I don't mind. Take me to i-D.co anyway

Late to the game, but by no means a small player, Polish beauty Malgosia Bela launched onto the scene at the age of 21. Spending her youth studying classical music, it wasn’t until she moved to New York that she got her big break. Since then she’s walked for all the major fashion houses, including Balenciaga, Givenchy and Miu Miu and done campaigns for Chanel Beauty, Chloé, and Alexander Wang. After taking a short break from the modeling industry to pursue a career in acting, she came back with a bang in 2006, landing a campaign for Lanvin and appearing on the pages of Vogue, Interview, and of course, i-D. Most recently, she represented the letter ‘H’, for Heroes (she’s ours) in i-D’s A-Z of Wink! Last year she married hubby Jean-Yves Le Fur in a fairytale wedding. The bride wore a vintage Alaïadress that she got from 1stdibs – although her old pal Azzedine gave it a few tweaks. Bela by name, bella by nature.
