biography

Nationality: United Kingdom
After a 7 year break and taking time off to have 3 children, Vivien Solari returns to the scene in 2013 with a bang, her first shoot back was for Vogue Paris by Mert and Marcus. It's a homecoming of sorts as Mert and Marcus photographed her just as they were taking off in the early 00's.

Born on the Caribbean island of Aruba, brought up in Manchester and educated at Leicester University, Vivien Solari’s illustrious modelling career began when she was spotted at 19, studying in her first year for a degree in Psychology. Within a few months she worked with Italian Vogue and had a lucrative fragrance campaign with Versace causing her to put her studies on hold. “I had a bump on my nose and thought models had to be perfect,” she remembers. Ironically, this minor imperfection along with her “blank canvas beauty” has since become her trademark.

Vivien has a classical beauty that transcends any era. She has the rare ability to flip from high-octane glamour queen to hippie chick to timeless beauty in a flash. As a result of her chameleon-like abilities she has been the face of campaigns for brands as diverse as Calvin Klein and Issey Miyake, appealing equally to the commercial side and the cutting edge. She has worked with the world’s most talented photographers including Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Craig McDean, Bruce Weber, Paolo Roversi, Inez and Vinoodh and Nick Knight. Her numerous work included covers for French, British and German Vogue, Italian Marie Claire and Surface. Vivien has worked with clients such as Giorgio Armani, Jil Sander, Vera Wang, Burberry, Swarovski and Valentino.
