Frankie Rayder is best known for her Victoria’s Secret campaigns. However, she’s added many more strings to her bow over the years. She has adorned magazines, window showcased, and the long catwalk for more than three decades. She also won the prestigious “model of the year” award, which was sponsored by Vogue.
What we love most about Rayder is that not only does she slip smoothly into brands that are top of the range and high-end fashion names, but she also represents eye leveled stores such as GAP and Godiva Chocolates ( which used to be prestige but can be found today in every high street store).
When she was only twenty years old, Gemma Ward made twenty-five thousand dollars per runway show. By then, she had also fronted a Calvin Klein campaign and was a muse for designer Miuccia Prada. Ward was on her way to becoming the next Kate Moss.
But the unfortunate passing of her boyfriend, Heath Ledger, made her take some time off. After a break that ran for five years, she signed with IMG Models and returned to the runways. Her resume now also includes a bit of acting in movies such as “The Great Gatsby” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”
Tatjana Patitz was a talented model from Germany who blew up in the nineties, working with brands like Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Cartier, Versace, and Calvin Klein. Over the years, she worked beside supermodels Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, and others in George Michael's “Freedom '90" music video.
While she could have any designer clothes imaginable, she was a fan of simple jeans and riding boots. For the most part, Patitz walked away from the spotlight, choosing to live with her son Johan and their many animals on a Santa Barbara ranch in California. She sadly passed away in early 2023 after battling cancer.
Among all the Victoria's Secret Angels, Agyness Deyn stood out. Beautiful, yes; enchanting, yes, but she had something a little more. Her distinct tomboy look and short hair helped her stand out in a crowded marketplace, and the punk aesthetic that she was able to cultivate was a joy to watch on the runways.
Deyn worked for Alexander Wang, Chanel, Bottega Veneta, and lots more. She was the official face of Burberry, Doc Martens, and other products you may be familiar with. Retiring from modeling in 2012, she moved on to acting. The movies that Agyness has appeared in include “Clash of the Titans,” “The Titan,” and “Her Smell.”
Beverly Peele began working as a model at the surprising age of just twelve. Her first magazine cover, “Mademoiselle,” came in 1989. From there, she moved on to “Vogue,” “ELLE,” and “Cosmopolitan,” and walked for Prada, Comme des Garcon, and John Galliano.
Despite her atmospheric success, Beverly took a step back in 1993 to raise her daughter Cairo. Since then, she has had three more children, her sons Trey and DJ and daughter Storm. In 2017, Beverly and Storm appeared on the Lifetime docu-series “Growing Up Supermodel,” a show that follows the careers of the children of famous models such as Peele.
