Biography » theater opera and movie personalities » sybil buck


Sibyl was born at 27th of may 1972 in Versailles, France.Her father was a teacher at the American school in Paris at the time, but he lost his job for being to cool (radical) for the French schooling system. So they moved to Virginia when Sibyl was just 6 weeks old. When Sibyl left college in 1992, were she studied art, she moved to Paris to start modeling. She thought she could go to school there or at least take some classes there, but she got too much work to think about anything else.


From then on it went up with Sibyl Buck and she started working for the big designers. She became famous for her piercings and her red hair. She got that idea from a comic book called “X-Men". The trick to get it red, was to bleach it just to yellow and then puts pillarbox red manic panic on it.


In spite of her red hair and her piercings, she is even a favorite of conservative designer Yves St Laurent.


Modeling, she says, affords her the opportunity to continuously change her looks: “Like, this is cool…. I look in a mirror, you know, like ten times during the day and see ten different images.”


The following is a list of people she worked for.
