Xenia Deli

Xenia Deli, stunning, amazing and unforgettable, especially after the ‘What do you mean?’ video clip remember?

Xenia Deli was born in Basarabeasca, Moldova. She is ethnically Gagauz, a Turkic minority in Moldova. She began studying literature and planned on becoming a teacher, but graduated from the first course of the Moldova State University. She also attended modeling school, and that was something she definitely doesn’t regret.

Deli started her career with photographs taken by Gavin O’Neill, a fashion photographer, who showed his work to an agency. She got a contract as a model. Deli signed to Elite Model Management in Miami in 2011 and New York City in 2014. Deli picked up a modeling contract with Victoria’s Secret after its representatives saw a poster with her picture from another campaign at a store across from their offices. They invited her for an interview and the parties reached a contract.

New campaign for @mimoneda ???

She has also been featured in magazines, including FHM, GQ, Sports Illustrated, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Maxim. In 2012 Deli appeared nude in Lovecat Magazine.

Deli has starred in music videos, including “Wake Me Up” of Ionel Istrati and “Thinking About You” of Calvin Harris. In 2015 Deli co-starred in Justin Bieber’s video “What Do You Mean?,” gaining widespread press attention because of the singer’s popularity, after the video was released on August 28, 2015, and NO they have never been a couple ;).
