We love a good second-life career story—heck, Who What Wear co-founder Hillary Kerr started a whole podcast around the idea—so of course, Abbey Lee’s pivot from model to the actress is one that stands out to us. Here is someone who, at the height of her fashion career, walking some of the biggest runways and starring in major campaigns, stepped away from it all to pursue a career in Hollywood. The fashion world’s loss was certainly the entertainment world’s gain, though, because, without that move, we wouldn’t have Lee’s star power in projects like Mad Max: Fury RoadThe Neon Demon, and HBO’s latest thriller masterpiece Lovecraft Country.
