Shalom Harlow is a model who has been active since she left high school.
The Canadian-born-and raised Ms. Harlow was discovered at a Toronto performance of the Cure, one of those bands you might associate with the sort of alternative values that don't go with haute couture. :-D But that didn't matter, as Ms. Harlow turned out to have the perfect look. :-)
How perfect? Well, she's modeled for Jones New York, Tiffany, Nautica, and Chloé, among others, and she co-hosted MTV's "House of Style" with another high-profile model, Amber Valletta.
She's also gotten into acting, having appeared in movies such as Vanilla Sky, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and Melinda and Melinda.
