  1. Though her mother named her Shalom, meaning "peace" in Hebrew, her family is not Jewish. She was discovered at a Cure concert in Toronto and started modeling straight out of high school.

    She has appeared in movies and co-hosted MTV's House of Style with friend and fellow supermodel Amber Valletta.

    She is most famous for her appearance in Alexander McQueen's Spring-Summer 1999 collection. Standing on a rotating platform, she was flanked by two robotic arms that spray-painted her dress, leaving the crowd and international fashion press shocked and mesmerized.

    In 2007, well into her thirties, she modeled for Jones New York, Tumi, Tiffany & Co, Nautica, and Chloé. The following year, she appeared in the Valentino Spring/Summer 2008 campaign.

    Most recently she featured as the only model in a digital catwalk for Viktor & Rolfs Spring/Summer 2009 show.
