Born on July 30, 1994, Elizabeth Cameron Turner — better known as Elizabeth Turner — is a professional model who works with prominent brands. She was raised in Atlanta, Georgia, and was a valedictorian of her high school class. She graduated from Duke University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in English. According to some websites, Turner is also an established canoeist, but most of these websites are referring to her winning a medal in 1981, a year she wasn’t even born. So this is most likely misinformation.
She has often said that if she was not modeling, she would have studied for a Ph.d. in psychology, and that her most prized possession is her Duke diploma. According to her Linkedin profile, she has also worked briefly as an anchor at Duke Student Broadcasting at Griffin, Georgia. She has also worked as an intern at the Nasher Museum of Art.
Turner is very secretive about her family, so there isn’t much information about it online, except that we know she has a younger sister Sarah and a brother named Harrison.
Turner’s modeling career started pretty early on while she was still in high school. The big moment came when she was featured in Teen Vogue and Seventeen magazines in 2010. Between 2010 and 2012, she featured in a number of campaigns in magazines that included South and departmental chains such as Kohl’s and Belk. She was being represented by Atlanta’s Factor Women Model Management.
Following her graduation in 2014, Turner swung her attention full time to modeling and was signed up by reputed talent agencies such as Elite Model Management, Wilhelmina Models and LA Models. Her big break came soon when she was signed up by GUESS, which is known to be a big career move for names such as Naomi Campbell, Kate Upton and Anna Nicole Smith. She has modeled for Guess jeans and their lingerie line. Another big career push came when she became one of the interviewees with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Candidacy.
Turner has done shoots for @cervezacristal, a prominent Peruvian beer brand, and has stated on her Instagram page that visiting Peru was an excuse to practice her Spanish, and she has stated that the country is a virtual paradise. Her other work includes modeling for Lulu Fama, Jockey International and PacSun. She has appeared in several magazines such as the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, GQ and Maxim.
On Social Media
Turner is pretty active on her Instagram account and posts regularly. She has over 900k followers (just shy of 1 million) on the social media platform, which has tons of professional and personal pictures. She is also known to endorse well-known brands on her Instagram feed. She has listed her hobbies as watching movies and reading.
Her Instagram followers are up to date with where she is going and what assignment she is on. She also has a Facebook page, but she is not very active there.
Her fans are well-aware of her painting skills, and she has revealed that she is fond of gaming.
In one of her videos, she says that workouts are a huge part of her life and stated that kickboxing is the hardest form of cardio. She maintains that working out is the key to being sane and being healthy.
She has said that apart from boxing, she loves Barre workouts, and the two combined forms of exercises have changed her body and made her into what she is. She says that working out is essential for mental health and makes her at ease with her life.
Turner is a known animal lover and that reflects in some pictures of her with them on her Instagram feed. In has said in an interview that people turning vegan is her greatest joy, because she loves animals. A vegan herself, she has said that being one keeps her energized throughout the day and never lets her feel bogged down.
In February 2019, Turner appeared nude in PETA’s (People for the Ethical Treatment for Animals) Body by Vegan campaign, promoting veganism.
The SnapChat Episode
In September 2014, Turner, along with her sister Sarah sued Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel. The lawsuit came 3 years after the sisters had shot for an alleged college photoshoot, which later turned out to a campaign to launch the social media app.
The suit alleged that the Snapchat co-founder “misused” their pictures to promote the app without their permission. It said that the pictures were originally taken to promote an iPhone app called Picaboo, and a model release was also signed for the same, but the app was later renamed Snapchat. The app had a feature that made shared photographs disappear after a specified time.
Turner alleged that she was approached by Spiegel (who was then a student at the Stanford University) in 2011, asking her to be a part of a “class project” by modeling for free. Turner responded that she would do it only if she was accompanied by her sister Sarah.
The sisters were photographed a few days later at the Santa Monica Pier and at Spiegel’s home. The sisters also duly signed a model release form regarding the same. In their lawsuit, the sisters said that they had only agreed their pictures for the iPhone app, but it was widely used across websites and Android. They also said that they never knew their pictures would be manipulated; one such picture suggests that one of the sister’s bikini tops was being pulled off and that they were photographed in the nude.
As of 2016, the case was still in court.
Turner is very secretive about her personal life and relationships and has kept her love life private. There have been some media reports linking Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio, but most of these reports have just been speculation. There is no substantiating evidence linking The Revenant star to her. The model seems aloof to media queries regarding her personal life.
