The Untold Truth Of Taylor Hill
Taylor Hill is a very famous woman. You might not know her name, but you must know her face. She is headlining magazines and fashion shows all around the world. Taylor Hill is the next big thing in the modeling industry.
Being a model, she is a famous figure. However, there is much more to her than meets the eye. Keep reading to find out more about Taylor Hill.
She was discovered at a dude ranch
Taylor grew up in the town of Granby in the state of Colorado. She loves horses and, the closest place she could ride horses was at a ranch that was in her home town.
It was at this dude ranch that Jim Jordan discovered her. He took a few photos of her while she was riding a horse and immediately recognized her potential. Jim approached Taylor and offered her the opportunity to become a top model in New York.
He told Taylor that she had the potential to travel the world as a model. Taylor pitched the idea to her parents, but they didn’t arrive at a decision immediately. Taylor’s father was protective of her daughter, and he decided to find out more about Jim Jordan.
Jim managed to convince Taylor’s dad that he wasn’t a fraud. Taylor’s dad finally allowed Taylor to go for an interview in Los Angeles. Hill was only 14 at the time and, so her parents accompanied her to the interview.
Jim took some photos of her at the interview, and he submitted them to various agencies in Los Angeles. Jim’s marketing plan worked and, after a few days, Taylor signed a modeling deal with Ford.
The move into modeling was a huge step up for a girl who was bullied in high school. Taylor never felt like she fit in with any group during her schooling days. She was insulted because of her height and because she was skinny. The bullies referred to her as “tall, skinny Taylor.”
The high school bullying she received meant that she was initially pessimistic about trying her luck as a model. However, she was inspired to prove the doubters wrong. It’s safe to say that no one doubts her now.
She became the youngest Victoria’s Secret Angel
Taylor’s star continued to rise after her first audition and, in 2013, she modeled for the Italian clothing brand, Intimissimi. That same year she auditioned for Victoria’s Secret. After her interview, she thought that the company would pass her over because she swore too much.
However, in 2014, she became the youngest model on the Victoria’s Secret rotation at the age of 18. 2014 was a great year for Taylor since she got to model for Rosa Cha alongside Frida Gustavsson, Barbara Palvin, and Erin Heatherton.
In 2015, Taylor became the youngest Victoria’s Secret Angel. It was a massive achievement for the small town Colorado native. She described her experience with Victoria’s Secret on a YouTube video posted by the lingerie giant;
“Victoria’s Secret takes on new girls and, they teach them how to be themselves. Like beautiful, like look at how gorgeous you are and, look at all the things that you can do. They kind of give you a voice to be an influence in the world and be a role model, which is very cool. I think, becoming an Angel is like becoming an official role model for young women.”
Taylor also won the Model of the Year award in social media at the Fashion Media Awards. A year later, she debuted at number 17 on Forbes’ Top-Earning Models list.
Taylor has made multiple appearances on magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Pop Magazine, Glamour, and many more. She has also worked with top fashion designers such as Armani, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Givenchy, Tommy Hilfiger, and many more.
Hill has achieved a lot and she is only 23. The future looks bright for this young supermodel.

Taylor described how it feels to work with her family on an interview with Harper’s Bazaar:
“I love having my siblings in the business. We understand each other and what we do. My older sister is a photographer and I’ve gotten to shoot a few jobs with her and love it. It’s just so much more fun when I get to be with my family. We goof around and joke with each other.”
Logan lives in Los Angeles while the other siblings live in New York. Despite the distance, the siblings always make time to spend with one another.
The siblings also maintain a close relationship with their parents. Their parents often fly out to meet up with their children. Taylor also goes back home to spend time with her family during the holidays.
