Biography of Stella Maxwell
Stella Maxwell broke into the world of fashion by accident and in just a few years has reached heights that many of her colleagues can only dream of. However, to the chagrin of the male half of the population of the Earth, the name of one of the most desirable models is mentioned not only in connection with her achievements in the fashion industry, but also in connection with her romantic relationships with famous actresses.

In 2003, when Stella was barely thirteen, the family moved to New Zealand. After graduating from college, she was supposed to go to university in Dunedin, the cultural capital of New Zealand, but admission to the famous University of Otago faded into the background after an episode that turned her life upside down.
Stella Maxwell in her youth
In 2007, in a cafe located near the university, where Stella went to have a bite to eat, she was noticed by a modeling agency scout. The beauty given by nature and parents, coupled with youth and an adventurous temperament, became the key to the future success of Stella, who agreed to take several test shots.
With a height of 175 centimeters, the fair-skinned Irish woman weighed just over 50 kilograms, her face was gentle, but boyishly impudent, which the stylists decided to emphasize, persuading Stella to make a short haircut. Usually novice models wear long hair, so Maxwell looked favorably against other girls.
For several years she modeled for a New Zealand agency based in Dunedin, mastering the intricacies of the profession and developing her own style.
In 2011, Stella moved to Paris, but did not stay in the world fashion capital for a long time and settled in New York the following year, where she was able to sign a contract with the world-famous The Lions agency, after which her career went uphill. It was with The Lions that the brilliant Verushka and Kristen McMena collaborated.

However, shooting for Marie Claire, Purple, Vogue, Elle and other glossy publications, participation in shows and advertising campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Moncler and Vivienne Westwood were just another step on Stella’s path to fame, because the main success was waiting for her ahead.
At the end of 2014, Maxwell took part in the Victoria’s Secret show for the first time and, quite expectedly, in 2015 she became one of the angels of the iconic brand of underwear, accessories and cosmetics.
In 2016, according to the American popular publication Maxim, Maxwell topped the annual top hot beauties and became the most desirable woman of the year. Also in 2016, the model became the face of the Max Factor brand.
