I’ve always had the hots for classy blondes and the Danish model Terese Pagh Teglgaard is one of my favorites. Her international carreer was on its way when she became winner of Danish Elite Model Look competition 2006, by the age of 14, and placed second in the international finale of the same year. Former contestants are Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bündchen and Lara Stone to name a few. Terese has walked the runway for Cacharel, Collette Dinnigan, and for Danish designers Stine Goya, Munthe Plus Simonsen and Ivan Grundahl. See her backstage (she isn’t too sharp…but that’s typical blondes, right?) at the Collete Dinnigan Show here.
