Valeria Mazza


Valeria Mazza began modeling at age 16 in Argentina and was quickly discovered two years later by Elite Model Agency. She has modeled for top designers including Giorgio Armani, Gianfranco Ferré, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Dolce & Gabbana, among many others. She has graced the covers of more than 150 fashion magazines including “Glamour,” “Elle,” “Vogue” and the iconic “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue” with Tyra Banks. She is considered one of the elite “supermodels” of the 1990’s alongside names like Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Elle McPherson.

In addition to modeling, Mazza worked as a spokesmodel for MTV’s “House of Style.” She is now married with four children and continues to develop her own line of clothing and cosmetics sold in South America and writes a weekly column for “Clarin,” a newspaper in Argentina.
