Elena Santarelli was born on August 18, 1981, in Latina, Italy, a city best known for its beautiful neoclassical architecture. After years of fantasizing about becoming a model, Elena finally received a jump-start to her professional career in 1999 when she won the prestigious Elite Model Look Competition. In addition to helping increase her visibility, Elena’s victory also secured her a contract with Elite, the same modeling agency that has represented fashion icons Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour and Iman.
With Elite’s help, Elena quickly became a star on the catwalk, and she appeared in shows throughout Europe as well as in high-profile campaigns for Emporio Armani, Genny, Gattinoni, Laura Biagiotti, Gai Mattiolo, Soprani, and Fusco.
Her increased exposure led to multiple TV opportunities and in 2005 she starred in the Italian version of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, a popular reality show that put her survival skills (as well as her ability to wear a bikini) to the test. Luckily, Elena passed with flying colors and she rewarded her many fans again in 2006 with a sizzling seminude calendar produced by the Italian magazine Max. In 2006, Elena hit the big screen in Vita Smeralda, a spirited comedy starring legendary Italian actor Jerry Cala.- from www.elenasantarellifans.com
