Rodica Paléologue (Rodica von Buta) has an impressive life story behind. She comes from a refugee family from Bukovina, which was deported (when she was just 1 year old) in a small locality in the middle of the Baragan steppe plain in southeastern Romania. She already had the concerns of a political prisoner when she was a teenager, but she managed to study classic language at the university. Rodica asked to leave for France 30 years ago and she was admitted to Sorbonne. The famous fashion model knows nine languages, among which Latin, old Greek and Sanskrit.
She worked for the Museum of Louvre, she founded the book departments of Latin, old Greek and Byzantium for the new Library of France and then, she was the coordinator of the Romanian book collections at the National Library of France for 22 years.
Her passion for fashion has had an early debut in her childhood, when she used to make white dresses all by herself. In 2011, Rodica was seen by a young fashion artist in the lobby of an institution, and he proposed her an advertising campaign, impressed with her fascinating beauty. Since then, Rodica Paléologue has started a career in fashion, while inking several partnerships with famous fashion houses in France, Japan and Italy, such as Bulgari, Chanel and Louis Vuitton, for the latter she featured in a short next to late David Bowie.
