Models who have been rejected then accepted by agencies

Sounds like IMG are one good agency, I know when Lara Stone struggled to get work for SEVEN YEARS she became a star when signing to IMG!
They have a variety of models on their books and try to get them high fashion work, they also represent sports illustrated models like Heidi Klum and Kate Upton. I think they also put models out there internationally as they have international offices.
Though I can imagine it may be hard for models to get accepted by them. They rejected Lindsey Wixson in New York until Marilyn saw something in her. Yes she was signed to Vision in LA first and I think they are a commercial agency so I can see why some people strangely think Lindsey is more commercial. Though her agency in Kansas was probably a less reputable one and Kansas may not have much fashion association. It's still good that she built portfolio images and attracted Marilyn with them and such. I do remember hearing her big break came through when she was spotted on Models.com by a top photographer. Some times it feels like photographers and clients want a model but an agency doesn't.
I wonder if IMG would be interested in signing Lindsey on now that she's a big star, some models I wonder why IMG hasn't signed them on yet. There are a lot of stories about models actively trying to get in the industry. One model I'm inspired by is Bambi but I am wondering was she ever rejected, did she have previous experience before making it on the books of a big Australian agency?
