The recent success of Anna , the last film produced by Luc Besson, was the occasion for the beautiful Sasha Luss, ex-muse of Karl Lagerfeld, to make herself known to the general public. Before her, many models, men and women, have already gone from the catwalks to the big screen, and like Monica Bellucci, Milla Jovovich, or Ashton Kutcher, some celebrities who started their careers as models then knew an international success by revealing a certain talent for comedy.
This is why, at Boredyawn, we decided to present you 10 former models who also had a brilliant career on the big screen.
10. Cara Delevingne
Karl Lagerfeld’s little protégé began her modeling career in 2009 at the age of 17, and barely a year later, she became the face of Burberry . She then went on to parades for various major brands such as Dolce & Gabbana , Chanel and Victoria’s Secret .
After making a few appearances in films like Anna Karénine or L’Affaire Jessica Fuller , Cara Delevingne was quickly offered more important roles in projects such as Pan , Suicide Squad , Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets or Her Smell .
9. Jamie Dornan
The actor who played the dark Christian Gray actually started his career as a model in 2002. He posed for brands like Hugo Boss, Armani, Gap, Desigual or Calvin Klein, of which he was the muse in 2004 .
Jamie Dornan quickly led a double career, alternating his schedule between photo studios and film sets. We could thus see him playing in Marie-Antoinette , Fifty Shades of Gray , or in the series Once Upon a Time and The Fall .
8. Sasha Luss
The pretty Sasha Luss began her modeling career at 14 in Russia, her native country, before being spotted by Karl Lagerfeld. She then chained photos and fashion shows for the most prestigious haute couture houses: Prada, Versace, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Lanvin, Chanel, and even Dior , to name a few.
After having lent her forms in motion-capture to embody a character of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets , Sasha Luss obtained the explosive first role of the film Anna , by Luc Besson, released in 2019.
