As in all such things, especially in the world of modeling, there is always that one fresh face that has yet to be discovered.
If there is one country that has produced its fair share of runway beauties, it is France.
For all the long-held stereotypes that us Americans have about the French, in being art-loving, condescending snobs and their lack of military might, France has provided so much to America in the form of the Statue of Liberty, helped a fledgling America defeat Britain and provide some of the current food terms that we use in film, food and cinema.
Look no further than former Victoria’s Secret supermodel Laetitia Casta, all-time sex symbols such as Catherine Deneuve and Brigette Bardot and current models-turned-movie stars such as Sophie Marceau, Marion Cotillard, Melanie Laurent, Eva Green, Vanessa Paradis and Lea Seydoux.
While she is not known yet, could 24-year-old glamour model Anais Bessege be the next in a long line of head-turning French stunners?
Born in the small central town of Montlucon located in the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region, the fair-skinned, angelic-looking Bessege could be the next in a long line of models to call France home.
Thanks to a gorgeous combination of eye-catching curves, mesmerizing green eyes and the classy look of an angel ready to sin, the 5’4 Bessege not only has her sights set on conquering the world of modeling, but also fashion as well.
