We love European models. They’re gorgeous, sexy and sophisticated, and they have no problem showing enough skin to make some of their U.S. counterparts blush.

Those are just some of the reasons we chose German model Vanessa Breuer as our Babe of the Day.

The striking blue-eyed brunette has modeled for everyone from Victoria’s Secret to Chanel. Breuer, who now lives on Brooklyn, emits a casual elegance and a sporty fun side that we, as Americans, should be able to appreciate in her shots, which you can see below.
