that’s not what she said at all. Good job!

    una muneca de verdad!!

  12. smartarse says:

    She’s got the elegance, poise, incredible bone structure and the overall package of a high fashion model that graced the catwalk of yesteryear.

    Arlenis’s epitomizes what was once old , new again.

    Love this girl!

  13. smartarse says:

    I just love a girl who has no knowledge of modeling and fashion becomes so successful. Arlenis is one of them in a short, short list of successes in this industry.

    Arlenis has stamped her mark, that’s for sure. Her future is bright. Just stay grounded, she’ll be alright.


  14. TT says:

    Best of luck to her!

  16. miss_a says:

    Vamo, Arlenis! So proud a fellow Dominican is getting her shine.

  17. Baby Clyde says:

    Arlenis is gorgeous. Love her. But the real new girl to watch out for is Rahma @ IMG. She’ll be debuting in NYC next month.

    Be Afraid!!!

    I know Arlenis for a long time. We went to school together, and well, all I can say about her is just a single word: Perseverance.

    She comes from a very poor family in the northern part of the Dominican Republic. Now, she’s living her own Princess Story.

    I’m so happy for her, and I’m pretty sure she’ll succeed in her new career. Keep on Arlenis. BReak a leg!

    She’s super gorgeous and funny and knows how to handle herself pretty well but whoever setup this interview didn’t really know about angles or didn’t pay attention to it…the translator was on her extreme right side and it felt a bit uncomfortable that in every question she had to look that way. Again She was phenomenal…
