1. Stephanie Seymour is a famous supermodel. 

Stephanie began her modeling career when she was just a teenager in her hometown of San Diego. But her star completely skyrocketed to fame when she appeared on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in the late ’80s and early ’90s. She also served as one of the most famous Victoria’s Secret angels. Stephanie was in good company among some of the most famous models of the time, including Kate MossNaomi CampbellCindy Crawford and more. Stephanie hasn’t stopped modeling, either. In the last few years, she’s appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia, and loves to reminisce about her favorite photoshoots on social media.

2. Stephanie has also acted.

Along with modeling, Stephanie also has quite a few credits to her name when it comes to acting. Stephanie played Helen Frankenthaler in the 2000 film Pollock. The movie was a major critical success, and earned two Academy Award nominations, winning one for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, which went to Marcia Gay Harden. Two years later, Stephanie appeared in an episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

3. Stephanie is married to Peter Brant.

Stephanie has been married to producer and magazine publisher Peter Brant, 73, since 1995. Along with their darling son Harry, the couple share three children. They welcomed their first child, who is also named Peter, in December 1993 and married roughly two years later in July 1995. They welcomed Harry in 1996, and their third child together, daughter Lily Margaret, was born in 2004. The couple have had their ups and downs, however. They nearly divorced in 2009, but thankfully reconciled less than one year later and have stayed together ever since.

4. Stephanie has been married before. 

Before her marriage to Peter, Stephanie was involved with a few high-profile figures. She was previously married to guitarist Tommy Andrews from 1989-1990. Despite the fact that they divorced after merely one year of marriage, the couple did welcome son Dylan Thomas Andrews in 1990. Stephanie was also in a relationship with Axl Rose, which ended in the two suing one another in the latter half of 1993. The lawsuits, fortunately, were settled by the parties involved.
