    At age 20, Cara Delevingne is one of the most famous models in the world. Not only is she a household name for her catwalk prowess but her scandalous ways, which include frequently partying with Rihanna, a relationship with Rita Ora that has been rumored to be romantic, and a cocaine scandal. Chances are, she's just getting started.

  • Kate Moss Appointed As The New Face And Body Of St.Tropez

    Kate Moss is the queen of the scandalous models. From a serious cocaine scandal that set her career back a few years to her insane, drug-fueled relationship with rocker Pete Doherty, Moss is always in the press. But these days, thanks to her hubby Jamie Hince and fully revived career, she's toned down a bit. That still doesn't mean she isn't photographed leaving clubs at 5 a.m.

    Naomi Campbell has had a rough go of it in the press over the years. Her well-publicized anger management issues (which include numerous cell phone throwing incidents) resulted in numerous lawsuits, and even a lifetime ban from British Airways. Throughout all this, she's never lost her place at the top. These days, she's allegedly out to destroy former protege Luo Zilin's career, as she's currently dating Campbell's ex Vladimir Doronin

    Kate Upton may have silenced some haters when she scored a Vogue cover earlier this year, but the super sexy all American model will always be known for her curvy figure and the infamous "Cat Daddy" dance.

    40-year-old model Heidi Klum is a serious mogul these days thanks to her show "Project Runway" and numerous endorsement deals. However, she's certainly had her series of scandal. After divorcing celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino, she started dating Anthony Kiedis, notorious bad boy and frontman of Red Hot Chili Peppers. She then began dating Formula One billionaire Flavio Briatore. While pregnant with his child, she began a relationship with Seal. She then married Seal but divorced him in April 2012. She then began dating her bodyguard towards the end of their divorce. Nowadays, she likes taking topless selfies

    Luo Zilin definitely wins a spot on this list. After being mentored by Naomi Campbell on Oxygen reality show "The Face," Zilin backstabbed Campbell by shacking up with her ex, billionaire Russian Vladimir Doronin.  They're still hobnobbing around the world on his luxury yacht, but she's been dropped from her modeling agency. We're incredibly curious to see if this scandalous stunner works in this industry ever again.

    Stephanie Seymour is one of the original supermodels, and at 45-years-old she's more gorgeous than ever. But that doesn't mean she hasn't had her fair share of scandal along the way. She dated the late John Casablancas when she was 16 and he was married, and then later went on to date Axl Rose, Guns N' Roses frontman. Their dramatic relationship was heavily covered by the press. These days, she's a doting mother and social fixture—but we bet she still has some of that wild rocker streak somewhere inside her!

    Linda Evangelista defines supermodel glamour. The 48-year-old supermodel was once quoted as saying, "We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day," which became a controversial phrase used to describe the high-fashion modeling industry. She has consistently worked over the years, but found herself at the center of a scandal when she revealed in 2011 that the father of her baby boy (born in 2006) was Francois-Henri Pinault, the billionaire fashion executive who had just recently fathered a daughter with wife Salma Hayek. A huge child support battle ensued, and Evangelista showed up to court looking beyond chic everyday clad in Louboutins and Chanel

  • Victoria's Secret 2012 Fashion Show Runway - Show

    Karlie Kloss made headlines last year when Victoria's Secret immediately pulled a Native American-themed outfit that she wore during their annual fashion show due to many complaints that it was racially insensitive. This wasn't the first time that the it-model was the subject of scrutiny. Back in late 2011, Vogue Italia pulled images of Kloss that readers felt made her look anorexic. Her thin body has been the subject of scrutiny on the Internet, but we maintain that she's one of the most important models of her generation.

    Anne Vyalitsyna (more commonly known as Anne V) first shot to serious fame while dating Maroon 5 frontman and famed modelizer Adam Levine. After a sexy Vogue spread where they both appeared nude, she reportedly blindsided him by dumping him. Levine was devastated, and she was onto the next. She's since been linked to many famous men from Calvin Harris to New York Mets player Matt Harvey

The fashion industry is without a doubt insanely glamorous. Of course, a lot of work goes into the business—it’s not all champagne and couture, though there’s certainly plenty of that. And with the excess and overall chicness associated with fashion, there’s bound to be scandal, and some of the industry’s most scandalous figures are undoubtedly models.

These days, models have morphed into full-fledged celebrities. We don’t only care about what they look like when they strut down the catwalk. We care about their personal lives, who they’re dating, and what they’re doing when they’re not in the spotlight. Along the way, models have made headlines for questionable behavior, from Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne dealing with cocaine scandals to Heidi Klum‘s newfound love of topless Instagram photos.

So, in honor of the salacious stunners who inspire us to dress better but also seriously leave us shocked sometimes, we’ve composed a list of the 10 most scandalous models.

Click through the slideshow above and let us know—which model shocked you the most?
