Omaha, Nebraska native Samantha Gradoville made her runway debut opening and closing the Fall 2010 Prada collection in Milan. The following week, she walked exclusively for Miu Miu in Paris, and quickly became one of the most talked about "fresh faces" of the season.

Samantha has been featured in global campaigns for Calvin Klein fragrance and lingerie, photographed by Steven Meisel and Mario Sorrenti, as well as advertising for Lancome, Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Max Mara, Alberta Ferretti, Roberto Cavalli, La Perla, and Topshop.
