Like so many models, Eniko Mihalik was a sassy 15-year-old when she was discovered while shopping in her native Hungary. Now 24, the stunning Eastern European beauty is well-established in Europe and joining the ranks of supermodels. Fashion magazines can’t get enough of her.
She’s appeared in i-D, V, Self Service, Vogue Japan, Numéro and Vogue Italia’s Beauty issue.
Mihalik, who is 5? 10 1/2? tall, is known for her amazing cheekbones, large doe eyes and all-around sex appeal. She is said to most resemble supermodel Daria Warbowy.

She won the Hungarian “Elite Model Look” contest in 2002 and came in fourth in the international competition, won by Ana Mihajlovic of Yugoslavia.
That kicked off her career and in 2006 she debuted on the elite runway at the fall Chanel couture show at Paris Fashion Week. From there, she walked in Emporio and Giorgio Armani shows in Milan.
After getting increasing editorial recognition in 2008, her career exploded in 2009. She was a runway “it girl,” walking in more than 50 Spring/Summer shows for the likes of Shiatzy Chen, Givenchy, Blumarine, Moschino, Diane von Furstenberg and Versace.
She darlingly appeared topless in the highly-regarded 2010 Pirelli calendar, photographed by Terry Richardson, and is currently listed at No. 28 on the models.com list of “Fifty Top Models.”
Her most recent appearance is in the April issue of Vogue Germany shoot. In the shoot, titled “Wild Mild,” Mihalik channels rebel chic at the beach. Photographer Camilla Akrans was behind the lens with styling by Nicola Knels.
