You Won't Believe These 28 Stars Were Once Abercrombie Models
There are some stars whose old modeling campaigns we just can't get over. They've been pretty much imprinted in our minds, and despite the newer, modern ads fighting to take their place, we love the vintage appeal of photos taken years ago. That's exactly how we feel about all the Abercrombie snapshots in this gallery.
They feature some of our all-time favorite actors and models looking as fresh-faced as ever, sporting the denim, lace camisoles, and breezy blouses we used to rock as kids. And yes, all 28 of the celebrities below doused their covers and campaigns with a hefty dose of hotness — because, really, what's an A&F ad without rock-solid abs or a sultry glare?
On that note, keep reading to reminisce about the days of black-and-white Abercrombie shopping bags and the classic white-tee-and-jeans combination everyone wore so well.
Chris Carmack, 2004
The former O.C. star looks every bit as adorable as he was trying to win Marissa Cooper's heart back, once upon a time.
Christa B. Allen, 2014
The Revenge star was recently tapped for Abercrombie's new The Making of a Star campaign — and we love her flirty shots.
Trevor Donovan, 2003
He was a hunk on the much-loved TV show 90210, he was a hunk in his A&F photos, and he's still a hunk now.
Alexander Ludwig, 2013
Now all we will be able to think about is The Hunger Games star Alexander Ludwig's abs — forever and ever. OK, and that puppy, too.
Channing Tatum, 2001
We'd totally experience heart palpitations if Channing Tatum's old Abercrombie catalogs showed up on our doorstep.
Jennifer Lawrence, 2006
J Law is still everyone's favorite natural beauty, but the simplicity of beach waves and a tank top gets us every time.
Sienna Miller, 2002
Sienna Miller has to be one of our favorite old-time A&F models. She makes baring it all look so easy and effortless — she even once went topless for the brand.
Emma Roberts, 2005
Can you believe Emma Roberts in this Abercrombie ad? The star has matured right before our eyes, and we barely even realized!
Ashton Kutcher, 1998
Oh yes, there's a reason why Ashton Kutcher's old ad is in color, and it's because it totally stands out to us. Swoon.
Hilary Rhoda, 2004
Clearly, becoming a very successful model was in the cards for Hilary Rhoda from a young age.
Halston Sage, 2013
Halston Sage was featured in A&F's Stars on the Rise campaign. Perhaps you recognize the Neighbors star as Zac Efron's recent girl of interest?
Elettra Wiedemann, 2003
We had that lace tank top, and we totally wore it with those khaki shorts. But there's no way we made it look as sexy as Elettra Wiedemann did.
January Jones, 2005
We're dying over January Jones's bangs. She's certainly no Betty Draper here, but that doesn't mean we're not in love with her innocent, effortless A&F style.
Jesse McCartney, 2005
The white on white. The loosened tie. That sweatband.
Karlie Kloss, 2007
Karlie Kloss's Abercrombie Kids ad was adorable, but it was also pretty clear how stylish and mature she'd become.
Jamie Dornan, 2001
The Fifty Shades of Grey star's autumnal ads have us yearning for the perfect Fall day — with Jamie by our side, of course.
Leelee Sobieski, 1999
If there ever was perfectly mussed-up hair . . .
Kellan Lutz, 2004
Kellan Lutz certainly had that model stare down pat.
OK, we'll just go binge-watch Friday Night Lights now, until season two of True Detective gets released.
Lindsay Lohan, 1998
Annie or Hallie? Hallie or Annie? We kid, we kid.
Malin Akerman, 2003
Malin Akerman's topless Abercrombie ads are so vintage and so cool. We just want to pin them up on our wall.
Michelle Trachtenberg, 2004
There's no way we'd be able to manage a pose so graceful.
Olivia Wilde, 2004
We're all about this look on Olivia Wilde. And remember when you tied your pearl necklace like that? We're totally guilty.
Heidi Klum, 2002
This no-makeup look on Heidi Klum is so, so, SO sexy.
Nikki Reed, 2004
Nikki Reed is just what this destroyed motorcycle needed.
Penn Badgley, 2005
Penn Badgley, please only wear white t-shirts forever. We don't even mind the shaggy hair.
Taylor Swift, 2003
Taylor Swift modeled for Abercrombie's Rising Stars campaign with her guitar once upon a country song. And yeah, she totally rose to fame.
