Marie Sophie Wilson-Carr
DNA has Marie Sophie Wilson-Carr on their main board. But somehow this 80's/90's [super?]model has little info about her, in the public domain. For example how old she is? Where she was Born? Etc... So after an hour of digging I came across the below V Spain short article, on her, from the Winter 2010.11 issue (#7).
As far as her age, the article states she was 21 when she started modeling. And the earliest image I found for her was from 1984, her City Paris agency's card. So assuming this was her first representation, that puts her at around 50 years of age; with plus or minus 1-2 years. We don't know if it took 1 or 2 years to get to City.
As far as her nationality, we know she's French, but not where she's born. Only thing we know from the article again is that she studied in Lille, northern France, and where a photographer approached her to tell her she should model...
The rest is in the article. Excuse the translation, some places it says "he" when it should be "she".

Marie Sophie Wilson-Carr has that so typically French ailure CES: transmitting tranquility and purity can be seen even when he jumps on his home answering machine. The muse was Peter Lindbergh has recently paraded Galliano, one of the most important fashion shows from all leading to his back, and that it was almost ten years since I stepped on a walkway. Crushingly beauty natural, began working to fine-les of 80 for publications including The New York Magazine. Soon after was proclaimed as one of the most im-portant models of the moment. Claudia Schiffer, Noonii Campbell, a very young Kate Moss and the rest of the cast of supermodels of the time accompanied her through the pages of magazines and best-known bridges. The truth is that talking to her you realize the importance of time, and even that sometimes are subject to their whims. But Marie-Sophie has managed comprise each stage, there is no doubt that knowing look to the past is to know to understand what is to come. Gone are time points that capture perfectly the nineties, a period in which strengthened ties with fashion moving from "university girl antisistenia sitaria air" as she calls herself, to international model. These were years now, removing nostalgia issue, we search all trying to fan the flame of that won-lloso memory. Concepts such as 'top mociel' filled our mouths, were exponent taking us beyond the canon of beauty, making us dream about the limits of physics. Intimate Lindbergh, came to work for him not only in front of his camera, but also during the filming of the video-Blich Unster of the German band Die Toten Hosen, a small canneo that would eventually give the odd role on the big screen . According to the model, Peter Lindbergh contacted her and told the project at hand. Norton pregnant with her son did not hesitate, for more than a problem it was a compliment to shoot this video in which fitted perfectly with his masculine figure. The relationship over the years of greatest work rate once had with Peter-as-she calls him, was quite unusual. Somehow, the renowned photographer opened his eyes and made him realize who he was and even who could become: "It was a very important person for me, now is an old friend," he says.
During the last decade of the century, which saw the fruits ripen so many years devoted to fashion, Marie-Sophie felt her life was filled with a constant coming and going between aircraft and marathon work sessions, all without ever dreamed be a model. His professional history began with 21, while studying in Lille, northern France. One day he was approached by a photographer and made it clear that I should try modeling. "I was a punk-rocker, not leafing through magazines and had not the slightest idea of fashion," he explains. He soon moved to Paris to become the rising star of French rock, but carried away by the words of that anonymous photographer, and after a call from a modeling agency, was living in Mi-lan, with little money but with your pet, a tiny hamster. It was at this time that he met Mario Testino, with whom he had the pleasure of working during the only season of haute couture who starred for the signature Christian Lacroix in 1990. The funny thing is that the model admits contrary to the high seam, having never believed in it. No shortage of arguments to defend their position. When asked about his opinion about the game of Lacroix fashion, safe answer: "He had a lot of economic support others did not. Are the people who worked hard which continues today to be the envy of the great houses, Véronique Leroy as that for me is the perfect example. " But when he speaks of his words Testino move from seriousness to tenderness. It is the memory of what was and what has become the photographer that rouses your feelings. In the past, "Mario was sweet and enthusiastic, his tenacity and perseverance in the work has taken him to be what it is today," explains Marie-Shophie. It is clear that the passage of time brings changes, and more in the world fashion: the prototype parade yesterday touched the dream and fantasy, today everything is serious and forceful. Anyone would realize this by seeing the latest runway. For Wilson-Carr parades "are not what they were." As a veteran , and without sounding speech mother, tell me before you rush "is a lot more fun since you walked on the catwalk." We assume that this is because the models embodied ver-daderos roles and bodies were not only ephemeral. In This, he says, "the feeling and fun have been in the background and, to top it all go well, the style" horse step ". Luckily there are still some designers like John Ga-lliano that make each model unique feel to exit after exit
kamikazes high catapulting toward the goals. "The relationship that links the model with the designer Gibraltar was born during a time when both were young and inex-experts, but with all eyes on them. Everything is so intertwined between these two figures of fashion: it is clear when Marie-Sophie, now married, says that John Galliano had a major role on your wedding day, because not only did her wedding gown, but the tail of the suit led to the mismísi-mo altar where her husband was waiting. "It was the perfect blend of drama and characterizes John," he recalls. Good friends always remain, perhaps the only thing that does not perish with the passing hours and days. may endure Like some models of the nineties. companions-ras and co-workers who return to star in the present and shows you campaigns for a public eager for glorious past. Unsterblich, the video clip above, means "immortality", and something it must have in all this, no doubt. In early October, Marie-Sophie returned to the pa-sarelas with designer Veronique Leroy-reference for her, and John Galliano. iY with the same body that had 20 years! As he says, "was like riding a bike, something you never forget." In 1997, Marie-Sophie becomes Pirelli girl to represent the skin of France, and nothing less than the hand of Richard Avedon. In the words of the model, working with Avedon, the father of contemporary fashion photography, "was one of my greatest achievements and honors, especially since I had chosen to represent my country." Speaking of his country the model reveals their discontent and political concern, without delving into the matter, doubt if he would again represent the country she was born. In short, we see a model that has been able to mature over time. I lived intensely the frenzy 90, but in the present rather be removed from the hustle-noise amid the French countryside, completely isolated from a system of life that no longer stands. now prefers to play the drums with her son while her daughter plays bass with his father, or go to his garden to pick vegetables for food preparation. "I recently had a phone to keep in touch with my agency before the shows in Paris, now the phone should walk around the house lost. I do not like the system in which we are supposed to live, I guess I'm still a punk, "he concludes. Pau Avia
