Ximena Huilipán Muñoz (born September 19, 1986) is a Chilean model and actress of Mapuche descent.[1][self-published source?]


At 14 years of age, Huilipán won the Elite Model Look Chile 2002 contest.[2][3] She was discovered by Dominican fashion designer Oscar de la Renta[4] for whom she modeled after having won the Elite Model Look Chile 2002. During her early career she also modeled for Carolina Herrera and was cast in a minor role in Jorge Olguín's movie Sangre eterna.[3] Later she moved further into an actor career playing a role as Lautaro's wife in a historical movie about the Arauco War between Spaniards and Mapuches.[5] She has been called "the Mapuche model" several times in the written press, but does not embody the stereotypical physical Mapuche characteristics.[4]
