Whitney Port turns 28 today!
Born in Los Angeles, Calif., Whitney Eve Port's first exposure to fashion was her father's fashion company, called Swarm.
She was in the cast for MTV's reality TV series The Hills when she was interning as fashion contributor at Teen Vogue. Port appeared together with Lauren Conrad, and Audrina Patridge in the show.
Port left The Hills in the fourth season, and MTV offered her a spin-off, entitled The City, which she received. She appeared together with socialite Olivia Palermo. Some parts of the show focused on Port creating, building, and launching her own line, Whitney Eve.
While she was shooting for The City, she also modeled for designer lines. Some of her experiences include modeling for DKNY Jeans in Los Angeles Fashion Week, modeling for Good Morning America to showcase Hilary Swank's 2005 Academy Award dress, and being on the covers of fashion magazines, such as Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Seventeen.
Other than fashion, Port also has released a book, entitled True Whit: Designing a Life of Style, Beauty, and Fun, an advice literature for her fans.
In 2012, she served as a judge on Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model, alongside supermodel Elle Macpherson, Julien MacDonald, and Tyson Beckford.
