Magdalena Frackowiak looks 'exactly' like her father

Magdalena Frackowiak believes she looks "exactly" like her father.

The 31-year-old Polish model - who made her breakthrough at the age of 16 after winning a competition with a modelling agency in Warsaw, which her mother put her up for - has admitted she is the spitting image of her parent because of the colour of her skin, the shape of her hands and teeth.

Speaking to Net-A-Porter's The Edit about her appearance, the blonde beauty said: "I look exactly like my father, it's crazy. The same skin tone, the same kind of fingers, the same kind of teeth, everything. It's incredible."

And Magdalena - who has fronted campaigns for luxury fashion houses Dior, Givenchy and Prada - has revealed she was "glad" she pursued the modelling route, which she has been at the helm of for 15 years, although she did not expect to have such a successful career as a catwalk icon.

She explained: "Modelling came into my life very unexpectedly.

"I took my route, I took what life gave me and I'm really glad that I did.

However, she had a change of heart last year, which saw her launch her eponymous line of jewellery and accessories, which she co-founded with her friend in Warsaw.

Speaking about her latest career venture, she said: "But once I turned 30, I wanted to go back to my dreams; to do something that I had always wanted to do."

Although Magdalena has revealed she has had her ups and downs throughout her career, she is proud of her achievements.

She said: "It hasn't always been easy, but when I look back at my memories, there are so many of them that I'm grateful for. I opened Alexander McQueen's last show and when I went to the exhibition of his work in London there were two outfits that I had worn. It was an amazing feeling. You don't realize when you do these things; it's only years later that you look back and think, wow, I am part of the history of fashion."
