Chrissy Teigen has reflected on the early days of her modelling career by sharing candid snaps with her social media followers.

Former model Chrissy, 35, took to Instagram to post a series of pictures from Miami Fashion Week in 2011, as she told her 33 million followers stories about her experiences when she started out in the industry.

"Was talking about my days of Miami fashion week and how it was basically my equivalent of walking Paris couture," Chrissy joked in the caption to the post, which featured snapshots of her on the runway. "200 bucks a show minus agency and I'd wait 5/6 hours sitting on the floor of the Mondrian to be seen.

"Booking a show at the Setai, walking over the pool, oh my god the excitement, C-class Naomi Campbell coming throughhhhhh!!!!!! Dinner with randos at Prime 112, ordering enough food to take home to eat for the week cause the fashion show money would disappear with agency fees. Sleeping in a two bedroom at the Flamingo with 5 other girls, MEMORIES!"

The Lip Sync Battle co-host began her modelling career when she appeared on the first season of the U.S. version of the hit game show Deal or No Deal, and went on to be named Rookie of the Year in 2010's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

She later featured on the 50th anniversary cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2014, and has fronted campaigns for Gap and Nike, as well as appearing on the covers of international editions of Vogue, GQ, and Cosmopolitan magazines.
