Which Famous Model You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Ever wondered which famous model you were most like? Find out now based on your zodiac sign!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

If you’re an Aries, you are most likely  fearless and determined, like Rosie. She began working as a model at the young age of 15 and has been unstoppable since. She has walked runways for Givenchy, Valentino, Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton and Versace, to name a few. She has been in advertisement campaigns such as Dolce & Gabbana, Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret and more! She has even pursued an acting career.

Most recently, she became a mom to Jack Oscar Statham, with her husband Jason Statham. Ultimately, Rosie is a winner (as seen by the number of awards she’s won) and has proved to be successful at whatever she puts her mind to.

Gigi Hadid

As a Taurus, you and Gigi are both dedicated and patient, although have a tendency to be a little too stubborn at times. Despite her modelling career beginning when she was 2 years old, Gigi still took the time to focus on school while growing up before fully deciding to focus on her modelling career. As a Taurus, she was careful when making decisions about her career, not rushing into anything. She has found much success this way, having walked runways for high end designers, appeared on many magazine covers and even hosted a couple awards shows!

She has even shown her romantic Taurus side throughout her public relationship with musician Zayn Malik. With your persistence and elegance like Gigi, you are sure to find success in the business and romance departments.

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20):
Kate Upton

As a Gemini, you and Kate are extremely charming and witty, which will get you far especially in the modelling/entertainment industry! Kate really got her career start in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2011. Since then she has appeared in more issues along with doing many other covers and editorials for popular magazines such as Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and Esquire. 

Kate has also used her Gemini communication skills to expand her popularity via social media when videos of her dancing have gone viral. More of Kate’s fun and charming personality can be seen in the movie roles she’s done starring in The Other Woman as a sexy mistress and The Layover as the outgoing best friend. If you’re a Gemini like Kate, you are sure to live an exciting life no matter where it takes you!

Gisele Bündchen

As a Cancer, you and Gisele are the most nurturing and compassionate of all the signs. This can be seen in Gisele’s charity and environmental work. As one of the most wealthiest models, Gisele makes sure to donate and raise money for multiple charities such as Doctor’s Without Borders, Red Cross, and Save the Children. She was even awarded Greenest Celebrity at the International Green Awards one year.

Family and home life is also incredibly important for Cancers. Gisele is married to professional football player Tom Brady and they have 2 children together. She also has a stepchild from Brady’s previous marriage. She raises her family to have similar values as her, living a mostly plant-based diet in a home that uses solar energy. If you are a fellow Cancer, you also always make time for family despite your sometimes hectic schedule.

LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22):
Slick Woods

As Leos, you and Slick are extremely courageous, honest and open. Slick has shown her courage and honesty so far in her career by being open about her bisexuality and her marijuana smoking habits (even though it has costed her some jobs). She is a part of a newer generation of models who are mainly social media based. She has modelled for Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, and is one of the faces for Rhianna’s makeup brand Fenty Beauty!

Leo’s also tend to be entertaining and playful which can be seen from scrolling through Slick’s Instagram feed. Her signature look with her gapped teeth, shaved head and tattoos truly makes her memorable and stand out! She recently announced her pregnancy on her account and has not been shy posting photos of her pregnant belly. If you are a Leo like Slick, you are one unique individual!

Kaia Gerber

As Virgos, you and Kaia are hardworking and value organization. This can be seen on Kaia’s clean and professional Instagram feed. Kaia is the daughter of famous model Cyndi Crawford and has undoubtable been groomed for the modelling world from a young age. As someone who grew up in a family of models, she knows what she’s doing and how to work hard at it.

Despite her modelling success, as a 16 year old girl Kaia is still attending high school and succeeding at that as well! She is an honour student which certainly comes from her Virgo traits of resourcefulness and efficiency. As Virgos, you and Kaia certainly make an unstoppable pair!

Bella Hadid

If you are a Libra, you are most likely charming, fair and fashionable like Bella. Obviously as a model you would assume Bella has an interest in the fashion industry but this is something you may not know about her: She attended a design school and hopes to continue her studies once she’s done modelling to pursue Fashion Photography. As Libras, you enjoy high fashion and expensive brands, always taking pride in looking good.

Another important value to Libra’s is justice, as the sign of the scales. Bella has shown this quality during discussions of Trump’s immigration policies where she has been open about her opposing views due to her family history. She believes in equality and fairness as most Libras do.

Ashley Graham

As Scorpios, you and Ashley tend to be the most mysterious of the zodiac. For instance, Ashley tend’s to be more private about her personal life, despite having over 7 million followers on Instagram and living in the public eye.

As a magnetic and trendsetting Scorpio, Ashley has paved the way for curvy models in the industry.  For instance, Ashley was the first plus sized model to be featured on a cover of a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Apart from her modelling, she has also moved onto judging for America’s Next Top Model and hosting for Miss USA. Ashley is passionate about what she does and explores all aspects of the industry. She even has written a few books about her modelling experience. Scorpios enjoy taking charge and Ashley certainly has in order to reach the success she has.

Hailey Baldwin

If you’re a Sagittarius like Hailey, you are most likely optimistic and outspoken. Hailey always seems to see the positive side of things as someone whose faith is very important to her. She credits much of her positivity to her relationship with God, and often shares Bible quotes on her social media. Despite a foot injury when she was younger which affected her dreams of becoming a professional ballet dancer, Hailey has found a way to move on and succeed in modelling despite it not being the original plan.

Sagittarians value travel and adventure which is natural for a model, travelling around the world to do photoshoots and fashion shows in many different countries. With such a fun personality, Hailey has also found success hosting and appearing on talk shows where she gets to show it off! The most notable recent news is Hailey got engaged to fellow superstar Justin Bieber. While Sagittarians aren’t known for settling down, we’re wishing the best to the young couple!

Kate Moss

British model Kate Moss is quite legendary, which is not surprising for a Capricorn– the most hardworking sign. Despite some drug scandals throughout her career, Kate has managed to work hard to continue her modelling career and expand into other ventures. She has appeared on multiple lists for “sexiest women,” “most influential” and “top earning models”, which demonstrates her success.

The other ventures mentioned above include singing, as she has been featured on many tracks from different artists including Oasis, Primal Scream and the Lemonheads. She has also designed handbags and put her name on multiple perfume lines. Despite a few bumps along the way, Kate shows her Capricorn qualities in her ability to have a long and prosperous career.

Liu Wen

If you’re an Aquarius like Liu, you are very communicative and open-minded. Liu especially personifies the futuristic quality of Aquarius’s by setting so many records in the modelling industry for Asian models.  For example, she was the first East Asian model to walk the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, the first Asian model to make Forbes magazine’s highest paid model list, and the first Chinese model to be featured on the cover of American Vogue.

In addition, like most Aquarians, Liu is very in touch with technology. She is truly a leader in the digital modelling age, having huge followings on Instagram and Weibo, a Chinese social media platform. Liu is also a free spirit who has never committed to a romantic relationship quite yet, which is unsurprising for a freedom loving Aquarius. If you’re an Aquarius like Liu, you enjoy being free and innovative so you will definitely be making an impact on the world like her!

Ruby Rose

If you are a Pisces like Ruby, you tend to be the most sensitive and artistic of all the signs. Ruby has definitely shown her artistic side throughout her career, spending time as not only a model but a television personality, actor and musician. She also has a great imagination and vision, creating her own short films when she was unable to get any actual auditions.

Pisces are old souls, very wise and compassionate. This can be seen in Ruby with her charitable efforts for animal welfare and youth mental health. As someone who went through a lot during her childhood (being abused while also coming out as lesbian and later gender fluid) it is important for her to show support for these organizations. As Pisces’, you and Ruby are empathetic beings who are bound to be successful in their creative endeavours.
