Prior to the bestselling cookbooks, TV shows, and president-approved Twitter account, Chrissy Teigen was a swimsuit model, a career she walked the catwalk at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami. On Instagram Sunday, she shared a bunch of fashion week photos (including the 2010 ones above), reflecting the nondescript reality of her modeling days.

« I talked about my Miami Fashion Week days and how it was in the Basically my equivalent of Parisian couture was, « said Teigen about the post that you can see here. « $ 200 per show minus the agency and I would wait 5/6 hours on the floor of the Mondrian to be seen. »

« Book a show at the Setai, walk over the pool, oh my god the excitement, C-class Naomi Campbell comes through hhhhh !!!!!! » Teigen continued. « Dinner with Randos at Prime 112, order enough food to take home for the week because the fashion show money would go away with agency fees. Sleep with 5 other girls in a two-bedroom, MEMORIES! »

When speaking to Glamor UK last year, Teigen spoke about the toll her swimsuit modeling career had taken on her self-esteem and revealed that she had been laid off from three modeling jobs after being measured on the set had been. « It’s been my entire trade-offs career. With modeling agencies it was normal to be measured too, and I mostly did it myself. So if you had direct bookings without auditions, [the clients] knew what they were getting. There were jobs who I would show up to and they said my measurements were incorrect and it was the worst feeling of being left out of the job. « 

Teigen reflected on a particularly troubling incident: » The customer had me right out I had half of my makeup done and they asked me to get up and take some photos to test the light, but they sent [the pictures] to my agency and the client fired me immediately. I don’t have any Work done without going to a casting meeting for years. « 

The end of her modeling career, said Teigen, helped her be kinder to her body. « I weighed myself every morning, afternoon and night. I knew what the scales would say after every meal. I did this for eight years and had this one weight that I wanted to be at, » she told the magazine. « That has changed with Luna and Miles [her son, two], where it took me a year to get used to my new normal number.

 » I look at [my body] in the shower and think, ‘Arghhh, these kids’ « she continued. But I don’t take aesthetics that seriously right now. It’s very fulfilling not to have the pressure to put on a bathing suit and I look good for a magazine while I am walking around a beach doing what i did while modeling. i don’t feel like my body is the place where i’ll be fucked up for myself. i think enough about things i have got mad at myself myself, I can’t add my body. «
