Actress Molly Sims never planned on becoming a supermodel. Originally she wanted to be a lawyer and was pre-law at Vanderbilt University. However, a roommate convinced the green-eyed blonde to pose for a few photographs and send them to agencies in New York.
She agreed, and a few weeks later her life took drastic turn when the NEXT Modeling Agency signed her. Sims soon found herself traveling Germany, London and Milan to model instead of returning to Vanderbilt. So much for a legal career.
Which Sims credited as being a key factor to her success. As her career progressed, Sims appeared in many of the top fashion magazines, including Elle, Vogue and Madame Figaro. Magazine covers soon turned into advertisements, as Sims appeared for Nautica, Armani, Chanel and Victoria’s Secret.
Since “House of Style” helped launch the on-air careers of famous supermodels Cindy Crawford and Rebecca Ramijn-Stamos, it was no wonder the still-unknown Sims was nervous about the prospect. A few months after what she thought was an awful screen test.
