At age 17, she graced the cover of the February 2001 edition of Vogue, becoming one of the youngest models ever to appear on the magazine’s cover.

Her most memorable walk was in the 2006 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show where she once again showcased the multi-million dollar bra worth $6.5 million, decked with almost 2000 diamonds weighing 800 carats, and a centerpiece diamond brooch weighing 10 carats wearing frosted wings.

Honestly folks, I had a lot more to say because I don't/didn't want this blog to end.
But for some strange reason.....
My mind is drawing a complete blank.
Could it be that I have short-circuited?
Blown a fuse or something?
With all the sparks flying in/around here,
That has got to be the most likely explanation! I mean, it's been an entire 4 days so far of ultra wattage and the week's not done yet!
Talk about a Blond Bombshell!!! Blonds do damn well have fun too! Don't you think?
Yes, I know.. I know... I posted a similar one to this before, but I just couldn't help myself.
