Magali Amadei (born November 30, 1974) is a French fashion model living in New York City. She was featured regularly during the '90s on the covers of Vogue,[1] ELLE, and Marie Claire, as well as several other top magazines with global distribution. In addition, Amadei has appeared in several nationally run TV commercials as well as interviews for documentaries and exposés on the modeling industry.

Amadei was discovered at age 16 while studying ballet at The Opera House in Nice.[2] She has often been compared to a young Sophia Loren for her stunning resemblance and her natural beauty. Amadei appeared briefly in an independent film in 1997 called Blood Trail produced by actor Barry Tubb, though the film was never picked up for distribution. She has since been cast in supporting roles in several television and film productions.

Amadei suffered from the eating disorder bulimia[3] for seven years,[4] and sought help after passing out at a photo shoot. She now travels to schools to share her experience.
