Eva Riccobono biography
Bio:Eva was born in 1983 in Palermo, the biggest city in Sicily. Her mother is from Germany, her father is Sicilian with Norman descent (like most people in that place). She has 3 older sisters and a brother who died when she was 4.
At 14, Eva was introduced to the fashion world by photographer Luca LoBosco. When she was only 17, the Italian magazine Corriere della Sera named her "the new Laetitia Casta" because her face (but not her body) is quite similar to Casta's. From that moment, she became one of the most important Italian fashion models and started travelling between Milan, New York, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, London, Rome, Hamburg, Tokyo, and Los Angeles. She has appeared in magazines such as Vogue, Elle, and Cosmopolitan. She has also posed for the Pirelli Calendar in 2003.
In 2002, she appeared on the TV program Stasera pago io with host Fiorello, who is also from Sicily.
In 2006, she caused a scandal when she said that "anorexia and alimentary disorders between young girls are because of fashion system" and "stylists are guilty of it" in an interview of the Italian magazine Grazia about the death of Ana Carolina Reston.
