8 Models Who Don't Have Typical Runway Looks

High fashion models are usually kind of funky looking. Sure, there’s gorgeous girls amongst the model set, but for every Gisele Bundchen or Alessandra Ambrosio is a Lindsay Wixon or Kelly Mittendorf. While the industry still has several strides to make regarding racial and body diversity, runway models often represent an unconventional type of beauty, despite the fact that most are tall, thin, and white.

But some of the most successful models buck the standards of the industry itself. Designers may use a girl who kind of looks like a Praying Mantis to front a campaign, but she’ll still have a certain body type or look that designers, agents, and scouts look for in a model. It’s hard out there for a tall, skinny girl with couture catwalk dreams, but these next 8 models prove that although the industry has a long way to go, you can still have a hugely successful career even if you don’t have that typical model look. In fact, those unconventional, unexpected features are part of what made them household names.

Click through for the best top models who don’t have what we’d usually think of as “model-y” features.
