Throughout her successful modeling career, Cynthia Bailey has graced magazine covers, spearheaded beauty campaigns, and has shut down plenty of runways. Still, The Real Housewives of Atlanta mom never forgets where it all started.
In honor of #TBT, Cynthia shared a throwback photo from her first-ever modeling shoot in New York City, and it's clear Cynthia has always been a natural in front of the camera. "Straight out of bama to nyc," her post began. "This pic was from my first ever modeling shoot in nyc with photographer @noelsutherland on his rooftop. i was 19. scared, clueless, and determined to win all at the same time."
The ATL fashionista also revealed that the day after the shoot, Wilhelmina Models signed her to a 5-year contract and "the rest is history." Also, we'd just like to point out that this picture further proves our theory that the RHOA stunner has found the foundation of youth.
Nerves and all, Cynthia nailed this photo shoot, and went on to being one of the fiercest models hailing from Alabama.
You are a true inspiration, Cynthia.
