Some were discovered the traditional way - through simply walking into an agency, or being stopped in the street or shops by a model scout (even when they were as young as 12-years-old!).

One male model even had his now-agent run up to him through a busy crowd in London's Covent Garden to give him her business card.



Others were persuaded to give posing a go by friends and family already working as models (including Victoria's Secret Angel Taylor Hill's sister Mackinley).

While some models were discovered in a very 21st century way - through emailing in photos to agencies, or being spotted by agents on Facebook.
