Rachel Hilbert has achieved so much in her modeling career in such a short time. She has already rubbed shoulders with industry greats like Gigi Hadid. The dimpled beauty earned her big break in 2015 when she got signed to be the spokesmodel and face of Victoria’s Secret younger line, PINK. Let’s explore her life and career thus far.
Rachel Hilbert Bio (Age and Other Background Details)
Rachel Leigh Hilbert was born on March 14, 1995, in Webster, New York, a suburb of Rochester. A natural athlete, as she’s once described herself, one of her favorite things to do when she was young was dance. As she grew, she got more serious and took classes in a variety of genre from tap to jazz and ballet. When she wasn’t dancing, Rachel would be found out in the snow skiing.
She was so good in skiing that she even competed in her high school – Webster Thomas High School from where she would graduate in 2013. Dancing her way through life, Rachel was more often than not, told how she was tall and had the perfect body for a model. During her sophomore year in high school, she decided to give modeling a shot.
The good thing was that her mom was supportive of her choice and even accompanied her to New York during spring break to try out for a couple of New York modeling agencies. Rachel proved to be a natural in front of cameras and it didn’t take long before she landed a berth in one of the agencies. It was during an open call in New York and she was just 16 years old at the time.
So Rachel began doing photo shoots and two years later, Victoria’s Secret came calling. “…it was probably one of the best things that’s ever happened in my career,” she told Modeliste in an interview.
After an initial in-house photo shoot with VS, she was offered the job to be the new face of their youth-focused PINK label. And that was how Rachel Hilbert broke into the mainstream. That top job saw many top media outlets line up to get a first-hand interview with her. She then became an angel, putting up her wings first at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and then the other shows that followed.
Shortly after her PINK job, Rachel combined forces with Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson to host a PINK Spring Break event. Rachel can now boast of fronting campaigns with big names like Urban Outfitters, Delia*s, Macy’s and Kohls. She has graced magazines like Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Elle and more.
Rachel has achieved so much in a very short time frame. She is having fun traveling the world holding photo shoots and of course growing her bank accounts. She is also trying new things. In 2015, she made an appearance in the second season of the ace TV series Younger.
As of this writing, Rachel Hilbert’s net worth is estimated at $800,000, a figure that is certain to rise should she keep up with her current pace. We’re looking forward to seeing her on the next Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid models.
Relationship with Brett Eldredge
Rachel seems to have a soft spot for musicians, and why not, she is, after all, a dancer. She sparked dating rumors in July 2015 when she was spotted hanging out in a Miami beach with country singer Brett Eldredge. Prior to that time, she had featured on his music video for Lose My Mind where she acted as a nurse and even shared a kiss with him.
The rumors of the two being a thing received more fuel when Rachel posted a few cute snaps of herself and the country star on her gram. However, the two remained tight-lipped about the rumors until it died down. In an interview with CBS in November 2015, Eldredge confirmed his relationship status to be single.
Part of his statement read; “…But I’m being single right now just taking my time and trying to find the right thing.”
Before rumors of her being with Eldredge, Rachel was said to have briefly dated pop singer Cody Simpson, neither party confirmed the relationship.
