Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
Carmella grew up in Southern California and was raised alongside a younger sister. Her first name was taken from her great-grandmother, while her second name Rose was taken from her grandmother. Her family settled in Newport Beach, California where she would attend the nearby Rim of the World High School – at a young age, both she and her sister aspired to become models.
The school is located in Lake Arrowhead, and is situated at the top of a mountain which overlooks the San Bernardino Valley. Following the completion of her high school education, she quickly pursued work as a professional model, and got her first contract with One Management. Her signing with the agency led her to move to Los Angeles, where there would be more opportunities for her to take advantage of.
After working a few years with One Management, she then signed with one of the most recognized modeling agencies in the world, Wilhelmina.
The model and talent agency has an office in LA, though their headquarters are located in New York City. The name of the company is taken after their founder Wilhelmina Cooper, who was a Dutch-American model before she ventured into creating an agency.
Following her signing with Wilhelmina, she gained various high profile projects, being featured in publications including “Sports Illustrated” which has been in print since 1953. It is the first magazine to win the National Magazine Award for General Excellence two times and also has its well-known annual swimsuit issue which often features both up-and-coming as well as established models.
She also gained a feature in the men’s focused “Maxim” magazine, which has been in publication since the 1990s. The magazine rose to fame through its photography of popular models, singers, and actresses, and has international editions published in 75 countries.
She often worked with brands as a commercial and print model. She frequently worked with GUESS which is a clothing brand retailer offering apparel for both men and women. The company also sells accessories, shoes, and perfumes.
Another company she worked with is the cosmetics brand Urban Decay, which is a subsidiary of the French brand L’Oreal. She modeled promoting lip colors, eye colors, as well as other facial products.
One of the reasons Carmella quickly gained fame online is due to her confidence in showcasing her body – she’s not afraid to do semi-nude or nude photoshoots. She also talked about her sexuality and sex life openly, which in turn led to a lot more attention from both men and women.
As her modeling projects increased, her fame on the website Instagram expanded as well, which is one of the more popular social media platforms for established and aspiring models. The platform has a lot of traffic which is attractive to advertisers, brands, and other companies wanting to take advantage of models with a lot of followers.
In recent years, Rose has focused more on her online presence, and started doing photo shoots while traveling around the world. She’s often seen on beaches and in tropical destinations, and other vacation hotspots.
