1. Analeigh Tipton
Not only was Analeigh Tipton a model, she was also a champion ice skater when she was younger. This blue-eyed beauty from Minnesota decided to let her looks help her advance in her career and was signed by a Los Angeles modeling agency. But then she saw her chance in America’s Next Top Model where she participated in the 11th cycle and blew everyone away by her natural talent and resourcefulness.
However, she ended up third in the competition. This opened the door of success to young Analeigh who was only 20 then. After the show, she got the opportunity to be on the cover of prestigious fashion magazines such as Seventeen, Marie Claire, Maxim and Vogue. But Tipton wanted more than just that, so she switched to acting. She made her debut in The Green Hornet and acted in Crazy, Stupid, Love. 2014 was a great year for the young actress who got her first leading role in a romantic comedy Two Night Stand.
