Cutting an arresting figure with beauty and brains in equal measure Laura Shields is of British and Sri Lankan heritage. Signed up to premier UK model agency Elite at the age of 14, Laura went on to represent the United Kingdom and came within the top 10 of the Miss International beauty pageant in 2004 and was placed third in the Miss Europe pageant in 2005. Armed with a degree in Chemical Engineering, Laura is also a member of MENSA with an IQ score of 158 placing her within the top 1% of brains in Britain.
Her modelling career has taken her across the world and she has starred in various advertising campaigns ranging from GAP to Fahrenheit. She also worked as a hostess on the hit US game show Deal or No Deal alongside Meghan Markle and starred in Justin Timberlake’s raunchy music video ‘Tunnel Vision’. She has appeared on the cover of many magazines and in addition to once being touted as a possible Bond Girl, was voted as one of the 100 Sexiest Women of the world. Proud of her Sri Lankan lineage derived from her mom Hema, Laura’s winning combination of brains and beauty makes her stand out from the crowd.
