Growing up in Irving, Texas, Erin Wasson spent much of her youth engaged in a variety of tomboyish activities — with a particular emphasis on sports. And to this day she still has a passion for watching and playing sports (basketball primarily, in case you were wondering).
It wasn’t until Erin’s mid-teens that her beauty came sharply into focus, having been entered into the inaugural Kim Dawson agency model search by her father. Erin’s victory over her competitors came as something of a surprise to the young woman, as she had never given a second thought to the pursuit of modeling as an actual career.
With her foot firmly in the door, Erin soon found herself at the center of various high-profile marketing campaigns for companies such as Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Donna Karan. In 2002, Erin became the face of Maybelline after signing a contract with the famous makeup company. She has also gone on to appear on a variety of magazine covers, including Allure, Esquire and France’s Vogue.
Aware that most models don’t last more than a few years, Erin has already begun planning for her future by taking on a cameo role in the television show Beautiful People. For now, it’s clear that Erin’s gorgeous visage and smokin’ body will continue to grace magazine covers and advertisements for a while.
