Then: Tyra Banks (1996)
Tyra Banks began modeling at the age of 15. After getting rejected by four agencies, she was finally picked up by Elite Model Management and given the opportunity to walk in Europe. She booked a record 25 shows at her very first Paris fashion week in 1991. Banks has since become one of the most recognized models on the planet and has appeared on hundreds of magazine covers and in several big-name campaigns. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Albert Ortega/Getty Images)
