Miranda Kerr decided to enter a modeling contest for Dolly Magazine when she was only 13 years old. To her surprise, she won and was flown all the way to Sydney for her first shoot! Today, Kerr is one of the highest paid models in the world, and has modeled numerous times for Victoria’s Secret.

Cindy Crawford was simply planting corn on a farm in Illinois when a local newspaper photographer snapped her picture, and the rest is history! The reaction to the picture was so overwhelmingly positive that she decided to try modeling professionally, and has made a long and prosperous career in both film and modeling.



Naomi Campbell was originally a dancer as well, and even appeared in Bob Marley’s music video for “Is This Love.” She was able to adapt her love of the camera into a successful modeling career before returning to the screen in a recurring role on the hit show Empire.



Sometimes, becoming a model is as simple as going out to eat. Gisele Bundchen was discovered by a scout while she was eating a Big Mac in a Sao Paulo McDonalds. And who says models have to starve themselves!
