'Meet the icon who has been on top of the game for over 20 years.

Mariacarla Boscono is evergreen. Since making her debut on the Comme des Garçons runway in 1997, the Italian beauty has managed to stay just as relevant and in demand as she was as a fresh-faced 16-year-old. The 37-year-old is still one of the brightest shining stars in modelling, and her enchanting dark eyes have captivated all the industry heavyweights – from designers Riccardo Tisci and Karl Lagerfeld to editor Carine Roitfeld and photographer Tim Walker. So, it's no surprise that model directory MODELS.com encourages everyone to take a bow.

This winter, she stars alongside Nicki Minaj, Anna Ewers and Charlee Fraser in H&M's magical holiday campaign. Obviously, we had to ask her to spill some of her secrets.
