Model Beginnings: Shields started modeling fresh out of the oven, landing an Ivory Soap campaign at 11 months old. At 14 she became the youngest ever cover model for Vogue, and then of course came that infamous Calvin Klein campaign.
Big Acting Break: Her first role was a child prostitute in Pretty Baby, filmed when she was just 11 years old. But it’s her role as Emmeline in the steamy film Blue Lagoon that Shields is best known for, filmed when she was 14 years old. Shields’ acting career started out with a great deal of fuss and controversy, but now most of her roles are playing warm, mom-esque roles on television shows like Hannah Montana.
The Verdict: Shields is still working (remember Lipstick Jungle?) so we say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
