Born: 25 September 1969
Best known as:
Victoria's Secret model of the 1990s
Model Heather Stewart-Whyte was a top model in the late 1980s and early 1990s, known for high cheekbones that gave her an especially British look. That -- and a long, shapely body -- made her a cinch for the Victoria's Secret catalog, where she frequently appeared in the 1990s. The same attributes made her the face of several fashion and cosmetic companies and a pinup favorite on the Internet. In 1995 she married French tennis star Yannick Noah (now a reggae/rock performer) and had two children. The couple divorced in 1999 and little has been heard from Stewart-Whyte since on the fashion front. Instead, there was a bizarre 2004 incident in which her family reported her missing or kidnapped (after ten days officials found her "alive and well" with friends in northern France) and a brief mention of her connection -- half-sister -- to Donald Douglas Stewart-Whyte, arrested in 2006 in connection to a terrorist bombing plot.
Heather Stewart-Whyte was formerly married to tennis star Yannick Noah; the two were divorced in 1999.
