Julia Stegner, German Tower of Power

Julia Stegner is a German model born in Munich, Bavaria, on 2 November 1984. Stegner is very familiar to Victoria's Secret fans, having appeared in the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows.

All models are tall, that's one of the reasons they become models. Julia is a full 6 feet (1.83 meters) tall, which even in elite circles sets her apart from some of the other models.

Julia experienced a growth spurt in high school and acquired the nickname of "beanpole," which she doesn't seem to mind. Naturally, being tall, she played some basketball locally. B-ball, however, wasn't her passion.

We'll get to her passion in a moment, but the lovely Julia had a lot of other things going for her. In addition to being tall, Julia also had something else going for her. Namely, she was and is a stunning lady.

So, having the two key ingredients necessary for the modeling world, namely, being tall and being exquisite, Julia caught quite a few eyes at a young age. In the fashion world, people can tell quite early whether you've "got the goods." It's not something that a growing young girl can exactly keep a secret.

So, when she was 14 years old, Julia was spotted by Louisa von Minckwitz of Louisa Models at an Oktoberfest celebration. At least, that's the official story. These things aren't always as straightforward as just being "spotted," but we'll go with it because, who knows, sometimes it might actually be true.

Louisa Models took photos, and clients soon began biting. Julia's first gig was with Tilla Lindig. Finding she liked "the life," Julia quickly moved to Paris. Thus began an enduring tale.

The rest is history, continuing history shall we say. You can't keep charms like that hidden, and Supreme Management signed the lovely Julia in 2003. Stegner opened that fall's Yves Saint Laurent show, not a bad gig for a rookie.

Within a short time, Julia was on the cover of various editions of Vogue (June and July 2003, Italy, and many since) and later Elle (November 2008, France).
