Georgina Grenville (born 1 September 1975) is a South African fashion model. She has had a long career and continues to model, appearing on the runway as recently as the 2014 Spring/Summer Proenza Schouler show in New York.
Georgina is from Durban, Natal, South Africa. At the tender age of 14, she entered the South African 1990 Elite 'Look of the Year' contest and did well, winning the opening round.
So, Georgina flew to Milan, modelled for a while, was not too impressed, and gave it up.
The modelling bug bit hard, though, and she ultimately returned to modelling. Ultimately, Georgina wound up in New York signed with Next Agency.
