Arlenis Sosa Pena
Born in 1989 in the Dominican Republic, the 19 year old bronzed beauty was a runner-up in the Elite Model competition in the Dominican Republic in 2006. This past march she walked into Marilyn Agency and was immediately signed; two weeks later she was booked for editorials with Vogue & Italian Vogue. Arlenis debut show was for Banana Republic in N.Y., follow that she walked at the resort shows of Christian Dior & Oscar de la Renta, who with one glance decided to dress the new shimmering sensation for the Met Costume Ball and sat her at his table. No one seems to know what is it about this new girl that within a week of her fresh modeling career finds herself posing for photographers like Mario Testino & Steven Meisel.
