Model of the Week: Nadja Bender


Nathalie Models
Also with: New York Model Management / Fashion / Gossip Model Management (mother agency)


180cm (5’11”)

Place of Origin:
Copenhagen, Denmark

Ethnic Origin:
All Danish


How discovered:
Facebook, and then it just went pretty fast from there.

Favorite things:
I love being cultural when I am back in Copenhagen. I go to museums, the botanical garden and other kinds of exhibitions around the city with my friends – we always make a day out of it. I also love reading books and watching movies – especially Japanese movies.

Favorite music, band:
Right now I’m listening to Eddie Vedder, Tina Dickow, White Lies, José Gonzalez and Agnes Obel plus some others. I love music, I always have my iPod with me, it is my lifesaver.

Hmm, I don’t really have any beside reading, my family and my cooking lessons which I am taking at my girlfriends since she is the best cook I know.

Favorite piece of clothing:

What’s your idea of fun?
Spending time with my friends and my boyfriend. Love when we do play-nights where we stay up until late night playing games while we drink and eat cake, it is so cosy.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
That would be Paris fashion week, even though I was busy I just had the best time. My booker from Copenhagen came with me and we just had so much fun – plus I got to do some really cool shows and meet some very interesting and exciting people.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
That it is close to the sea and that my parents lives there. In general I just really like Denmark, because it is a small and cosy country.

Favorite artist (any kind):
I would say Henri Matisse, I really think that all his work is amazing.

Place you would love to visit:
I would really like to go to St. Petersburg, Russia. I am really into the culture and the history, plus I’ve heard that the city is incredibly beautiful in the winter season.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I’m obsessed with good old Danish food – maybe because I am never home, so I really miss it. Also with books – the old classic ones.

    Beautiful girl with potential to be a great model, plus she isn’t “empty”, she is nice and seems very smart, and I am sure she is.

  • miguel

    What a disappoinment!,an runway model?,but beautiful eyes and mouth.As Raquel Zimmermann,(boring).

  • erika

    I’m not seeing much standout material here besides height…. my opinion is that “Luma” (brasilian girl) should have been MOTW… now THAT is a model!

  • Yasmin

    Cool new face!!! She does remind me a little of Raquel in the first picture, I think it’s the mouth area…

    (I wonder how girls are being scouted on Facebook to become a model… Are scouts randomly clicking through profiles? Don’t the girls block their profile?)

  • Jess

    beautiful mouth and bone structure :) she’ll do just fine.
    also, thumbs up for smart girls. i’m so over the whole concept of “i dont read coz i have no time” or when they have been travelling for years and cant even speak english properly. i mean…
