biography

Nationality: United Kingdom
After a 4 year break and taking time off to have 3
children, Vivien Solari returns to the scene in 2013
with a
bang, her first shoot back was for Vogue Paris by Mert
and
Marcus. It's a homecoming of sorts as Mert and
Marcus photographed her just as they were taking off
in the early 00's.

Born on the Caribbean
island of
Aruba, brought up in
Manchester and educated at Leicester University,
Vivien Solari’s illustrious modelling career began when
she was spotted at 19, studying in her first year for a
degree in Psychology. Within a few months she worked
with Italian Vogue and had a lucrative
fragrance campaign with Versace causing her to
put her studies on hold. “I had a bump on my nose
and thought models had to be perfect,” she
remembers. Ironically, this minor imperfection along
with her “blank canvas beauty” has since become her
trademark.



Vivien has a classical beauty that transcends any era.
She has the rare ability to flip from high-octane
glamour
queen to hippie chick to timeless beauty in a flash. As
a result of her chameleon-like abilities she has been
the face of campaigns for brands as diverse as Calvin
Klein and Issey Miyake, appealing equally to the
commercial side and the cutting edge. She has
worked with the world’s most talented
photographers including Steven Meisel, Mario Testino,
Craig McDean,
Bruce Weber, Paolo Roversi, Inez and
Vinoodh and Nick Knight. Her numerous
work included covers for French, British and
German Vogue, Italian Marie Claire and Surface.
Vivien has worked with clients such as Giorgio Armani,
Jil
Sander, Vera Wang, Burberry, Swarovski and Valentino.
