Sims began modeling later than many top models, at the age of 19. She matriculated at Vanderbilt University in 1993 to study political science and communication. As part of her studies, she served as an intern for the Republican National Convention. During this time, Molly also held a waitressing job. A friend suggested that Sims try out modeling, so she got some test shots done with a local photographer.
The photographer sent the photos to some New York agencies. One of them, Next, liked the shots and signed Sims. That's all it took to leave her college and waitressing days behind her.
Molly's career developed gradually. Unlike some models who instantly appear in all the top magazines, Sims slowly built a top reputation representing brands such as Old Navy ("You gotta get this look!").
By 2000, Molly was at the top of the modeling world. That year, she first appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Sims followed that up with appearances in the 2001, 2002, 2004, and 2006 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues. In her final appearance, in 2006, Molly wore a special Susan Rosen diamond-encrusted bra worth $30 million. Molly also walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2001, her only appearance.
Around that time, Molly branched out into acting. Her first notable appearance was as host of "MTV House of Style" in 2000. Sims followed that up with a "Twilight Zone" appearance. Molly in 2003 then snagged her most famous role and the one for which she is most remembered, as Delinda Deline on "Las Vegas." The role lasted until 2008.
Since then, Molly Sims has racked up numerous television and film credits. These include "Saturday Night Live" (2008), "The Pink Panther 2" (2009), "The Rachel Zoe Project" (20101), and "Barely Famous" (2015).
