Model of the Week: Marie Piovesan


Marilyn Model Mgmt
Also with: WM Model Management (mother agency)



Place of Origin:
Paris, France

Ethnic Origin:
Half French/Half Italian


How discovered:
People have been asking me to model since I was 16 but I wasn’t interested in it. I wanted to study… I did two years of fine arts and then three and a half years of archaeology… I wanted to change my point of view, discovering a brand new world so I decided to try modeling several months ago

Favorite things:
Hum… a nice concert with friends, or just stay at home with my boyfriend watching a nice movie

Favorite music, band:
Hole, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Dresden Dolls, the Pogues, Stone Roses, Jesus and Mary Chain, Joy Division, Virgin Prunes and so many more…

I still love to paint, I’m also trying to write a book (not sure yet that I am gifted enough for it :) ). I also read a lot : E.A . Poe, Dostoievsky, Gogol, Pouchkine, Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Nabokov, Shakespeare (I named my dog Othello), Cioran. My favorite book is Nadja from André Breton…

Favorite piece of clothing:
My leather jacket. It looks great, matches almost everything

What’s your idea of fun?
I couldn’t say I actually never have fun… :)

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Hard to pick one… Everything is so different. But I would say opening Céline because it pushed me out of my comfort zone, I used to be extremely shy not really the self confident type you need to be on the catwalk…

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Food!!!!!!!!!! And red wine of course!

Favorite artist (any kind):
Courtney Love, Nan Goldin, E.A. Poe, David Lynch, Botticelli

Place you would love to visit:
I love traveling. I have already been to several places but I’d like to go to Scotland and travel in North and South America (I studied a bit of Nahuatl, the Mayan language ), Syria, Jerusalem, Turkey…

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Being alive. I see so many people who walk around dead and I want to be sure I am always living

  • kely

    I agree with Xenia she looks great and fresh!

  • troy

    Gorgeous girl, looks much younger than 25. good luck to her

  • Wonderful! I L O V E the fact that not only CURVY models are more present in editorials today, but also real W O M E N, models who are above teen-age! It is so great to see 25yr. old models signing contracts and beeing “newcomers” and not “outsiders”!!! Her body is amazing and she has such an interesting face!

  • redemptn

    omg she looks like 16 which is a actually a plus
    great bone structure

  • NEX

    interesting face! she’s gorgeous, but still need to learn how to make a soft look.

  • Stunning. Very edgy, yet I can tell she can be versatile.

    Love the fact that she’s 25. She’s educated and bright.

    She’ll be big.

  • roo

    She sounds very intelligent. Love her body.


    I cannot believe that she is 25, she is absolutely stunning… very unique look and an amazing body

  • stace

    I’m loving that she’s 25 and still looks very young. I’m glad that the industry is exploring with women instead of very young teens.

    She looks like an edgier Carla Bruni.

  • Yasmin

    25 ???? I can’t believe they wrote her real age down! :-D
    Well, with that body ( :-O ) and face at that age, she definitely doesn’t have to worry!
    I wonder how her career will develop! I’m pretty sure she’ll do great for a few seasons!
    Anyway, for my taste she is a little too skinny, but I guess she really is naturally that thin…

  • kennedy

    i would love to see an editorial with her and maria bradley! actually some unique faces.

  • miguel

    Do not feel any enthusiasm for this girl,that disappointing is the fashion in this moment.

  • Emily

    There’s something quite compelling about her face. And I love that she’s got a real personality and isn’t some babyish 16 year old.

  • Jose

    The nahuatl language was not spoken by the mayas, it was spoken by the aztecs, the mayas spoke a very different language! what’s up with this girl?

  • HH

    I admire her personality very much.After all she’s 25 year old woman.Amazing bone features and fierce face.I think she can go far.

  • Dea

    she is just 25 not 40 of course she is stunning! btw i do not like her that much there’s something in her face that makes me feel weird

  • Anniken

    Beautiful! She looks so young, and her body is amazing.

  • venderra

    she is beautiful inside and out. what great taste in music and artists!

  • Meropee

    25 years old is true. I’ve done an archaeology stage with her there is 2 years. She’s so nice with me but not with the bad people, a true lioness, sarcastic, intelligent, crazy, strange ahah and strong. No borring or classic girl, she has an rapier wit. I love her. Naturally thin for sure, because to do a stage in archaeology is not really easy. Good Luck Marie.

    Noemie du stage d’archéologie à Javols, le coin ou il n’y a aucun réseau. J’ai survécu :).

  • Britty

    I’m not surprised that she is 25. She is only in her 20’s and some people have forgotten that 25-year-old women can look just as young as a 17-year old. We are so use to seeing models in their teens forgetting that 20+ year old’s aren’t that “old” looking–the media portrays this concept very well with their age limit though..

  • ann

    I’m happy that she has the chance to model although she’s 25. Gives me hope.
