  1. She has appeared on over 300 magazine covers.

    Seymour started her modeling career working for local newspapers and department stores in her hometown at the age of 14. A year later she won the Elite Model Management Look of the Year modeling contest.

    In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Seymour appeared in numerous issues of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, and appeared on the cover of Vogue. During the same period, Seymour was a primary lingerie and hosiery model for the relatively new Victoria's Secret company in its mail-order catalogs and retail stores. In 1991 and again in 1994, Seymour posed for Playboy.

    In 1998, she wrote Stephanie Seymour's Beauty Secrets for Dummies.

    In 2006, she appeared in a campaign for Gap with her children.

    In 2000, Seymour played Helen Frankenthaler in the movie Pollock. In 2002 she played the role of Sara Lindstrom in the "Crazy" episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

    At the age of 16, she began dating John Casablancas, the head of Elite Model Management, who was, at the time, married to model Jeanette Christjansen. The couple lived together before Seymour broke off the relationship.

    From 1989 to 1990 she was married to guitarist Tommy Andrews. The marriage failed, but resulted in the birth of her first son, Dylan Thomas Andrews in 1991.

    In 1991, she dated actor Warren Beatty. After her relationship with Beatty, she was involved with Axl Rose, the lead singer of Guns N' Roses. She appeared in two music videos by Guns N' Roses: "Don't Cry" and "November Rain". The couple broke up in February 1993 after Rose accused Seymour of being unfaithful. In August 1994, Rose sued Seymour for assaulting him during a 1992 Christmas party, mental and emotion abuse, and for withholding $100,000 worth of jewelry. Rose claimed he and Seymour were engaged. In turn, Seymour countersued Rose for assaulting her and denied they were ever engaged.

    Shortly after her break up with Rose, Seymour began dating Peter Brant, a married publisher and real estate developer. Seymour became pregnant shortly after they began dating and gave birth to the couple's first son (her second) Peter Jr. in January 1994. Seymour and Brant married in 1995 in France. Seymour gave birth to their second son Harry in 1997 and to their third child, a daughter Lilly Margaret, in 2004.
