Blessed with a really beautiful face and gorgeous body, Kate Bock is a Canadian model who is regarded to be one of her country’s finest stars in the industry. Having started modeling since she was really little, she has grown to become a fan favorite, having stunned people by gracing the pages of major magazines.
The blonde model was introduced to the industry even before she became a teenager and is known for boldly flaunting her alluring body. Her journey to prominence as a model is surely one that is worth talking about.
The Fascinating Story of how She was Discovered
A West Vancouver native, Kate Lynne Bock was born on January 30, 1993, in Canada and grew up there. Since she was a child, Kate Bock possessed qualities that easily made for a great career as a model. She was tall and slim and had a very beautiful face. In fact, talking about this once during an interview with Hamptons, Bock revealed that she was the tallest person in her class as a child and this was very awkward for her at the time.
Growing up, Bock attended West Vancouver Secondary School before relocating to Paris to fully pursue her modeling career.
Kate Bock was discovered in a really interesting and rather unexpected manner. One day, when she was just 12 years old, she went to a swimming pool in her hometown of West Vancouver to compete as a swimmer.
While at the swimming pool, a modeling scout called Liz Bell who was also present at the scene sighted her and was impressed by her build. Bell quickly reached out to Bock and introduced her to modeling. As expected, Bock’s career kicked off soon after meeting Liz Bell.
In fact, just one week after she was discovered by Bell, Kate Bock started working with Abercrombie Kids, a clothing brand, and at mall fashion shows.
Bock’s Growth as a Model
After her graduation from high school, she left Canada and moved to Paris in order to effectively pursue her modeling ambitions. Having attended a French school, she could speak English and French fluently at this time, so she did not find it too hard to cope in France. She lived with other models before things picked up for her.
At first, she was made to live with three roommates inside a tiny model apartment which had two bunk beds. She and the other models also had to attend many castings every day for roles. The casting sessions ranged from 5 to 10 or even 15 every day.
Eventually, she began to land many modeling gigs and started to make some buzz and today she has come quite a long way from the girl who first worked in mall fashion shows. She started making appearances in major magazines, stunning fashion fans with her poses.
Worthy of note are appearances in prestigious magazines such as Maxim and Elle. Kate Bock has also covered other magazines including Ocean Drive, Elle Canada and Fitness, and Maxim.
The Canadian model who is currently signed to Elite Model Management NY and managed by Lizbell Agency has also modeled for Victoria’s Secret.
After her first appearance in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Kate Bock was voted ‘Rookie of the Year’ in 2013. She went on to feature in the magazine between 2013 and 2016. In addition to her modeling career, Kate is also a jewelry designer with the brand name Cattura Jewelry.
