Born on October 6, 1984 in Poland, Magdalena was discovered when her mother sent her pictures to a Warsaw agency's modelling contest. She won, & was scouted by Darek Kumosa of Model Plus Agency. She has gone on to appear on the covers of Japanese, Italian, German, Korean, Portuguese & Russian Vogue & French Numéro as well as appearing in editorials for American, British, Spanish, Mexico/ Latin America & French Vogue, V, Pop, Harper's Bazaar, i-D & Allure. She has also been in ads for Givenchy, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Prada & Gianfranco Ferré.

I think it’s pretty obvious what I like most about Magdalena considering my love of cheekbones, I just love her bone structure, she has such an incredible face. In my mind, the symmetry of her face is perfect, and because she is such a good model she has learnt how to position her face so that in every picture you see of her no matter which way she is facing, her bone structure stands out. People always use the saying ‘legs for days’ to describe someone with long legs, well Magdalena has ‘cheekbones for weeks’.

Magdalena is another model I have been seeing for a while, but it was not until I saw the November 2011 issue of Vogue that I noticed what a great model she was. The pictures were so simple and in black and white but she really stood out. Under all the hair and great styling, her face structure still stole the show.
