Meet Adele Uddo, a New York City-based model whose client list includes names such as Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Apple, Burger King and many more.
Apart from world-famous brands, Uddo has worked with celebrities such as Heidi Klum, Penelope Cruz, Katy Perry ...
Her work has been published in renowned magazines and it is estimated that she makes up to $5,000 a day for print work. Yet, you've probably never seen her face ...
How is that even possible?
It's possible because Adele Uddo is not your usual fashion model. She's a parts model and to those not familiar with what that is, we suggest to keep on reading to find out.
As weird as it might sound, Uddo is not famous for being a model as a whole. Instead, she's well known for her body parts: hands, lips, feet and legs.
Still not getting it? Maybe this example of Uddo's hand gently curled up on Hugh Jackman's cheek will help you.
Uddo says her journey to the fashion world didn't begin as romantically as one could imagine. On the contrary, it was pretty random and unreasonable:
"Some weird old lady named Ruby Flowers, who lives in Arizona and channels angels told me during a phone-in psychic session to get rid of my desk with all its 'negative energy,' start eating more meat, and become a model," Uddo writes on her website.
Sounds like crazy talk, right? But after growing up with her mother on, what Uddo calls, a "manic organic commune" in Northern California — where days were spent running around naked, harvesting veggies and crafting Christmas ornaments from pinecones — Adele was ready to try anything that would let her lead a standard "straight" life.
