Irina Lazareanu loves Canadian catwalks
Irina Lazareanu loved walking in a Canadian fashion show as she felt so “at home”.
The model was born in Romania, but was raised in Canada from the age of five. Last year, she was invited to take part in a Joe Fresh runway event in her adopted country, and it had a lasting effect on her.
“That was my first time working with them, and it was really amazing. It was my first Canadian show, my mom was there, and I felt so at home,” she revealed.
Irina has walked for labels such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Sonia Rykiel and Rick Owens, but is best known for her escapades off the runway. She is pals with supermodel Kate Moss and has a keen interest in music, working with Sean Lennon in the past. She has also teamed up with rocker Pete Doherty, who she is rumoured to be dating.
The star has no problem discussing her private life, as she understands her fans are interested in what she gets up to away from the cameras.
“I love that. I’m very open - I mean, what else is there to know that people don’t already know?” she told Fashion magazine.
“I met [Pete] at a party, a high-school party. It wasn’t anything fancy. But I’ve never dated Sean Lennon. We’ve worked together for many years. He’s like my brother. I love Sean more than water, but it wasn’t that kind of relationship.”
