American model and actress Stephanie Seymour is perhaps most recognized for her long term association with Victoria's Secret. She has also appeared in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues, Playboy, Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Self and has worked with many noted designers and photographers, including Mario Testino, Herb Ritts, Richard Avedon and Gilles Bensimon.

Seymour started dating John Casablancas, the head of Elite Model Management, when she was 16 years old. At the time, Casablancas was still married to model Jeanette Christjansen. The couple lived together until Seymour broke off the relationship. Following a short lived marriage to Tommy Andrews during 1989-1990, Seymour began a new relationship with singer Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses in the mid 1991. She appeared in the band's music videos for “Don't Cry” and “November Rain.” They split up in February 1993 after Rose accused Seymour of being unfaithful. Six months later, Rose sued her for assaulting him during a 1992 Christmas party, for mental and emotional abuse, and for withholding $100,000 worth of jewelry. He also claimed that they were engaged. Successively, Seymour countersued Rose for assaulting her and denied they were ever engaged. Following her break up with Rose, Seymour initiated an affair with affluent industrialist, businessman and entrepreneur Peter Brant, who was married and the father of five children. They married in July 1995. Seymour and Brant have three children (two sons and a daughter). She also has an older son with former husband Tommy Andrews.
