The Brazilian model Valentina Boscardin died at the age of 18: suffering from Covid-19, her condition rapidly worsened in hospital.
The young woman, doubly vaccinated and as far as we learn without particular health problems, had been hospitalized in San Paolo. Several Portuguese and Spanish-speaking media speak of a clinical picture precipitated by pneumonia and then by thrombosis.
"It is with great pain that I say goodbye to the love of my life", wrote the mother, the TV presenter - and former model for Givenchy, Christian Dior, Valentino and Armani - Marcia Boscardin.
Valentina Boscardin was part of the Ford Model Brasil agency, which manages models from the South American country but also from America and France. Despite her very young age, she had already participated in fashion shows abroad.
On social media she often shared images on the catwalk and behind the scenes of the fashion shows: the last post dates back to December 20, when she published an image of herself smiling with the beach of Leblon behind her, in Rio de Janeiro.
