Gerren Taylor & Her Modelling Career!
At age 12, Gerren Taylor had it all as she walked the runway for the first time at the Los Angeles Fashion Week in 2003. she went from being a school girl studying pre-algebra to becoming one of the world’s youngest Supermodels the industry had ever seen. She was everything the modelling and fashion industry desired, tall, thin, and photogenic.
Taylor started her modelling career at the age of 12 and appeared on shows like Oprah, Entertainment Tonight.
Unfortunately, her hope of becoming a star model dwindled down at 14 after the industry called her obese and said she was size four.
In an interview, Taylor said the rejection she got from the industry really depressed her as she developed an eating disorder.
“At first, I was like, Whatever! So I went to Paris and London to see if maybe I could model there. And they said, ‘No, you have to be a size 0, or negative.’ I didn’t even know negative existed. After that, I came back to the States and I was really depressed. I developed an eating disorder and wasn’t eating. It was really hard for me and I thought I was ugly.”; she said.
