Born in Chicago and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, this 23-year-old is one of the biggest American models working today. In addition to fronting campaigns for L'Oréal, Kate Spade New York, and Chanel Coco Noir and covering, oh, just about every magazine under the sun, the six-foot-one stunner launched a scholarship program in 2015 called Kode with Karlie, giving girls the opportunity to learn computer-programming skills.
This blue-eyed beauty got her big break as a Guess girl in 2009, and has since become a go-to face for luxury brands and mass retailers alike, bouncing among H&M, Miu Miu, and Maybelline with ease (and raking in the big bucks while doing it).
The poster girl for crossover appeal, this Midwestern beauty has posed for Victoria's Secret, walked Paris couture, and emerged as a favorite of AmericanVogue.
Born in Oklahoma and raised in Missouri, Lindvall is a Midwesterner through and through. At age 14, she was discovered by an IMG talent scout at a Kansas City fashion show, but clearly, her appeal extended well beyond the Great Plains—more than two decades later, she has one of the most impressive résumés in the biz, with campaigns for Miu Miu, Versace, Jimmy Choo, covers ofElleandVogue, and even a handful of film credits under her belt.
This Irving, Texas, native is no wallflower—in fact, she's almost as well known for her artfully undone personal style as she is for her work with brands such as Cartier, Maybelline, and H&M. After more than 15 years in the industry, she's now turned her hand to styling and design, with her own fine jewelry line (aptly called Wasson Fine) and a capsule collection for PacSun.
The epitome of late-'90s fashion, Arkansas native Hall moved to New York as a teen to pursue modeling. By the age of 17, she was listed inForbesas one of the "best ten" moneymaking supermodels alongside certified supers Cindy CrawfordandChristy Turlington—thanks in large part to steady campaign work with the likes of Ralph Lauren, Gucci, and Guess.
A classic all-American beauty with a blue-chip résumé to match, Murphy has been a favorite of clients such as Tiffany & Co., Estée Lauder, and Oscar de la Renta since the mid-’90s, lending her aristocratic good looks to glossy ads and billboards around the world.
This SoCal surfer girl not only looks good in her bikini, she designs them too! After years of modeling for theSports IllustratedSwimsuit Issue and going scantily clad in campaigns for brands such as H&M and Guess, the San Diego–born babe launched Tori Praver Swimwear in 2009.
She may have the cheekbones of an icy Eastern European, but rest assured: Mount is a Utah girl born and raised. At 29, she's been modeling for well over a decade, pausing for just a short breather in 2007, when she gave birth to her son, Liam.
This Brooklyn beauty landed a coveted spot in not one but three Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues, but her real crowning achievement may be touring with Prince (she is a classically trained dancer after all).
Mom toDixie Pearl, pal toTaylor(Swift, that is), and wife to Kings of Leon frontmanCaleb Followill, this California-born Nashville transplant has parlayed her modeling success into full-fledged celebrity.
Much lauded for her frank account of starving herself to fit the measurements of a "straight-size" model (her memoirHungry came out in 2010), Renn proved herself a force to be reckoned with in the plus-size modeling industry and beyond.
Back in her supermodel heyday, Seymour bared all forPlayboy’s March 1991 issue. Now in her 40s, the mom of four still makes time for the occasional comeback, posing for brands such as Estée Lauder and Jason Wu.
A card-carrying member ofTaylor Swift's "Bad Blood" squad and a Victoria's Secret Angel to boot, this North Carolina native has shown no signs of slowing down since walking her first Fashion Week back in 2007.
With her dimpled cheeks, bee-stung lips, and gap-toothed smile, this Wichita native is the quintessential girl next door—if the girl next door had a pile of Chanel campaigns behind her, that is.
The It-girl of the late '90s and early aughts started modeling at age 13, rising to the upper echelons of the industry despite clocking in at just five-foot-five.
