Top 10 Most Beautiful Blond Models 2017
The modelling world has popped with stunning ladies recently, with all figures, all dress-sizes, and all walks of life gracing the runway. Something has definitely happened to the world of fashion. Or, at least, it’s starting to.
We’ve decided to pay homage to some of them with the top 10 most beautiful blond models 2017, and we hope you’re ready for it!
1 – Bar Refaeli
If you were looking for top models to look for on Instagram, Bar Refaeli’s name would be right up there, a following of 2.6 million to back her up. The Isreali-born model can also boast of a staggering 1 million followers on Twitter, and close to 3 million followers on Facebook too, and it’s not surprising. The blonde-haired, blue-eyed babe is well known for her modelling work but has also made quite the name for herself in the acting, TV hosting, and business world also.
Who said you couldn’t have brains as well as beauty??
Alongside other models such as Michaela Bercu and Nina Brosh, Bar Refaeli has earned her spot as one of the most successful models to come from her home country, and, back in 2015, it was estimated that her very successful career had bagged her a net worth of over $20 million.
Believe it or not, it was when Bar Refaeli was only eight months old that she was first pushed into the limelight, clearly knowing what she wanted from life from a very early point. Back then, it was commercials that she made a name for herself in, although she was forced to take a break from modelling for a brief spell to have orthodontic treatment.
2 – Ginta Lapina
With over 141,000 Instagram followers, Ginta Lapina is fast taking the modelling world by storm. Originally born in Latvia, the beautiful blond model was initially scouted back in 2005, before making a debut on the catwalks of the New York Fashion Week in spring of 2008. In the same year, she signed with an agency — the Women Management modelling agency, famous also for representing many of the beautiful models across the globe – Eva Herzigova, Devon Aoki, Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, and plenty more.
Over the years, the blonde-haired and blue-eyed beauty has been featured in a number of campaigns, working alongside some of the biggest and best designers there are. As well as appearing in Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, she has also worked with Louis Vuitton, Oscar de la Renta, Vivienne Westwood, and a whole host more. We’re not jealous in the slightest …
(We definitely are!)
5ft 10in Ginta’s recent works include appearing on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Mexico and Latin America in June of this year (2017).
3 – Karlie Kloss
American-born Karlie Kloss is not just a model, she’s a former Victoria’s Secret model, and a businesswoman/entrepreneur on top of that. It’s all very impressive stuff when you consider that this beauty is only 25 years of age, born on August 3rd, 1992.
At 6ft 2in tall, she has been described as having a very powerful catwalk walk, and one that has earned a place working alongside some of the most desired designers. She had three contracts with Christian Dior in a row, and that was after Tyra Banks sung her praises publicly. People just couldn’t get enough of the model, and the work continued to pour in for her.
She hasn’t had the easiest of rides, a few of her campaigns causing a bit of controversy. She posed as a geisha in the March 2017 issue of Vogue, a decision that was considered culturally inappropriate, and she later apologised to her fans and those that she had offended.
These days, you’ll find Karlie Kloss on her Youtube channel, being as much of a babe as ever, and she’s also the current face of Swarovski, replacing Miranda Kerr in 2016.
Oh, and we can’t possibly forget that’s part of the Taylor Swift gang too. We’d love to be a part of that gang. There’d be no “bad blood”, that’s for sure.
4 – Gisele Bundchen
37-year-old Gisele Bundchen is famous for many things. She was, to start with, the girl who started a massive ‘wave of success’ for Brazilian models. In the early part of the 2000’s, Gisele was a model for the Victoria’s Secret Angels, and Vogue even went as far as to say that she brought the “sexy” back to modelling. For a brief spell, “heroin chic” and waif-like models were all the rage. Many publications give thanks to Gisele for spelling the end of that, to a certain degree.
Proving a big hit in the modelling world, it wasn’t long before Gisele turned her hand to acting, appearing in the 2006 hit, The Devil Wears Prada, in a supporting role. And that’s not all; Gisele does her fair share for various charitable organisations, such as Red Cross and Save the Children. We can’t fail to mention her role for the United Nations Environment Programme too, as Goodwill Ambassador.
5 – Elsa Hosk
29-year-old Swedish fashion model, Elsa Hosk, is not just a model, but a basketball player too, which we think is super cool. At just under 5ft 10in, she certainly has height on her side, and the blonde hair and blue eye colour combo seem to work very well in her favour too.
You may not have heard a name an awful lot, but there’s a good chance you’re about to. She actually started her modelling career at just 14 years old but took a break to concentrate on getting her schooling finished first. You know what it’s like when you’re growing up too – you change your mind about everything, every five minutes. That’s what Elsa did, initially changing her mind to basketball, but after discovering that the sport wasn’t quite as big in her home country, she went right back to modelling again. It was clearly a decision that was great for her, as 2016 was the year that she opened the Fashion Show for Victoria’s Secret.
6 – Devon Windsor
Back to American soil, 23-year-old Devon Windsor is definitely one of the top 10 beautiful blond models 2017 to keep your eyes peeled for. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Devon is most known for appearing in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows, years 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
It was when she was just 14 that talent scouts first snapped her up, and after graduating from high school made the very brave choice to move from Missouri to New York, with dreams of becoming a full-time model.
Devon isn’t actually a natural blonde, but when Prada tells you to bleach your hair, models tend to do what they say. And it was in September of 2013 that Devon found herself faced with that request. Happily obliging, bleach blond hair firmly in place, she loved it so much that she decided to keep the blond bombshell look. That same year, Victoria’s Secret snapped her up, and so did the Love Moschino label.
Maybe blondes do have more fun?!
7 – Heidi Klum
Businesswoman, model, actress, author, fashion designer, TV producer, singer … Is there anything else that Heidi Klum would like to add to the list of professions? One of her biggest accomplishments was to become the first ever German Victoria’s Secret Angel, but her career certainly has just gone from strength to strength.
Heidi didn’t exactly get scouted for her beauty, but it was when she was growing up in Germany (where she was born) that a friend persuaded her to enter into a modelling competition. Out of over twenty-five thousand entrants, Heidi came first, back in 1992, and was offered her first contract. Things have gone so well for her since then, with the producer role of Project Runway, clothing lines, jewellery designing, and even coming out with a couple of her own fragrances. One might say that this beautiful blond has fine quite well for herself!
8 – Gigi Hadid
Los-Angeles born Gigi Hadid might only be 22 years of age, but she’s a force to be reckoned with in the fashion world, especially along with her equally as famous sister, Bella Hadid.
Just in case you were wondering where her exotic good looks and name comes from, her father was a real estate developer who was American-Palestinian, and her mother was also a model, Yolanda Hadid, who was also American, but of Dutch-born descent.
It was actually when this babe was just two years old that she was first picked up to model with Baby Guess, but she only modelled for a few years before turning her attention to schooling. It was only later on, in 2011, that she made her modelling return, and strolled right back in Guess like she’d never left.
Things have just gone from strength to strength for this beautiful blond since then, and it seems barely a day goes past that we don’t see her in the media, usually for all the right reasons. Of course, it helps to be one-half of one of the most talked-about couples in the world right now, with One Direction’s Zayn Malik.
9 – Candice Swanepoel
Another Victoria’s Secret Angel, this time in the form of 29-year-old Candice Swanepoel, born in South Africa. She’s a model that has worked with some of the best names in the fashion and designing industry, and has graced the catwalks for the likes of Ralph Lauren, Tom Ford, Oscar de la Renta, Guess?, Michael Kors, and many, many more.
Of course, we can’t mention Candice’s impressive portfolio of work without having a special mention for that 2010 Kardashian swimwear campaign, of which she played a part, and in the same year, she was picked up for the lucrative spot of Victoria’s Secret Angel. And, just in case you needed any more proof of this beautiful blond’s success, just last year (2017), Forbes placed her at number 8 on the list of “World’s Top-Earning Models”, with rumoured earnings of close to eight million dollars.
10 – Kate Moss
Kate Moss rose to fashion because of various collabs with the designer, Calvin Klein, and this 43-year-old model was actually first picked up by scouts at the young age of just 14. She came into her own at around the same time that thin and waif-like models were all the rage — the so-called “heroin-chic” era, and just a few years ago, in 2013, British Vogue acknowledged her work with fashion over the years (25 at the time), awarding her at the British Fashion Awards.
Of course, things haven’t always been easy for the supermodel, with a number of allegations following her partying years, and quite a few celeb relationships over the years. She might have worked with basically every name in the fashion world, but who could forget the past boyfriends, such as Pete Doherty, controversial frontman for Libertines?
