Monika “Jac” Jagaciak started her modeling career early; at just 22, she’s been in the industry for nearly a decade. Though as a young teenager much was made of her age, the Polish model has been overwhelmingly successful in her career: her first big campaign was for Hermes with Peter Lindbergh as the photographer; she’s been a face of Chanel Beauty since 2010, and a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2015. She describes herself as a “woman, daughter, and good partner,” and aspires only to be “the best version” of herself.
