Laetitia Casta Did A Bad Bad Thing

Oct 3, 2011 By Amy

Hats off to Laetitia Casta, because she has the career girls (and boys) in the modeling world dream of. Not only has she achieved lasting status in the industry, she’s also been able to branch off from posing in front of the camera to acting in front of it. With a staggering 100+ magazine covers under her belt, it’s hard to believe that Casta is only 33 and has two children. She was discovered at just 15 in Corsica by a scout, now her IMDb page is almost as impressive as her MyFDB page.

Back in February, the model raised some eyebrows with this hot cover for Purple magazine, where she’s seductively posing with a statue; she was of course shot by Terry Richardson. What’s interesting about Casta, and unlike other models, her industry work has remained pretty consistent throughout the years. She started off with contracts with Guess? and Victoria’s Secret and has continued to attract big names. Just this past summer she was one of the faces of Roberto Cavalli and has remained a staple face for L’Oreal Paris. She’s even had an entire Vogue Paris spread dedicated to her.

On the acting front Laetitia’s cinematic debut was in none other than the most expensive French flick ever produced, Astérix et Obélix contre César (1999). The film was a huge hit in Europe and stateside you may recall seeing Casta workin’ it as the sultry vixen in Chris Isaak’s 1999 video for “Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing” and more recently in a video for Rihanna. Don’t pin her as a video girl though, because her ability to take on diverse parts translates from her modeling work and into her acting roles. We can’t wait to see more from this stylish chameleon!
