A girl with elven eyes, who was called the most beautiful in the world: What Laneya Grace looks like and what she does?


This girl began to conquer the world's catwalks at the age of three, when she first starred in advertising. When Laneya Grace was five, she was called the most beautiful girl in the world. She was not only beautiful, but at the same time she was very different from her peers, she was unlike anyone else and was proud of her individuality. This was also appreciated by various brands, which vied with each other to offer the little model’s parents lucrative contracts. However, lately Laneya has not often pleased fans with her appearances in public; she always has other, more important things to do.

Elven look

She was born in 2004, and her parents noticed from the first months of her daughter’s life how beautiful she was. True, at that moment they did not attach much importance to her appearance, sincerely believing that all little children were beautiful. Laneya was three years old when she was vacationing on Capitola Beach in California with her mom and dad. Then the girl's father, Thomas Stevenson, took several photographs of his daughter. Subsequently, they seemed so successful to him that he sent photographs of Laneya to the FORD modeling agency in San Francisco.

Soon the agent called the girl’s parents and offered to sign a contract before the girl began a short training. A month after signing the contract, Laneya had her first shoot. She delighted everyone present. The girl was not at all shy, she was open and natural, she happily posed in front of the camera and laughed infectiously when someone made her laugh.

The photographers, looking at the pictures, asked the parents what nationality the girl was, because before that they had never seen such expressive eyes. They immediately called the baby’s look elfin, both the color and the cut were so unusual. It turned out that Laneya’s family is international, with a lot of blood mixed in it: Filipino, Spanish and many others.

After the first successful shoot, the young model’s career began to develop rapidly. Over several years of cooperation with the FORD modeling agency, Laneya Grace has achieved impressive results. The girl's mother, Ariel Stevenson, devoted all her time to her daughter. At the same time, she did not force her daughter to do anything; on the contrary, all the filming and shows were just a game for the girl, fun and even exciting. Later, Laneya had to take a short break from her career; due to problems with her teeth, she had to get braces and stop participating in filming and shows for a while. And then the modeling agency completely abandoned working with children.

It turned out that she was physically unable to study at a regular school: the busy schedule of filming and shows did not allow her to spend precious time on lessons. Instead, in every free minute, Laneya studied according to an individual program with teachers at home, because the prospect of being left without an education did not appeal to her.
