Before being a model

Erin Heather Bubley was born in 1989, into a large family with three siblings. She attended two schools, Solomon Schechter Day School, a Jewish day school, and Niles North High School, but wasn’t popular in either of them. During one of the multiple interviews she said she had always felt too tall and a little awkward among her peers. She also mentioned: “I never thought I was cute, ever. I never had boyfriends or anything like that.”

At school Erin Heatherton was fond of basketball. But when she became a full-time model she had to forget about her favorite sport.

Modeling Career

Erin Heatherton was discovered when she and her family were vacationing on South Beach, Miami. The scout was so fascinated with the girl than immediately offered her to visit Marilyn Agency. Erin didn’t think long and took the opportunity. In the result she soon had a modeling contract with one of the best agencies. She remembers that she was “freaked out” in the beginning of her career because the new world was so different from the one she used to live in. However, she was able to adapt to it rather quickly.

Erin Heatherton’s breakthrough was walking Diane Von Furstenberg Spring show in 2006. The same month she appeared in Michael by Michael Kors ad campaign and covered Flair Italy. In December she appeared in Mixte editorial as well.

The year of 2007 was very busy for Erin Heatherton. Already in February she walked the runway for Lacoste, Michael Kors, and Christian Lacroix in New York and Paris. In March and April she did Interview (alongside Chanel Iman) and British Elle editorials. In July she graced the cover of Italian i-D and was among the beauties showcasing the fall Valentino couture collection in Paris. She also did campaigns for D&G, Diesel and Valentino couture. To add to this, she was named one of the best new girls of the season by Elle.com as well as one of the season’s up-and-comers by WWD. In September she opened the spring L.A.M.B. show in New York and walked for Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Dolce & Gabbana, and Moschino. To finish the year Erin appeared in Italian Vogue beauty editorial photographed by Greg Kadel.

In 2008, Erin Heatherton modeled for Karl Lagerfeld eyewear and Versace Jeans Couture spring ad campaign alongside Denisa Dvorakova. She did a number of fashion magazines, including Numéro, Italian Vogue, Interview and V, Italian Marie Claire, British Harper’s Bazaar, and covered MUSE and Velvet. Runway modeling took most of her time though. She walked the spring Christian Lacroix, Elie Saab, and Valentino couture shows in Paris, opened the fall Carmen Marc Valvo show in New York, walked for Carolina Herrera, Derek Lam, D&G, and Etro, closed the resort Carolina Herrera show in New York, walked for Prada and Stella McCartney, Anne Valérie Hash, Christian Lacroix, and Elie Saab couture, the spring Diane von Furstenberg, Isaac Mizrahi, Michael Kors, Moschino, and Christian Lacroix shows in New York, Milan, and Paris. And in November she walked the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the first time.

In 2009, Erin appeared in French Revue des Modes, Vogue Korea, Glamour Italia and GQ magazines. She was also photographed for the French Vogue calendar. In winter she walked the runway for Armani Privé and Christian Lacroix couture show in Paris and closed the fall Dennis Basso show in New York. Besides, the Illinois beauty signed fragrance contract with Valentino Rock ‘n Dreams, Liu-Jo Jeans, Giorgio Armani and Lacoste. And in November she walked the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show again.

In 2010, Heatherton covered Russh magazine and appeared in editorials of Flaunt, Marie Claire Italy and Lula glossies. She also did Victoria’s Secret, Next Spring and Blugirl advertising. Her runway job included: Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Monarchy Collection, Badgley Mischka, and Dolce & Gabbana. At the end of the year the model walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

In 2011, Erin Heatherton became an official Victoria’s Secret Angel. She did a few ad campaigns for the brand, including the one for New Year and St. Valentine’s Day. She didn’t miss other modeling gigs though. She appeared in editorials for Harper’s Bazaar Spain, British GQ, British Elle and V Magazine, and graced the cover of Elle Serbia posing topless. She also landed John Galliano Lingerie & Beachwear, H&M and Desigual campaigns.
