Before Tatum broke it big as an actor, he paid the bills as a model. Although, I don't know exactly what he is modeling in the picture on the right -- his pubes?

3. Taylor Swift

Swift appeared in Abercrombie's 2004 "Stars on the Rise" campaign. Which probably made the "# more boyfriends than t.s.," Abercrombie T-shirt controversy that much more awkward for her.

9. Jennifer Lawrence

Carmack has since distanced himself from his Abercrombie modeling days. After the company's CEO Mike Jeffries made comments about excluding plus sizes from its stores, he tweeted "That's a terrible example to set. If I had any of their clothes I'd throw them away."

11. Jamie Dornan

12. Malin Åkerman

Åkerman appeared alongside Dornan in the same 2003 issue. Although, unlike Dornan, she really didn't model anything.
