It makes sense that lot of models eventually make the leap into TV, film and music. They’re jaw-droppingly sexy, well-connected and are already pro in front of the camera.

Well, with professional eyebrow-wearer Cara Delevingne’s new film Paper Towns coming out, we figured there was no better time to celebrate some of the sexiest models-turned-actresses in the business, and most importantly, find out where you can see them next…
