Life as a super model is as glamorous as it gets. The world is your oyster and doors to opportunities you never knew existed are opened up. High-profile models like Heidi Klum and Kate Moss are lucky enough to get paid to wear designer clothes at red carpet events. With their natural beauty and killer looks, most models were born to be a star. Many supermodels have become house-hold names for just modeling alone.
These beautiful ladies have the option of dating anyone they want to, and you would think they would go for men that are just as easy on the eyes as they are. However, for the ladies on this list they chose to date and even marry men that would be considered less than average on most people’s books. These men are probably some of the luckiest guys out there seeing as they are dating some of the most beautiful women on earth. How they landed such beauties is a question that comes to many people’s minds, but the models do seem rather happy with their choice of spouse. Maybe these super-models got tired of dating good-looking men and wanted to go for men that would treat them like the goddesses they are.
