Four years ago, Charlotte di Calypso won one of modeling’s most prestigious coups: the worldwide Elite Model Look contest. Following her win, the flaxen-haired model debuted at Prada’s spring 2006 show and modeled for Topshop’s fall 2006 print ads. In 2007, she signed on as the face of Chanel’s Chance fragrance, scoring some serious exposure in stores and glossies worldwide. Strangely, the following year proved to be quite a lull in her career — she barely popped up in any editorials or campaigns. But don’t count her out just yet, as her career has just been reignited. She closed out the fall 2009 Christian Dior couture show, became one of the new faces of Ralph Lauren (alongside Tao Okamoto), and booked spreads in British Harper’s Bazaar and French Vogue. Looks like she’s back in good form.
