Lu Siera, at the age of 19, took her career to Europe to model and join model agencies in Paris, Italy, Germany and Japan. Lu is presently a part of Elite Model Management in New York. Pierre Balmain was the first French designer to hire Sierra. Other designers such as Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent and Patrick Kelly began to request Sierra. Soon after, she began to work for Krizia, Fendi, Karl Lagerfield, Giorgia Armani and became known as the "Bob Mackie Model." Soon Bill Blass, Escada, Randolph Duke and Oscar de laRenta used her on the runway. In 2008, Donald Trump hired Lu Sierra to choreograph the runway portion of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants. In 2012 she trained the winners of Miss Teen USA, Miss USA, and Miss Universe and became the only runway coach to have done so. Lu has trained ladies in Lebanon, the Cayman Islands, Costa Rica and China.
