10 Former Victoria’s Secret Models: Where Are They Now?
The women of Victoria’s Secret have awed us with their beauty and have become a staple part of popular culture. Many of them have moved onto careers outside of the modeling industry and have earned some big-time cash! This takes a look at some of the greats who graced the runways as Angels and just what they’ve been up to since striking a pose at center stage!
10. Tyra Banks
Tyra Banks is fierce! At the age of 14 she was swept into model land by Elite Model Management. She was the first ever African-American to land the cover of Sports Illustrated and it wasn’t long before various brands picked up the curvaceous sensation. She began working with Cover Girl and Victoria’s Secret, and she even began acting in shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Her stint with VS lasted from 1997 to 2005 when her self produced series America’s Next Top Model was really taking off. Banks also had her own talk show The Tyra Banks Show for five years. Tyra has gone so far as to publish a novel called “Modelland,” start her own brand of cosmetics, and launch her own fashion and beauty website. She’s must have earned a pretty penny with so many ventures!
9. Karolina Kurkova
Karolina Kurkova became a Victoria’s Secret model in 2005 after gracing the cover of Vogue. The 5’11 Czechoslovakian born bombshell has walked the runways of some of the most prestigious brands like Alexander McQueen, Versace and Louis Vuitton. She left the VS brand in 2008 after being panned by fashion critics when a health condition led to weight gain. Kurkova transitioned to the big screen and starred alongside Frankie Muniz in My Sexiest Year, and in the 2009 flick G. I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. She is married to Archie Drury and is the proud mother of two boys!
