What is the BoF 500?

The BoF 500 is the definitive professional index of the people shaping the $2.4 trillion fashion industry, hand-selected by the editors of The Business of Fashion, based on hundreds of nominations received from current BoF 500 members, extensive data analysis and research.


Montero first walked the runway for Prada’s Autumn/Winter 2015 show, and has since appeared in shows for Alexander Wang , Prabal Gurung , Versace, Dior, Prada and Givenchy, among many others. She featured as a Prada exclusive in her first ever campaign, and quickly followed up her early success by booking the Spring/Summer 2016 Chanel campaign. She has since graced the covers of i-D, Dazed and Teen Vogue.

Born and raised in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic, Montero was raised by her mother and grandmother alongside two siblings. Though she never aspired to be a model, she did exhibit an interest in fashion from an early age, hoping to one day become a designer. First scouted in an amusement park at the age of 14, Montero waited four years before her mother permitted her to sign with an international agency.

Boarding her first plane soon after signing, Montero found herself in Milan making her runway debut for Prada during their Autumn/Winter 2015 show. In her youth she was fascinated by the likes of Oscar de la Renta and Dolce & Gabbana, both of whom Montero would later walk for.

As one of the highest ranked models on Models.com (she walked in 151 shows in 2015), Montero has walked in numerous shows since making her debut, for other high-profile brands such as Marni, Dior, J.W.Anderson, Tom Ford , Fendi, and Chanel amongst others. She has appeared in publications such as W Magazine, various Vogues editions around the world, and Elle France, while donning the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, Antidote, as well. Montero has become one of the most recognisable faces in a new generation of supermodels.
