Clara Alonso Biography | Clara Alonso Model
Clara Alonso is a Spanish model. She was the only Spanish model to walk in the 2008 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show since 1999. She has been the face of GUESS and AX Armani Exchange as well as the face of Agua Fresca de Rosas fragrance by Adolfo Domínguez.
The model completed her studies before becoming a regular in the Spanish runways. Coincidentally, after her studies she met John Pfeiffer (who was a recording producer, design engineer and occassional music composer). In June 2008, in Florence, Italy, Diane von Furstenberg hired Alonso for her “Cruise 2008-09” collection and months later was called to New York for the Spring-Summer 2009 fashion shows. While in New York, she also had the opportunity to work for Custo Barcelona (a fashion designer).
At the age of 21, Alonso had become Spain’s new top model, chosen to be in the Victoria’s Secret 2008 fashion show held in Miami. Only two Spaniards, Esther Cañadas in 1997, and Eugenia Silva in 1998 and 1999, had previously participated in the Victoria Secret fashion show.
She has walked for Bottega Veneta, Luisa Beccaria, Brian Reyes, Nanette Lepore, Oscar de la Renta, Tory Burch, Cynthia Steffe, Luca Luca, Diane von Furstenberg, Lela Rose, Prabal Gurung, Abaeté, and Resort 2009 Diane von Furstenberg. Alonso won L´Oreal award best model for Cibeles f/w 2010. She is the face for Agua Fresca de Rosas fragrance by Adolfo Domínguez and appears in its TV spot.
She also did the lingerie campaign for GUESS shot by Yu Tsai in L.A and also stars in AX Armani Exchange Spring 2011 advertising campaign with compatriot Alejandra Alonso. In 2015, she appeared for Pantene Water Damage campaign.Clara Alonso Photo

Clara Alonso Interview
Former VS Angel Clara Alonso Opens Up About the Realities of Being a Model
Updated: September 26, 2017
Clara Alonso has a lot to celebrate. The former Victoria’s Secret model gets to travel the world for work, married her beau Robert Serafin last month, and was just made the new face of European lingerie brand Yamamay. But life as an in-demand model isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be.
The Spanish beauty opened up to Hispanic newspaper El Pais about her insecurities, the pressures of social media and how the modeling industry is evolving.
Although she now fronts a new lingerie brand, and has often walked Victoria’s Secret runways scantily clad, she wasn’t always comfortable revealing so much skin. “At the beginning of my career it was hard… There are so many people around you… and it embarrasses you to have people see you [like that],” she said. “But nowadays I’m used to it and I feel just as comfortable in lingerie as I do wearing clothes.”
“At some moment I did feel judged and rejected,” she said referring to the early years of her career. “But if you ask any model,” she added, “they’ll tell you that they felt something similar.”
Alsono also spoke with the Spanish paper about her struggle to adapt to the news demands of social media. With over 167k followers on Instagram, her feed needs a lot of time and attention. “Many clients no longer ask to see your book or call your agency to ask about previous jobs, they go directly to your Instagram and see where you travel to and who you work with,” she said. “Many times I’ll be traveling and working, and I don’t have time to update it. It’s an added pressure, it’s a second job.”
On a positive note, she said she recognizes that the fashion industry is much more progressive than it used to be. During this season’s New York Fashion Week, for example, there were a record number plus-size models working the runways, and greater diversity is visible across ad campaigns and magazines spreads. Zara recently launched the ‘Timeless’ campaign featuring women over 40; Transgender model Teddy Quinlivan was the sixth most-booked model this season; and Ashley Graham made history as the first plus-size model to grace the cover of Vogue this past March.
“I think it’s extremely important for everyone to feel included and for everybody to feel like they can identify with what’s out there in the market,” Alonso said.
