Princess Rani Vanouska T. Modely, also known as Vanessa Modely, is a model, philanthropist, entrepreneur and public figure engaged in the social, human rights and education sector.
She is the President of the Football World Heritage Organization, and the official ambassador delegate to lead the candidacy of Football as a world intangible heritage to be registered on UNESCO's list, and that aims to federate the 185 member states engaged in this nomination of Football on UNESCO’s World Heritage. She aspire to bring together Royal families, Heads of State, UNESCO member states, world institutions, great icons of sport as well as the UNESCO and the UN in an international dialogue.
Modely is a descendant of a Indo-european noble family, heiress of the direct lineage of King Hammira-Deva Chauhan of Ranthambhore. Her great grandfather, considered a deity, was a famous philosopher of the highest Indian caste. Born in an aristocratic family, she grew up in a global diplomatic environment surrounded by economical and political personnalities such as Vincent Bolloré, Xavier Niel, the Arnault family, Jean-Claude Decaux, Jean-Paul Agon, Prince Albert of Monaco and others. Having always felt an attachment to the political sphere, she followed her path in the High Studies of National Defense Institute (I.H.E.D.N) in Paris, where she specialised in Economical Intelligence.
At the age of 14, she was spotted by the famous photographer Patrick Demarchelier and started her modelling career. She joined the Elite model agency and started working for multiple fashion brands.
In 2014, she decided to step aside from her modeling career under the advice of Vincent Bolloré in order to be able to fully dedicate herself to humanitarian causes. With the support of the President Jacques Chirac, she became Ambassador of the Gusi Peace Prize in 2014.
UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador
At the beginning of 2015, she was named Goodwill Ambassador by Daniel Janicot, the President of the French National Commission of UNESCO. A year later, she became the Vice President of UNESCO Circle in France, which was born out of the partnership between the French National Commission for UNESCO and the Modely Organization. These two organizations pursue distinct but complementary objectives such as supporting educational projects, enhancing France's image abroad while encouraging creativity in science and culture.
Football World Heritage
Rani Vanouska T.Modely is the actual President of the Football World Heritage Organization and the official ambassador delegate that leads the candidacy of Football as a world intangible heritage to be registered on UNESCO's list.
Football World Heritage is a project that she initiated in January 2016 with the support of Havas group and Jacques Séguéla, as well as different member states and ambassadors of UNESCO. Since then, Vanouska has been regarded as the bridge between FIFA and the agency of the United Nations.
The idea of planning the football candidacy as a world heritage became an evidence after she assisted the football match in the stadium Louis II in Monaco during the Champion’s league ceremony in 2015. By meeting some of the most iconic football players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, she quickly realized that football has the potential to be a powerful tool used for the greater good through the worldwide promotion of human rights, and that the nascent project’s values are perfectly in line with those of UNESCO.
The project was officially launched during the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. Since then, she has travelled all over the world on the field meeting children from every nation. Through this candidacy, she hopes to raise awareness and funds for the UNDP, (United Nations Development Program), which advocates for change and the spread of knowledge and resources especially in the least developed countries. Furthermore, she aims to encourage Heads of States, world institutions and football icons to adopt policies to support and fund social, educational and charitable initiatives.
She has the support of the FIFA, the FFF, the UEFA, the African Union, the International Organization for Francophonie, the Mayor of Paris and a lot of other economic, political and cultural personalities. In December 2019, Rani Vanouska made the pages of Forbes magazine alongside Arsene Wenger and unveiled the "The top 100 Football World Leaders”. Today, she carries the torch of these universal values by continuing to engage in educational and cultural actions to highlight and preserve this noble sport for the future generations.
On 27 April 2020, Rani Vanouska T. Modely established a partnership between Football World Heritage and Peace and Sport, under the patronage of HSH the Prince Albert of Monaco. A few months later, she decided to donate a pair of earrings "les Emeraudes de Venus" in favour of Football as World Heritage, auctioned by Christie’s.
On 21 December 2020, Modely established and became President of the Football World Heritage Organisation registered under the laws of England and Wales in the United Kingdom.
In 2021, she intended to the FIFA World Club Championship 2021 in Doha, and met with the Supreme Committee regarding the FIFA World Cup 2022. During an interview on Al Kass TV streamed a few days later, she announces Qatar’s prolific striker Ali Almoez as an ambassador for his country Qatar to join the global movement in the run up for the World cup 2022, as he signed officially the pledge for the support of the candidacy.
