3. She Studied Fashion In College
Modeling wasn’t her first career choice; she just sort of fell into it. Monika attended the the London College of Fashion, according to LA Splash, then went on to be a TV fashion expert in London on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast and MTV. It wasn’t until she was discovered by Select Modeling Agency that she started her modeling career.
4. Monika Is Croatia’s First Supermodel
The 33-year-old is known as “The Croatian Sensation,” according to LA Splash, and is the first supermodel from the European country. Monika also feels great pride about her hometown. On her Twitter she describes herself as “a daughter from a war torn country of Croatia .”
5. She Loves Roses
If you browse through her Twitter pics, you can tell she’s a sucker for roses. She’s received quite a number of bouquets since June — we hope those are from George! (If not, maybe he’ll take a hint!)
