You never know what life will bring. These supermodels were so blessed to be discovered in the craziest possible ways. If you dream of becoming a star, never give up. Maybe tomorrow you’ll meet a scout out of nowhere and become one of the most popular faces in the world. That’s what happened to Natalia Vodianova, Gisele and many more. Let these stories inspire you, and convince you that anything is possible. Check out how your favorite models were discovered and how their careers took such a crazy turn.
Life for Gisele wasn’t as glamorous as we all know it to be today. The good thing is that the gorgeous Brazilian gazelle was discovered when she was only 13. And it happened in the most interesting and unexpected place you can imagine. Bundchen was having her first-ever experience at McDonald’s, eating a Big Mac. That is when a modeling scout noticed her and helped her start a world-renowned career. At the moment Gisele was in Sao Paolo, where she was participating in a modeling class. She later became the most popular model in the world, especially in the late 90s and early 2000s. Bundchen was the highest-paid model for over 10 years. Her first huge show was the Alexander McQueen from 1998. Just a few days ago, the supermodel released her first book called “Lessons: My Path To A Meaningful Life”.
According to ABS, “Cindy Crawford got her start when a passing newspaper photographer took a picture of her as she pollinated corn on a farm in Illinois. The picture received so much positive feedback that Crawford then entered John Casablanca’s ‘Look of the Year Contest’ in 1982, which launched her career.” When she was very young, Cindy didn’t know the benefits of being popular. She lived on a farm in Illinois. After the newspaper was published, everyone seemed to love the picture. That is how Crawford got the idea to send her pictures for the contest, the best decision she ever made. She booked a number of local modeling jobs, but never forgot about her dream. Crawford’s main goal was to save more money to pay her college tuition. Eventually, the supermodel dropped out but got a world-famous career instead.
You won’t even believe if I tell you that many supermodels were discovered in tiny towns that most of us don’t even know they exist. That happened to the gorgeous Natalia, who used to live in a town in Russia called Gorky. Vodianova’s mother was a single parent because her father left when the supermodel was only two years old. Better known as Supernova, Vodianova was noticed by a photographer at their fruit stand in the hometown. He took several pictures of the gorgeous girl and that’s how it all started. Supernova comes from a very poor background, so she really appreciates everything she has today. That’s why she founded the Naked Heart Foundation. It is meant to support children all over Russia in many different ways. She also has two sisters, one of which was diagnosed with autism.
“I live a very different life now, with incredible privileges, but looking back I realize that growing up in Russia gave me tools that other people don’t necessarily have — such as the will to push that bit further, to make things happen, to succeed. I try to use these now to help other people.”- Natalia explains.
