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.
