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!

  • Allison

    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!

  • bee

    if u remember america’s next top model’s twin (amanda and michelle babin), she has similarity with them

  • Akis


  • George

    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.

  • jake

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

  • stace

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

  • Gabrie

    :D love it!, love it! Keeping an eye on her!

  • susanna

    Love the video.

  • Courtney

    Those eyes and that jaw line! fantastic.

    who knows the name/artist of the song for her video?

  • Joe

    wow ! she is gorgeous ! I hope she does fantastic because she should do fantastic with a face like that!

  • @Courtney about the song: Shuggie Otis, “Strawberry Letter 23” – hope I won something… :)

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

  • Thomas

    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.

  • 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.

  • Erika

    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.

  • Nelly

    New video?! Love this one,really cool.
    Time to say goobbye Karen Elson,Ilva is here.

  • Natasha K

    welcome to the world of modeling – what a beauty.

  • I literally met Ilva yesterday. She came for a casting at my job. She was soo sweet, and very tall

  • i shot this image…
    and she is soo amazing!



  • interesting look, would be good to see shot better in better images

  • Lou

    Really like her style and her hair. But she looks actually old

  • the excess of charm


    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 ))

  • RRRaul415

    Great beauty! Looks incredible without makeup.

  • Lily

    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.

  • Just got some beautiful brand new pictures on Ilva from New York,

    Thak you Rosie and for the nice presentation on our models.

  • Wow! she is perfect! I need to photograph her!!!

  • chi

    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.

  • rougeblues

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

  • laura


  • WOW! This is really great find, she’s amazing!!! – My blog about New Faces

  • HH

    Some new faces looks like ordinary girls who was scouted to be a model.But this one is not.She already looks like a model and very unordinary to not be one.Great find!

  • E

    Worked with her today, she honestly has the best skin of any model I have ever seen…

  • Laylah

    Classic beauty.

  • I ran into her a few days ago and she is just as captivating.
