We’ve been checking for supermodel Selita Ebanks ever since her fierce debut catwalk strut at the 2005 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. But the 5’9″ Women Management model is more than one of fashion’s hottest bodies–she’s also a brainy beauty.

Fast-forward a few years, and Ebanks was working with legends like Ralph Lauren and photographer Bruce Weber.
