Omaha, Nebraska native Samantha Gradoville made her runway debut opening and closing the Fall 2010 Prada collection in Milan. The following week, she walked exclusively for Miu Miu in Paris and was then one of the most talked about "fresh faces" of the season.
Samantha quickly became a catwalk superstar, with appearances for Chanel, Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Gucci, Pucci, Fendi, Versace, Burberry, Dries Van Noten, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford.
Samantha has been featured in global campaigns for Calvin Klein fragrance and lingerie, photographed by Steven Meisel and Mario Sorrenti, as well as advertising for Lancome, Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Max Mara, Alberta Ferretti, Roberto Cavalli, La Perla, and Topshop. She has been on covers of Numero, Harper's Bazaar, L'Officiel and Transmission, as well as inside the pages of Vogue Italia, Vogue Mexico, W, Antidote, Harper's Bazaar, i-D, AnOther, and Pop to name a few. Samantha has additionally shot with additional photographers such as Craig McDean, Giampaolo Sgura, Victor Demarchelier, Liz Collins, Sebastian Kim, Mark Abrahams, Alasdair McLellan, and Camilla Akrans.
Samantha is an accomplished jeweler and herbalist as well. Samvara Jewelry infuses her love and intention into every handcrafted piece. These one of a kind creations are destined to be heirlooms to last forever. Samantha states: I am so grateful to be able to express myself through jewelry and share my art with others. I believe that we are all spiritually connected, and this is my way of manifesting that connection.
