The name might not be glamorous, but Constance Jablonski is turning 23 years old today–that being April 17, 2014–as one of the fashion world’s most glamourous gals. We’re still thinking that the fantastic Frenchwoman is kind of underrated. Not by the fashion industry, of course. Constance started out in 2006 as an amateur competing in the French Elite Model Look Contest of 2006. She made a real impression, and Constance Jablonski was a hot name on the the catwalks of Milan and New York City by 2008.
Constance has modeled for fashion houses like Zac Posen, Donna Karan, Dior, Shiatzy Chen, Gucci, and Yves Saint Laurent. Which is all very nice, but Constance Jablonski really caught guys’ eyes when she made the very important move to modeling for Victoria’s Secret in 2010. That’s when she made her first appearance in the company’s regular November fashion show. That’s also the same year that Constance became one of the faces of cosmetics company Estée Lauder, for even more mainstream exposure.
And yet we still don’t hear Constance Jablonski regularly invoked as a fave Victoria’s Secret model. We certainly rank her up there with the likes of Behati Prinsloo, Adriana Lima, Doutzen Krous, Jourdan Dunn, and Karlie Kloss. Constance might just not spend enough time in America to become a proper celebrity, or maybe she’s too mainstream of a model to a big part of male fandom.
But as you can see in the gallery below, it’s easy to celebrate Constance’s birthday with some really daring pics. Check them out and see why it’s time to reconsider Constance as a favorite lingerie model–not that we’re suggesting narrowing down that list…
