Name: Daniela Pestova
Birth: October 14, 1970
Place of Birth: Teplice, Czechoslovakia
Daniela was born on October 14, 1970, in Teplice, Czechoslovakia. Daniela is a stunning international super model, at 5’11” with blonde hair and blue eyes, she looks like the all-American girl.
She grew up in the presence of the Iron Curtain where there wasn't much of hope of having a successful life. Daniela had the dream of attending a college and getting her degree in Education. At the age of nineteen, she was 'discovered' by Dominique Caffin of the Madison modeling agency while in Prague. He convinced Daniela to enter a local modeling competition, and she ended up winning.
Caffin then took her to Paris to sign with the Madison agency. Daniela Pestova was picked out by Paul Marciano, president and creative director of "Guess" to model in some of the most memorable advertisements in the company's history. Ellen Von Unwerth took the photos of Daniela, alongside Claudia Schiffer in Morocco. Daniela, who is fluent in Italian, Russian, French and Czech, but only spoke small amounts of
English, moved to New York.
Daniela soon appeared on the covers of magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamour and Marie Claire. She landed a major contract with the cosmetics company L'Oreal, and become their spokesperson and print model. Daniela also entered into a contract to appear in the famous Victoria's Secret catalogue.
Daniela Pestova has made many huge accomplishments, and two of the most important, she says, were marrying her husband, Tomasso Buti, and giving birth to their son, Yannick Fausto. Buti, conveniently enough, was the former CEO of the flailing Fashion Cafe. Buti resigned from his management role at the model-fronted eatery amid allegations that he squandered funds. Unfortunately, Daniela called it quits with Buti in 1998 and the two got divorced soon afterwards.
