11-year-old Milla Jovovich was being photographed by celebrity shutterbug Richard Avedon as one of Revlon's "Most Unforgettable Women in the World," and earning $3,500 for a day's work.

She is the only child of Russian film star Galina Loginova and Yugoslav pediatrician Borgi Jovovich, Milla spent her early childhood years being carted back and forth between the Soviet Union and London, where her father completed his medical studies. Having commanded both the catwalk and the silver screen during her carrer, Milla has also set out to conquer the pop music realm. Back in 1994 she release of her first album, The Divine Comedy. The 18-year-old had become one of the few, a model-actress-singer-songwriter.
It was her appearance in The Fifth Elementby French director Luc Besson's that finally found the perfect role: sporting bright orange dreads with lemon roots and an absolutely fabulous Ace bandage costume created by designer Jean Paul Gaultier. She captured the the vision of her audience with this futuristic heroine. While filming The fifth Element, Director Luc Besson saw her as the most talented person he had ever known and the the two hit it off and had a three year marraige. She sums up her artistic ambitions as follows: "I just want to make one really good movie a year. And when I die, to know I was honest as an artist." Failing that, there are always those lucrative fashion shoots and that high-profile cosmetics deal with L'Oreal to fall back on.
