7 Gorgeous Models Who Were Told They Weren't Pretty Enough

That's right. There are people out there who told Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks, Gigi Hadid and more stunners that they'd never make it

GISELE BÜNDCHEN

Now she's the highest-paid model in the world, but when Bündchen first started modeling in 1995, fashion industry insiders told her she'd never make it. "I remember some people telling me my nose was too big or my eyes were too small, that I could never be on a magazine cover," she tells PEOPLE. "It wasn't easy to be 14 and hear that kind of criticism. It made me feel insecure." Well, as Beyoncé says: Best revenge is your paper.
