Josie Maran was born and raised just outside San Francisco in Menlo
Park, and graduated from an all-girls private school. Although she now
resides in Manhattan, California will always be considered home.
Following the path of many other models, Maran did not initially aspire
to be a model. She was hanging out with her friends at a BBQ in her
hometown three years ago when a woman asked her to be in a fashion
show. This request was the beginning of her modeling career, since a
modeling agent at the show spotted Maran and encouraged her to start
Presently managed by the Elite Model Management, Maran has graced such
magazine covers as Fitness, Glamour and Teen, as well as Shape,
Seventeen, Stuff, and Sport. Apart from her work in the Guess?
advertising campaign, she also appeared in ads for Maybelline and
American Eagle Outfitters.
