Caitriona Balfe

I’d like to start a new series celebrating gorgeous women. Actresses and other artists who captivate, awe, and inspire. Flawless humans we wish we could be like.

The first lady crush is no other than Outlander‘s leading lady, Caitriona Balfe. She used to be a model, and walked for numerous notable brands, including Victoria’s Secret, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Armani, and many others.

In 2009 she returned to acting, which is what she initially wanted to do before being scouted by a modelling agency. Now we know her mostly as Claire Fraser in the fantasy-fueled romantic period drama, Outlander. While Claire is an Englishwoman, Caitriona is in fact Irish, and  she speaks fluent Irish Gaelic.
