Bad High School Days
It seems hard to imagine, before she made it big, she had a tough time in high school. She told Vogue about her woes: “I hated high school. I was really tall and skinny. I have a weird personality when you get to know me, I was really shy because I was so tall and I had bad posture and was like ‘Hey guys!'”
In 2013, she was featured on Intimissimi’s catalog. She has been in print campaigns for Forever 21. In 2014 she modeled for H&M and walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. That year she became one of the faces of Rosa Cha with Erin Heatherton, Frida Gustavsson and Barbara Palvin.
Turning Victoria’s Angle
She was voted “2015’s most promising model” by Couturesque’s readers. In 2015, she hosted an event for Victoria’s Secret PINK. That same year, she became a Victoria’s Secret Angel at just 19 years old. She also advertised Versus. In August 2015, she won “Model of the Year” in social media at Fashion Media Awards.
In 2016, she played a model in the film The Neon Demon And made her debut at No. 17 on Forbes’ “The World’s Top-Earning Models” list, with estimated earnings of $4 million between 2015 and 2016. In July 2016, she was named as the new face of Lancôme.
Who she wants’ to be like
She aspires to have a career like Gisele Bündchen, a former Victoria’s Secret model. As she told Fashion Rogue, “I especially look up to Gisele Bündchen because she’s an extremely smart business woman who has managed to keep herself relevant in an industry that’s all about the next best thing. It doesn’t get much better than Gisele and I admire her for building such an impressive brand.”
