Happy Birthday Supermodel
Stephanie Seymour (July 23, 1968) is a model from San Diego, CA. She began her modeling career at 14 years old working locally for department stores and newspapers. A year later she entered the Elite Model Management Look of the Year contest. She won first place and moved to New York to join the Elite Modeling agency.
When she was 15, she began dating John Casablancas, the head of Elite, who was already married at the time. After two years she moved in with Casablancas and she continued living with him until she was 19 when she ended the relationship. Seymour married guitarist, Tommy Andrews in 1989. The marriage lasted only a year, but resulted in the birth of Dylan Thomas Andrews in 1991.
At this time Seymour was dating actor, Warren Beatty, when she became involved with Axl Rose, the lead singer of Guns N' Roses. She appeared in the music videos for "Don't Cry" and "November Rain". Seymour and Rose lived together for two years when the relationship ended in disaster and the courtroom, leaving Rose in a deep depression.
While still with Rose, Seymour began an affair with the married Peter Brant. Brant is an American news print mogul, art collector and film producer. In 1995 they married and subsequently had three children. They reside in Connecticut.
Standing tall at 5'10", Stephanie is still one of the top models in the world, having achieved "Supermodel" status in the early nineties and appearing on hundreds of magazine covers. She is also noted as one of the models, along with Jill Goodacre and Frederique, who helped catapult the fledgling Victoria's Secret catalog into the behometh it is today. Now at 40, she still represents some of the top fashion and beauty companies in the world, including Chanel, Versace and L'Oreal.
