In a recent interview, this 19-year-old said that when she was a young girl living in the Northern side of France she had a strong desire of becoming an established international model but had a few doubts about persuading this goal.
Growing up, Marine was a tomboy; she thinks that her two brothers contributed to this early trait. Ms. Deleeuw also mentioned that when her brothers were not around, she would impulsively grab her mother’s Vogue magazines and used to read every single page with great interest (that's when her love for fashion began). In her early teen years, Marine was determined to become a print and runway model but was a bit skeptical in her path. This French teen understood that in order for her to get booked at go-sees, her English needed to be perfected and her boyish appearance needed to be modified. Over a short period of time, this highly driven lady was able to squash her doubts by transforming herself into a more girly persona and improving her English with the daily use of educational textbooks.
At the tender age of 15, she obtained her big break and nothing has stopped her ever since. Marine has modeled for the most acclaimed fashion houses in the world, such as Chanel, John Galliano and Versace. This young lady became the first face of Viktor & Rolf and is currently being featured in Louis Vuitton, Moschino and Iceberg advertisement campaigns.
Even though many individuals in the business are trying to encourage this successful brunette to buy an apartment in New York City, she prefers to buy one in Paris, France; this model believes the life in the state of New York is too fast for her taste. Marine is well aware that models are often discriminated when they reach a certain age, so she's ignoring opinions of all sorts and is already thinking about her future. In a few years down the road, Ms. Deleeuw is planning on sticking to the fashion industry by trying her luck at designing the type of clothing she used to see in her mother's fashion magazines.
