14 Gorgeous Models Who Married Below Their League

So, tell me if you have heard this one before: there’s a very wealthy man who can buy almost anything he wants in the world; he is average to below-average looking but has homes, cars and money as far as the eye can see, and oh, yeah, he also has his pick-of-the-litter when it comes to women. Super models, as it turns out, are drawn to money like bees and ants are drawn to honey. They love the lifestyle and are willing to lower their standards when it comes to appearances.

Models have a stigma of being a tad bit high maintenance - and that’s putting it mildly. They become accustomed to a certain lifestyle based solely on their appearance. They use their beauty as a weapon. And for many of these women, they want to be spoiled; they like having money—and lots of it. Now, we’re sure there are some that are hopeful they will find true love. But we’re betting that many of the models happen to be more interested with their love of money than their dreams of finding “true romance.”

These beauties and their beasts may get along for a while, but many times over, the relationships don’t last. However, it is lucrative while it lasts. These are 14 Gorgeous Models Who Married Below Their League.

14 Marisa Miller - Griffin Guess


13 Christie Brinkley - Billy Joel


12 Adriana Lima - Marko Jaric

11 Heidi Klum - Seal

Seal is a singer who hit the stratosphere of his industry when he sang “Kiss From A Rose.” His voice may bring chills down the spines of beautiful women all around the world, but he isn’t much of a looker. Then you have Victoria’s Secret legend Heidi Klum. Klum is gorgeous and a big time supermodel. Klum could easily be considered a solid 9 or 10 in her hay-day. Seal, on the other hand, doesn’t register when it comes to facial features and, of course, love is supposed to be blind. But we’re thinking his bank account and his smooth tunes may have had a lot to do with this relationship. Alas, they ended a pretty solid run of marriage after having 3 kids together.

10 Paulina Porizkova - Ric Ocasek

9 Padma Lakshmi - Salman Rushdie 


8 Brooke Shields - Chris Henchy 

7 Milla Jovovich - Luc Besson

6 Elle Macpherson - Gilles Bensimon


5 Kristy Hinze - James H. Clark


4 Stephanie Seymour - Peter M. Brant


3 Janice Dickinson - Albert Gerston


2 Linda Evangelista - Gerald Marie


Gerald Marie was another wealthy businessman when he ran into a much younger Linda Evangelista. Marie was head of Elite Modeling Agency in Paris which gave Evangelista good reason to pay attention to him. Evangelista was a beautiful Canadian supermodel. Their age difference didn’t stop their marriage when Evangelista, just 3 years into a budding modeling career, hooked up with Marie. Their marriage lasted 6 years and just three years later, at the age of 33, Evangelista was retired. Evangelista got a big pay day from her divorce with Marie.

1 Claudia Schiffer - Matthew Vaughn 


Matthew Vaughn is a successful film producer and director. He found early success producing Guy Ritchie’s hits Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. He then stepped behind the camera and has directed such movie hits as Kick Ass and X-Men: First Class. Vaughn is badly balding and short, while Claudia Schiffer is a very hot supermodel. In fact, it was just as Vaughn was enjoying his meteoric rise in the film industry in 2000 when he ended up running into Schiffer. Schiffer was on top of the modeling world in the 1990s but as the decade ended, her career was clearly downshifting. The two hooked up with the taller and more attractive Schiffer standing out above her shorter husband. The stars have aligned well for them, however, as they have been happily married for over a decade and are still going strong.
