Nicole Trunfio, 30
LIKE MANY MODEL success stories, Nicole Trunfio was scouted on the street as a striking 15-year-old.
But she almost missed her calling, initially refusing to sign to an agency. She eventually obliged, however, and went on to win TV’S Search For A Supermodel, igniting a global career.
“My first big moment was being cast by Tom Ford to walk for Gucci in Milan,” she recalls. “It changed my life overnight. Back then, everyone watched who he chose and followed his lead.”
Trunfio has since welcomed a son with American musician Gary Clark Jr, whom she married earlier this year.
