Ali Stephens debuted on the Prada catwalk in September 2007, only two weeks after signing with Elite Model Management. For a newbie, that's not just a good first gig — it's amazing. And she had no idea: "I was just this little girl from Utah, so I didn’t know how big a deal it was. I’m glad I didn’t really know what was going on because had I known, I would have been way too nervous." Aww, so cute! "I do remember after I came off the runway for the first time, I wanted to keep doing it over and over again." And she has, regularly appearing on the New York, London, Milan, and Paris runways ever since. [Modelinia]
