Magdalena Frackowiak (born Magdalena Frąckowiak on 8 October 1985) is a Polish fashion model.
Magdalena is famous for walking the 2010 and 2012-2015 Victoria's secret Fashion Shows.
Magdalena Frackowiak is from Gdańsk, Poland. She began her modelling career when her mother sent her pictures to a Warsaw agency's contest to find new models.
Of course pretty Magdalena won, and Darek Kumosa of the Model Plus Agency signed her. She later switched to DNA Model Management.
Magdalena began getting covers around 2007, and here is a small sampling:
- March Harper's Bazaar Korea
- July The Edit
- February Zoo Magazine, glass UK
- January Elle Italy
- August Vogue Mexico
- September Vogue Collections China, Mixte Magazine
- July Lui France
- June Vogue Turkey
- April W Korea
- October Numéro Tokyo
- September Elle Poland
- July Vogue Portugal
- February Vogue Brazil
Besides walking in the Victoria's Secret fashion shows, Magdalena also has appeared in the Victoria's 2011 and 2012 (and most likely other) catalogs, such as the PINK catalog.
She was in the prestigious 2011 Pirelli calendar photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, and has walked for all the top designers. According to Vogue Paris - which should know - she is one of the top 30 models of the 2000s.
Magdalena Frackowiak did not walk in the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion show, causing some to wonder if perhaps she was retiring from the runway. The answer is, no, Magdalena had no intention of retiring.
There is an alternate explanation. It arises from an incident during the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
An interviewer decided to ask a seemingly innocuous question. This started the ball rolling. A ball that started rolling downhill.
This started Magdalena thinking about what the question might be driving at. She did not like the answer that she came up with. Magdalena gave a tart reply.
Then, Magdalena decided to expound on her tart reply.
Well, let's go through it.
What? No guys, not with these kinds of questions, this is stupid! Ask more smart questions, not eating after the show. You make me look like an idiot. It seems like I'm starving myself and I can't wait for the show to end so I can eat.While some applauded Magdalena's spunk, that did not go over well with some of the media people. A major goal of fashion shows is to get positive publicity for the brands, so who knows if that interchange factored into the company's decision.
However, Magdalena Frackowiak may just be too busy to walk in all the shows. In mid-2015, Magdalena launched her own jewelry brand, Magdalena Frąckowiak.
