When it comes to careers with the best looking women, modelling needs to be at the very top of the list. And we assure you, the 15 people below are definitely well deserving of their numerous modelling contracts.
On top of being some of the most influential models of all time, these 15 women have all been open about their love of the female body. Whether it’s currently engaging in relationships (sometimes with each other), or talking about past experiences, we’ve got it all covered below. That includes one woman that was a secret booty call for Madonna and also had a relationship with Angelina Jolie.
Speaking of Jolie, did you know the first ever supermodel, Gia Carangi, was a lesbian? Or how about the fact she was addicted to heroin? Her life gets covered in the incredibly steamy movie Gia that starred Jolie and EIizabeth Mitchell.
Cara Delevingne and Ruby Rose may have both transitioned to film and television, but they’ve also got extensive modelling careers that will also be talked about below.
Have a friend on social media that may find it interesting to see all these models and where they fall on the sexual spectrum, or may be inspired by these women? Feel free to share the list on social media.
15. Miranda Kerr
When you land the job of being a Victoria’s Secret Angel, you’re definitely doing some pretty great things as a model. Especially when you learn that Miranda Kerr was the first ever Australian angel! Kerr has also used her body to get attention, posing naked and chained to a tree for Rolling Stone Australia in order to raise awareness for endangered Koalas.
Kerr is one of the most successful models of all time, with a net worth of $18 million. She has also taken her good looks to the music world, appearing in the video “Number One” for Kanye and Pharrell.
Kerr has had some prominent relationships with males, including a marriage to Orlando Bloom. It was that split that prompted her to tell interviews “I appreciate both men and women, I want to explore. Never say never.”
14. Amber Rose
Amber Rose first came to prominence in 2008 when she appeared in a music video for Ludacris. She then went on to pose for several different companies, walking the runway for the brand Celestino at New York Fashion Week. Rose also has experience working as a spokesperson, signing on with Smirnoff back in 2011.
Rose may also be known for her extensive personal relationship history that includes 2 years dating Yeezy and a marriage to Wiz Khalifa.
Despite those high-profile relationships with males, Amber Rose is not shy when talking about her sexuality. When asked in 2009, Rose said
“They label me a bisexual freak stripper that f—s Kanye on a daily basis. To answer that: I’m extremely open with my sexuality. I can be in love with a woman, I can be in love with a man. I’m not into bestiality, but as far as humans go, I definitely find beauty in everybody, whether they’re heavy-set, super-skinny, if they’re white, black, Indian, Asian, Spanish.
I can see beauty in anybody. I’m not into threesomes or orgies and s–t like that. If I see a women and I think she’s beautiful and I like her, and she likes me back we can definitely try to be in a relationship together.”
13. Ireland Baldwin
When your dad is Alec Baldwin, there is definitely going to be some pressure to make a career of yourself. For Ireland Baldwin, the fact that she’s 6’2 and gorgeous means modelling was definitely the right career path for her. She is only 20 years old, but Baldwin has been modelling since 2013 and was labeled as the “It Girl” by both Vanity Fair and W Magazine. While it is not clear what she is doing next as a model, she did sign with DT Model Management in June 2015.
Ireland is currently single, but she was previously in a relationship with rapper Angel Haze. When talking about her relationship, Haze said it was humorous how the media constantly tried to portray them as just being friends. She definitely put that to rest, saying “An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now. We f**k and friends don’t f**k. I have never f**ked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen. But we do f**k and it’s crazy and that’s weird to say because I think about it in terms of an audience reading it and them thinking, ‘What the hell?’ But it happens.”
12. Eve Salvail
Eve Salvail may not have the long traditional hair of a model, but holy smokes can she ever pull off the bald look! Her decision to shave her head and get the Chinese dragon tattoo got her spotted by Jean Paul Gaultier and helped launch an international modelling career.
Salvail came out as a lesbian when speaking with Tyra Banks on January 9th, 2007. When talking about her orientation, Salvail said “I was always with my girlfriend at the time backstage, but I’m very private about my personal life. She was my make-up artist, my manager, my hairdresser, my everything else.”
11. Yaya Kosikova
Yaya Kosikova became the center of a bit of controversy back in 2015. Sure, you may not care about foreign TV shows, but a famous TV host and model Montserrat Oliver allegedly ended her relationship with her partner to start dating Kosikova. I mean, Kosikova is gorgeous, but that’s hardly how you want your relationship to start!
The two sat down with Vanity Fair earlier this year where they gushed about their relationship with one another, including the fact that they live together.
10. Amanda Moore
Amanda Moore became a model when she was accompanying a friend to a scouting event and was spotted by a local talent agent. Prior to this, she had hopes of becoming a veterinarian, but we are sure she isn’t complaining about how her life turned out. Moore has worked with companies all over the world, including Vogue Italia and Vogue Paris. As well as this, Moore has worked for H&M, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, and several other well-known brands.
In 2003, Moore had a prominent relationship with Kate Young, who was a former writer for Vogue, but their relationship sadly fell apart. While Moore has not done much modelling in the last few years, she’s still clearly one of the sexiest lesbian models of all time.
9. Cara Delevingne
You may recognize Cara Delevingne for her role in Suicide Squad of Paper Towns, but make no mistake, prior to hitting the big screen Delevingne was hitting up the runway. In 2012 and 2014 she was awarded Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards and has modeled some of the most expensive brands in the world; including Burberry, which Delevigne modeled for in 2011. It was her first big break in the industry and she was spotted for the line after being recognized at her office job.
Delevingne is openly bisexual and is currently in a relationship with the musician, St. Vincent. Delevingne has been open about her past battles with depression, but also open about her love of Vincent, saying “I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days. And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
That happiness may be why the rumors were quickly shot down earlier in September that Delevingne was hooking up with Suicide Squad co-star, Margot Robbie.
8. Freja Beha Erichson
When you get the nickname the “Queen of Cool,” you definitely know you’ve accomplished some pretty cool things in your career! Erichson was noticed by a modeling agent as she was walking down the street one day and debuted as a model in 2005. She has since worked for Dior, Prada, Chanel, Versace and many other notable brands. Models.com once ranked has literally the 2nd best model in the entire world – talk about some high praise!
While her career is slowing down, it is clear that Erichson has had a memorable career. While there is not too much to be said about her personal relationships, Erichson is an open lesbian and has even had a relationship with Catherine McNeil, who is a fellow model who may just appear below! (…Okay, she does.)
7. Arizona Muse
Arizona Muse has the unique distinction of having her career not really take off as a model until after she gave birth to her son. But since then, she’s appeared in Vogue as well as the fashion brand Uno. Muse was in a relationship with stylist Manuel Quintana, but their relationship sadly did not last. While she does not have much information available, it was revealed back in 2011 that she was in a relationship with Freja Beha Erichson. You can only hope that if she’s taking a step back from the fashion world, it means she’s getting to spend more time with her son!
6. Tasha Tilberg
Now, considering this writer is from Vancouver, how do I not include Tasha Tilberg who is also from British Columbia? Tilberg has appeared for various magazines, and has spent time as a spokesmodel for CoverGirl.
Tilberg has happily been in a relationship with Laura Wilson, who she married a few years ago. The two have twins together (a boy and a girl), who Laura gave birth to back in 2012. Tilberg has always been open about her standards as a model, that has included no lingerie photoshoots and no assignments where she needs to play a straight person.
5. Kim Stolz
While Kim Stolz did not win when she appeared in America’s Next Top Model, it definitely didn’t hurt her career! Stolz is represented by Ford Models and Elite Model Management and has worked for notable companies such as GQ, American Eagle, Nordstrom, and Teen Vogue. Stolz had an absolutely gorgeous wedding back in 2013 when she got married to her girlfriend Lexi Ritsch, but sadly they have since divorced.
4. Ruby Rose
One of the best parts of the latest season of OITNB has to be the inclusion of Ruby Rose in the cast. Outside of prison, Rose has herself an impressive modeling career including being the face of Maybelline New York in Australia.
Rose has also co-hosted Australia’s Next Top Model. Rose’s unique fashion sense has led to the Australian fashion label Milk & Honey working alongside her, creating their own line designed by Rose. Rose even has her own specialized sneaker out there for purchase.
Rose came out as a lesbian at the age of 12, but sadly suffered abuse and torment as a result. When talking about her sexuality, Rose described herself as genderfluid and that she wakes up every day in a sort of gender neutral place. When asked what sex she identified with more, she also admitted that if she could choose, she would have been a boy.
3. Jenny Shimizu
Jenny Shimizu made her first break working for Calvin Klein and Banana Republic, but she made history when she worked for Prada. Shimizu was the first Asian model to work for the brand, and was also the first minority model to ever open up the show.
As impressive as her modelling career may be, what may be even more impressive is that she said she was Madonna’s booty call. When talking about it, Shimizu said, “I was her secret ‘booty call’ available any time of the day or night for secret sex sessions.”
If that wasn’t enough to make you jealous, how about the fact that she also admitted to having quite a few romantic liaisons with Angelina Jolie. Shimizu had a deep bond with Jolie and in an interview, said that she fell in love with Jolie the first time she saw her. Jolie also admitted deep feelings, including saying she would have married Shimizu if she was not already married to Jonny Lee Miller.
2. Catherine McNeil
Above you read about Ruby Rose’s relationship with Catherine McNeil, so you must not be shocked to see that this gorgeous brunette is also deserving of a spot on our list. McNeil came to prominence after winning a modeling contest that was put on by Girlfriend, Vogue Paris at the age of 14. Vogue Paris later declared she was one of the top 30 models in the 2000s. If you can think of a prominent brand, McNeil has probably modeled for them.
After McNeil’s relationship with Ruby Rose came to an end, she started to date male model Miles Langford and were engaged; but later called it off. Shortly after that, McNeil became involved with photographer Emily Hope, but they broke up in 2015 after being together for a year.
1. Gia Carangi
Gia Carangi is considered by many people to be the first ever supermodel. As well as appearing on various magazine covers, Carangi also worked for several prominent companies such as Armani, Versace and Christian Dior.
Carangi clearly looked gorgeous in her prime, but her career took a horrific turn when she became addicted to heroin. Carangi, unfortunately, passed way at the age of 26 from AIDS-related complications. Carangi’s orientation fluctuated from bisexuality and being a lesbian, but either way, it was clear she was an inspiration for many individuals.
Her life was turned into the movie Gia, that stars Angelina Jolie. The movie also features quite a few intimate love scenes with Linda, Carangi’s makeup artist who was played by Elizabeth Mitchell.
