  1. She was brought up in a military family.

    "I never wanted to be a model—I was a basketball player"

    She started college at 15 and originally thought of a career as a veterinarian, but a chance occurrence changed her course: she took a friend to a local scouting event and found herself exciting the interest of the scouts instead.

    Moore's big break came when she shot a cowgirl story for Amica by Patrick Demarchelier.

    As one of a very small number of openly gay fashion models, Moore has occasionally attracted the attention of the sensationalist press. She has been cited as a de facto lesbian style icon for the same reason.
