Besides modeling, she has launched her own fashion clothing line named ‘Robert Riley’s. She is also quite active on social media, with 17 million followers on her Instagram account and around 992 thousand followers on Twitter.

Bella Hadid began her modeling career with a Flynn Skye commercial project at the age of 16. Soon after, she was featured in other projects including the ‘Swan Sittings’ by Lesa Amoore and ‘Smoking Hot’ by Holly Copeland. She also did campaigns for Chrome Hearts in 2013 and 2014.

Yael Shelbia Cohen ( born August 31, 2001) is an Israeli fashion model and actress. She has appeared in a number of international modeling campaigns. Cohen became a leading model for Castro from 2017 and Renuar from 2018. In 2019, Shelbia was chosen to lead Kylie Jenner's new skincare range. Yael currently stars in the Israeli television series Palmach on Teen Nick and Yes TV Kids.

Her modeling soon led to controversy and opposition in her Ulpana, which threatened to send a letter to the Israeli Education Ministry to expel her. Her family however, had been supportive of her career, so long as it would not interfere with her religious studies. And after consultation with Israel's Religious Education Ministry, she was allowed to continue her studies on condition of following certain guidelines. However, combining a modeling career with a religious lifestyle, has led to difficulties, including in terms of modesty of clothing. During a modeling campaign in Milan, she had to live on crackers for four days, as she could not find kosher food. She says she had lost many modeling contracts, due to her keeping of the Sabbath and choices in clothing.

The speed of the success of her career both in Europe and Israel, has led to comparisons to Shlomit Malka, Dorit Revelis and Sofia Mechetner.

As of 2020, Shelbia serves as a soldier in the Israeli Air Force of the Israel Defense Forces, rather than serving in the Sherut Leumi as a civilian. The latter is what most religious Jewish girls in Israel opt to do.

In 2018, she modelled for Kim Kardashian's brand KKW Beauty, where her photos were chosen by Kim Kardashian.

In 2019, Shelbia was chosen to lead Kylie Jenner's Biotic Skincare range. In the same year, she was cast for her debut acting role in a television series about the Israeli Palmach forces. It is a teen adventure period drama series set in 1946, two pivotal years before the State of Israel was founded. A seemingly innocent training farm secretly functions as a Strike Forces (also known as Palmach) training base and recruitment center for exceptional teens, as well as a home-base for illegal Jewish immigration missions and special ops against the British Mandate. The show debuted in 2020, Shelbia plays Ruth.

The show ran from August 23, 1998 to May 18, 2006 and became one of the highest watched sitcoms in the United States.

Her role as ‘Lily’ in the film, ‘Black Swan’, which released in 2010, proved her mettle as a versatile actress, who could don any role and pull it off with ease. Her rivalry with the lead character in the film and her stupendous ballet techniques for which she trained for four hours a day, seven days a week, not only garnered the appreciation of critics but the audience as well. The movie was nominated for a total of 5 Academy Awards and is slated as one of her biggest films yet, with a total collection of $329 million at the box-office.

Charlize Theron is an academy award wining actress who is as much appreciated for her acting skills as she is admired for her glowing beauty. She is best known for her roles in the movies ‘The Devil’s Advocate’, ‘The Cider House Rules’, and the critically acclaimed ‘Monster’. She is very dedicated to her profession and never gives second thoughts to dropping her glamorous image for a role that requires her to look ugly or unkempt. Despite being one of the most beautiful Hollywood actresses she gladly took on the unglamorous role of playing a serial killer in the movie ‘Monster’ which won her several awards and accolades including the Academy Award for Best Actress. Success did not come easily to this talented woman. Born in South Africa, she endured a difficult childhood; her drunkard father was shot at and killed by her mother in self-defence. In spite of all the difficulties, her mother encouraged her to move to the United States and pursue her dreams of becoming an actress. She met a talent agent in a quirky incident at a bank, and soon landed a small role in a film. Eventually she started getting bigger roles and rose to prominence during the late 1990s with films that were big hits at the box office.
