The world’s richest model, Gisele Bundchen, started out being hated by the industry. Now on her way to becoming a billionaire, famed photographer Mario Testino claims that Gisele was initially turned down by the industry.

“Nobody liked her, nobody wanted her,”Testino told UK’s The Guardian. “I had to fight to get her into my stories because nobody thought she was right – too this, too that, the nose, the breasts, the waist. But I believe in being obsessed, in getting obsessed.”

Testino’s persistence in photographing Gisele is credited for turning her from your average no-name model to the supermodel she is today.
