FTV.TV WORLD – Monika “Jac” Jagaciak is number 9 in FashionTV’s FIRST FACE countdown special, the top ten models for the Fall 2011/2012 season! Monika Jagaciak is known as Jac in the modeling world. She’s a Polish model born in 1994, who was persuaded by her sister to attend an open casting call in her home country. Her big break came at age 13 when she signed a Hermes ad campaign. She had never heard of Hermes prior to winning. She’s been through controversy due to her young age. In 2010, she appeared in Valentino, Chanel beauty, and Marc Jacobs ad campaigns. Watch as she gets her makeup done with a big red lip at Missoni and dramatic smoky eyes at Roberto Cavalli. She was featured in Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2011 show alongside supermodel greats like Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. Marc Jacobs designed the collection.

14-year-old Polish model Monika Jagaciak was banned from the catwalk at Australian Fashion Week amid continuing controversy over the sexualisation of young girls in the fashion industry.
A photo-shoot of Monika Jagaciak by Australian Vogue was also called off after the editor said she had not realised the Polish teenager’s age.
Organisers of Australian Fashion Week in Sydney banned all under-16s from the catwalk after furious public debate over the use of youngsters in an industry already under fire over anorexia and drug use.
It follows a similar decision ahead of London Fashion Week last September and brings the Australian event into line with shows in other leading cities. [Daily Mail]
