Real name: Małgorzata Bela
Małgosia Bela (born Małgorzata Bela on June 6, 1977 in Kraków, Poland) is a Polish fashion model and actress.
Bela quickly became a successful runway and editorial model in the late nineties, appearing on the covers of many international editions of Vogue, including Vogue Italia and Vogue Paris. Lanvin, Valentino, Jil Sander, and Versace enlisted her in their advertising campaigns.
