Selita Ebanks may be one of the hottest models around, but she says her chances at Vogue were axed when she met Anna Wintour at age 17 in a questionable teen outfit.

New to the industry, Selita had no idea what to expect when she was called into the Vogue offices to meet with Anna. At the time, she knew nothing about fashion, so she just pulled on her Timberland boots, high-water beige pants and a plaid shirt. And that was the end of it. Selita says:

I remember walking in—Trudy from Vogue at the time...looks at me and she’s like startled. And I didn’t understand why. I was like, 'What up? Who am I here to meet?' She says, 'Take off your jacket, take off your jacket, it’ll be fine, it’ll be fine — be yourself.' And I walk into the office, I got maybe two steps into the room, and I look and it's amazing Ms. Anna Wintour. She goes [makes a dismissive wave] and dismisses me. And my cover did not come out to say the least and I have never shot Vogue magazine!
The happy ending to all of this is Selita learned a valuable lesson. She recommends always doing your homework on who you're meeting, before you walk in the door!
