Although at 5’7” she is often considered “too short” to be a successful model, that never stopped Josie Maran. Instead, after being discovered at the age of 12 at a local barbecue restaurant, Josie Maran went on to her first Glamour magazine cover in 1998.
After the first Josie Maran appearance in Glamour, she went on to be the featured Guess? Girl in their summer 1998 and fall 1998 campaigns. There was even a Josie Maran appearance in a Backstreet Boys music video in which she gets bitten on the neck by “Count Dracula” (played by Howie D). Maran then moved to New York City and continued her successful modeling career, including a Josie Maran appearance in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for three consecutive years.
**Josie Maran Speaker**
Perhaps ideas of marriage would make a perfect Josie Maran speaker topic. In a Josie Maran speaker appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Maran was quoted as saying “I don’t believe in marriage. I just don’t think it’s necessary in this day and age. I just think if you need to get married, then you’re already distrusting the person. Why do you have to sign something to show your love? You just love, everyday.”
**Josie Maran Appearance**
There was a minor Josie Maran appearance in the movie Van Helsing. She also briefly appeared in The Aviator. Maran is currently working to secure more acting appearances.
**Josie Maran Endorsement**
In 1999, Elite modeling agency helped secure a multi-year Josie Maran endorsement with Maybelline Cosmetics.
