Career[edit]

Monrose began her modeling career in 2010 at the age of 18, when she was discovered by Your Angels Models, a local modeling agency in her native Martinique. Just weeks after signing with Your Angels Models[1] Monrose began working with Wilhelmina in New York and Silent models in Paris.[2] Debuting during the S/S 2011 collections in New York, Monrose has since walked the runway for top designers including Michael Kors, Bottega Veneta, Lanvin, Miu Miu, and Yves Saint Laurent.[3] After her first runway season Monrose was named a top 10 new face by Style.com,[4] Models.com,[5] and COACD.[6] In July 2011 Monrose left Wilhelmina for Silent models, which now represents her in both New York and Paris.[7]

Monrose has appeared in Vogue Italia, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue Turkey, Interview, Dazed and Confused, and V Magazine.[8] She was photographed by Mario Testino for the F/W 2011 D&G ad campaign.[9]

Personal life[edit]

Before becoming a model Monrose dreamed of a career as a designer.[2] Deeply interested in fashion, in a January 2011 interview with Vogue Italia she named John Galliano, Zac Posen, Tom Ford, and Marc Jacobs as her favorite designers.[10]
