What 10 Famous Models Looked Like When They Were Kids
Those of you who read our articles every day may have noticed that we love to look at pictures of celebrities when they were younger. There’s something nice about looking at images from a time before celebrities were stopped on the street to sign autographs and answer questions for reporters. So this time, we wanted to see what today’s best models looked like when they were little.
At Bright Side, we did our homework and we have to admit, it was rather fun. So now we want to present to you, the childhood photos of some of the most beautiful women in the world so you can see just how much they’ve changed. Our team was especially impressed to see the before and after pics of Gisele Bündchen.
10. Doutzen Kroes
Dutch supermodel, Doutzen Kroes, gained international attention when she became a Victoria’s Secret Angel (among the many others included in this list). This muse’s career is extensive and includes advertising campaigns for brands such as L’Oréal, Tiffany & Co., and Calvin Klein. Does she look like she’s changed a lot since childhood, or does she still have the same face?
9. Joan Smalls
The girl on the left probably could never have imagined in her wildest dreams that she was on the verge of starting an impressive career. But that’s exactly what happened to this Puerto Rican supermodel, Joan Smalls, who would become the first Latin American model to represent the Estée Lauder cosmetic brand.
8. Gigi Hadid
Did you know that Gigi Hadid started her career in the fashion industry when she was as young as 2 years old? In fact, she was a child model for Guess. And judging from the photo on the left, we can understand why she caught the brand’s eye when she was such a little girl. Do you agree?
7. Bella Hadid
People say that sisters, Bella and Gigi Hadid, looked alike when they were both still young girls. Well, there’s at least one thing that we can know for sure: just like her older sister, Bella has had a meteoric rise in the fashion world. She has had the privilege of modeling for brands such as Fendi, Versace, and Oscar de la Renta.
6. Karlie Kloss
We can safely say that Karlie Kloss’s modeling career has been a success from the very beginning. She started as a model for Abercrombie Kids and other well-known brands. But in the first Fashion Week she took part in, this muse walked for top-notch companies such as Calvin Klein, Mark Jacobs, Carolina Herrera and Doo.Ri. What a debut!

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen began her career at the age of 14 and stood out internationally as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. In fact, signed a $25 million deal with Victoria Secret and became one of the highest paid models in the world. Bündchen gave her final farewell to the catwalk for the historic parade for the opening of the Rio Olympic Games in 2016, which was a special honor for her since she’s from Brazil. However, she has not put her modeling career completely aside and continues to sweep the board in numerous advertising campaigns.
