A Closer Look at Barbara Palvin: 10 Things to Know about Justin Bieber's New Ladylove [PHOTOS]

  on November 13 2012 4:02 PM

The name Barbara Palvin quickly became a sensation when Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez broke-up. Is the Victoria's Secret model the popstar's new obsession? Take a closer look at the sexy model.

1.       The 19-year-old model was born on October 8, 1993, in Budapest, and was discovered in its streets at the young age of 13.

2.       Barbara first appeared in the pages of Glamour Hungary, Vogue Russia, L'Officiel and Jalouse Magazine. She has also modeled for Pull and Bear, H&M, and Armani Exchange, and Victoria's Secret.

3.       Palvin became L'Oreal Paris' ambassador in February 2012.

4.       Palvin's runway debut was in a Prada fashion show in 2010, during the Milan Fashion Week.

5.       Barbara's favorite model is Kate Moss.

6.       The 19-year-old is ranked at the 40th spot in models.com list of top 50 models worldwide.

7.       The model stands 5 feet, 7 inches, and measures 31-23-35. No wonder Bieber was attracted to her tiny waist and doll-like features!

8.       Her twitter account (@BarbaraPalvin) has over 138,000 followers and the number continues to rise after her quick affair with Justin Bieber.

9.       Barbara likes to play soccer, singing, and is a big fan of Japanese animes (mangas). We'd love to see her dress up as a Japanese schoolgirl if that's not really a trouble for her.

10.   Palvin is already taken, by Hungarian business student, Kristof Somfai. Although many are saying that the model is the reason behind Justin and Selena's break-up (which could be true), it seems that Palvin already has a boyfriend and has nothing to do with the high-profile split. Could this be a case of false publicity or a "love square?"
