Britt Maren is a Sweden-born, Texas-bred model based in New York. She has worked for esteemed brands such as Vogue, Glamour, Victoria's Secret, Nike, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Garnier, Free People, Target, Sephora and more.

Britt is married to chef Derek Orrell, and the two reside in Brooklyn with their puggle, Zeus.
Britt started modeling in her hometown of Houston, Texas, doing mostly local jobs while attending high school. She began traveling to New York and Milan on her summer vacations, and later moved to New York full time. Britt's career really began to thrive during the S/S 2011 show season in NYC, when she got the opportunity to work closely with Alexander Wang and Karl Templer in the week leading up to Alex's show. Britt was thrilled to open the Alexander Wang show, and went on to walk for several other notable designers, including an exclusive for Balenciaga, in which she debuted a platinum pixie-cut hairstyle.
Since then, Britt has worked consistently with the top editorial and commercial clients in the industry. While maintaining her status as a successful, working model, she also has a true passion for food. She loves to bake and has an avid sweet tooth, while her husband Derek Orrell is a professionally trained chef who has worked at renowned restaurants around New York. They both love cooking seasonal, market-inspired meals at home, but also enjoy experiencing the culture and cuisine at acclaimed restaurants around the world. Derek is currently partner and executive chef at Beck and Call Catering, and is in the process of opening his own restaurant, with the help of his wife Britt.
