Whenever we think about supermodels, our thoughts about them are rather narrow and we are not well cultured. We only usually think about supermodels who live in the United States or in Brazil. We may also think about the supermodels who are apart of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. What also comes to mind are famed models like Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, Christy Teigen or the new generation and younger models like Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid. But the world does have a lot of beautiful models who are often overlooked in favor of these models because of their location and possibly lack of opportunity and promotion in the Western Hemisphere.
It’s not that the US models are not good, it’s just that their media promotes them a lot. However, Europe has a history of having beautiful models. If you have ever watched America’s Next Top Model, you may have remembered the beautiful Paulina Porizkova. Even when not in her prime, anyone with eyes could see that she was a knock out in her day. The former model is actually of Czechoslovakia descent despite having fled to Sweden as a kid. Continue reading below for our picks of the 15 most attractive photos of European supermodels.
15. Barbara Palvin
The 24-year-old model was born in Budapest Hungary. She has been modeling since she was thirteen and has been named as the 2016 Rookie of the Year by Sports Illustrated Swimsuits. She models for several brands including Victoria’s Secret but is not an Angel. She models for H&M and has had associations with Louis Vuitton and Chanel. Barbara has been complimented for having a very exquisite look. She has had a successful career thus far. The picture is actually what she has featured on her official Twitter page. She is very alluring and has over a million followers. The young model is very aware of her strong angles and uses that to her advantage. Maybe in the future, she will consider an acting career like models before her.
14. Irina Shayk
Irina Shayk or Sheik was one of the faces of the Intimissimi lingerie company from 2007 to 2010. She is still a brand Ambassador. Her career also included a stint with Victoria’s Secret but she was not one of their Angels. She also worked with Guess and Lacoste and was featured on the cover of several magazines. Irina was hated for a bit by the female football fandom because she dated Real Madrid and Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo for five years. Now, she is with Bradley Cooper and the couple has a daughter together. The photo was taken in Italy when she attended the Intimissimi On Ice. The Russian model does not even look as though she had a baby just earlier this year which is another reason to be jealous of the supermodel.
13. Jourdan Dunn
Jourdan Dunn is also another young model to make the list. She is currently 27, but in 2008, she walked Prada’s Runway and was the first black person to do that in more than ten years! The British model was the face of Maybelline New York in 2014. There were a lot of firsts or iconic moments in her career as she was also the first black person to be on the cover of the British Vogue magazine. She has been modeling since she was sixteen and it comes as no surprise as she is actually six-feet tall and with the perfect height, face and body shape. She still has a lot to do, but Dunn has already won herself several awards and has appeared in several music videos, a handful of films and television shows. She has also walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
12. Lily Donaldson
British supermodel Lily Donaldson has worked with big names like Alexander McQueen, Hugo Boss, Gucci, Versace and even Burberry. She has been on the cover of American and British Vogue. She has also represented their Chinese, Italian, Australian, Japanese and other country editions of Vogue. In the London Olympics, Lily was honored to model a gown by British designer Vivienne Westwood for the closing ceremony. The five feet and ten inches model has blue eyes and blonde hair. Unlike her modeling colleagues, it does not seem as though she has a desire for acting. She is close friends with Australian model Gemma Ward and Romanian model Irina Lăzăreanu. Gemma has an interest in acting and Irina has an interest in music. So it is a bit strange that Lily has chosen only to stick to modeling.
11. Olga Kurylenko

Olga Kurylenko is a French citizen who was a part of the Ukrainian Soviet Union. Despite having her French citizenship, she now resides in London. Olga started modeling at the age of thirteen when she was scouted in Moscow. These days, she is more into acting than modeling. In terms of acting, she has had roles in Hitman, Quantum of Solace as a bond girl. She is expected to appear in an upcoming Johnny English movie. In the picture, Olga is attending an event at the Paris Fashion Week by Elie Saab. She is wearing a short, black halter romper with some very stylish ankle boots. Her style is chic and very reminiscent of her past modeling career. At least we get to see her on screen now.
10. Selita Ebanks
Selita Ebanks is really a Caribbean born model who has had most of her career in the European area. If you were a fan of fashion, you would have seen her modeling for Ralph Lauren and Neiman Marcus’ brands. She has also been featured in Vogue and Sports Illustrated magazines. Selita is a former Victoria’s Secret Angel, so you may have seen her in their catalogs and in their runway shows. Selita has also been in the Celebrity Apprentice and Real Husbands of Hollywood. In the image, she is pictured wearing a white designer dress as she attends the Gold Medal of Honor for Lifetime Achievement in Music Award. She has paired the dress with a gold necklace and long curls. The former model certainly takes an excellent picture.
9. Elsa Pataky
There are a lot of reasons to hate Elsa Pataky. We hate her a little just because she is married to Chris Hemsworth and has three beautiful kids with him. She also never looks as if she was pregnant whenever you see her post baby pictures. We sort of love her because she and Chris look perfect together on film and we just can’t help but be happy for them. The goddess of thunder not only models but she also has an acting career. She was a cast member in Fast and Furious 5, 6 and 7 as Elena Neves. She also stood in for Natalie Portman in Thor: The Dark World. She was not credited for the role though.
8. Cara Delevingne
Cara Delevingne was born in London, United Kingdom. The 25-year-old has won the model of the year in 2012 and 2014 at the British Fashion Awards. Cara’s career is huge, and she has worked for Burberry and Chanel. If Cara was not known before, then she was surely known when she played the role of the Enchantress in the movie Suicide Squad. There was no need for Cara to model though, because she comes from a wealthy family. She grew up in Belgravia which is probably the wealthiest area in the world. Cara has had notable alliances with Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana. It has been speculated that she and Kendall Jenner have a very close friendship. Cara was also able to walk in a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
7. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a 30-year-old English model. If ever you go through a Victoria’s Secret catalog, you may have seen her on their pages as the model is a former Victoria’s Secret Angel. Besides working with Victoria’s Secret, she was able to work with Burberry and Mark and Spencer. She has had an active career for almost fifteen years. She is engaged and has one child. She has a bit of an acting career and appeared in Transformers: Dark of the Moon as Carly Spencer. She also appeared in Mad Max: Fury Road alongside Tom Hardy. In the picture, the former VS model is wearing a mini low-cut white dress as she heads over the Coca-Cola Life drink in London. We can’t wait to see what she wears for her wedding.
6. Kelly Brook
Kelly Brook is another English model who has been successful enough to make the list. She is 38 and was born in Kent. She has worked in both the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2005, Kelly was the Sexiest Woman in the World according to FHM in 2005. She has been a star on One Big Happy, a sitcom on NBC, and she has also been on Celebrity Juice. Her career began when she was sixteen. She won a beauty competition and it propelled her into the life she knows today by giving her lots of opportunities. In the picture, Kelly wears a daring black dress and wears it bra-less. The flash of the camera leaves very little to the imagination. Brook is very daring, so it is no surprise that she wore the dress at all.
5. Doutzen Kroes
Doutzen Kroes is also a former Victoria’s Secret Angel. The 32-year-old model is a Dutch citizen who resides in both Amsterdam and New York. Her career started in 2003 and she was an ambassador for L’Oréal Paris for about ten years. In 2005, just two years after starting her career, she received a Model of the Year Award from Vogue.com. She is one of the highest grossing models in the world. Thus far, she has been on the cover of eight Vogue magazines. She wants to do some acting and appeared in both Wonder Woman and Justice League as an Amazon warrior. The picture was taken during an interview with the model and her hair is pictured blowing in the wind. She is also wearing a lovely blue that contrasts well with her skin tone.
4. Lara Stone
Lara Stone is a blonde Dutch model who works her desirable proportions really well. She fits the standard stereotype of a model with her Barbie-like physique. She is five feet ten inches and weighs roughly about one hundred and thirty pounds. She is 34. She has two children but has managed to maintain her model-like figure. Lara has worked with Vogue Paris, Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Versace, H&M and was the face of a Prada fragrance. It seems as though most models have a desire to appear in film and television because she too has a bit of an acting career. One show she acted in was used in the Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony in 2016. Hopefully, her acting career kicks off as well as other models.
3. Joanna Krupa
Joanna Krupa was born in Poland. She is 38, five feet seven inches and has blue eyes and blonde hair. She has had a successful career as a cover model and was even named the sexiest swimsuit model in the world by Maxim. She also won model of the year and was ranked in the list of the World’s Hottest Women. Two of the covers she modeled for were for Playboy. In 2009, Krupa appeared live on the reality show competition Dancing with the Stars. The ballet she would have done as a child helped a lot but it did not spare her from elimination. She has had some small acting roles and even stared in the reality series The Real Housewives of Miami.
2. Laetitia Casta
Laetitia Casta is a French model who is remembered for being a Guess Girl and a Victoria’s Secret Angel. It seems as though most models got a career boost by working for Victoria’s Secret or did it at one point in their life. Her time on the runway was spent modeling for the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Ralph Lauren, Roberto Cavalli, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton. She has also appeared on the covers of Vogue, Elle, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan and Glamour Magazines. Like Lara Stone, the short film she acted in was featured at the Cannes Film Festival. She has been active as an actress since 1999. Casta has three children and got married earlier this year to boyfriend Louis Garrel who is a French actor. We wish her marital bliss.

Natalia Vodianova is a Russian born model who is simply ageless. At 35 and with five children, she still maintains a very youthful appearance. She did not have the best of lives, but modeling saw her earning seven figures with Calvin Klein. She was actually listed as one of the highest paid models by Forbes in 2012. She has worked with several high-end fashion houses like Prada, Givenchy, Chanel, Gucci and Versace to name a few. She has also appeared on the covers of Vanity Fair (in several countries), Vogue, Marie Claire and GQ to name a few magazines. In 2010, if you watched the movie Clash of the Titans, you would have probably commented on how beautiful Medusa was. Well, Natalia was actually the actress playing Medusa in the movie.
