Julia Stegner has been compared to a young Nastassja Kinski; others have called her the new Claudia Schiffer. But Stegner has a classic beauty all her own. Her latest spread in the February issue of Vogue Germany suggests why.
Stegner is one of the more unheralded Victoria’s Secret models, but she has walked in every Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since 2005.
Check out Julia’s photos; click to enlarge.
A commanding 5’11” tall, she also graced the famed Pirelli Calendar that year. She appeared semi-nude in the stunning shoot. She exudes sophistication; so much so she was hired to be he face of Mercedes Benz.
In the Vogue shoot, Stegner models an all white wardrobe for famed photographer Greg Kadel. The spread is titled “Feel Free,” and Julia smolders in several topless shots, showcasing lace, leather and sheer and opaque fabrics. Her hair is tousled, thick and sexy.
Her breakthrough came in Paris; she made her first major cover appearance for Elle magazine. Since then, she has done editorial work and walked the runways for Hugo Boss, French fashion house Chloé and Anna Sui, Shiatzy Chen, Lanvin, Gucci, Versace and Valentino.
In 2007, the German edition of Vanity Fair named her Germany’s most beautiful woman over Alexandra Maria Lara, Heidi Klum and Claudia Schiffer. She’s stayed under the radar mostly because she places great value on her privacy, according to the article.
But there is no hiding now. Check out her photos!
