Wilson, North Carolina native Martha Hunt was discovered at a model search in nearby Charlotte. Her big break arrived swiftly during the Spring 2013 collections season after she walked in runway shows for Dolce and Gabbana, Prada, and Tom Ford. Inez & Vinoodh photographed Hunt for a series of Miu Miu campaigns after she appeared in the Italian design company's show in Paris, and again for an issue of V Magazine.
Perhaps best known as a Victoria's Secret Angel, Hunt has appeared in the company's annual runway show, as well as countless print and television advertisements for the intimate apparel behemoth. Hunt has also fronted campaigns for Hugo Boss, Y3, Max & Co., and Albion Cosmetics, photographed by Glen Luchford, Alasdair McLellan, Josh Ollins, and Mario Testino, respectively.
Hunt has graced the covers of the international editions of L’Officiel, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar, and appeared in editorial features for the aforementioned, styled by Carine Roitfeld, among others. She has also appeared in Glamour, photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth.
Off-duty, Hunt is an avid supporter of Duke’s Children’s Hospital. She also enjoys listening to music, practicing yoga, and spending time with her pet dog named Bear. Hunt is a budding writer, though she admits to thinking that ‘y’all’ was a real contraction.
