Whitney Houston Teen Model Photos
Taking a look back at Whitney's life, you may not have known but Whitney started out as a model. Her thin frame, good looks, and pretty smile made for a great model. You would never think that her ending would be so tragic when you look at these photos. Above, Whitney models in a pink/white ensemble splashing around in sparkling water.
A fashion editor who worked with Whitney, at the time of her modeling career, took the time out to talk about working with Whitney during her modeling days:
Anytime we were booking models for a photo shoot, we would always say, "Let's book Whitney," "See if Whitney is available," "Whitney would be great for this story". She continued, "She was nevr a diva and she was always professional.' 'She showed up on time and made our jobs easier by doing her best in front of the camera.' 'She never complained if days rans long and cheerfully did whatever was expected."
Whitney ended up getting the cover for Seventeen Magazine. She was not the first black model to grace the cover, but at this time, it still wasn't common to see African-American models on the cover. The singer would two years later go on to release her first album with Arista Records in 1985. Her self-titled debut went on to sell 25 million copies.
From then on she went on to have a successful career winning numerous awards. She married Bobby Brown and this is when the tides for a career took a turn for the worst. There were rumors of heavy drug use, erratic behavior and abuse from Bobby Brown.
After her death, Radaronline is reporting that Bobby Brown is trying to shop a tell-all book about the singer's life. They are also reporting that the singer may have died from a mixture of Valium, Xanax, and alcohol. May she rest in peace.
