Though Palvin has been photographed for editorials and magazine covers since 2006, her debut on the runway was only in 2010, when she appeared as an exclusive at the Fall Prada showcase in Milan. Later that season, she walked for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Nina Ricci, Giles, and Pedro Lourenco at Paris Fashion Week.
Palvin has also collaborated with brands like Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, Christopher Kane, and more.
The first advertising campaign Barbara Palvin landed was in 2011, for which she featured on the Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria fragrance advertisement. In 2012, the young Russian was chosen to lead the Armani Exchange Spring ad campaign.
Palvin enjoys spending time with her family and closest friends whenever she can. She also likes listening to music.
