KARLINA CAUNE

This young Latvian shares a striking resemblance to a young Michelle Pfeiffer and has plans to get a military education post-modelling. Meet Karlina Caune.

Karline Caune’s career took off back in 2010 when she entered and won Ford’s Supermodel of the World competition. In the five years since, the young Latvian has been on the cover of French Vogue and Glamour, as well as Cover Magazine and H&M Magazine’s fall 2013 issue. She has walked shows for an abundance of fashion powerhouses and landed campaigns for Armani, Givenchy, Jil Sander, Stella McCartney and Tom Ford.

On top of everything, the 21-year-old is now the brand ambassador for Elizabeth Arden.

Evidently Karlina’s modelling career is extremely successful (she has made The Money Girls list at MODELS.com), but her current line of work is in stark contrast to what she wanted to do in her teens. 

At 16, one of her life ambitions was to serve in Latvia’s military and she joined the Youth Guard, were she learned marching and navigating. To this day she still wants to get a military education, and maybe the marching practice has been to her advantage on the runway. 

During a recent shoot with H&M, the 21-year-old took time to fill out our Top Model Secret’s questionnaire. Scroll on to find out what they are!
