There are a lot of young, up and coming, gorgeous models on the rise at the moment, which means that there is a lot of competition for modelling gigs these days, which is never a bad thing. One of these models, who has seen her career going from strength to strength over the pas couple of years, is the beautiful 22-year-old model Cris Urena.
Cris Urena was born in the Dominican Republic, before moving to the US at a very young age, growing up in Massachusetts, before then moving to New York in April 2011, as she wanted to boost her modelling career. The decision has proved to be a good one, as Cris Urena has worked with some of the biggest and best names in the modelling industry in recent years.
As well as working with the likes of Ralph Lauren, Cris Urena has also worked with Victoria's Secret, which is big for any models career, while she also made her debut in the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue last month as one of their 12 Rookies. This has put Cris Urena in line for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2014 Rookie of the Year distinction, which would be a huge boost for her career.
With that said, just appearing in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is a big boost for her and it seems unlikely that she will land Rookie of the Year, going up against the likes of Lily Aldridge, Emily Ratajkowsi, Valerie Van Der Graaf, Sara Sampaio, Chanel Iman, Hannah Ferguson, Bregje Heinen, Lauren Mellor, Samantha Hoopes, Marloes Horst and Gigi Hadid.
