This gallery of gorgeous Malgosia Bela editorials depicts just why the Polish fashion model and occasional actress is one of the most prominent names in the fashion industry and has been for over a decade.

Some models experience immense success for a couple of years and then fade into obscurity, but not Ms. Bela. She rose to fame in the last 1990s when she appeared on the covers of several different editions of Vogue magazine, including the most prestigious ones, Vogue Italia and Vogue Paris.

Malgosia Bela starred in ad campaigns for Valentino, Jil Sander, Lanvin and Versace, and then in 2001, she suddenly quit the modeling world to pursue a career in acting. Bela returned to the industry in 2006, landing campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Chloé, Jil Sander, Donna Karan, and Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Check out this gallery of Malgosia Bela editorials to see why the Polish model is a legend in the fashion world.
