Vera Jordanova was born in Helsinki, Finland to Bulgarian parents. She is fluent in Finnish, English and Bulgarian (which is similar to Russian). Vera also can converse in Spanish and French.
Vera started modeling around 17 years old, scouted locally in Helsinki by a Finnish agency. From there she began modeling in Finland, Barcelona (where she also lived for 3 years), Milano, Paris, Madrid, Hamburg (Germany), Cape Town (South Africa -where she also lived for a bit), Los Angeles (where she lived prior to New York), Miami and New York (where she currently resides).
A seasoned model, she has other business opportunities in the works which are “top secret” according to her (of course I know an inkling of what is in the mix – but sworn to secrecy). Much of her modeling and acting career has benefitted her with networking, making personal and business contacts. However, she still follows traditional routines as other model-actresses.
Some might remember her from the popular movie Hostel: Part II, which she played the sexy character Axelle. Vera also has been in numerous television series in Europe for more than 10 years. I can see why she is loved on film and photos with a sexy-desirable “girl next door look”, that never quite lives next door (unless you live in Monaco or Milano). We just don’t quite see nearly 6 feet tall with animal attraction beauties everyday of the week!
Her likes and dislikes about the modeling business (which she has begun winding down recently as moves towards more commercial but still creative business ventures):
Since she is a fan of fine wine and lychee martinis, these might help ease the pain of a difficult work day on occasion. She mentioned that she also enjoys watermelon lemonade but I think a little bit of vodka might also be a nice addition to her recipe.
More than just modeling, acting and perhaps traveling has made her creative talent come to surface. That’s not to say her modeling is not important, as she has photographed with top or leading photographers from around the world. But I do believe she is being modest with her dream of writing a cook book. She will probably write an entire series of cook books. Perhaps she will develop some high fashion or highly publicised cooking show or modern dietary program that will aid aspiring models from passing out on shoots. In other words, she has clearly shown her capability of accomplishing more than the basic modeling or acting so why should she settle for a basic cook book? We will wait for that answer.
The girl next door who as a child and adolescent, was extremely gifted in math and even competed. She claims that she “loved solving equations in my spare time” when in school and is “still pretty nerdy”. I’m anxious to get the insside scoop on her latest business venture, which is not so far away from the fashion world but not so close to call it a “fashion business”. - (but close)
Vera Jordanova, an experienced and wise woman in the fashion and entertainment world still carving out further success for herself. She offers insight into the modeling world and shares a passion for life that so many lack. Looking fine and speaking plainly, she overshadows so many of the common attractive models and actresses that flood the streets of New York and Los Angeles. To be top of the food chain (as she is indeed) it comes from the manner or character of the individual. With financial opportunity shrinking in the global modeling industry, she is headed for higher ground.
