Top model Eva Padberg: The face of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin

German top model Eva Padberg has been representing Mercedes-Benz as a brand ambassador at international fashion and lifestyle events since May 2007. In this capacity, she will be the face of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. “Eva Padberg’s style is young and fresh just like Berlin’s. This is in perfect harmony with the Mercedes-Benz brand and underlines our international involvement with fashion,” explains Dr. Olaf Göttgens, Vice-President Brand Communications Mercedes-Benz Cars.

Born on January 27, 1980 in Bad Frankenhausen, Eva Padberg grew up in the little village of Rottleben next to the Kyffhäuser Mountains in the German state of Thuringia. In 1995, she entered the “Bravo Girl & Boy” contest, becoming one of the top three finalists and receiving her first model agency contract. While continuing her studies, Padberg was introduced to the modelling business in Munich, Hamburg and Paris. After her school leaving examination in 1998, she began to model professionally and found herself on the catwalks of Milan by that autumn.
While pursuing her modelling career, Padberg has also worked as a TV presenter, actress and dubbing artist for several years, and serves as an ambassador for UNICEF. In collaboration with her husband, music producer Niklas Worgt, Padberg has begun a new song-writing and singing career. Under the name Dapayk&Padberg, they have already released two studio albums featuring electronic club music, and perform in the international nightclub scene.
