Daughter of Spanish TV journalists Carlos Herrera and Mariló Montero, Rocío Crusset had many chances to start a career in show business. Finally, it was fashion that crossed her path, in the music festival Rock in Rio when she was 19 and an agent encouraged her to become a model. Later, once she had returned from Switzerland, where she studied, she contacted him back to try her luck in fashion.
 
To start her new career, Rocío decided to go with her grandmother’s name, so as to separate from her parents legacy and because of its more international sound. She made her debut in February 2015 at Madrid Fashion Week thanks to the designer Angel Schlesser and, a few months later, she made her first appearance on the 080 Barcelona Fashion runway in the summer 2015 edition, where she has remained one of its most popular faces until its 20th edition held last June. The Catalan catwalk has also been the setting where she has been with his current boyfriend, model Juan Betancourt, with whom she shares huge success on social media, which she considers key for her modelling career.
 
Now, at 23, Rocío Crusset can say she has been the image of such different brands as Springfield, Brownie and Brunello Cucinelli. She has also strutted the runway for Italian brands Tezenis, Calzedonia and even for Philipp Plein within Milan Fashion Week. As for editorials, her classical beauty face has been seen in all major Spanish fashion magazines like “Vogue”, “Harper’s Bazaar”, “Smoda”, “Glamour” and “Telva”, while she lives between Madrid and New York, where the wellknown agency IMG Models is in charge of her career. The same agency that works with Spanish top model Marina Pérez and supermodel Gisele Bundchen, the main reference for Rocío Crusset in fashion. While these two represent the established models, Rocío Crusset embodies the new generation, with many and exciting challenges ahead.
