Eugenia Silva was born on January 13, 1976, in a true world epicenter of female beauty: Madrid, Spain. Though she's a capital girl by birth, she grew up in the nearby, but much smaller Toledo.
She was raised in a political family. Her uncle, Antonio Hernndez-Mancha, was an important jurist who ran for the Spanish presidency. Such intellectual surroundings would later compel her to enroll in law school.
No doubt she knew she was gorgeous early on. At only 15, she entered the Elite model agency's Look of the Year contest and won. Immediately her celestial face was splashed on major magazine covers, including the Spanish editions of Bazaar, Telva and Vogue.
