New careers of former models
I'm sorry if a topic like this already exists and mods feel free to merge it, but I didn't see one.

I was just looking at threads like Models who are disappearing and Supermodels of 80s/90s and it got me thinking. Modeling will only get you through for a what a decade? Yeah, a few are working past their 30s, but vast majority of models are probably done once mid 20s come rolling. So, what are those who used to grace the covers of world fashion magazines and strut down fashion's most exclusive runways are doing these days?

I'll start, with some obvious ones, lol

Tyra Banks - tv host
Janice Dickinson - founder of a 'modeling agency' and a professional hot mess

Georgina Grenville-where is she? Esther Canadas? Esther de Jong? Jodie Kidd? Yasmeen ? Rhea Durham? I could go on.

And what do the names of models in your signatures signify? The order of which you like them?

Off topic, but yes... that's usually how it works.

Amber Valletta is an actress now, even though she does an editorial every now and then.

I like this topic I think a lot of them go on to be actresses.. Maybe if things ever do cool down for Gemma, she'll take off more on her acting career, but somehow I think Gemma will just last as a model into her 30s!! I hope Cintia becomes an actress being as she wants to, (or at least wanted to!).

I wonder if any ex-models become like realtors or something random like that? They must make their living somehow.

A number of second tier models from the 90s became restaurant owners including Hailynne Cohen and a redheaded girl who I think did a Louis Vuitton ad, whose name escapes me, maybe Lucy Cunningham(??).
