She’s gained several honors and accolades as a part of her work, and as she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Modelling Beginnings
There is very little known about Dani’s life prior to her rise to fame online, as she hasn’t shared a lot of details about her past, with almost no information regarding her childhood, family, and education. She grew up in London, and during her teens was inspired to pursue a career in modelling, after reading an issue of “Bizarre Magazine”.
The alternative magazine ran from 1996 to 2015 and was a sister publication to “Fortean Times” published by Dennis Publishing. It was released bi-monthly but later became a monthly publication as it was an immediate success. During the peak of its popularity, its circulation was around 120,000, though it slowly declined over the years after its purchase by the company I Feel Good (IFG). After IFG collapsed, Dennis Publication acquired the company, and held it until its final issue in 2015. She became highly interested in alternative modelling, which doesn’t conform to the mainstream ideals of beauty, but often cater to a certain niche, such as fetishes, goth, or steampunk.
Rise to Fame
Divine developed herself towards becoming desirable for the alternative community, changing her hair color to red while wearing heavy make-up, getting piercings, and adapting a goth look. She also catered to a lot of the people into fetishes, by wearing outfits that appealed to them. Eventually, she managed to fulfill her dream of becoming featured in “Bizarre Magazine”, and was even rewarded with the annual Ultra Vixen of the Year award. She’s also appeared on the cover of the magazine “Girls & Corpses”.

The magazine describes itself as Maxim meets “Dawn of the Dead”, though the publication itself also stopped due to the decreasing interest in print publications after the rise of the internet. She’s also appeared in numerous events such as in the fetish club Torture Garden (TG), which is located in London. It is Europe’s largest fetish club featuring dance floors, musical acts, fashion shows, and an S&M dungeon. She’s been a part of the London Fetish weekend, and has also appeared in events promoting the boots manufacturer New Rock. The company was founded in 1978, and is based in Spain. It and has been running for three generations, and is known for their gothic designs, recently implementing the production of other types of clothing such as corsets and leather jackets.
Mainstream Breakthrough and Recent Endeavors
In 2018, Dani made her breakthrough on mainstream media when she became the winner of the “Maxim” UK Cover Girl Contest. The publication is an international men’s magazine which is best known for its photography of popular models, singers, and actresses during the peak of their popularity. According to the publication, they have over nine million readers each month, with over four million people actively visiting their website monthly. They have 16 editions published in 75 countries.
Aside from her magazine appearances, Dani’s fame has helped her gain a strong online following, and this in turn has attracted numerous companies to hire her for sponsored modelling work. She has posted photos for companies such as House of Harlot, which is a company which has been selling latex clothing since 1991. She’s also done modelling work for Bloodlust Clothing UK, which has an online shop through Etsy. The brand offers gothic and unique female clothing, though has recently implemented unisex t-shirts.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known in terms of Divine’s romantic relationships. She has not talked a lot about her life away from her work, and her type of work allows her to clearly have a separation between her professional and personal life. She has been spotted with a man in several photos, with indications that he might be her boyfriend. It is easy for her to easily change her look, make-up, and clothing to blend in with the crowd, and become easily unrecognizable. She has travelled all around the world to model and participate in events she’s been invited to. Despite that, most of her life outside of modelling is still a mystery.
