How models were discovered
(Just in case there's another thread, I searched to find a thread and nothing came back.)

I always find these stories fun and interesting.

Irina Kulikova:

Was discovered while eating in a Moscow restaurant, with her mom, by Liv Tyler. Liv walked up and asked her if she was a model and then IMG flew her right out to fashion week.

I was attending school in England for fine art and I started getting really interested in modeling. A friend who is a talented makeup artist suggested I see Models1, so I decided to visit the agency and try my luck.

I met a photographer in Ukraine. He took some pictures of me and suggested that I should go to New York to try modeling. I came to New York and my friend called Kwok at Marilyn. We spent a few weeks developing my book and image. Since then I have been shooting for magazines, and working with interesting people (designers, photographers, stylists, etc.). It’s been really fun for me.

Karlie Kloss:

Quote:
She was discoverd in St. Louis, she went to a model search for a local benefit runway show (called Thread of Hope) (when she was 13) at West County Mall. She did it to support the cause and for a family friend. There were scouts from Elite Chicago and Elite NYC there. She never thought of modeling before that.

Jeff and Mary Clarke of Mother Model Management discovered Karlie at the fashion show and knew right then and there that she was meant to be big. And IMG kept watch of her after that, for 2 years due to her age. Once she turned 15 they picked her up.

Lol, I had no idea Ksenia Kahnovich was (I knew Alice Burdeu was) but usually you never hear of anyone after those shows.

Suvi Koponen also won her country's version of Next Top Model if I'm not mistaken.
