If you’re as obsessed with “Real Housewives of Atlanta
” as we are, then you’re already well-acquainted with the newest cast member, reality newcomer Cynthia Bailey. But did you know that for the past 18 years Bailey has enjoyed a jet-setting career as one of fashion’s most highly sought-after models? After high school, with nothing more than a few pageant titles and her Homecoming Queen sash to her name, Bailey moved to New York to become a model. Before she knew it, she’d booked the cover of ESSENCE (her first assignment, yay us!), and was storming runways in Milan, Paris and London. These days, the mother of 10-year-old Noelle is living in Atlanta with her new hubby, entrepreneur Peter Thomas. Here, we take a look back at some of the supermodel’s most memorable beauty looks.
