Born in Australia, Bianca Chiminello spent most of her early childhood training to be a classical dancer. At the age of 15, she was “discovered” by a modeling agency and, within the year, won the prestigious Ford Supermodel of the World Competition. She was flown to America, placed as a finalist internationally and was taken to New York City with the Ford agency to pursue a new-found career. Whilst modeling throughout Europe, she worked with many of the world’s top designers; Armani, Moschino, Escada, & Husein Callahan. She also appeared in many of the top magazines such as: British Vogue, Harpers Bazarre, Allure, Elle, Marie Claire, to name but a few. She was quickly becoming an international face that was easily recognizable. In her native homeland, Bianca signed the Australian Levis campaign, appeared in all of the country’s top publications and opened for a barrage of Australian designers during Mercedes Australian Fashion week. During this time, she enrolled in a college of dramatic art, taking three years away from the fashion industry to train as an actor. She performed on the stage in productions of “Electra”, “The Three Sisters”, “Dangerous Liasons”, “Twelfth Night”, “Under Milk Wood” and “Snow Angel”. Due to her exposure as an international model, Bianca appeared in programs, “E! News” (Australian Edition) as well as “Looking Good” whilst still continuing her studies.
In 2000, Bianca entered the acting industry professionally; within the year, she appeared as a semi-regular in the critically acclaimed science fiction series, Farscape (1999). She went on to work with the TV productions, The Lost World (1999) and BeastMaster (1999). Due to the international release of these television productions, Bianca was called into the overseas market; as of today, she is based in Los Angeles and continues to work as a professional actress. Her popularity in these American productions, has called Bianca to numerous fan-based events throughout the country. Her exposure and popularity has the world of fashion calling for her return. Jeremy Scott, international designer, was the first to draw her back into the spotlight of fashion, as she appeared in his summer collection of 2003.
