Bridget Hall was born December 12,
1977, in Springdale, Arkansas; she was later raised in Dallas, Texas.
After moving to Dallas at the age of four with her brother Josh and her
mother, she became enamored with the idea of modeling at a very early age.
She signed her first modeling contract at the age of nine with a company
called The Kim Dawson Agency in Dallas. She dropped out of school at the
age of fifteen to pursue modeling full-time. Bridget continued her pursuit
of modeling stardom over the next few years. In 1992, the Hazel-eyed
blonde signed with the Ford Modeling Agency, which helped catapult her to
the top of her domain. In fact, she was listed in Forbes magazine as one
of the top ten best-paid supermodels in the world. Later she was kicked
out of Ford Models President Eileen Ford's home for her excessively wild
behavior. She has graced the cover of every major fashion magazine in the
world; she has worked for many big companies such as IMG, Why Not and
Ford. Her recent advertising work includes ads for Gucci, Ralph Lauren,
Versace Couture, Valentino, Pepsi and Maybelline. She also did widely
recognized work for Guess, Bill Blass, Patek Phillipe watches, Polo Sport
and Christian Dior.
She has become one of the most favored cover girls in the industry, mostly
due to her striking lips, natural beauty and athletic yet feminine style.
She has graced the covers of Allure US, Elle Italia three times in 1996,
Elle US, Esquire Marie Claire and Glamour. In 1997, she did covers for
Allure, Flare Canada, Glamour and Zest UK. 1998 was her busiest year

between New York and Dallas, she has to juggle her schedule to find time
for some of her favorite hobbies, which include playing pool, jet skiing
and swimming. She is also an expert snowboarder, and spends a considerable
amount of time in Vermont and Telluride, where she prefers to snowboard. A
big fan of rap music, Bridget also enjoys reading, drawing and playing

modeling career, and she would also like to try her hand at acting.
