One of the world's preeminent and most sought-after glamour models, Briton Katie Price began posing for photo shoots and strutting down catwalks at the age of 16 and soon found herself in insatiable demand by agencies, fashion designers, and photographers; she also attained fabulous wealth during adolescence, almost overnight. A media darling and an object of tabloid scrutiny, Price (as she acknowledged on her website) soon cultivated two distinct personas: Jordan (which she used for modeling work) and Katie Price, which referred to her personal life as a wife and a mother. Throughout her career, Price became known for espousing assertive, highly vocal, and often controversial opinions to the media.
