Born in 1974, Amber Valetta’s emerald eyes were opened wide during her Arizona upbringing, during which she was snapped-up by the Linda Layman Agency at the tender age of fifteen. Within a year she was the dusty, desert face of Calvin Klein’s ‘Eternity’, and has since modelled for Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton and countless more. First appearing all bronzed and shiny on the cover of The Kinetic Issue, in 1999, shot by Bruce Weber, Amber is still a star so many years later, flashing a flirty wink on the front of The Role Model Issue, in 2012, and so many others in between. We love you, Amber!
