Model Vittoria Ceretti has made waves online this week for allegedly “shading” Lily-Rose Depp on social media, with some now curious to know more about her. 

On Thursday (November 17), Ceretti shared a post to her Instagram stories as she was seen venting to her followers after she claimed to have read a recent interview with a “nepo baby.” In the post, the model reflected on her own career before discussing how it can take years to earn respect in the industry compared to those with already established connections.

However, it’s not confirmed who or what Vittoria was referring to.

Ceretti launched her career off the back of a modeling competition   

The star kicked off her modeling career in her early teens.

At just 14 years old, Ceretti competed in world-renowned model agency Elite’s well-known competition, Elite Model Look.

Ceretti previously explained in a Vogue Diary Of A Model video that she and her cousin sent in applications to the competition as a “joke.” However, to the model’s surprise, she received an email back from Elite saying they would like to meet with her.

She ended up being a finalist, with the model having noted in an interview with the competition how she learned a lot from her experience, from working on shoots to walking in heels on runways.

A decade on she’s made her mark on the fashion world

Ten years since her start in the industry, the model has worked alongside some of the biggest brands and names in the business.

Chanel, Versace, and Prada are just a few of the brands that Ceretti has faced campaigns for throughout her career.

She has also been featured on the covers of many of Vogue’s international editions, as well as other well-known fashion publications, including AnOther, i-D, and GARAGE.

Over the years, Ceretti has walked the runways for notable fashion houses and brands, including Valentino, Miu Miu, and Givenchy, with the model, said to have already done a hundred catwalks at just 19.

Elsewhere Ceretti is currently a brand ambassador for both Chanel Beauty and Bulgari.
