Before she became pretty much the hottest woman alive and Mrs. Tom Brady, Gisele was just a 13-year-old-girl living in Brazil. But how did she make it big? Ms. Bundchen was actually discovered in a Sao Paulo McDonalds! Keep this in mind next time you're minding your business and just chowing down on a McRib getting sauce all over your face thinking nobody's watching. Well, they are. You could be the next Victoria's Secret Angel for crying out loud.
Christy Turlington isn't just a pretty face and that chick in the bathtub in one of the greatest music videos of all time. She's actually smart! She studied comparative religion and Eastern philosophy at NYU.
Linda Evangelista, the original "chameleon" of modeling, has at least one thing in common with Steve Urkel. She plays the accordion! Man, could the woman get any more sexy?
We guess the accordion thing is totally trendy. Grace Jones also plays the portable wind instrument.
Naomi Campbell isn't immune to that whole model-loves-rocker cliché. She was once engaged to U2's Bassist Adam Clayton.
Tyra Banks does it all. She's a talk show host, a model mentor, and she once portrayed a doll that comes to life in the terrific TV movie "Life-Size" (go rent that, by the way). Tyra was the first African American model to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, GQ, and the Victoria's Secret catalog. Kudos to you, Ms. Banks.
Milla Jovovich, aka Leeloo from the 5th Element, did some good old-fashioned sitcom acting back in the day. She appeared on "Married with Children" at the age of 13.
Kate Moss is such an underdog! She's one of the shortest supermodels out there, standing at only 5'6 and a half. You should feel bad for her because that is absolutely disgusting and completely unacceptable.
Twiggy is the only other model who had a similar height to Ms. Moss, standing at a little under 5'6.
Remember Marcus Schenkenberg? He was always dropping trou back in the crazy '90s. Well, he was a caretaker for an old man's 7 dogs in Beverly Hills before he hit the big time by exposing his Swedish washboard abs to the world.
Shalom Harlow was discovered at a Cure concert in Toronto. Is she the coolest girl ever? Her name means peace and she just goes to Canadian Cure concerts and everyone's all, "You're so beautiful, Shalom. Let's make you a star. Oh, and you can host the most awesome show ever made, MTV's House of Style." So not fair.
Cindy Crawford was the first real Supermodel to ever pose for Playboy magazine. If you didn't know that and if you're into that sort of thing (beautiful naked people) then you're welcome.
