Hunt, 26, was born in Wilson, North Carolina, a small town of 50,000 people in the heart of God’s country about 40 miles east of Raleigh, the state capital.
But at 5-feet, ll-inches tall and strikingly beautiful, it didn’t take long for her to make her way to New York City. A photographer discovered her while she was visiting nearby Charlotte, N.C.
She debuted at the Prada show at Paris Fashion Week in 2007, when she was 18. Since then, she’s rocketed to the top ranks of models. She’s walked in more than 180 fashion shows for more than 20 major fashion brands.
She’s walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the past two years and joined the elite squad of Angels earlier this year.
These days, her profile couldn’t be much higher. She joined Taylor Swift’s cast of celebrity pals for the country singer’s “Bad Blood” video.
Yet, she’s still down to earth.
When asked by Vanity Fair magazine last year how she says hello, she replied “Hi, ya’ll!”
She describes herself as “eclectic, masculine, feminine, street, easy.”
Check out her photos and see if you agree. Unfortunately, they are too risque to post here. But you can see them at EssCurve.com. Warning: nsfw!
