Rose Cordero is one of the newest models whose striking features and lithe frame has booked her many a show with some of the fashion industry’s top designers. Born and raised in the tropical island of the Dominican Republic, this 19 year-old Latin beauty has a long, lucrative career ahead of her. She got her start back in 2005 while playing volleyball in elementary school. Sandro Guzman, a world renown model scout happened to notice her gorgeous bone structure and long, lean body and urged her to sign up with an agency. A year later, Rose Cordero decided to take a leap of faith and called Sandro Guzman who quickly arranged for her to go to New York and meet with various model agencies. She signed with Ford Models and by 2009 was walking her first runway for Burberry. She’s walked several runways since then, including Rodarte, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton and 3.1 Philip Lam.
