shalom harlow Background
Shalom Harlow was born December 5, 1973 in Oshawa, Ontario, outside of Toronto. The daughter of hippie parents David Harlow and Sandi Herbert, Shalom was raised in a bohemian environment; a far cry from the supermodel lifestyle she is accustomed to today.
Instead of the D&G and Versace threads she wears today while strutting down the catwalk, Shalom wore sweaters that her mother knitted as a child, and it's this wholesome upbringing that she reverts to when she's not working. As a pastime, Shalom took jazz, ballet and tap-dancing, and aspired to be an astronaut as a child.

Shalom was discovered at a Cure concert in Toronto by talent agent, Anne Sutherland. She immediately began taking dance and modeling classes. Her first photo shoot was in Montreal for Elle's Quebec edition.
After working for some time in the Canadian modeling industry, Shalom headed to Paris to accelerate her career. It was clear that Shalom had what it takes to be a model -- she officially became what is commonly referred to as "the new breed of supermodels."

In 1995 she won VH1's Model of the Year award. In New York City, where she presently resides (in the East Village), she became the co-host of MTV's House of Style with friend and model, Amber Valletta, after Cindy Crawford quit the show. The show ran for one more year, from 1996-1997.
After House of Style folded, Shalom went back to modeling clothing for designers such as Donna Karan, John Galliano, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Isaac Mizrahi, Versace, Jil Sander, Dolce & Gabbana, Max Mara, and Christian Dior. She also became the face of Chanel's Coco perfume.
Shalom, which means "Peace," "Hello" and "Goodbye" in Hebrew, has a Nars lip-gloss named after her.

In addition to being one of today's top supermodels (in 2000, her net worth stood at $10.5 million), Shalom has also begun a career in film. After an appearance in Isaac Mizrahi's fashion documentary, Unzipped, Shalom had a small but memorable role in the 1997 comedy, In & Out.
In 1999, Shalom starred in the film Cherry. In 2001 she starred with Monica Potter and Freddy Prinze Jr. in the 2001 romantic comedy, Head Over Heels. She has also had small parts in the Tom Cruise/Penelope Cruz vehicle Vanilla Sky, the Val Kilmer movie, The Salton Sea, the Kate Hudson film, How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days and more.
