You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby

Isn’t it AMAZING that every baby is the most beautiful baby in the world and every mother happens to have it???…it’s just one of those miracles – a bit like the loaves and fishes…but truly we all think our darlings are the most beautiful creations – like EVER!! ..(I just happen to be right by the way)…

But sometimes I wonder do beautiful babies become beautiful adults?.. Do those babies who only have a face a mother could love (admit it – you’ve thought it once or twice) turn into the most attractive thing on 2 legs..Do cute babies become pretty and endearing or does that cute little button nose become a sore point?…

Well, I thought I would delve into the past of some of the world’s most beautiful models and see was their path to fame and fortune likely to be paved with gold or more like the yellow brick road…hardly noticeable at first, broken and a bit dodgy in places, then this shining path leading to the bright lights and big city!…

1) CHRISTY TURLINGTON…

Discovered at age 14, this was a no brainer really. Despite her chopped hair, it was obvious she would be one of the world’s most sought after models…Now an activist and entrepreneur Christy still models, is married to Ed Burns and has 2 kids…

2) LINDA EVANGELISTA…

Those eyes and that nose were a dead give away that this little lady was going to go far. Never afraid to walk to her own tune, she’s famous for saying she wouldn’t get out of bed for less than €10,000. She now has one son and looks to be enjoying motherhood and life!…

3) CARA DELEVINGNE…

For a little girl who could have been easily mistaken for been a boy..Cara was on the cover of Vogue by the time she was 10!..with her grandmother – a lady in waiting to Princess Margaret, her Godmother – Joan Collins, and her Godfather – Nicholas Coleridge (Conde Nast President)..hers was never going to be an ordinary life…

4) ADRIANA LIMA…

To find a photo of Adriana as a child NOT crying is a rare thing..she really disliked getting her photo taken…that changed and she is now one of Victoria Secrets best known angels…famously a virgin until she married she is now a wife and mother of 2..

5) DOUTZEN KROES..

This Dutch beauty may have been your regular pretty kid, but 4 years ago she ranked 5th on the Forbes List of highest paid models…an ex Victoria Secret Angel – this mother of 2 is still top of her game…

6) GISELLE BUNDCHEN…

You can tell Giselle has always been a natural beauty with a face the camera loves..Discovered aged 14 on a school trip by a talent scout..she is in the Guinness book of records as the highest earning model ever!…

7) MIRANDA KERR…

Miranda obviously just grew into a bigger version of her kiddy years…she hasn’t changed a bit! This is one clever lady..after entering the modeling world at aged 13, she now has her own skincare range (Kora Organics), is an accomplished author and is a practicing Buddhist…

10) CINDY CRAWFORD…

You’d need to be blind not to see this girl’s potential…it wasn’t until she turned 19 that she started modeling – and she hasn’t stopped! Obviously a very bright girl Cindy was class valedictorian at her graduation (Valedictorian is an academic title of success used in the USA for the student who delivers the closing or farewell statement at a graduation ceremony (called a valedictory). The chosen valedictorian is usually the student with the highest ranking among his/her graduating class)..she is one of the most famous Supermodels…

11) HEIDI KLUM…

Well, I never would have guessed this little girl was Heidi Klum (pronounced ‘kloom’ – I’m a stickler for getting names right)..her fame has only grown with her energy and beauty..mother of 5, Heidi is engaged to her current beau and doesn’t look to be showing any signs of slowing down…

12) NATHALIA VOLDIANOVA…

With those eyes, it’s no wonder this Russian model would rule the world. Founder of the charity ‘NAKED HEART FOUNDATION’, Nathalia has 3 children and is famous for her rags to riches life story…she replaced Kate Moss as the face of Calvin Klein and stayed with him for 8 seasons!…

13) KATE MOSS…

Well she certainly had a certain Je Ne Sais Quoi didn’t she.?…also discovered at the age of 14 (lucky number for models!), she has starred in campaigns, fronted magazines, strutted the catwalk and shimmied in music videos..her brother and half-sister also modelled – so there is something in those genes!..

14) TYRA BANKS..

Okay, the dodgy hair does nothing here, but this girl full of determination and strength is now one of the world’s most recognized faces…the first black woman to be signed to a cosmetics company – Tyra Banks is an institution!…
