Vildane Zeneli


Zeneli, the Kosova native, quickly shoots to international stardom as a preeminent model and recording star. 

Robin Thicke’s music video for the song All Tied Up, and in the music video for the song Pass at Me by Timberland with Pitbull and David Guetta. Zeneli has also appeared in five Super Bowl commercials and in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in 2011 and 2012. For the past six years, Zeneli has been signed with one of the biggest modeling agencies, Ford Modeling Agency, and also with Major Models in Europe. In 2013, she was the only model for Million Dollar Beats by Dre—diamond-studded head-phones. Zeneli’s unique look attracted the attention of top names and photographers in the fashion industry, including Peter Beard, Raphael Mazzucco, Russell James, Brian Bowen Smith, and David LaChapelle. Zeneli is currently working on her music career with Interscope Records, where she is recording with some of the best artists in the industry. Vildane Zeneli was born in Prishtina, Kosova, but her family was forced to move to America during the Kosova War in 1999. Starting a new life with a new language and culture, while being unable to speak or explain to people what she was going through and how traumatized she was from the war, was very difficult, she says. Despite the difficulties, Zeneli was blessed to have survived the war. It gave her the strength to do anything and everything, like achieving success and doing what makes her happy. It taught her to take risks and to experience and live life to the fullest. At 13 years old, a representative of Abrams Artist modeling agency approached Zeneli while she was at the beach. Modeling was something she definitely wanted to do. She thought it would be fun, creative, and entertaining, as well as be an enjoyable environment to work in. Over the following years, modeling became a fulltime job and actual career for Zeneli, especially when she got signed to Wilhelmina Models agency.
