Cindy Bruna (born 27 September 1994) is a French fashion model.

Early life

Bruna was born in Saint-Raphaël, Var, France on 27 September 1994 to an Italian father, Stefano Bruna, and a Congolese mother, Eléonore, from Brazzaville, Congo. She has an older sister named Christy. At age 16, she was noticed by Dominique Savri, an agent and scout for Metropolitan Management, who suggested she go to Paris for a photo shoot. Bruna was hesitant, because she wanted to become a chartered accountant, and her mother didn't want her to miss school. Eventually, she accepted the offer and learned the basics of modelling. Since graduating from school, she now divides her time between Paris and New York City.
