It's Thursday, February 6, 2014 and New York Fashion Week is officially upon us. The city's swarming with models, trooping through the sludge in their off-duty finest, rushing to get to the next show. Of course, the models with the exclusives probably have a cushier experience involving things like cars and escorts and heated mittens, but there was a time when women like Gisele, Miranda, Chanel, and Karlie had to pay their dues and rough it with the other up-and-comers. In real #TBT tradition, we present a throwback to a time before they were famous. Polaroids from when Angels were just girls on go-sees. When a Vogue cover girl was just a teenager from Florida. When the young ladies above looked up to Kate, Naomi, and Cindy like this fashion weeks’ burgeoning stars look up to them. Happy TBT, everyone, and a very happy NYFW. Leave your prediction as to which model Alexander Wang will bring out of NYFW retirement below...

    so beautiful - and kind of tender in a way, young and fresh-faced sans heavy makeup. the ones of them posing in bikinis have an element of creepy voyeurism to them, perhaps enhance by the fact that they're polaroids? but still really captivating

  • Bárbara Paula Acosta Pérez

    Candice looks like Mila Kunis!

  • Clever Girl Reviews

  • Leanne Webber

    Funny how more than half of these are all VS models! I'm not complaining, I think they have some of the best bodies in the business. <3

    I always thought Candice looked similar to Mila Kunis they look like twins in the Polaroids. Emily Didonato is such a stunner.

  • Adrienne Angelos

    Gawd, could Giselle be any more beautiful?

  • Neelam

    Daphne is simply gawj

  • Cristina

    That's definitely not Adriana before she was famous. Those are fairly recent photos.
