Michelle Behennah biography (bio):
Michelle's parents are divorced (her biological father is a former Hong Kong school principal), but her mother Rosemary remarried and, along with her stepfather, presently run a B&B in France. The youngest of 3 siblings, Michelle relocated with her family to Sheffield, England, where she was raised.
Originally, she wished to attend to medical school in order to become a plastic surgeon, but her mother saw in her daughter the potential of a modelling career. At the age of 14, Michelle set out for London, where her mother entered her in a contest sponsored by a shampoo company.
Michelle won the contest and next entered the 1993 Ford Agency "Supermodel of the World" competition. At this event she was a finalist, along with now fellow model Magdalena Wrobel.
After her win, Michelle moved to Paris, where she spent seven years establishing her name in the modeling industry. While there, she appeared in magazines such as ELLE US, Glamour Italy, Vogue Italy and Spain, Mademoiselle, and Cosmopolitan.
She has also modelled for designers such as Cynthia Rowley, Valentino, BCBG, Donna Karan, Emanuel Ungaro, Nina Ricci, Ralph Lauren, Salvatore Ferragamo, Chanel, and Thierry Mugler.
In 1999, Michelle made the move to yet another world fashion centre, New York, where her career flourished. Besides the fact that she has appeared in high-profile advertisements for Burberry, Esprit, Givenchy, Vanderbilt Jeans, Hewlett Packard, J. Crew, Kenzo, L'Oréal "Elnett" hairspray, Mango, Nina Ricci, Saks Fifth Avenue, Swatch watches, and Tommy Hilfiger, she has also posed for Victoria's Secret.
Michelle has also modeled swimsuits for Sports Illustrated's now infamous Swimsuit Edition, in 1999, 2000 and 2001. It is perhaps these appearances that have acquired Michelle most fame.
Has worked in television for MTV programmes Model Search and Fashionably Loud.
