Suki Waterhouse

Model & Actor

The British model and Burberry fragrance star is prized for her mod style and dishevelled hair, and has branched into acting.

Biography

London-born Suki Waterhouse’s modelling career began when she was discovered in a pub aged 16. For her first campaign she modelled lingerie for Marks and Spencer, followed by work for Alice + Olivia and Coast.

In 2013, while working out in a Kensington gym, she found herself on a rubber mat next to Elliott Smedley, a creative consultant at Burberry, who immediately knew he wanted her to front the brand’s campaign. Waterhouse became the face of the Burberry Brit Rhythm fragrance and has since struck gold, appearing on numerous magazine covers such as Vogue China, Vogue Korea, Elle UK, Tatler US, InStyle US and Love magazine.

She currently lives in Chiswick, West London with her parents and three younger siblings. Her younger sister Imogen Waterhouse is also a model, and currently studies drama at Oxford Brookes University.
