Model: Aurelie Claudel
Hometown: I was born in France, but I call NYC home.
Discovered: In Paris when I was 13. I was pouting about being dragged to museums — I looked so bad, I don't know why I was noticed!
Celeb I'd loved to have met: Barry White so he could put me to sleep with that voice.
Funniest fashion moment: At the Victoria's Secret show, Sean Penn walked by, and at that moment I asked a waiter, "May I have some champagne?" But with my accent, it sounded like "Sean Penn." He turned around and said, "Yes, you may."
