Where is Ex-Victoria’s Secret Model Stephanie Seymour Today? – Several of Victoria’s Secret’s former models are finding themselves back in the spotlight thanks to Hulu documentary “Victoria’s Secret: Angels and Demons,” which explores the twisted underbelly of the well-known lingerie company. In the late 1980s and 1990s, Stephanie Seymour grabbed the modeling world by storm, gracing multiple covers of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue & big fashion publications such as Vogue and Cosmopolitan. She furthered her renown for her love life by adding Victoria’s Secret Angel to her resume.
Seymour has tried in acting, portraying Helen Frankenthaler in the Jackson Pollock movie Pollock from 2000 and a Law and Order: Criminal Intent episode. Currently, Seymour is a wife and mother who also acts as the spokesperson for Raven & Sparrow, the lingerie line she launched in 2017.
At the age of 15, she finished second in a modelling competition, which launched her career. Seymour, who was born in San Diego, California, started modelling when she was a young adult. She received her big break when she was selected as a finalist in the inaugural year of the 1983 Look of the Year modeling competition, now known as Elite Model Look. Soon after, her modeling career took off, and in addition to walking the runway for Victoria’s Secret, she also walked for several other top luxury labels, like Chanel, Versace, and Louis Vuitton, to mention a few.
Seymour, along with Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, and Claudia Schiffer, was one of the first supermodels and is credited as being Azzedine Alaa’s inspiration. Alaa is renowned as the “King of Cling” and is considered a master of couture. In addition, at the height of her success in 1994, Seymour was named one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People in the World.”
Supermodels gained notoriety in the 1990s, before the virtual era we currently live in, without the aid of social media. In response to a query about more contemporary high-profile models like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, Seymour told Vanity Fair in 2016, “They are entirely apart from who we were. Supermodels are a thing of the past. They ought to have their own names. Beautiful females [Jenner and Hadid] deserve their own title, and I support them all.”
Over the years, Seymour has had her fair share of romantic interests. She started dating John Casablancas, the head of Elite Model Management, when she was 16 years old. He was already married and 26 years older than her. After that union broke up, Seymour married and later divorced guitarist Tommy Andrews. Dylan Thomas Andrews TK was Tommy and Her First Child.
The rock band Guns N’ Roses’ main singer, Axl Rose, and Seymour started dating in 1991. Seymour played Rose’s love interest in the music videos for the songs “Don’t Cry” and “November Rain” while they were dating. After their highly publicized, the turbulent relationship came to an end in February 1993, Rose sued Seymour, alleging that she had abused him and taken jewels worth $100,000. The lawsuits were ultimately settled after Seymour countersued, alleging physical abuse.
Seymour finally found love with real estate entrepreneur, author, and art collector Peter Brant after leaving her rock star days behind. Brant’s relationship with Seymour continued even though he was already married and the father of five children; on December 30, 1993, she gave birth to the couple’s first child, Peter Brant II. Seymour and Brant remarried in 1995, had a son named Henry Joseph in 1996, and a daughter named Lily Margaret in 2004, after Brant filed for divorce.
Seymour filed for divorce in March 2009, and the process was everything but picture-perfect. According to The New York Times, Brant alleged Seymour cheated and misused drugs and alcohol, while Seymour accused him of being overbearing. The couple’s relationship appeared to be over, but everyone was amazed when they were able to work things out and are still together today in 2010. Therefore, let’s find out precisely what Stephanie Seymour, author of “Stephanie Seymour’s Beauty Secrets for Dummies” (1998), has been doing these days.
Where is Stephanie Seymour Today?
Steph returned to the fashion industry by creating her own lingerie brand, Raven & Sparrow, just a few years after being designated a worldwide spokesmodel for cosmetics company Estée Lauder (2014). The co-founder, therefore, continues to represent this brand actively, reportedly also engaging in certain charitable activities through the Brandt Foundation Art Study Center. Her husband, Peter Brant, a real estate developer, magazine publisher, movie producer, art collector, and the father of three of her four children overall, founded the latter.
Harry Brant, a socialite model who was 24 years old, tragically lost his life on January 17, 2021, from an accidental drug overdose caused by prescription medication. The former Victoria’s Secret model, who actually chooses to keep a low profile most of the time, has just spoken up about this devastating loss in a public statement as well as on her Instagram profile.
The latter occurred on Harry’s first death anniversary a few months back, which Stephanie honoured by sharing a tragic yet precious tribute, with Donna Ashworth’s poem ‘I Missed You Today’ in the caption.
After all, the well-known person from New York/Connecticut had previously revealed her actual thoughts for her son in the family statement a year earlier, which included the following: “We will forever be saddened that his life was cut short by this dreadful disease [addiction]… Harry was not merely our son. He was also a great uncle, a kind grandchild, a loving brother, and a thoughtful friend. He was a creative, compassionate, and powerful soul who infused light into so many people’s lives. He was definitely a wonderful person inside and out.”
