11 Inverted Triangle-Shaped Models Inspiring the Fashion World

We humans are uniquely created, and our body shapes differ from others. Some have an inverted triangle-shaped body, also known as the V-shape or strawberry shape, with a bigger upper body, especially the shoulders and burst, and a narrower waistline and hip, more like an inverted triangle.

Interestingly, most of these people are famous models and fashion icons that millions look up to for inspiration on dressing styles.

Here are our favorite models with this amazing body shape:

1.   Naomi Campbell

British supermodel Naomi Campbell began her modeling career at the age of 8. She was the first black woman to grace the cover of Vogue France and Time Magazine.

The 53-year-old v-shaped mother of 2 has graced almost every runway event you can think of and has modeled for who is who in the fashion world. This includes Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Dior, Luis Vuitton, Valentino, Tommy Hilfiger, Hermes, Victoria’s Secret, and Versace, to name a few.

2.   Cindy Crawford

Though 53-year-old American model Cindy Crawford isn’t modeling full-time anymore, her frequent appearances in fashion magazines prove she’s still a force to reckon with.

The V-shaped model has modeled alongside British supermodel Naomi Campbell (shared earlier), Canadian fashion model Linda Evangelista, and American fashion model Christy Turlington.

3.   Victoria Beckham

Most people know her as the wife of former English professional soccer player David Beckham.

However, Victoria Beckham is an established fashion icon and ambassador.

As a model and fashion ambassador, Victoria has modeled and worked for Diffusion, Dolce & Gabbana, Rocawear, and Rock & Republic, among other giant fashion brands.

4.   Elizabeth Hurley

British fashion model Elizabeth Hurley first debuted as a fashion model for American cosmetic company Estee Lauder in 1995, having no prior experience.

While the experience wasn’t great, the V-shaped model became a sought-after face, modeling for Lancel, Saloni, Jordache, Monson, and Shiatzy Chen, among other fashion brands.

5.   Uma Thurman

Talk of a woman who can juggle between the streets of Hollywood and the runway and still be a success. That’s Uma Thurman for you.

The V-shaped American mother of 3 got into modeling at 15 when she signed for Click Models. That saw her model for Glamour and Vogue magazines, Louis Vuitton fashion hose, and other big brand names.

6.   Giselle Bundchen

Giselle Bundchen is a Brazilian fashion model who’s among the highest-paid today.

In 2012, Forbes listed her as the top-earning model and the 89th most powerful woman in the world.

Giselle has it all: charm, beauty, an entrepreneurial mind, and an inverted triangle figure, which continues to be one of the driving forces for her modeling success.

7.   Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson is a famous Canadian media personality, actress, and model. Before getting into media and acting, Pamela began as a model, and she first graced the cover of Playboy Magazine in 1989.

She worked with Playboy for over 25 years, appearing more than any other model. Later, Anderson would grace the covers of Elle, Marie Claire, W, and Flare magazines.

8.   Charlize Theron

South Africa-born American actress Charlize Theron is another woman who has successfully juggled acting and modeling.

The V-shaped Hollywood sensation, who’s famous for hits like Mad Max Fury, Gringo, Fast X, and the Old Guard, first pursued modeling at 16 years when she won a contest while staying in Salerno, Italy.

Charlize, however, decided to move to Milan to try the runway. She migrated to the US a year later, where her career took a different turn.

Instead of pursuing modeling and her first love, dancing, she went the Hollywood way, and things turned out well.

9. Twiggy the Wonder Kid

We have to return to the 60s to introduce ourselves to a woman who once ruled the fashion world. Her name is Twiggy the Wonder Kid, and she is a supermodel inspired by the late English model Jean Shrimpton.

Following Shrimpton’s example, the V-shaped Twiggy kept her hair long like Twiggy and would charge up to £80 an hour. That saw leading magazines at the time, like Vogue, Newsweek, and the New Yorker, court her to be the face of their covers.

10. Angelina Jolie

Most people know her from Hollywood hits like Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Salt, The Tourist, Alexander, and The Bone Collector. However, American actress Angelina Jolie is more than just a Hollywood A-lister. She is also a fashion icon.

According to reports, Angelina Jolie is launching her clothing line, Atelier Jolie, which will showcase her craftsmanship as a fashion designer. The V-shaped mother of six has endorsed several fashion brands, notably French luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton and California-based knitwear St. John.

11. Cristiano Ronaldo

While Cristiano Ronaldo is famous for his on-field success as a soccer player and one of the best of his generation, he’s also one of the most influential fashion icons and V-shaped male models of this generation.

Cristiano Ronaldo models his socks and underwear lines, which he co-designs with New York-based designer Richard Chan. His fashion brands include premium CR7 signature shirts, shoes, and fragrances.

Styling Tips For Inverted Triangle Body Shape

To help you navigate fashion with confidence like these models, here are essential styling tips you can always leverage if you have an inverted triangle body shape:

  • Emphasize the waist: Opt for clothing that cinches at the waist to create definition and balance out broader shoulders.
  • V-necklines: Choose tops and dresses with V-necklines to draw attention away from the shoulders and elongate the upper body.
  • A-line skirts and dresses: Balance out wider shoulders with A-line skirts and dresses that flare out from the waist, creating a more proportional silhouette.
  • Darker tops, lighter bottoms: Opt for darker-colored tops and lighter-colored bottoms to visually minimize the upper body and draw attention downwards.
  • Wrap tops and dresses: Wrap styles help create the illusion of a smaller waist and add curves to the lower body, balancing out broader shoulders.
  • Wide-leg pants: Balance out broader shoulders with wide-leg pants that add volume to the lower body, creating a more proportionate silhouette.
  • Avoid shoulder pads: Steer clear of tops or jackets with shoulder pads, as they can exaggerate the width of the shoulders.
  • Statement jewelry: Draw attention away from the shoulders by accessorizing with statement necklaces or earrings.
  • Opt for tailored fits: Choose clothing with tailored fits that accentuate the waist and create a streamlined silhouette.
