Martha Hunt is an extremely beautiful blue-eyed model hailing from the United States.
She became world popular after she achieved her goal as a model by becoming the Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2015, at the age of 26.
She was born as Martha Seifert Hunt on April 27, 1989, in a small town of Wilson, near Raleigh, the capital city of North Carolina, one of the states in the US. It is very often that beautiful girls that live in America run into a scout since America is the hotspot of this business. She said that she was very lucky for all of the chances she got in her life, especially this one.
She grew up in a stable home with a family that loved being outdoors. She was in a good relationship with her parents and the rest of the family. This helped her in life because she never had to worry about a single thing other than creating her own life and her career.
Martha’s career began when she was still a teenage girl after she was discovered in Charlotte, one of North Carolina’s most populous city. The chances of her running up into someone that was going to push her into the business were quite high and the whole family knew that, said the mother.
She was noticed by an experienced photographer who recognized her beauty. She was very soon taken to New York where she met with people from several different model agencies. She had a choice and wanted to get the best deal possible.
After receiving a good offer she had relocated to the big city and after a little while, she signed a contract with IMG Models.
She decided that it was a good option to go with them because they treated her as a person, not as a model.
This agency is one of the biggest modeling agencies with branch offices all over the world, from Milan to London and Paris. She was guaranteed to make a successful career.

Her big breakthrough came in 2009 when she appeared on the covers of many women magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ.

She was also hired for ads for several fashion designer lines like for Yohji Yamamoto’s Y3 and Hugo Boss. She says that ads are very fun because she gets to show off her acting skills as well. However, she struggled with long lines and therefore could never be in a movie.
In 2012 she was chosen by IMG Models to be their next model and it was a huge success for her because a lot of women dreamt about becoming their models.
This agency gave her a chance to work at the most prestigious fashion events and had highly skilled beauty experts to help her improve herself to perfection.
In 2012 she appeared on the cover of a French-based lifestyle magazine which confirmed her celebrity status. The magazine is named „Elle” and by getting to its covers she became recognized as a star model.

In 2014 she continued working with the biggest names in the world of fashion, such as Herve Leger and Ralph Lauren. She was very honored to do so, but she also knew hew worth at this point so she decided to keep working only for the companies that seemed to care about her.

Martha had a few appearances on TV through her modeling career.
In 2014, she had played the role of herself in a TV sitcom aired on CBS called „2 Broke Girls”. She said that she often got offers for roles of “stupid girls” and, because of this, she was very offended. Martha understood the prejudices people have but still didn’t want to play that character.
The second TV appearance in a series was in 2019 where she again played herself in a game show called „Celebrity Family Feud”.
She appeared in three different music videos too: „Bad Blood” performed by Taylor Swift, „Hands to Myself” by Selena Gomez and the most recent was in 2017 when she appeared in a music video for the single „Paris”, performed by the Chainsmokers.
Her first appearance in a movie was in 2007 where she had a very small role in a British drama titled „Cregan”. She said that she always had to work on her lines a lot because she was not used to so much memory-testing.
As for her personal life, she didn’t have a very long list of boyfriends. This is something not every model can brag about, and she is very proud to say that she is one of the few.
