Samantha Gradoville is an American runway and fashion model. She has appeared in advertisements for brands such as American Eagle, Calvin Klein, and Dolce & Gabbana.
While very little is known of her childhood, what is certain is that Samantha Gradoville was born on January 1, 1990 in Omaha, Nebraska where she grew up. A shy child, her mother enrolled her in modeling classes as a way for her to come out of her shell. Now known best for her appearances in magazines like French and Italian Vogue as well as her underwear campaigns for Calvin Klein and Emporio Armani, there is much more to her career than that.
It all started in 2009 when Samantha signed on with Major Management in Paris. Although she left the agency shortly after signing on, it lead to her not only then signing with the Marilyn Agency, but both the New York and Milan branches of IMG the same year. By 2010, she had cooked her first major print ad shoots with clothing brand American Eagle, and followed this up by opening and closing the fall Prada show in Milan. This provided her the exposure necessary to shoot her career straight to the top.

Since 2010, Samantha has gone on to have an amazing career. Along with walking the runway for some of the world's most recognizable names including Louis Vuitton, Armani Prive and Ralph Lauren, she has also appeared in Vogue magazine three times in 2011 alone in countries Germany, France and Russia. She has gone on to appear in editions for Italy, Mexico and Spain, too. To top that off, she appeared on the cover of Harper's Bazaar twice in 2012 in Romania and Turkey.
In her free time, Samantha enjoys cooking and getting plenty of exercise when she can. Her favorite movies are "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Leon: The Professional" and her favorite music, although admittedly a guilty pleasure, comes form the mouth of none other than Britney Spears.
