about the model
Valentina is a 21 year old model from Stuttgart, Germany, studying audio-visual media. She began modeling at 16. She chose her outfit simply (about 80% of her closet is filled with dark colors, primarily gray and black). Valentina leans towards a combination of wide fitted elements, like the trousers, with simple, tight black tops and feminine accessories. To break everything down and not make it look too feminine, she paired it heavy black boots. She believes you don't always have to wear patterns and bright colors to stand out a crowd.
