Biography

A blonde, blue-eyed beauty with an improbable pout and a voluptuous figure likened to that of Swedish siren Anita Ekberg, Canadian import Estella Warren began modeling at age seventeen, after earning three national championships as a synchronized swimmer. A top model who has appeared on the pages of nearly every fashion magazine, Warren was discovered when a Polaroid of her taken at a high school fashion show generated interest with New York agents. Leaving behind the swimming and a possible spot in the Olympic games, Warren headed to NYC to pursue a modeling career. She soon landed career-making campaigns with Perry Ellis and Chanel, appearing in print wearing nothing but a man's white oxford shirt for the former and playing an unaffectedly seductive Red Riding Hood as the new face of Chanel No. 5. Though her image seemed to exist within the limiting range of wanton damsel to cheeky sexpot, Warren emerged in interviews as a well-spoken and genuine young woman with her eye on the future.

Bonus Trivia

.

Warren was a champion synchronized swimmer, taking three Canadian national champ titles in the mid-1990s. In 1995, she also took the solo bronze medal at the Junior World Championships.

.

"I always think of life as being a circle. Maybe I did swimming for ten years to prepare me for what I'm doing now and maybe what I'm doing now will prepare me for what I'm doing five years from now." --Warren to Ottawa Sun, February 1999.

.

Estella Warren on modeling: "It's a very naked industry, and coming from a barely clothed childhood as a swimmer makes me really comfortable with my body. But a nude photo has to be taken in good taste, not like, 'Hey, here's my breast!'" --quoted to Maxim, September 1999.

.

"Sometimes I feel self-indulgent. There's so much else that's so much more important to do on earth. And I feel that I'm an intelligent young woman with potential." --Warren quoted in GQ, May 2000.

.

On May 23, 2011, Estella Warren slammed her Toyota Prius into three parked cars just before midnight. The model was then arrested for DUI, but reportedly resisted, even kicking one officer. While being booked at the police station, Warren wiggled out of her handcuffs and attempted to escape, only to be recaptured. Warren was booked for felony escape, assault, hit and run and DUI.
