Barbara Palvin was relatively unknown in the celebrity world until last week. Even though we see her lingerie-clad body almost everywhere these days, aside from her looks, she’s a mystery.
After being spotted with Justin Bieber at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and then again at a Broadway performance of The Lion King with the pop star, rumors flew that the two were hooking up. And to adoring Jelena fans’ surprise, news broke this weekend that he and longtime girlfriend, Selena Gomez, split.
Although we all know what Justin Bieber would do if Barbara was, in fact, his girlfriend, the question still remains: Who is this mysterious Victoria’s Secret model? Here are five things we know about Barbara Palvin:
1. She works hard for her money.
Barbara launched her career in Budapest at the tender age of 13. Now 19, this Hungarian model is not only a VS Angel, but she graces the covers of international magazines like Elle and Harper’s Bazaar and spearheads the ad campaigns for brands like L’Oréal Paris and H&M.
2. She’s not your average model — she’s fun-size!
Unlike the 6’2” models that grace the runways, Barbara is a mere 5’7”! She’s basically a Polly Pocket in the industry, but her gorgeous blue eyes and pouty lips help her stand out.
3. She’s turning Japanese, we think she’s turning Japanese, we really think so.
Barbara is obsessed with Japanese animation films (aka anime) and manga, according to her Facebook page.
4. She strikes hard and fast.
We also learned that she takes life by the (soccer) balls, playing the striker position on the field and watching games on TV, too. But she has a soft side, too, also singing Hungarian folk songs in her free time.
5. She’s a taken lady!
After Fan Daily reported that Barbara had been dating a business student named Kristof Somfai, fans took to Twitter to ask if they were still together. She quickly set the record straight, tweeting, “Yes I am!”
It looks like this model isn’t going anywhere, so we might as well embrace her — whether Justin Bieber did or not! What do you think of Barbara? Tell us below.
