Amanda Moore (born in Idaho on September 10, 1979) is an American model.

Early life[edit]

Brought up in a military family, Moore grew up in many different parts of the world, alongside her father and older brother. She attended high school in DeFuniak Springs, Florida.

"I never wanted to be a model—I was a basketball player", Moore told Tim Blanks in a 2003 interview for Fashion File. She started college at 15 and originally thought of a career as a veterinarian, but a chance occurrence changed her course: she took a friend to a local scouting event and found herself exciting the interest of the scouts instead. They convinced her to attend a larger event in Orlando, where, Models.com reported in its December 2000 profile of Moore, "that face, when it walked into the room...made jaws, pencils, and all reserve simply drop. Agencies by the dozen clamored to sign her." Moore initially signed with NEXT Model Management. She is represented today by IMG Models.

Accomplishments[edit]

Moore has worked with photographers such as Steven Meisel, Bruce Weber, Steven Klein, Nathaniel Goldberg, Nicolas Moore, Michael Sanders, Regan Cameron, Robert Wyatt, Hans Fourer, Terry Richardson, and Peter Lindbergh.
