The face of Fendi.

According to Vogue (United Kingdom), Nadja Bender was scouted at the age of 21 when a neighbour put in a good for her. Two years after at 23, she is noted “as a firm favourite of Karl Lagerfeld’s”. Now, she is the face of Fendi (Spring / Summer 2014) but you must know that before embarking on modeling, she was a full-time nanotechnologist who studied physics and chemistry at university.

I thought I was too old to be a model,” she jokes. “It wasn’t really something I had considered – I didn’t know anything about fashion. But I love it and I’m going to go back to university and maybe study history or criminology, whatever I find interesting,” adds Bender.
