The 2000s saw a shift in the modeling industry - the decade was dominated by Brazilian Bombshells, Russian dolls, and baby-faced beauties. The list of top models includes household names like Gisele Bundchen, Natalia Vodianova, Gemma Ward, Agyness Deyn, Coco Rocha, and the like.
The common thread running through the popularity of these models seems to be this, that they're white, thin, and tall. With only a few exceptions, the industry was a far cry from the diversity seen today. The era was dominated by girls from Eastern Europe and South America: Natalia Vodianova, Natasha Poly, and Sasha Pivovarova are from Russia, Anja Rubik is Polish, and Gisele Bundchen, Isabeli Fontana, and Caroline Trentini come from Brazil.
