I am Barbara Snellenburg and I‘ll try and tell you a bit about myself.I was born and raised in a small town in the Netherlands, in a normal family, dad a teacher and mam a nurse and 2 brothers, Bas&Bob.
At the age of 15, eventhough i was pretty shy and had an adolenscence full of insecurities, I decided to participate in a modellingcompetion.Which to my surprise, I won, getting me a contract with a big Dutch modelling agency.
After finishing my school my modellingcareer took off and brought me to travel around the world and live and stay in cities like : New York, LA, Paris, London, Miami, Capetown, Sydney, Barcelona, just to name a few.And ofcourse Milan, which is still my homebase today.I worked for many international brands and magazines, such as : Cosmopolitan, Harpers Bazaar, Vogue Sposa, Gioia, Amica, Emporio Armani, Prada, Schwarzkopf, Wella, Maria Grazia Severi, La Perla, Lovable, Speed, Triumph, Nivea, Lubriderm, Mangano, Pignatelli, and many more.....
At the age of 18,during my modellingcareer, I take on the part of the maincharacter "princess Sofia of Lichtenhaus" in the movie "Pretty Princess" by CARLO VANZINA alongside RAOUL BOVA.
From that moment on, besides modelling, new interesting opportunities came my way in the world of showbizz, tv, theatre and commercials. To name a few of the most important things : SIMPATICI E ANTIPATICI by CHRISTIAN DE SICA, TUTTI GLI UOMINI DEL DEFICIENTE by PAOLO COSTELLA, THE UNDERGROUND COMEDY MOVIE by VINCE OFFER, LA VERITA VI PREGO SULL‘AMORE (theatre and movie) by FRANCESCO APOLLONI, PAZZA FAMIGLIA by ENRICO MONTESANO, 9 years the sitcom CASA VIANELLO, DON MATTEO "bellissima" by ENRICO OLDOINI, PILOTI 4, MAI DIRE MONDIALI, MAI DIRE MAIK, APEROL,BUITONI ,MOTTA, ARGO, ALGIDA, SINDYDOLL, SAUBER, TRANSAVIA and many appearances in tvshows.
For some time, caused by the loss of my mother, and maybe being a bit tired of showbizz, i preferred a period without spotlights.And together with my partner, i concentrated my strength in realizing fashion photoshoots, this time on the other side of the camera.
After a period of collaborations as a consultant and being the face of various fashion brands, i again was drawn to acting,this time in an award winning broadway theatreplay. BOEING BOEING, the comedy, written by Marc Camoletti and directed by MARK SCHNEIDER, brought me again, in a 2yr italian tour, in the spotlights and infront of an audience.
Recently the opportunity came my way to host and be head judge in a Dutch tvshow called "MODEL IN ONE DAY" .Experience that once again connects me to the fashionindustry.
I hope from this moment forward to be able to share with you my private and professional experiences, and eventhough i am not much of a writer, I wish through comments and images of BLONDIEFULL to make you a part of my life........
