Ines Crnokrak Skerlic was born in 1984 in Belgrade in what is now the Republic of Serbia. At sixteen years of age, she traveled to Paris to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion model. Getting off to a promising start in Paris, she walked in hundreds of shows and shot for layouts in magazines such as Vogue, L'Officiel, and Vanity Fair. Following this success, she worked in the Milan fashion market with designers that included Giorgio Armani, Roberto Cavalli, and Marchesa. She also worked on projects in Tokyo. At twenty-one, she moved her career to New York, where she enjoyed further success, working with such names as Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, and Ralph Lauren. Today, she still resides in New York and has started a family. While she continues to do some modeling, being a great mom is her first priority.
