Xenia Deli. That name alone would make you wonder what level of hotness she possesses. The name sounds so exotic and yeah, it may sometimes sound like she’s a food shop (or a high-ranking member of the X-Men) but no. Xenia Deli here is one of the hottest (if not the hottest) models to ever appear in a music video. Just look at her video at the end of this article. Though not a music video, you’d definitely see the reason why she was chosen to be the girl in this Justin Bieber hit…

Xenia Deli’s Early Life
She was born on October 27, 1989, in Basarabeasca, Tighina, Moldova. She graduated with a degree in foreign literature from Moldovan State University. Her plan was to become a teacher. She came to the United States as an exchange student and worked as a part-time waitress. The modeling bug bit her when she was twenty years of age. It must run in the family as her sister Vera is a model as well. She then attended modeling school. While attending the modeling program, she competed in a ‘Beach Bunny’ contest and she ended up being one of the three finalists. Brands then started doing modeling offers to her for their ad campaigns.
Xenia Deli started her international career with photographs shot by famed fashion photographer, Gavin O’Neill. O’Neill then went to an agency, showing his work (her photos) and Xenia was offered a contract right away. In 2011, Xenia Deli signed to Elite Model Management in Miami and in 2014, (Elite Model Management) in New York. A representative from Victoria’s Secret discovered Xenia Deli after they saw a poster with her picture at a store from across their office. They invited Deli and the rest is history…
Xenia married a then 63-year-old (36 years older than her) multi-millionaire Egyptian businessman Ossama Fathi Rabah Al-Sharif on the famous holiday island of Santorini in Greece. The couple met in the summer of 2015 and shared a very private romantic relationship until their wedding on June 4, 2016. The couple continued their happy honeymoon in Paris and London.
