We all know Abercrombie and Fitch for creating and designing clothes that are perfect for the ultimate American youth. More than this, Abercrombie is also known for making their clothes come to life in their ads with the help from some of the most gorgeous and hottest women and men in the planet.

1. Michelle Trachtenberg
Fresh off her three-year stint as Buffy’s annoying little sister on Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Even if she was just a teenager, Michelle is already hot hot hot! For sure, Abercrombie made tons of money out of her ads but Michelle has no complaints as she was able earn a lot of money too after she posed for them. She became one of the most promising actresses after this shoot!
2. Olivia Wilde
Looking pretty much exactly the same as she does now. Some people just DON’T age.
You may see Olivia Wilde in various movies and in the big screen right now but she started out humble enough– as an Abercrombie model! The company really made a great choice when they let Oliviia model their clothes. Despite her young age, he did justice to the brand! Now, she is one of the hottest actresses in the industry.
3. Kellan Lutz
One of his very first gigs is being an Abercrombie model. After all, it looks like his body is designed for this ad. His body is so muscular that his ripped body shows off from his clothes in the Abercrombie ad. Many girls have surely swoon over this ad and many men wanted to be like him. The company have made the best choice for this one.

4. Channing Tatum
In 2001 — pre-acting, but post stripping.
What is it with Abercrombie that they were able to find celebrities who are born to be popular? Even when he was still young, it looks like Channing Tatum is the kind of man that ladies would surely drool over, especially when he is just wearing plain white briefs! Their PR and marketing team should be paid extra well for getting Tatum to pose for them!
5. Taylor Swift
Today, Taylor Swift is one of the hottes and most adored singers in the music industry. Well, the people at Abercrombie have seen something in her 10 years ago. In fact, they even let her hold the guitar in the shoot! What is it with the Abercrombie team that they know who are the right people to get? Just amazing!

6. Leelee Sobieski

We know Abercrombie to be the clothes of traditional American youth so you will be surprised to know that they let a French model for them. Despite this “glitch”, Abercrombie still made the right decision getting her to pose for them. Soon enough, Leelee had her fair share of attention in Hollywood after her modeling stint with A & F.
7. Trevor Donovan
Hot! The 90210 actor shows off his chiseled abs.
Trevor was able to make lots of cash out of his ripped body. Well, actually, he and the people of A & F both have made a fortune from his physique. In fact, the A & F ad is quite on point as they highlighted his amazing talents. In addition to modeling, Trevor is also making some buzz in the movie industry.

Jamie really looked good when he was young. Now, he look more like a serious guy with really heart melting stare. (Didn’t you just melt looking at this picture?) Well, it looks like A & F has capitalized in his gorgeous eyes. His bad boy appeal certainly have made some women shriek with delight.
9. Jennifer Lawrence
Once you see The Hunger Games, you will surely fall in love with this amazing lady! A & F has surely seen something in this girl even before she became on fire.

Jennifer Lawrence is about the biggest star in Hollywood right now. She does some modeling too on the side.
10. Lindsay Lohan
The poster child for lost innocence, Lindsay Lohan, posing for Abercrombie Kids in 1998.
Lindsay Lohan is probably one of the most successful child actresses in the Hollywood industry. That was before she got addicted to cocaine. Well during her pre-cocaine days, Lindsay can be seen hanging out with friends at an A&F ad. Even though Lindsay is not in a good place right now, we cannot forget the fact that she was one of the big names in the Disney industry.
11. Scott Eastwood
At first look, you will never ever realize that Scott is Clint Eastwood’s son. But when you look a bit closer, you will surely see the resemblance. He has his father’s gorgeous jaw and that heart melting stare that we have all come to love. Scott modeled for Abercrombie just last 2013.

12. Malin Akerman
It looks like Abercrombie has a thing for blonde hotties and that is how they have noticed this Swedish blonde. Abercrombie got it right when they let her posed for this shot because she is really hot! In fact, she is still steaming hot even though she got a bit old.

13. January Jones
Before playing submissive housewife Betty Draper, January posed submissively for A&F. Note the brand’s signature girl’s garment of the aughts: frayed denim miniskirt.
Before she got a role in Mad Men, January gamely posed for Abercrombie’s ads. After her modeling stint, she got a few great roles in movies including being Emma in X Men: First Class.
14. Karlie Kloss
This lady enrolled in ballet lessons when she was just a little girl. According to her, her ballet skills have helped her a lot in her modeling career. This may be the reason why she is one of the top highest paid model of today. You will be surprised to know that her first ever modeling stint is for Abercombie!

19. Tom Welling
Tom Welling was cast as Clark Kent in Smallville. The TV show was a great hit as it lasted for about ten seasons. Some people followed the entire series because of their love for Tom Welling. Before that, Abercrombie asked him to model for them because of his incredible physique.
Looking co-ed cozy in baggy PJ pants and a fleece sweater. Not many guys can pull off ’90s Tarzan hair AND grown-out blond highlights. Kudos to you, T.W.
20. Alison Pill
The 27-year-old actress was a natural back in the day.
In my personal opinion, Allison is not the typical gorgeous lady but Abercrombie surely saw something in her. Well, they were right as she looked incredibly gorgeous in their ads. How did they even do that? The staff really did a great job styling her!
Abercrombie & Fitch is good when it comes to choosing their models. It looks like they have psychics in their company that allows them to determine who has potential and who has not. So if you wish to become part of Hollywood, I suggest that you apply at Abercrombie first!
